John Mcphee wrote about a nifty custom word processor in Wired 7.01
that allowed him to code his notes and reassemble them by topic. What other cool, specialized word processors do you know about? [more inside]

Is there a financial software program that would be able to break down a company's quarterly or annual financial report so the information would be more understandable for a layman? I am seeking to enter numbers into this software package and have the software analysis the company financial strength.

Is there a piece of software I can use to allow public users to add "connections" between multiple objects/words? I'm thinking of a project that would probably end up looking like the ThinkMap Visual Thesaurus (http://www.visualthesaurus.com/). Any thoughts? [more inside]

Last month in Wired, David Weinberger mentioned
a research project at Stanford that "compares photos with shots of known locations, automatically annotating snaps with information about where they were taken."
Anyone know what he's talking about? I can't seem to turn up any more information about the project.

Stupid annoying WinXP question. I installed an older program I use for data analysis in my lab. Every time I click the start menu it shows up as a newly installed program, despite the fact that I've used it quite a bit. I want it to go away and show up as an old program, not highlighted like a new one. The only help I can find using my formidable Google-Fu is "Turn off new program notification". Well, I don't want to do that; I like to know if something new has been added to my machine. Anyone know how XP marks programs as newly installed, or highlighted, and how to turn this off on an individual entry basis
rather than across the board?
