Do you wish you could search any site from an open browser? I found a cool feature in FireFox that lets you do just that. Here is how:
- Go to a site that you search a lot like IMDB, Amazon, or Wikipedia.
- Right click on the search box and select “Add a keyword for this search”.
- Then pick a name and a keyword for the search.
- Now whenever you want to search that site all you have to do it type the keyword followed by your search term in the address bar.
I have been using this a lot this week. When I wanna search Amazon I just type “a” followed by the search term, Wikipedia, “w” followed by search term. It’s simple and easy and I don’t think many people know about it.
Man it was a crazy weekend. I ate way to much ham, turkey, and lamb. It was a long ass day at work today. I am to tired to post anything worthwhile. I’m going to bed early tonight.
Oh yeah, I have a zit in the worst possible place…on my nut sack!
I will gone all weekend. Going to the Fall Out Boy, All-American Rejects & Hawthorne Heights concert Friday, and hanging out with friends and family the rest of the weekend.
I just mailed out checks for 0ver $900 for our taxes.
Cool shirt. It says hate, but when you look at in a mirror is says love.

Man it was nice out today. Last time I checked it got up to 72º. We spent most of the afternoon outside. The snow is now officially out of our yard. We got all our outside stuff set up. Tomorrow we will be cranking up the grill. Mmmm, steaks on the grill. I can smell them already.
Since a got my new iPod with video a while back I have been slowing adding the artwork for all my 12,000 songs. It has taken me some time and was slow going. Corripio is a nice little program that I found today that made it easy and I finished them up real quick. It grabs the artwork from iTunes and then adds it to the mp3s. It’s only for the Mac, but if you are looking to add artwork to your mp3s, this is the way to do it.
Maybe it’s the geek in me, but I just spent an hour at this site reading all about the different elements. And how cool is that Periodic Table with all the samples in it?
I love my Mac. My next computer is going to be anoter Mac. I still run windows for a few things though. Soon I will be able to run Windows on my Mac. I can’t wait.

Now there is a “lawn chair”. It would be could to build one of these. The down side…You can’t move them so you better put it where you what to sit. Link (via Make)
Having a hard time finding a good domain name? Think all the good ones are taken? I think there are some good ones out there, but with GoDaddy’s rock bottom prices I think they are going fast. Want to get your name? Chances are it’s gone already. I knew I should have bought my last name back in the day, but I didn’t feel like spending $35 on something I wasn’t sure I needed. Want a sort domain name? All the three letter ones are gone and there are few four letter ones left. Here is a nice article with all kinds of stats about domain names. Link (via boingboing and waxy)
Season 4 of Penn & Tellers: Bullshit! starts today. Bullshit! is one of my favorite shows. I don’t have Showtime so I will be downloading the torrent tomorrow.
I love the feeling of digging in my ears, but I am always afraid that I am going to dig to deep. I need one of these. Then I wouldn’t have to worry about hitting brain, and I would have clean ears.
I didn’t do much this weekend, but I did get caught up on all my stuff. Tivo is empty, vidcasts all watch, and podcasts were all listened to. It’s the first time that I have been totally caught up with everything in months. A few podcasts just came in so I wasn’t caught up for long, but it was nice.
Since I was caught up I had a chance to play with some cool new ajax sites. I played around with 30 Boxes quite a bit. It is a super cool calendaring site. I so want to use it, but I really don’t need it. My life isn’t that complicated.
The other two sites I played around with are ajaxWrite and ajaxSketch. AjaxWrite is a cool online word processor and ajaxSketch is a online paint program. I love all the new ajax sites that are popping up. So much cool stuff, but so little time to play with them all. Now I think I am going to listen to TWiT before I go to bed.
Man the day sure goes by fast when it is an hour shorter.
Thank god April 2nd is finally here. I was getting a little annoyed by all the fake news stories. I went through my newsreader and it seemed like every feed was a joke. Wikipedia has a nice list of all the April Fools shenanigans from this year.
Don’t you hate it when you want to print something off the web, but the website is poorly designed and you end up printing 42 pages for something that should fit on 1? Well, from now on you will be wasting less paper. You can use the Click2Zap Bookmarklet to print only what you want to print.
They had to do a study to learn this?
In a study done by the Templeton Foundation, researchers found that the heart patients that were “prayed for” had a slightly higher rate of complications.

I am back. The break from blogging was very helpful. I just wasn’t into it and needed a break. I have been kinda missing it lately though and what better day to start then April 1st. I wiped everything out and am starting completely fresh. I am loving the newest version of WordPress too.
