The letters IHS were the first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus IHSOYS, which stood for Yahweh.

Just a nitpick (and I know you're quoting another site): The Greek name of Jesus is IHSOYS in Greek letters, or Iesous transliterated into English letters. It doesn't stand for Yahweh, God's name used in the Old Testament. It just says Jesus.

Awesome comment though.

There are a few hosted solutions like that as well. I'm using Blogtrottr now. Seems good and reliable. Feed My Inbox ran well for a few years, but shut down at the beginning of the year.

Email works great. We already have mature clients for reading them. And it doesn't become a separate inbox/site/client I need to check.

When we were trying to plan our wedding from two different countries, collaborative documents were extremely useful. We could both add things, review what the other was doing, and keep everything in a single place. It kept everything simple and easy.

While not everyone needs collaborative editing, it is extremely useful in some situations.

The big speed difference I notice between Opera and some other browsers isn't so much in the HTML/JS performance but in overall responsiveness. Opening a tab is nearly instantaneous, even on older systems. The browser just gets out of the way and lets me work. That speed difference won't be shown in most benchmarks.

The current version is still 9.64, with 9.7 in beta testing, so it will be some time before 10 comes out.

I don't believe there is a 9.7 beta. The Opera 10 beta was released recently, and this builds upon it. They are definitely working towards a v10 release in the relatively near future.

... said Windows user Joe Beleaguered, who had lost all his email, business files, MP3s and porn again.

Offhandedly, I've had iTunes remove songs and complete albums on several occasions, actually deleting the files. This has occured under both OS X and WinXP. And an iTunes "upgrade" recently deleted my entire library (again, deleting the files, not just removing their entries in iTunes). Quite a pain in the buttocks.

I much prefer working on a Mac, but I wouldn't trust iTunes with anything of value. It's the only program I've ever had which has done things like this. Windows is annoying, but usually not actively destructive.

Hurray for backups.
