I wonder if there's some sort of thing where you plug in your DW name, it goes through your list of mutuals, and it suggests users based on overlapping similarities.

Like, I'm a mutual with dw_sample_bot and dw_bot_sample. I'm not connected to dw_butts_lol, but both dw_sample_bot and dw_bot_sample are, so the service says "two of your mutuals follow dw_butts_lol... maybe check them out?". Where "mutuals" I mean "access", though there could be a separate column for reading-mutuals as well.

It's a thought.

What I want right now:

* a smallish desk
* a power cord that lives at that desk, explicitly
* same for a pair of speakers
* a comfy chair
* a beer

Wait, there's beer already.

...dammit, I accidentally clicked on a dollhouse miniature thing again.

* kitchen
* kitchen
* computer + desk/chair
* weights!
* futon
* shower stall

Randomness.

* I've ordered two miniature smoke alarms, so that I can hack at least one of them apart and make it better.  I just need a teensy battery and a teensy LED or similar, and I will be happeh.  Also maybe a spring or something.  Not sure yet.

* I really really want an alternative to phpMyAdmin.  I like GUI; I like web-based; I am disenchanted with the clunkiness of it all.  For example, why on earth do I get a new window when I click Edit next to SQL?  Are we not in the AJAXy future?

* I now have two projects pages -- one for work, and one for myself.  For the latter, between that wiki page and my "projects" tag here, I should be good for always-available mental distractions.

* I kind of want an email-capable phone.

* I also kind of want a way to script scanning things in on this HP Scanjet flatbed scanner.

This is another case of "I want this to exist already!".  So if someone actually knows of a website that is like yelp.com or gasbuddy.com, that's just for showing delivery menus (and hours, and misc. other information), that is all about user content, feel free to point me at it.  Because I want it to exist.  I don't particularly want to make a Web 2.0 social-app thing.

I just want something where I can see:

* All $type companies in a $dist-mile radius of whatever I type in.
* The delivery hours.
* The menus, or the menu information, whatever's happier.
* The date when this was last confirmed or updated or whatever.
* Any associated fees.
* Cashshshsh, or charge?  (Massive reference points for that one.)
* THE END.

So like grubhub.com, only user-updated.  I don't want to do all the work of contacting a bunch of restaurants.  I don't know how they do it.  (As in, literally: I am not aware of the method by which they acquire this information.)

With yelpishness, in that changes to information are moderated.

Mmph.

I used to know about a Firefox extension that allowed me to hit Ctrl-Shift-Z, and it would lighten the scheme of whatever page I was on.  I want this back, because while the feminist blogs I read mostly do not do light text on black backgrounds, a whole lot of blogs that they link to do, and it's bugging the hell out of me.

Howe'er, I cannot bloody find it.

Would you know of either that addon, or something similar that doesn't involve installing a Stylish script for each and every dark-themed website I go to?

I am ISO a thing.

I manage the documentation we send out to customers.  (Like system configuration, or reports.)  They are in Word documents, separated by topic.

I want something that will store this documentation in one place, where I can export the pages to Word documents.  I'm wanting this because sometimes I want to change the style a bit to be more thorough, and god help me I hate opening each and every document to make sure it's consistent.

Not to mention, I still and will always miss Reveal Changes in WordPerfect.  I am so picky it hurts, and the idea of some style not being right grates on me.

I'll go look for a smallish wiki, or perhaps investigate MediaWiki's exporting capabilities (native, plugins), but I figured I'd ask.

Dear the world:

I want, right now, a Javascript spreadsheet-esque thing.

Features:

- First use asks for row/column values.
- Gives me a space to enter data.  So, not just a table generator, but a table plus content generator.
- Add/delete rows/cols as necessary.
- Export HTML.
- Open source, adurr.

Nice to have:

- Cell alignment.
- Back/fore colouring.

And nothing else.  I don't need an Excel clone, I'm just looking for something to do tables quickly for me.

Thankscerely,

-X

I just want a computer that runs as fast as I think, and Perl on Windows so that getting the same kind of data from two different files from ten different folders from two different servers wouldn't involve me stabbing an icepick into my temple.

Mostly, the main differences I want in a checkbook register thing:

1) I want to be able to enter future transactions, and have the balance be updated accordingly.

2) I want a reconciliation view that omits future transactions, obviously.

