comment How can I import my Google Reader shared items into Facebook?
Unfortunately, it appears that this feature has since been removed.

comment Is there another way to mark a recommended item as “Not Interested” in Google Reader?
I guess typically it should be that way. :) Please feel free to add the info from my comment into your answer! (Of course, with the usual attribution.)

Great idea! That put me onto the idea of, instead, hitting n to scroll to the next item without opening it (the bottom bar will be available). Thanks!

Added a comment that I use Firefox, to clarify.

@Eight: Thank you anyway!

@Eight: Tried it on another computer and it did the same thing; are you using the script in Greasemonkey on Firefox?

That sounds perfect. It doesn't mark the X for "Not Interested", though; that makes me wonder if it is having the intended effect. Also, Firefox's web console logs a message like Network: POST https://www.google.com/reader/api/0/edit-tag?client=scroll [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 547ms] only when I use the "Not Interested" link, not when I use the Shift + L keyboard shortcut. How can I be sure it really works?

comment Getting ALL the tweets ever tweeted by the world
As far as I know, the Library of Congress isn't even archiving protected tweets (i.e., those from users with a non-public twitter feed). I doubt Twitter will open those up to you.

comment Is it safe to use Gravatar?
would it be good enough to use a Gmail plus alias (adding + and whatever word you want, just before the @ sign), then?

comment How do I tell Google Reader to mark the currently-shown page as read if I know it's in one of my subscribed feeds?
thanks. That makes a lot more sense.

Hmm...good idea. Not sure setting up a unique e-mail address would work for me, though.

You're right that the Next » bookmarklet doesn't mark the current page read. However, I don't see why the content being delivered through RSS feeds would prevent that from working. The RSS feeds carry information about the source URL, otherwise clicking the RSS item's title wouldn't be able to take you to the web page.

comment Where can I find recent snowfall totals for a city?
I'd certainly be happy to know if there was a site that had this data displayed in a nicer format, so please answer if you know of one.

@edelwater, I found it on the NOAA site today. I don't remember what term I searched the Internet using, and it wasn't linked from the link you gave me, but you were right that the NOAA would have it if anyone did. See my answer below.

The WolframAlpha results are quite nice, but my results say "(estimated with water equivalent of snow)", and clicking "More" for more detail doesn't present the snowfall total. Thanks, though!

@edelwater, that's a good point, but I'm still convinced it's out there; my local news often has that sort of info on TV broadcasts, but they don't post it on their website.

@edelwater The NOAA page had snowfall forecasts, which aren't what I'm looking for. I tried the "Recent Snowfall and Snow Depth Maps" link, and it was really close to what I wanted, but its scope was limited enough that I couldn't find any measurements near my city. Thank you, though!

@edelwater, the Star Wars weather example is humorous, but I don't see any snowfall totals on that site. Thanks!
