user.name, what does it all mean?

Please tell me everything I need to know about the GMail dot feature (placing - or not placing - a dot in the username of a gmail email address). I don't understand it, how to use it, what it does and how to take advantage of it. As an email receiver and sender. Also, what problems are created with this? Is there a way I can use it to categorize email, both received and sent? [more inside]

Car to PA

Looking for people who have registered a car in PA. I've seen a bunch of different information and there are a lot of quirky requirements, so I'm asking for assistance. Do I have to change over the title and registration to PA from another state, or just the registration? Tracing paper? Really? Am I able to do this directly with the DOT or do I have to use an agent who tacks on additional fees? How does all this work for registering my car in PA from out of state? I know I need insurance, then I register it, then I need to get a bunch of tests done, but if someone knows the entire process because they've done it recently, I'd love to hear from you and get any tips or tricks. I am not looking for just links to the PennDOT website.

Dot-based "Fax Highlighter"? Am I insane?

When I was a kid, I found a bizarre pen at my grandmother's house. It was a marker with a roller on the tip and it created a dot pattern similar to zip-a-tone when you wrote with it. The ink was a dull purple, like Spider-Man's webbing in a comic book. She called it a "fax highlighter," but I've never been able to find such a thing in office supply stores or on the internet. It sure would be cool to have one for shading and creating a unique look in quick sketches. Help?

How to browse Listmania lists on Amazon?

I can't figure out a way to browse Amazon via Listmania lists. Is there any way to do this? They show up on nearly every book page I visit, but I'd like to browse through them by user and topic.
