My wife can attest to the fact that there are dozens of web browser tabs open on my PC at any given time. I read interesting things, mean to get back to them, email them, bookmark them, or post them to Facebook or whatever, but I always run out of time to finish all that before I have to get ready for work or spend time with my family or do some kind of chore. And just about always, the computer crashes, grinds to an infuriating near-stop, or does an update reboot before I can get back to them. Like I said earlier, I have an obsession with everything because I really hate not knowing stuff. That's probably not healthy, but at least I'm a good trivia partner. Blame Digg, Reddit, and Fark. So, I've decided to handle this problem in a new way. I'm going to file these Internet wonders here, in a series called "Filed Under." This is Filed Under #1.
