I'd like to introduce you to another little side project of mine, ("Tiny Gus"). is a quick way of linking to places on the internet, using the power of Google's I'm Feeling Lucky feature. If someone is asking you about "All your base are belong to us," you would probably fire up Google, search for ["All your base"], click on the first result, copy the resulting url, and then paste it into your message. That's too much work. Now, you can just type into your im/e-mail and fire it away. When your friend clicks the link, they'll automatically be directed to the first Google result for ["All your base"]. It's as easy as pie.

For more information, check out If you don't understand how works, or have comments on how it could work better, let me know (techwalla(a) Enjoy!

New website

I now have a static page which explains the basics of PartyChat with an FAQ. Check it out. In the mean time, I'll continue to make announcements and give tips in this blog.

PartyChat Tip #2

PartyChat works with Gmail Chat. Also, all your conversations are logged to your Gmail account, including messages you missed when you were not logged in.
