    I don't use safari- firefox is the way to go.

    And yet another great thread.

    I'll give it a bit... this one (assuming there's an explanation with each one) might actually be interesting.

    1.way to make external drive show up on desktop automatically - I want my vista machine to work like my mac does..till I get my mac back anyway.

    2.XPS Viewer - because I printed a receipt to that format in Vista only to find out Vista doesn't actually have a built in XPS file viewer. Seriously...

    3. using hotlinks in mysql - was dabbling with databases and php after doing an assignment on it.

    4.table tags in php - same as above

    5. sony k750 drivers - needed to get a picture off my phone and therefore needed vista drivers for it.

    This thread should be interesting...

    I can't remember how to get previous searches in firefox, so I can't post mine right now.

    I don't often use Safari so I only have four. They are:-

    Logic Express 7 Librarian
    OSX Synth Librarian Software
    Perian
    Imagine FM

    The top three should be self-explanatory. Imagine FM is the local radio station for Stockport.

    • sopranos episode guide (to settle a dispute over which episode we may have missed, it turned out to be the funfair one)

    • tube map (self-explanatory)

    • dominos uk (also self-explanatory)

    • Three Colors Trilogy (just to double-check running order; Blue seems so appropriate at the mo)

    • google news search: Quark (just to hear what they're up to)

    What's a Goofle Search? ;)

    My last five are:

    pasta express - saw it in Linens 'n Things, wondered if it was any good (apparently it's not)
    cedar wood filler - err... making a deck railing, trying to fix a boo-boo
    cedar screw plugs - ditto
    ripping 2x4 table saw - need to do that for this deck railing, trying to get tips
    level plumb - again, building deck railing, was confirming my vocabulary was correct (i.e. that "plumb" meant what I thought it did.. "level" is there just to give it context)

    Is there some way to have Google spew up my history of searches automagically? :confused:
