update to homepage backgrounds - collage of images

So. Many. Beautiful. Backgrounds.

April 18, 2024

As a follow-up to the new background shuffle button (from Mar 27), I've made quite a few improvements to the beautification of your homepage.

80+ new UHD backgrounds that are more amazing than ever, have been added/replaced prior under utilized images.

Just for fun: "Fantasy" category added, for some cool and interesting A.I. and user created content.

Holiday images (which will return later) has been replaced by the NEW tab. So take a look!

For anyone that uses the Surprise Me Daily background rotation, this upgrade will be extra great for you. No more Santa Claus in July! 😂

It both elimates holiday pics off-season, and weighs beauty as your daily inspiration. Hopefully this makes you happy.

Have a great day! 😎

homepage update

Expanded Business Tools

April 10, 2024

I have added to, and moved the business websites, from the Google Suite section of the homepage (in footer) to the [ Business / Docs ] section.

This includes Google Sheets, Docs, Azure, Google Analytics, and many more sites for your business needs.

This expansion is just the beginning. And it was done to hopefully help keep your personal and work websites under two more clearly defined sections.

This has been resolved, and you can now refresh your browser (or hit F2) on any device to update your settings to your most recent customization settings.
