I found fresh raccoon droppings in my backyard this morning. Yuck. I carefully scooped out the mess and some surrounding pebbles (about 8 x 8 inches total), double bagged it, poured about a gallon of freshly boiled water around the area, and added a couple of cups of bleach for good measure. (The shovel got boiling water, too.) Results. But given the fact that I'd rather not have residues of dried up shit and roundworm in my yard, should I remove more of the pebbles and re-treat the broader area with boiling water?
A friend donated 200+ CDs to our community radio station. I want to rip them into our system, but don't have time to track each and every song for explicit lyrics. Is there an easy way for me to check online to see if any tracks on each CD is marked as explicit? I know when I search iTunes, I see a red E to indicate such, but am not sure if there is another source out there of which I am not familiar.

I'm trying to hotlink a button to take in-game screenshots on my Macbook Pro with Boot Camp running Windows 7. But every application I try seems to miss the game playing entirely! It shows the desktop and other running applications and not the game at all. I've tried MWSnap 3, Screenshot Utility 1.0, and Screenshot Pilot. They all failed. How do I take screenshots of this video game, before I lose my mind?
