    How to eliminate application completely?

    Good to hear Firas! I've personally really appreciated appzappers' wizard menu, which it scans your entire hard drive and lists system pref panes, apps and more that have been installed... pretty neat! I'll still need to check out clean app, although I think I'm going to stick with appzapper!

    something similar to CCleaner for Mac?

    Oh yeah. Definitely recommend this, used to use it all the time till 10.4.9 came out and it wasn't supported... just noticed they've updated to support 10.4.9 now, off to blog about it now. Thx Clark

    Anyone tried google desktop

    Quicksilver is good yes, I'll make allowances for it replacing spotlight, and I'm a google fan so naturally I'd go after any new products they have... However, personally, neither of these two apps beat spotlight. I just don't get it! Why do ppl keep making new search utilities for the mac? We should've been done with quicksilver! Spotlight is perfect for most of us, even power-users, and quicksilver is alternative for real, real hungry power users, or productivity gurus like Merlin Mann. *respect* </rant>

    Visual HTML Editor

    Take the time to learn html, it's your best investment here, and its really not that difficult. Html has got to be the next easiest language out there, css is even easier. TextMate is a wonderful app for this, after you learn html, xhtml 1.0 and css, you can start with php Otherwise if visual editing is really that important, get dreamweaver, which will allow for future expansion and flexibility. Don't forget that even Dreamweaver's wysiwyg editor drools out some terrible, terrible code, try and keep it w3c compliant. good luck!

    CSS/HTML Coder Wanted

    Hey, try not to use caps for html tags as its not xhtml 1.0 w3c compliant. <a></a> therefore define the css as a:link And if you want to change the link style for content in a specific div or zone (with an id for eg. of 'mydiv' ) #mydiv a:link { } gl!

    When will you buy leapord?

    I'll buy Leapord on day ONE! lol but tbh, Tiger doesn't crash, works perfectly, has everything I need... Apple almost gave its users no reason to bother upgrading, but i think they'll have some aces up sleeves.

    Spoof/fake IP

    I think you mean a proxy server, the free ones are generally dead slow, but you could opt to pay for a service. Also if you're ISP assigns you dynamic IP's (most do), then just turn your router off, wait 5 minutes and turn it back on again to change IP.
