Gotta Run Now!

What's the name of that song that you play on your running playlist that makes you push yourself further? You know the one - you're jogging at a decent, steady pace and then it comes on and mentally you go "Oh, YES!" and suddenly everything seems to get a lot more awesome and you are running full pelt with a huge grin on your face.

Proper GET/POST Design for Deleting Items on a Web Page

I'm designing a webpage that will have a list of items and each item can be deleted. I was thinking to have the delete command be link to a URL that does the delete when called.
