Face eCards – eCards are probably still the easiest way to send a creative holiday greeting to a loved one. You can simply select a holiday, then a template, do some tweaking to customize it, and you have a card ready to e-mail within seconds. GotFreeCards, an eCard service that we are well familiar with, added a new fun feature called Face eCards. This lets you upload your face and place it on a pre-designed animated eCard to make it more personal. There’s nothing cooler than your own face in a cartoon eCard.

    Need help with opening Diagram.ly. This is the message i get:
    ‘If you are reading this, you might have blocked a required third-party domain (sencha.com), or your browser is not capable of displaying the application. The supported list of browsers is Firefox 1.5 and later, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and later, Safari 3.0 and later, Opera 9.0 and later, Camino 1.0.2 and later, Iceape 1.0 and later, Epiphany 2.0 and later, Galeon 2.0 and later and Google Chrome 3.0 and later on all supported operating systems.’

    I am using Firefox 4 and never have come across ‘sencha’ before. i thought maybe Adblock had something to do with it, but even after disabling it, i get the same message.

    and any possibility of a Faveous invite?

    New “cool Website and tools” thumbnails is not as good as previous one. its nice but not as previous one..

  • Ohwolfman

    I miss not having thumbnails of the featured websites. I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I find that I click on far fewer links than I used to because I don’t get a preview of the site.

    • Mark O’Neill

      I’m confused. There’s thumbnails next to every link and description above!
