Homenet

It seems that a lot of computer projects/services get called Homenet - at OSU, it was the dialup service (ResNet being the ethernet in the dorms).

I'm slowly starting to use Firefox3's new features like search keywords (paired with the Add-To-Search-Bar extension, it's awesome - after some light set-up I can say "pirate artistname" in the urlbar and get piratebay's search results, and likewise, I can say "how_to_reach someplace" and have google maps give me bus directions there. I'm still getting started on using bookmark keywords. For how awesome this functionality is, it's not even close to intuitive enough.
