Looking for a user script to improve the tumblr dashboard: 5-6 columns?

I'm hoping to find a user script for Tumblr that will go from the default 1 column layout to something that has 5-6 columns to take advantage of my widescreen monitor. I've found a userscript that gets partway there ("minimal three column layout"), but it suppresses the Like & Repost buttons. I've tried modifying it to have 5 columns instead of three, but I don't know java for beans. Would someone in the hivemind be able to tweak this appropriately, or know another way to get a better layout?

Reverting to Java 6 from Java 7 (Mac)

Asking for a friend: There is an online grading platform that apparently only runs on Java 6, but he has a mid-year 2012 MacBook Pro unibody (13") and it came with Java 7 installed. He needs to be able to enter grades at home, which means he needs Java 6. Both of us are good with technology (and searched Google for information), but the links we found often referred to computers where Java 6 was installed, and then was replaced with Java 7. Help?

How to "copy on drag" text in Windows 7?

I need to copy text between a commercial text editor (TextPad 6.1.3 by Helios) and a home brew program used by my company. When I try to do this now, the highlighted text is moved/cut rather than copied. Is there a Windows 7 or TextPad setting I can use to force the behavior to copy rather than cut the text?

Indie programmer or call-center drone? A false dilemma disguised as hope?

JSP/servlets whoas and woes

JavaFilter: I've pored over dozens of tutorials and read Head First Servlets and JSP. I thought I understood how to utilize servlets in order to generate dynamic content. I can get a simple form/one page site going but am at a complete loss when trying to come up with a design for a full web application. My boss wants a demo by the end of the week (he has seen the single pages, now wants them to work together). My anxiety levels are skyrocketing as it has become clear I don't know what I'm doing.

Where did my Little Java Link Go ?

I found a great Java programming site awhile back. I was given a programming task and could get immediate feedback on whether or not it was correct. Tasks were things like, test if two integers are equal and 'reverse a string'. It was targeted toward learning .. but I seem to recall the tasks had advancing levels of complexity. This is not Java BlackBelt. I can't believe I didn't bookmark it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

How to Make One Menu Choice Assign Three Variables in an HTML Page?

I understand that this may sound fairly customized. I have a feeling, though, that for someone who programs Javascript, these issues are probably both extremely common and extremely simple, which is why I'm asking here ... since perfecting this quirk could really help my efficiency.

jvmemorypig

Okay, so I have a java program that's supposed to run in the background all the time. The problem is that the JVM allocates all the memory it can use, and then just sits there taking up a half-gig of ram. Is there any way I can get the thing to GC aggressively and release memory back to the system when it's done? [more inside]
