comment Facebook last login
Hm, that is indeed unfortunate. If you configure the logging as I mentioned in the first part of my post, it will show you previous logins even after the session is terminated; however, it will not show you the IP as you pointed out.

comment Unable to reset Skype password using gmail “plus” address
After contacting Skype, they essentially told me they would be unable to help me because they don't really care. Not very good customer service, but apparently there's nothing I can do about it.

comment Google Talk and Video outside of GMail
To clarify (from what I can remember): Pidgin only supports video/voice chat on Linux currently. They're working on support for Windows, but it's not ready yet. Pidgin isn't available for OS X, although iChat does have video chatting support for contacts also using iChat.

comment Video site with HTML5 embed support?
exactly. And so, if a site has an HTML4 doctype and you try to embed HTML5 video, then it won't work.

I have not yet; I plan to do that tomorrow. I was wondering if anybody had previous experience with this problem though so I could potentially solve it without having to hassle them.

comment Facebook Profile name with Fancy and Stylish Font
I don't know of any easy way to do it... you just have to open up the character map and look for characters that might work.

comment Any free online service which keeps track of all the passwords automatically?
I agree with Alex - you should really consider the security implications of keeping your passwords with an online service. If that one service has a security breach, you've just had a personal security breach for every site you visit.

comment Get Google Maps to print entire map displayed
That's pretty cool. One downside - there doesn't seem to be any way to load saved maps with markers, etc.

comment How can I increase the frequency Gmail checks other accounts?
+1, what I was about to say. One note: it won't let you refresh more than a certain number of times in a given time period. They don't specifically say what those limits are though.

comment Why do some collaborators have edit privs while others do not?
When they say they can't see the edit button, are you sure it's actually not there, or are they just being unobservant? I would double-check the permissions you've set and make sure the collaborators are all set to have full permissions.

comment How can I scrub the entire internet from an accidental content publishing?
@Al Everett: If you change your robots.txt to deny googlebot access to the page in question, it doesn't need to return a 404 for a removal request to be accepted.

comment Is there a way to follow the posts of individual Twitter users in Google Reader?
What about it needs editing?

comment Print Screen to URL
Ah, I see your point. In that case, any of a variety of image upload services would work. It's going to be less convenient with solely a website, because it won't be able to take the screenshot, just do the uploading. After re-reading your question, I'd like to add that for security reasons, websites cannot just read your clipboard without your permission. There may be a solution using flash or silverlight, but not with regular JavaScript and HTML. With HTML5, there may be ways to drag-and-drop an image into the browser window to be uploaded. I'll keep my eyes out for a site like that.
