Making text anchors within a PDF to another part of the PDF?

On the first page of a PDF, there are references to pages included at the end of the document. I'm sure there is a way to make a link on the first page that will take you to another page in the PDF but I can't flippin' figure it out. I'm ripping my hair out.

Acrobat has jumbled my pdfs!

I need to read a series of pdfs tonight - the trouble is, the resolution on them is messed up so as to be nearly illegible. Reading all of these will surely make my eyeballs shrivel up & fall out. With only access to Acrobat Reader, is there anything I can do to increase the readability of these pdfs - a way to change from color to b&w, increase the sharpness - anything? [more inside]

Export Google Desktop Cache to PDF?

Is there a way to export my Google Desktop cache of webpages into PDF or plain text files? I frequently update my computer and although I include my Google Desktop indexes in my backups, for all practical purposes the browsing history is lost since there is no method to import a Google Desktop Index (You can restore an entire backup, but not import one into another). I'd like to be able to keep a PDF or plain text history of every web page I've visited. I've installed the PDFCreator toolbar, which allows one-click saving of a webpage, so I can save my history from here on, but I'd love to reach back in time and resurrect my browsing history stored in the Google Desktop Index.

US Kindle 2 in Europe
