Long time ago I used to have a wishlist on this site.Â If I remember correctly, I even had a few.Â It was a rather helpful piece of information for the times when I was doing online shopping, as well as for my friends and family before the big holidays (hint: presents).
There were two problems with keeping up a wishlist.Â One was rather small – people couldn’t find it easily, since it was hidden in the archives.Â And one big – it was a lot of effort to keep it up-to-date.Â I kept losing it myself all the time, and I was always forgetting to update it.Â Â These two problems caused it to finally be lost in the sea of other posts on this blog, and, probably, never to be found again.
I’m glad to say though, that a better version of my wishlist is back.Â It’s something that I wish I had years ago.Â It’s dead simple, easy to see (no registrations required or anything of such non-sense), and it’s also extremely easy for me to keep updated.Â This new wishlist is on del.ishli.st.
The name sounds good, but the link is impossible to remember, much like the original del.icio.us one.Â del.ishli.st is a very simple, yet very smart way of wishlisting.Â It utilizes my del.icio.us account and the “wishlist” tag, which is something very natural to use for tagging items of the wishlist.Â And so that I won’t try to remember the URL, or, even worse, attempt to type it, or lose this wishlist in the history of posts once again, I decided to make a big and important link to it, at the top of the site.Â Yes, that’s right, you can see it together with the rest of the main navigational menu.

I agree the URL is hard to remember. I’ve heard Delicious will move over to delicious.com when they launch their rewritten site; I was planning on changing to delishlist.com at the same time. Actually http://delishlist.com/tvset works already â€“ it just redirects.
thanks for the tip. And for the site :)
Keep up the good work.
