I'm a developer from Takoma Park, MD.

At the office, I work on MSSQL, C#, VB.NET, Javascript, ASP.NET.

At home, I'm a vegan, a sci-fi fan, dabble in foreign languages and enjoy book clubs.

I will try to up vote everyone who answers me and I thank everyone who has freely given me some of their time to answer my various questions.

comment Sending an HTML email
I don't know but I'd be surprised if OWA lets you use the email editor window as an HTML editing window. I'd guess that it lets you do WSYWIG editing which is either serialized to plain text or serialized to HTML. To do otherwise would put OWA at a huge risk for XSS attacks.

comment List of web applications or web sites for language learning
I completed the Icelandic section. Livemocha's computer based training part is extremely easy and reasonably paced. It is good if you are learning your first word. If you have a semester in a language, it is too easy. The other strength of Livemocha is the chat functions, where you can collaborate with other users (fluent people help you with language X, you help people with English) on translating the exercises.

comment How do I subscribe to pages that don't support RSS?
This looks even more promising than page differences, since it outputs RSS.

sorry, didn't see the other one. It certainly has ended up with duplicate answers.

comment How can I throttle an over talkative person I'm following on Twitter without unfollowing?
@jfoucher and @phwd can you post those as answers so I can vote up and pick one as an answer? Thanks. The Twitter Throttle is spot on, I honestly didn't know about it earlier.

I can publish regrettable content via blogger, twitter, facebook, etc, etc. It isn't necessarily selfhosted.

comment How can I scrub the entire internet from an accidental content publishing?
The part about google not cooperating with individuals doesn't seem accurate. The link that @al everett provided seems to imply that they will remove content on request.

comment I want to receive the tweets of everyone I follow as emails. How do I configure that?
The answer is TweetyMail.com, which has a long list of features for sending email to twitter and receiving information back from twitter as an email.

Yes, I just wish I knew how to program that in a short enough amount of time that there would be a good effort to result ratio.

comment Bit.ly doesn't support OpenId, what URL shortener does?
One less password and Id to remember-- is there something good about having to remember one more password and user id?

comment How do I import an iCal feed to Twitter on an as-it-happens basis?
Meetup.com. I just double checked, the RSS feeds of the calendars are upcoming events. If there was an RSS feed of past events, I would be able to use that. So iCal would still be the most elegant solution, if the translation tool existed.

comment I need a tool to automatically do a Google Translate operation on all tweets in my Twitter feed
I tried. It detects one language per page and twitter wants authorizaton to view the following list, so entering the URL wasn't working. The google chrome addin seems to have the same problem - ie. it can only detect 1 language per page.

comment I'm looking for non-browser application that can work with Craigslist
@Everett What a subtle distinction. So if want to ask a Twitter question involving TweetDeck, it's Super User and if it is via the web pages, it is here? It's unlikely to get followed.
