    i'm about to wipe my system hard drive clean due to some unfixable files that are causing problems w/my system. is there a way to somehow save all of my internet bookmarks? i also want to save all of my post-it note "stickies" that i have on my dashboard. can that be done as well? i can think of some ways to do both, but i wanted to see if any one here had any "easy" ways to do this. thanks

    In Safari click the File menu then export bookmarks. Move that file to the new computer and import the bookmarks.

    Correct, Then it synchronizes them across all of your computers. It works great, especially if you work across multiple machines.

    Not sure what OS version you are using, but I just use iCloud for that. (used MobileMe before iCloud was released)
