Launchy and Winamp

Just got back into using Launchy - the Silverlight of the XP world. Found that it won't work with mp3 files (i'm using winamp in this case) if the media library is a named computer on the same network. You'll have to map a drive letter to the library first and then use that. Then Alt-Space and you're away.

Lifehacker has a great article on tweaking Launchy for twitter, amongst others, here.

Wikipedia on yer phone

Google Mdict and Wiki.mdk (the 120Mb reduced wikipedia). Chuck them on your phone and hey presto you can win most arguments down the pub.
