  • DVDpedia – Do you know where your DVDs are? – I wonder if this application works with Netflix? Viewing is nearly the same as owning (I rarely watch a film twice)
  • TidBITS Home Macs: Wine with Bento – "Setting up a database manager requires a great deal of expertise and planning but setting up a list manager does not. All you need do is figure out how you want to be able to sort your list – by whether a wine is red or white, by price, etc. – and set out this information in separate fields. The remaining information you can divide into whatever chunks you find convenient."
  • Tankboy – Jumping on the Mosaic Bandwagon – Note to self: do this! Even though some of the questions are rhetorical, or worse, unanswerable, answer them anyway.

  • ENDPAPER: HOW TO; Solve The New York Times Crossword Puzzle – New York Times – "Mental flexibility is a great asset in solving crosswords. Let your mind wander. The clue ''Present time'' might suggest nowadays, but in a different sense it might lead to the answer yuletide. Similarly, ''Life sentences'' could be obit, ''Inside shot'' is x-ray and my all-time favorite clue, ''It turns into a different story'' (15 letters), results in the phrase SPIRAL STAIRCASE."

    I wish I had enough not-already scheduled leisure time to work on the crossword every day.
