    Or write a program to figure out the question to 42.
    I believe that's been done. I take it to be a literary reference.

    How about writing a text editor in bash?

    Or a front end (UI) for my incredibly fast Game-of-Life engine.
    Or an implementation of my fabulous probablistic chess engine (This one definitely hasn't been done before).

    I have a thousand other great ideas for programs, mostly lurking in the dark recesses of my mind, although some have escaped and started to flourish on the backs of old envelopes. I don't know if I'm blessed or cursed.

    You can already do that in a thousand programs - mine was actually something I don't know of another solution for.

    If I ever get a windows version of mine working, you'll be the first person to know.

    This is something I want to do when I have some free time. I don't know about you guys but whenever I found a good website, I copy & past the address in a text file (sometimes with a line of comment). But then the list gets so big that later I can't remember why I saved a particular web address or many times I just can't find the one I am looking for. So, I was thinking of creating a nice gui that will put the web addresses in different categories with some comments so that I can easily find the one I look for. I was also thinking about adding a shortcut that will take the web address directly from the explorer address bar, bring up my application automatically and put the address there in a predefined location so that I just enter some comments about the site and save it.

    Perhaps you can do it for me !

    Well I might me wrong but won't having too much bookmarks slowdown my computer? Even if doesn't slow down the machine, I think it still will be difficult to find the one I need from a big list. I am talking about a minimum of say 50 or more web addresses.

    The idea I mentioned above is something I think will be helpful for my (or anyone else's I guess ) personal use. Also (I think) it will be easier to distribute the important addresses among friends.

    But hey,...ITS JUST AN IDEA !

    I'm pretty sure bookmarks aren't going to slow down your computer unless you have a ton of them (not 50). As for organization, just label them well, and it should be no problem. I have a lot of bookmarks at home, and have no problem navigating them.

    No offence, but that's the weirdest thing I've read in a while.
    A GUI to manage bookmarks in categories? Please use the built-in functionality in your web browser.

    bookmarks.htm already contains all your bookmarks. If you're using IE, press File->Import and export->Bookmarks.
