One of the annoying "features" of the Win98 Active Desktop is that the highest frequency for refreshing active content is every hour. NewsHub (http://www.newshub.com) offers a cool workaround. It's a service that updates links to a wide variety of news and information every 15 minutes. Use NewsHub as active content, and you won't have to rely on Win98's subscription update schedule.
