Our 2,000th link -- honoring our heroes, the veterans

By Rick Morris

Our FDH Ultimate Links Page has been growing in stature for quite some time, living up to its billing as the ultimate home on the Internet for useful and entertaining links. Belying our start as a purely-sports company, our sports links now account for barely over 41% of the overall total. A breakdown of our composition is below.

But first, our announcement about the website chosen to serve as the 2,000th link added to the page. Knowing that we would be approaching that milestone somewhere in the vicinity of Memorial Day, we chose to use it to embrace the true meaning of the holiday. Our 2,000th link is Veterans Tribute, with a URL of, the most well-rounded site of this nature that we could find. We salute them for the work that they have done in paying proper tribute to our ultimate heroes and we wish them countless hits to their website and any other measures of success that they can generate.
