Thinking outside the box

The impossible thing happened...

Yesterday I got the brilliant idea to format my laptop and reinstall Windows 7 from scratch.
I've had a few problem last month, mostly due to upgrading the preinstalled Vista to Windows 7.

Said and done, I boldly finished the installation and thought everything was ok. I mean, my email is IMAP so all email are stored at my ISP, all my relevant documents are on another partition on the harddrive and so on...

But..! Now I have noticed I forgot to save my Favorites Links.
So now I need your help. I can try to remember all my favorites (about 80 of them), or I can pledge to you to post interesting SQL-related blogs to me, so I can quickly check them and add them to my Favorites again.


Thank you

//Peter

To prevent this from happening again, my suggestion would be to use http://delicious.com or a similar service.  You will inevitably need to do this again or upgrade hardware or what have you.  With your bookmarks "in the cloud", you needn't worry about it.  As a side bonus, your bookmarks are available wherever you go.  Come on...all the cool kids are doing it. :)

If you were a social bookmark services' user (delicious, google bookmarks, diigo, faviki, stumbleupon, etc.) or a Google Reader user, you would not have faced such situation. :-)

I highly recommend Xmarks (keeps your bookmarks online) works in IE and FireFox.. and you can use it to get your bookmarks onto your ipod/phone too. It's also nice to drop down a bookmark at work then go home and pop it's there.

For IE Favorites, I keep them all in a folder on my external hard drive (with all my other stuff), then set the Favorites path to that location. You can do that by editing the registry directly or using TweakUI (not sure if that's around for Vista/7).
