My laptop has become a bit unstable these days. I'm thankful to have a new one on the way. But in the meanwhile, I must put up with random lockups and reboots.
Because of the way I roam all over the Internet when I'm looking for information, I actually had nineteen open IE windows and four open Firefox windows when I had to reboot a few moments ago. With all of those open windows and a fickle attitude from my laptop, I've had to keep a running log of all of my open URLs. That way, if my laptop crashes, I can quickly get back to where I was with all of those open windows. Now, I'm just trying to figure out if there's a better way to do this!
Here's what my URL list looks like right now:
