One of my favorite things to do is “folder bookmark”. You bookmark *all* the open tabs at once into a single folder in the bookmarks thing. I do that, set today’s date on it (calling it something like 20170722 ] and then close them all. Then I’m right where I left off again when I open up the whole bookmark folder. It’s nice. Good choice with Opera. I use Waterfox over Chrome for similar reasons, although it’s tempting to go back to Opera as that was always a favorite of mine.

On some computers / devices, Opera was the *only* browser that worked. Had an ancient cell phone with some archaic even for then J2ME and Opera was all I could get on it but it was really nice to see something computer-ish with bookmarks and things on an otherwise “THIS IS ONLY A PHONE” phone.

The computer is there to serve. I don’t want it to die but I always push it to its limits. If it was conscious? I might have misgivings but, it’s not yet as far as I know.

it worked great on the Blackberry [I went through a couple of them Loved the thumbboards on them. Hard to believe how easy it was to migrate to touch though. I was sure I wouldn’t make the switch but it was easy]

===

My first touch screen was the Handspring Visor :P but for phones it was the iPhone 4s, after my previous blackberry went into the washing machine – and the “rice trick” works for EVERYTHING… except the “OK” button….

===

and everybody who has issues with this: figure out the keyboard combo to save all open tabs to a bookmark folder in your favorite browser. Really helps with organization because you just open it up again and you are right where you left off on that date.

Awesome :) Try it, see if you like it. I love it. I need to do a backup of my bookmarks again – I do it every few months… Each browser is a little different and I didn’t ant to get into browser dick length wars :) [sometimes merely mentioning the name of a browser and people go off :P ]

it’s ok. you’re a fan. I sound like a ad whenever I recommend something.. I’ve had dinner conversations that sounded like poorly made TV ads for products. “Oh is this that new salad dressing? Oh yea I like the boldness of the flavor You can really taste the citru….

^ here’s one of mine [just scrolled to random section]. It’s super useful to save bookmarks in folders. On this browser they go back to early 2013 which is great for “what was that thing I was working on a while back?]

I love bookmarking all open tabs. I think its because our memory is sometimes associative to environment in that it links together whatever happened to be around at the same time. So if I was looking up a movie the same day I was reading up on holonomic memory but I couldn’t remember what type of memory I was looking up but I *do* remember the name of the movie, I can use one to find the other.

====

anything that externalizes my memory I’m grateful for. I’ve got piles of thousands of index cards, 3×5 notebooks with notes, bookmarks saved, websites with writings on it… cassette tapes, videos, all externalizations of memory. The only thing they all have in common is they can be mapped out in a tempospatial database. Beyond that any connections get more complicated.

spatio temporal….. ugh i flipped them.. did a Spoonerism.

I consider it a proud moment that I could give you something useful that you didn’t know of

Oo – Windows-d. Another one I didn’t know. I always click “Show desktop”. Yup, I’ll be making heavy use of that. [I ususally miimize to save memory but at one time it was to hide what I was looking at]

====

ah that one i knew but don’t use. I pick up my computer and move it with me if I’m going to leave it more than a minute. Having some little kids running around (3+5 yrs old nephew and niece) I don’t trust ‘em.
