I recently started reading all my email on my smartphone. I still want to download every message in Thunderbird on my Mac (to archive it), but I don't want to manually mark everything as read after downloading it. Is there a way to either disable the "unread" flag, or auto-mark all new messages as read when they are received? [more inside]
Most "distracting" sites I can block by an entry in my etc/hosts file (Mac OSX 10.8.2). e.g.: 127.0.0.1 plus.google.com But this method doesn't seem to be able to block gmail. [more inside]

I would like to build and host a del.icio.us clone on my Mac (Intel iMac running Tiger). It need not be accessible outside of my machine, although if you can advise me how to do that while still keeping my machine secure, that would be a very nice plus. I am able to build simple command-line apps in Unix and puzzle some stuff out, but I am very much not a l33t hax00r. Can anyone walk me through the process very simple step by very simple step?

Here's my idea: I am working on a project that requires me to write 1,000 words a day. As a motivator, I want to have a BIG display that counts down the number of words I have left to go. My first idea was to have an LED display, clock radio style, attached via USB that would somehow retrieve the native count from MS Word and display it (in reverse, since word counts up - but a countup clock might also be OK.) Ideas on that would be great, but it also seems quite hard - so I thought maybe an Applescript that would simulate the display on my monitor would work. How to do this, I have no clue. :)
I'm looking for a web-based to-do application with a few very specific features, but, essentially, one that's almost a del.icio.us clone and is very much centralized not on categories, but on tags. [more inside]
