In an opening chapter of this book which I read a year or two ago, the author describes a meeting/discussion with Google's Brin and Page, during which one of them refuses to take his eyes off the mobile device he's holding (if memory serves, the author requests the Googler to be present and not distracted/have his attention split by his little device, to which the latter responds laconically in the negative).

I need a bookmarklet, preferably, that will send an email with the current page as an attachment -- not just the link, the actual file. Bonus if you can pre-specify the email address (or otherwise make it 1-click). [more inside]

I have been running a Facebook group since 2012 and I got a grant to do research with the findings from it. I need to download the group's postings and responses into a table and thinking the most reliable way to do so is with SQL. However, I have only just started with SQL and although I have found some ideas on Github for doing it, have no idea how to get started with pulling the information. I am seeking advice and possible alternatives. Can you help?

For much of my childhood, the annual airing of ABC Stage 67
's Emmy-winning production of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory
, starring the absolutely incomparable Geraldine Page
, was at the very core of how my family understood Christmas. In my time, it aired on local PBS stations. Sometime in the 80s, though, it disappeared, and is only available in a black & white version of questionable quality
. What happened, and where did it go? How can we recover this treasure and share it with a broader audience? [more inside]

I have a HP Pavilion dv6700 (dv6780se) laptop which i recently upgraded to Windows 7 pro via a free copy from the msdn alliance. I am currently running 3 gigs of physical RAM in 2 slots. I recently read an article suggesting a change to the virtual memory paging file size. From what i gathered you should or can increase the size by multiplying the current amount times 1.5.
This would change my total virtual memory to 4605, is this wise?
Should i leave it on the save hard drive has my OS or move it to a partition or separate external hard drive?
I've also read that readyboost can increase performance... is this still quite debatable for Windows 7 and am I already pushing the limits of my RAM and virtual memory?

I am trying to create a professional looking logo for a Web site. I am using GIMP but finding I am very limited in terms of what I can do with it. Is there a software package that I should be using that will allow me to create a good looking logo/header image? I understand Photoshop is the best however, it's really expensive (700.00). Are there any software alternatives or do I just have to pony up for Photoshop?
By the way, I have a PC.

I know you can create custom error pages (via htaccess) for specific sites but is there a way to create a custom 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' page on the browser side with Explorer? I was thinking it might be nice to include a link to google cache of the page or perhaps automatically redirect Explorer to that page.
