Space new image of the day
Google Map looks the best.
Hack: Window Registry Edit to make Gmail the default mail handler should work but the file paths are not updated, so I have corrected and optimized it. Somehow it seems that a local file (dll / exe) is needed to direct email requests to a web mail and in this case gnotify.exe of Google Notifier is needed. If Google Notifier is installed, simply download this registry file and merge by opening it. Change the paths before merging if Firefox or Google Notifier are not in their default directories, or if Firefox is not used.
It should work for the default browser "send link", browser initiated email compose, mailto links and commands, plus change the email icon in Windows XP start menu to Gmail (this can be removed afterwards). "Google Gmail" is chosen in the Internet options, and emails are directed to the more secure https Gmail.

Meet Tim Westergren, founder and CEO of Pandora.com. Hear how he took his passion for music and "street" knowledge of business and made it his career. Presented by the Career Center and the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.Yahoo! LAUNCHcast has been around for 6 years and ranks music by user ratings, while but Pandora, a start-up company, hires music experts to categorize music in the Music Genome Project. I haven't used the former but Pandora should be better, at least since the former cannot be opened in Firefox and the latter run on Flash. Zhu Min and I often let this free online music box open now.
Got 3 clothes from Tim too.

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Puzz3D (857 pieces) "donated" by my roommate since it was too challenging. He got it from another friend who obviously didn't build it too. Fun activity during the fall break!
There are hooking holes on the surface invisible here for hanging from the ceiling. Don't have wires yet.

Auto close tabs of unwanted sites. Simple one line script takes advantage of GM to automatically detect your given sites and close them. Just change the included pages to whatever you want to close.
Every time I connect to the Internet, I am redirected to a login page (https://wireless-gw.engin.umich.edu/login.pl) where Firefox fills in the password for me and AutoLogin (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/750) press the login button, and then an unwanted page (http://www.bluesocket.com/) appears which is immediately closed by this script.
Thanks to http://www.interwebby.com/blog/2006/02/04/3/ and ‘zenith’.
