comment How can I select all unread messages on the new version of Yahoo Mail?
Will "select all" select all the ones currently visible, or all the ones that are unread?

@panhandel: Aha /quit seems to disconnect only from the current server, but doesn't close its tab/icon.

I guess it's easier when you already know your friend's username (-:

Netvibes just stalls at the "Dashboard build in progress ... Initialize theme" screen when I try to add my first feed under the "Go basic" option.

comment Is there a free webapp or webservice for creating / hosting custom RSS feeds?
In fact I knew about this tool but didn't know it could make feeds. I did get a feed working but the tool is so hard to learn that my feed currently has just a single word in it! I couldn't work out how to add other important fields like the link. If anyone's interested I made a feed for the latest version of jQuery: Pipes page, RSS feed

Hi close-voters. On the other SE sites I'm active on it's encouraged to leave some constructive criticism when voting down or to close. If it's also encouraged here I'm interested in learning how to use the site better but currently can't see a fault in my question.

comment Does anyone know of a free concordance webapp that does text analysis of large bodies of texts?
Also Google cannot be used programmatically! The API has been withdrawn and screen-scraping is against their terms.

Where can I set it as the base version? I thought I'd seen it in the past but now can't find it.

Yes I just found batchgeo independently - seems perfect with my initial tests. I'll check out your other tip too.

comment Upgrade gist to full GitHub project without commandline or IDE
Well that's really too bad. I wouldn't consider it promotion then after all, especially since they all just use git repos behind the scenes. But at least now we have an answer so thanks for that! Perhaps the best way to address this in the future would be the ability to fork a gist to a full github project?

comment Upgrade gist to full GitHub project without commandline or IDE
Hmm that's too bad, but with the commandline it would preserve the history, do I understand correctly?

comment Upgrade gist to full GitHub project without commandline or IDE
Hmm would such a "copy paste promotion" leave a continuous repo or fork or would it just start a new one that internally knew nothing of its origins?

comment Is there a free webapp/service to plot data with a nonlinear X axis?
Wolfram Alpha has just launched a "Pro" variant which allows uploading and inputting data, including in CSV format. But so far I haven't been able to get it to plot the data in my CVS file. (I ended up writing a JavaScript tool to plot the data using Google Charts' "Annotated Timeline".)

comment Is there a map service which overlays Google Maps and Openstreetmaps?
Yes I tried that now too but for some reason only the Google Map showed up and the OSM seemed totally blank no matter what I did \-:

I can't seem to find any maps there of Tbilisi or Georgia. Maybe I was doing it wrong though... \-:

comment Is there a map service which overlays Google Maps and Openstreetmaps?
Ideally with transparency/translucency, which is what I thought I found once, but toggling rapidly between both aligned perfectly in the exact same spot at the exact same scale would be a close second best!

IBM's Many Eyes looks like a good contender but I can't figure out how to get the x-axis to work with dates or timestamps.

Is it normal to downvote and closevote on this Stack Exchange without giving reasons? On most sites it's considered polite to leave constructive comments along with such actions.

comment How can I force Google Maps to update “My location” when I move?
Where in the left panel? Do you mean the "My location" circle/dot above the street view man? As discussed that doesn't work most of the time.
