Anyway, the RTFM bros go about it the wrong way, but educating users of any software (free/open source or otherwise) about their options for solving things *on their own* is a great thing.

I see a lot of clients who use proprietary software let down by their options in this regard again and again.

You need to evaluate the management. Do they respect tenant rights? Is the desk clerk skeevy?

Do you want to live in a big impersonal complex? Or a little boarding house, where people share a lot and have house parties? You can even be a "home owner" and run your own instance (pay the bills, fix the plumbing).

who knows a quick way to download/export my own bookmarks from ?

we should invent more of our own paradigms

i wonder what a cool unexplored idea could be? hmm…!
