I you liked StumbleUpon, you might want to take a look at Outfoxed (http://getoutfoxed.com/). It's made as a Firefox extension and allows you to put thumb up/down on the pages you visit.

What is different about this is that the feedback you get in your browser depens on the feedback of people you've added in your safe-list. You can also determine how different levels of people you are looking into. Quite cool! And the theory behind it (network theory) is miles ahead of most things that are done currently.

Strange you haven't heard of GnuCash. Anyway, just wanted to mention that it is a very good application. I've been using it for many years.

I'm a big fan of your blog, but just have to make a comment about your statement concerning the "pen in space". Unfortunately this is an urban legend that is not true -- the US used pencils and didn't spend a dime on pen development -- this was a private development by a pen company. Check snopes.com for more info.

Keep up the good work with OpenOffice!

D'oh! OK, well, I'll continue to use the analogy with the preface "you know that urban legend about the US and space pens?" ;>

Thanks for clearing that up,


That analogy works great! FYI - Your tips and tricks have saved me lots of time and energy and I recommend your site to friends and colleagues on a regular basis.


Thanks, Phil! I'm glad the blog helps and I appreciate the recommendations.

Hey, I was reading through your blog and noticed that you too are a fan of Stumble Upon! Something else you might want to try is a tool being put out by Dumbfind.com call the ranDUMBizer. It is similar to Stumble Upon (and was inspired by it), except it helps you find site similar to one another.
Try using them in tandem, when you see a site you like in StumbleUpon, click the ranDUMBizer bookmarklet and it will find something else that is
related. The ranDUMBizer helps you find things you are looking for, but don't know how to search for. Very beta, but often very very interesting.
