Originated by [personal profile] anatsuno:
I'm going to list, and tell you briefly about, ALL THE TABS I HAVE OPEN at this moment in time, without editing (except for work-related or privacy-related reasons, if I had them, but I don't. I just mean, if you do it, obviously, feel free to edit the really crucial stuff - just, it's not in the spirit if the game to edit for guilty pleasure reasons and the like).
From Send Tab URLs (21 links)

I really enjoy Send Tab, the Firefox extension, BTW. It lets me copy this list of tabs and paste it into a mail to myself so I can close them and turn off the computer.

So here's a snapshot of where I was Friday evening, I think, when I encountered this meme and decided to just pass on without dealing with all these:
Boeing’s Multi-Billion Outsourcing Fiasco « naked capitalism

I was meaning to bounce this off [livejournal.com profile] prince_corwin, who has been having trouble with contractors not being able to create a widget where tab A fits into slot B.

West Oakland, Oakland, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Oakland,_Oakland,_California
For my character in Eric T's new Dresden Files campaign... I'm meaning to read all this and figure out where she's lived. Also interested in it for its own sake. And curious who made it.
Washington: the 'blackest name' in America - Yahoo! News
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110221/ap_on_re_us/us_the_blackest_name
More Shavonne research; I'm meaning to add links to her page on the wiki.
Harold Camping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Camping
The source of the "Apocalypse Coming" billboards around the Bay Area, remarked on by Natalie M and Mike S on the ski trip weekend before last; turns out I was wrong and it's not some convention, they really do think it's the apocalyspe. So Mike's right to give them props for avoiding deniability. Mean to mail this to them.
Desperately Seeking Search

Kept this to investigate further into Google alternatives, since as mentioned before, it's sucking this past year.
New Hacking Tools Pose Bigger Threats to Wi-Fi Users - NYTimes.com
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/17/technology/personaltech/17basics.html?_r=1&ref=business
Kept this to investigate stuff I should put on to my computer... Should have asked for a long ethernet cable for my birthday, so I can go back to wired.
Recent Changes - Magic By The Bay
http://magicbythebay.wikidot.com/system:recent-changes
The wiki page for Eric's Dresden Files campaign. Poking away there. Actually somewhat amusing, the wiki, that is; less excruciating than usual. I guess because I went and licked my character's page, repurposing the "collapsible" function to put on a pile of notes. And then there's feedback. So it's sort of like a proper conversation.
Eldridge Cleaver interview
http://leeblockman.tripod.com/blackpantherparty/id5.html
This is pretty fascinating, and I'm halfway through. Cleaver was a rapist and a gobshite, but what he has to say isn't all bullshit, and he does have an interesting perspective on history. This is the last of the Black Panther research tabs I had up; interesting binocular vision you can get on the Black Panthers on the web...

This is just going to piss me off. My parents can testify that I've been wanting a hell of a lot of prison for a hell of a lot of rich fraudsters since 2008.

The AnarchAngel: So you want to buy a 1911? A basic primer
http://anarchangel.blogspot.com/2008/02/so-you-want-to-buy-1911-basic-primer.html
I was back to thinking about getting a handgun, after reading this news story (incredibly sad and gruesome) about how Gina Gonzales survived the attack of Arizona minutemen/racists who killed her family. Shotgun couldn't have managed that, IMO; handgun seems suddenly less impractical. So, thinking I should pick up a gun with cheap ammo so I could actually practice with it; and looking in to how I could have a light trigger since in my small experience with guns I find it irritating when they pull Windows-like "are you sure you want to fire? how about if you have to pull the trigger back to your teeth, since we can't make you click a button that says 'yes'"... And then I stopped opening new tabs when I found a blog of a gun guy who wasn't completely crazy, because I find reading opinionated people to be the best way to learn. (Too many gun people are too goddamn crazy. Assholes. That's a big downside of the whole range thing.)

Was thinking about picking this up for the Apocalypse World bit;
roleplayers: What Makes A Good Game Official?
http://community.livejournal.com/roleplayers/1587269.html
Was thinking about responding. 1. People skills: can notice when anyone in room is getting frustrated/bored 2. Time management/fairness (then maybe 3. 10-15% "can make super plot/interesting NPCs/good scene setting") But meh, it's been too long since the question was posed.

Was thinking about picking this up... There were a couple interesting things, at least. Looks like Tales of the Floating Vagabond? Looks like it's gone in 9 hours, too, so I'm glad I came to this meme tonight...
