treehugger.jpg has a 'DIGG-like' site up now. I subscribe to the Treehugger RSS feed and enjoy reading the 'green/ environmentally friendly' articles there.

They have (not-officially) released the website. Similar to, the top stories are "hugged" and moved to the front page based on popularity. It's really neat to see this technology applied to news sites like this! (And IMO has a nicer layout! +Hugg!

*EDIT: Also ckeck out Care2 News Network ("It has the digg thing going on, target at not only green, but all progressive causes (human rights, politics, etc). Alas, they lack the 'add to blog' as well.) – Thanks Chris !

(Now if they could only integrate 'add to blog' like Digg, that would ROCK!)

250+ working proxies for safe access from work/school

"Why Should You Use Anonymous Proxy Servers?
Any web resource you access can gather personal information about you through your unique IP address – your ID in the Internet. They can monitor your reading interests, spy upon you and, according to some policies of the Internet resources, deny accessing any information you might need.
You might become a target for many marketers and advertising agencies who, having information about your interests and knowing your IP address as well as your e-mail, will be able to send you regularly their spam and junk e-mails.

A web site can automatically exploit security holes in your system using not-very-complex, ready-made, free hacking programs. Some of such programs may just hang your machine, making you reboot it, but other, more powerful ones, can get access to the content of your hard drive or RAM. Everything a web site may need for that is only your IP address and some information about your operating system.

Using an anonymous proxy server you don't give anybody any chance to find out your IP address and any information about you and use them in their own interests." –

4 Door Wrangler

From Car and Driver – " Based on the redesigned 2007 Wrangler that was revealed at the Detroit auto show, the Unlimited adds two extra doors by stretching the wheelbase 20.6 inches. The extra length has also added some much-needed interior space. Dropping the top of the Wrangler Unlimited isn't as easy as pushing a button, but Jeep's new top — the "Freedom Top" — is a three-piece affair that offers several different configurations, from sunroof to full convertible."

–from DIGG

Q: So does this mean Virtual PC is dead?
A: Nope. VPC is still under development.
Q: You guys are just doing this in response to VMware / Xen / etc… – right?
