My main general search tool has always been Yahoo...Delicious was a fun alternative. Looking at popular bookmarks, I found one on digital music trends, and it mentioned sites where you can mix popular music recordings, and add tracks. I've used the freely available recording/mixing program Audacity, which is good for personal leisurely recording, but editing a U2 song would be enjoyable, too.

When I looked at the recent bookmarks, I found Heroes Wiki. My sister loves the show, and has encouraged me to watch it, but I haven't. I clicked on "new user portal." Here's a quote from the first episode:

"Where does it come from—this quest, this need to solve life's mysteries when the simplest of questions can never be answered? Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we'd be better off not looking at all. Not delving, not yearning. But that's not human nature. Not the human heart. That is not why we are here."

I'm interested in seeing the show now.


I searched for my Blogger handle using Yahoo and Google. Here's what came up:

Rollyo and Library Thing

I'm in the middle of making a 27 things comeback, after some time off that ended yesterday.

Rollyo was fun. I made a tennis search that searched a few different sports sites for information on Marcos Baghdatis, an animated pro tennis player from Cyprus. Speaking of tennis, I have an old LibraryThing account called Grosjean (named after the player Sebastian Grosjean) that I started a couple years ago:

When I was in library school, I cataloged the books I had to read for a young adult lit class, and it was neat to see all the members on LibraryThing who had the same books; they must have taken the same class.

I threw my last blog post into Wordle, and it came out like this:

Wordle: CellPhoneGraffiti

Putting the code from the Wordle site directly into the Blogger composer and having the image pop up was pretty cool. (I tried clicking "Edit Html" at first, and copying the code into there, but it didn't like that.)
