Watch bookmarks as they are sent to here. Very cool, and lets you pounce on the neat ideas right away.

Finally, a filing method I can get behind

Sure it's a japanese way of doing things, and it requires A4 envelopes, but it makes sense.

The basic premise is that if you keep shifting things you read/access all the time to the left after you use them things will start shifting to the right. As such you get this lovely effect of those files that are super important, but never read, or files that you never read will move to the right where they can be picked up and sent into a more permanent storage.

Very wicked cool. And think of this, books that you refer all the time you could do the same thing. Every time you read a reference, take it and put it all the way to the left. Then those books you read all the time will become always the leftmost book (and it'll be easier for you to see that).

Gimp 2.4 Preview

Down here at Newsforge, where they've done a review of Gimp 2.4. It's going to be a tre sweet piece of software, with neat things like foreground extraction, which I've always had to do with things like bit masks or magic wands. This is much, much cooler. When it comes out, seriously, go get it. And the 2.4 version for Windows shouldn't be that far behind, for which I am eternally grateful.

How to open your home, with a Cell phone

Cue the Evil Mad-Genius music:

Open your Home, with your Cell Phone

It'll take some electronic skills and I'm sure a soldering iron, after all what sort of a tech geek are you if you can't solder something together with your eyes closed?

(FYI, I can't/haven't soldered a thing in my life.)

Web Development Bookmarklets

Which can be found here.
And did I mention that these are really handy. All of them work in
Firefox/mozilla and really help a person get a handle on various
things like what the page would look like if you were to change the
<body> attributes of the css.

For those Java Junkies

Try coding in HECL. Granted, if you are going scripting language, it might behoove you to learn something like perl, but to each their own.
