Geocaching - "is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment." At the Geocaching website, click on "Getting Started" to find out more!

Tired of hearing, "Please listen, as our menu options have changed"?  Try the "Get Human" website, and learn to foil those endless recordings!

Looking for a place to recycle your old computer and other electronic products?  The EPA website has information about this.

From the New York Times (Wednesday, November 14, 2007) comes an article with links to hints for many "fixes" :  "Some sites like macfixit.com, fixmyxp.com and macosxhints.com are devoted to a single product, while others like avsforum.com sponsor debates on a big product area, in this case home theaters, televisions and stereos. People with laptops that have suddenly gone blank can turn to www.notebookforums.com or notebookreview.com, and there are even a few sites like www.highdefforum.com for fixing TVs." Other suggestions include CrunchGear.com  and fixya.com for everything from fixing iPods to finding product manuals and more.

For "Office-type" applications such as creating spreadsheets, documents and editing photos, try Google Docs, or Zoho.
