How To Select File Groups In Windows XP
I know how to move files around on my computer and copy them to/from a disk by dragging and dropping, but it's a pain that I always have to open two windows and line them up side by side to drag and drop from one location to another.

What's an easier way to do all of this?

Maximizing Your Users Website Interaction
Earlier, I explained how our brain finds "Waldo." To briefly recap the post: We have two neural mechanisms for seeing things we might want to pay attention to: a peripheral scanning system that takes in a wide field of vision and a focused (foveal) system that allows us to drill down to details. We have neurons that are specialists in different areas: i.e. picking out colors, shapes and disruptions in patterns. We use these recruited neuronal swat teams to identify something we're looking for in our "mind's eye" (the visual cortex) prior to searching for it in our environment.

Google Adds Ad Blockage Extension To Chrome
Google must know something that we don't. Why else would they be SO open in their new move toward transparency as to allow for extensions on Chrome that, gulp, block the very lifeblood of their money printing operation? Well, considering the market share that Chrome currently has (around 40 million users) and the mindset of someone likely to use (or even know about) this extension the thought of this kind of ‘allowance' is probably bigger than the reality.
