Googlesharing is dead. Long live...the alternative?

The Firefox addon Googlesharing is now completely dead. It's not compatible with current and later versions of Firefox at all, even when hacking it to make the version numbers compatible. Firefox has a different method of proxying, or something. What's a good alternative? [more inside]

My brother has been looking for this short story for a while -- help me to make his Christmas! Details: A bully is tormenting everyone in school. The main character is a one-armed girl, who is generally disliked. A boy that she likes decides to stand up for everyone one day, and fights the bully. The bully beats him up, but the boy keeps getting up no matter how many times he gets hit. The crowd starts to root for the boy, and the bully starts to feel shaken.

restaurants in Madrid, Spain or roads exiting for 2 pm tomorrow?

At short notice we'll be flying into Barajas tomorrow at 11am, picking up family at Av De America bus station at 12.30 and driving down to Malaga. I haven't lived in Madrid for 20 years but I do know that restaurants around Principe de Vergara are unlikely to have come down in price! Are there smaller locations as we exit Madrid that would be better options for a family of 6? what's traffic like at this time of the year? what's the latest serving time? thanks..

Service like Optimizely's visual editor to design site?

I've learned that Optimizely has a pretty neat editor for designing a/b tests and that you can use the editor to do lots of fast and easy re-designs without modifying a site's code. Are there any services that solely focus on the "use our editor to re-design your site and paste this javascript to implement the design" bit?

Name this book filter?

Very vaguely remembered. UK paperback. Probably in the early 1970's London city businessman, company director living in a penthouse or private office apartment has a chinese mistress. For some reason he ends up digging a long ditch out in the country and this becomes a self realization. Very vague I know.
