I built a web app that does pretty much exactly what you're asking for: http://sqlfiddle.com My intent was to make it easier for people to setup environments that demonstrate the SQL problem they are attempting to solve, then post the link to StackOverflow (or something similar) and have people go there and attempt to solve it, much the same as jsfiddle....

Feedly syncs directly to Google Reader for now, and will migrate your feeds off google reader when the time comes. They have a post simplifying the transition from Google Reader to feedly. Feedly runs in the browser and on various mobile devices. It supports categories for feeds like Google Reader. It supports j and k keyboard shortcuts for navigating ...

Both Lifehacker and CNET have been quick to dump out some options for alternatives. I think in terms of reading on the web and on mobiles (all the below have Android and iOS apps) the best options are: Feedly - Probably the most popular alternative, syncs directly to Google Reader for now. Main downside is that using it on the web requires installing a ...

If you don't mind self-hosting it, or finding someone who will, Tiny Tiny RSS is a Free Software web application with a similar look and feel of GReader. It comes with a mobile web UI and there are 3rd party native apps that interface with it.

I just found Old Reader which purports to be "like Google Reader was back when it was good". It can import OPML files from Google Reader, has the same keyboard shortcuts, and seems to work pretty similarly. I'm about to try it out, and will post back once I get some impressions of it.

The following utility (created by me) may come in handy for such scenarios : http://plaintexttools.github.io/plain-text-table/ Usage is fairly simple and intuitive, thanks to the spreadsheet like editing capabilities of handsontable . Also it handles multi-line cells neatly.

While not especially for tables, Asciiflow is a generic tool for this kind of thing.

If you own the website then Google Analytics is the way to go. If you don't own the website then it'll be a lot trickier. You can use something like Alexa ranks to track traffic generically, but that won't tell you anything about specific traffic. Or if you'd rather track the traffic you are sending to that page from your link I'd suggest linking to the ...

The short answer is, Yes the full list is gone. With the upcoming release of Windows 8 it seems Microsoft are shifting their focus on writing Apps (or gadgets) for Windows 8 rather than Windows 7. I did find this article which lists a few more gadgets for Windows 7 that are still about elsewhere on the internet. Incidently, a quick look at that Microsoft ...

Using http://www.watchthatpage.com create a channel, add the URL(s) of the page(s) to monitor and then enable keyword matching via Edit Properties.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Calibre - an ebook management tool. It also has capabilities for downloading RSS feeds and converting them into epubs or another format of your choice. Calibre is available on android but I don't think is available on iOS. However, there are ways to get around it. Calibre can be left running as a background process ...

This is exactly what the original poster wanted and also what I wanted. I wanted to share this awesome tool for anyone else: http://snag.gy. You just ctrl+v after you print screen and it's there. There are also some editing tools (crop, drawing) if necessary.

Facebook doesn't allow updating a post content. So no app can help you with that. And only way to stick a post on your timeline is to make it featured. But as the post object cannot be updated, you just have to post it and feature it everytime your flair is updated. And also you have to post images of your flair as Facebook doesn't allow parsing HTML content ...

Another open source self-hosted alternative would be selfoss by Tobias Zeising. I've just set it up and it works well for my few feeds. With the end of Google Reader, activity seems to have shot up and you can import your feeds from Google Reader.

Since the OP specifically says: It doesn't have to use ASCII (it can be Unicode) I thought I'd share the link for the (mysql / unicode / html) table generator created by a SE user for use on SE I found on superuser. I found it quite useful to get unicode tables (which I sometimes prefer over the Windows-1252 compatible "ASCII" art). And this tool lets ...

You can do most of that on goodreads. Check out their How It Works page to see how to sign up, add your books, get recommendations, etc.

As linked in the comments above, you can sometimes download from the developer's site, however, I found this is rarely the case. Personally, I'm a heavy user of I Forgot The Milk and the Google Calendar gadgets, and luckily you can still find both hosted on the developer's site.

SQL Fiddle it's a great website you can write your sql queries to testing them and share it with others.

BazQux is very good for me: http://bazqux.com/ It also have nice feeds import from Google Reader

After Google Reader turned out the lights, I experimented with a long string or RSS readers and aggregation systems. I eventually settled on Feedly and tried to camp out there. While the interface is polished and it does most things well, after a couple weeks I was frustrated with how little customization could be done. Adding feeds from mobile was also a ...

PDF to Word can do this for you. I have used it myself previously.

snag.gy Snaggy does exactly that, is very easy to use and has a simple editor to crop and annotate the image. On modern browsers, it can paste the image directly from clipboard using HTML5, no plugins are required. On older browsers, a Java plugin is still needed. (FAQ)

Disclosure: I work at Ragic You can try to build one yourself with Ragic. Just create data forms like you would on Excel or other types of spreadsheets, and it becomes an online database for you to enter and search for records.

While I think this question is out of the scope of Webapps, the tool sounded interesting so I did some research. Is "Let them sing it for you" the tool you're looking for? Looks like the original creator has stopped hosting the project: For unknown reasons the Swedish National Radio decided not to host the project anymore in late 2011. Hopefully it ...

I'm experimenting with Pulse and am so far moderately impressed: The UI is a thing of beauty, but the user experience is quite different from Google Reader and importing your Reader feeds with the web version of the app is not possible. They claim to have a very simple import function to grab your Reader feeds in the mobile version though, which I haven't ...

The thread you refer to is 76 months old as of today (3/19/2014), dating that post to 2007. It seems that the text stats feature was removed at some time during 2012. Curiously, Amazon's help page still mentions the text stats feature. Hovering over the cover of *some** books with the "Look Inside" feature enabled will bring up a popup that offers some ...

Maybe you can just use a Google Spreadsheet to do that? Or if you need something more database beyond a simple spreadsheet, you can try Ragic Builder. It has pretty good search and analytical database features.

I wanted something which could capture screenshots of a local server, so a web service like Browsershots wasn't what I wanted. Therefore, using html2canvas I've made a bookmarklet which captures a screenshot locally, rendering elements with a canvas. To use it, copy this as a bookmarklet: (function(d,w,h,s,i){w[h]||(s=d.createElement('script'),s.src='//...

If you more a visual person you can use a sticky note whiteboard like yommoo.com