3) When I enter a new transaction where the item name is 'paycheck', I want it to pull up a list of recurring transactions that I can choose from.  So my mid-month paycheck has things like meds, phone bill, and loan repayment, and my end-month paycheck has things like bus pass, rent, and Pandora.  So.

Sooomething like recurring billpay things, only it gives me the option to plug in the next two weeks' worth of things when I enter in a paycheck item.

And online, obvs, because I need to be able to access it from anywhere.  Also open source, for tinkering.

Hm.

- I got to be in my land again!  I mapped out why I could never get anywhere from this one direction (it was walled off, apparently - nobody tells me anything), and I got to go shopping a bit.  The store looks a bit different every time I go.  I can't recall off-hand what it was I bought.

- This-all is because I took valerian, I figure.  I'm slowly starting to consider it to be a gateway drug - that being, a drug that takes me through that gateway, waha.  It also only lets me sleep for about six hours before it wakes me right the fuck up.  I slept more, and now I am beyond tired.

- I think I'm going to donate a bunch of my one-skein-at-best balls of yarn to this local thrift store (that specifically asks for yarn).  It's not useful for much else, to be honest, but I don't want to throw it away...  Or I'll post it to Freecycle or something, who knows.

- I want to stay in this process of processing yarn.  Right now, I have one bunch ready to be washed, one ready to be skeinified, and a box that is slowly filling up with yarn.  Tonight, I'll bust out a grocery bag for the <1ball balls of yarn.  I am dedicated to an empty closet.

- I covet this swiftCovet.  That and a C-clamp.  COVET.

- Once I ever get a laptop that functions as a laptop, I'm idly contemplating turning this TV set I have (don't ask) into a just-a-movie-player thing, using my current busted-ass laptop and... whatever cables are involved.

- This Sunday, I'll be getting an actual bed!  With like a frame and everything!  More impetus to clean my room tomorrow.  It's otherwise fine, just cluttered with yarn, and I want to sweep a bit.  And then I'm getting more sweaters!  All this from [livejournal.com profile] trista, who (a) is awesome and (b) will be moving to town soon omg omg yay.

I want a laptop that has sufficient memory, a lot of hard drive space, a DVD-ROM drive, a networking card, an OS*, and a distinct lack of thunderweevils.  Sound is required but top-notch is not - I listen to rock music loudly, using headphones, so it's not like I'm aiming for quality.  And I suppose the DVD drive wouldn't be required, I would just like it a great deal.

* I am most familiar with Windows, but am at least moderately fluent in the three major user OSes, and can get software I want for each of them.

Decent-sized screen, all of the keys present and functional, USB ports, trackpad for the mouse I suppose*, not actively on fire, and if Windows then not less than Win2k.

* The only thing my current trackpad does is move the pointer.  There is no clicking or dragging, because I am clumsy enough without assistance.

I am going to find pawn shops and check Freegeek and look for refurbished laptops.  I can do nothing now, but I am shoppinating.  Once I get a proper laptop, if it has oodles of hard drive space yay (I currently only use about 80 gigs total, not including OS space, across two machines, so 100 gigs should suffice as a minimum), I can donate all other hardware to Freegeek, and then be free.

...and then get a Ubuntu desktop from Freegeek, because why not.  I like Ubuntu, and you shut up.

Do I want to clean, or do I want to want?

I want:

* a phone that does all of what I want:
  - phone
  - contacts/tasks/calendar
  - syncing w/ desktop
  - camera
  - split keyboard
  - other things I can't describe but I'll know when I argue against them
  - weightlifting logging software stuff

* a list of all Charles de Lint characters
  - a breakdown of the sexual orientations of them
  - perhaps also their relationship pairings, if any

* a good list of stuff one would want on a Palm Pilot

* dancing software that already exists
  - arr paper and sketching and could I do this using Javascript and will I have to learn Flash oh god?
  - accept that one must at least choose standards
    - basic basic moves, and then combine, as macros?
      - arr positioning and twirling and tempo matters

* moar smoochins

* a good glass of wine

* to know why it smells like Raid over here, wtf

* basic basic German language teachy lessons in .pdf format

* a good pattern for what to do with ribbon yarn that's not atrocious
  - scarf? belt? bag? monkey? butter? turnips??

On the other hand, I need to shower, do laundry, and clean up all the yarn I have.

Hmm.
