The bits of shiny one can find...

...by browsing the friendsfriends list :3

[001] BookCloseOuts.com is having a sale which includes Tokyopop manga titles for just 99 cents - as opposed to y'know, $10 or more >_>

[002] Three vids that completely PWN:
  • FullMetal Alchemist trailer! - pointed out by rewritten (♥)
    I'm not that big a fan of the art when it comes to facial features, but it looks brilliant anyway. The wait is KILLING ME.

  • Naruto - Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den Special! - watch on youtube here or download the short video over here - only took me a YEAR to watch this. Found via questofdreams
    KISHIMOTO, YOU KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF FAN SERVICE ♥

  • Font Conference - CollegeHumor did an anthromorphic fanvid XD
    Basically they took various famous fonts, turned them into people and put them in a video. Though I couldn't help wondering where Helvetica, Georgia, Verdana were - along with Mac specific fonts >_> Somehow I wouldn't mind reading slashy!fic focussed on two (or more) Fonts XD Font!Orgy FTW
[003] JoyofBaking.com has a list of top 40 dessert recipes here (scroll to the bottom) that include Boston Creme Pie, New York Cheesecake and Chocolate Truffles...

[004] Unicreatures is an alternative to all those dragon eggs but I have a feeling it might be no less annoying in the long run >_< Luckily, I just set my Opera browser to ad-block the dragon eggs et all XD So even if my flist gets flooded with them...I'll never know MWHAHAHAHA

[005] Will be marathoning BSG's last season now that I've thoroughly spoiled myself on the ending and know what to expect \o/ Yeah, I guess I'll always be one of the weirdos who LIKES to know if there'll be a rocks-fall-everybody-dies ending or not. SPOILERS = LOVE

[006] It can get very, very tiring to have to keep opening up a new tab and visiting gmail just to search for an old email or to compose a message that needs to be sent ASAP.

I've always found having an email client on your main computer makes things much easier. I use Opera's built in mail system but do check out PostBox, a pretty fab alternative (ala Thunderbird fame). Definitely a good alternative to old Microsoft Outlook.

[007] Update to Internet Explorer 8! Even if you never use the browser, its worth having the latest version anyway.
