I'm looking for inspiration on how to reduce computer clutter. I run a lot of machines and make them do a lot of cool things, but in a 92sqm apartment where we're also trying to manage massive DVD, magazine, and book libraries, and where my previous work station (which was never all that orderly) has been conquered by my girlfriend's rampaging makeup and sewing stuff, it ain't easy. I want to compartmentalize, organize, and speed up the process of accessing my stuff. Ideas? [more inside]

How can I make Firefox on OS X not clutter up my desktop? Every time I click on a file, I get that open or save dialog box. If I choose open, it saves a copy of the file to my desktop, then opens the desktop copy. I don't want Firefox to save anything to my desktop unless I choose the save option. [more inside]

I'm pregnant. Joy! My husband and I live in a small apartment and have brainstormed many ways to make more space for the required baby paraphernalia, and the play space the baby will eventually require. But I wonder, is there a polite way to ask well-meaning friends and family to please not give us a lot of big, plastic clutter which will quickly eat up this hard-found space? [more inside]
yes - no - maybe - maybe yes - maybe no - maybe maybe - wait - can't decide - what to do first? - was that wrong? - was that right?
Ever been so overwhelmed that it paralyzed you? How did figure out what to do first? How did you get it all done? [more inside]
In my ongoing struggle against cable clutter, I've been on the lookout for short firewire cables. At both work and home I have stacks of firewire drives, and the one to three foot cables that they come with are far longer than is necessary. Since these drives are almost always daisy chained and stacked on top of each other, I think there's a real market for four or six inch firewire cable, but it's nowhere to be found. Am I missing an obvious source? Are there firewire cable kits similar to cat-5 kits?
I'm trying to clear up some of my clutter by selling a couple of boxes of comics. There's no Action Comics #1 in the bunch, but several 1st issues and runs from the 70's and 80's, in mostly good condition. I'm currently cataloging them, but does anyone have suggestions of methods and/or a good place to sell them as a batch for cash or credit (so I can get bound reprints or graphic novels)?
Thanks in advance.
