comment What is the meaning of the little colored boxes (badges) on avatars in Trello?
@MichaelPryor: Why would I hover over the little color chips when they're part of a larger icon? I just hover over the icon they're part of, which only tells me the user's name. And when I click that icon looking for an explanation, the color chips go away! And no, most of them don't show any explanation -- gray, nothing; green, nothing. If I happen to hover directly over the tiny purple color chip as my first attempt to answer the "WTF are these?" question, then yes, I would happen to get a very limited answer. But you leave most of my routes of investigation as dead ends.

Will this information get added to the blog or the documentation at some point? It's one of the first things a new user would ask, but there's nothing in the UI that would answer it. Even clicking on the user's avatar doesn't give an explanation -- in fact, the color chips aren't even shown in the resulting pop-up.

comment How can I re-read an RSS feed from the beginning?
Cool -- so Reader can (sometimes) give me an Atom feed of the full history. That answers the harder half of my question. Still doesn't give me a good way to browse through it, though.

comment Good web 2.0 website for quality jokes, riddles and puns that has RSS feed?
That site really needs a wiki feature... the people who post jokes tend not to be able to spell.

Related to UPCs: they do ISBNs too.

comment How can I convert 1930s dollars to today's (cost of living adjustment)?
Out of curiosity, I tried to guess a syntax for converting 1930s dollars to 1975 dollars, but it was an exercise in frustration.

comment Remove specific tag icon from Stackoverflow
I just get irritated at sites that deliberately mislead and lie to their users. SQL Server is not made by RedGate.

Yes, there's an extension called "Chrome Stylist". I tested it, and this tip does work with it. You can get Chrome Stylist here: chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/…

comment Last.fm like recommendations for books?
Does it let you tell you what books you already own, or does it only know what books you bought from Amazon?
