Saw this on BBC Click yesterday, a great idea for a forum where you get asked questions that could easily have been Googled!

LetMeGoogleThatForYou is a modified Google Search. You enter your serach string and it creates a unique link that your post into the answer.

When that link is visited you get an animated search which shows the OP how to search themselves next time!

Try this as an example.

That's brilliant! Someone else who watches Click besides me! Laughing

The DeskSpace thingy that was featured by the same lass is pretty good too - I use it. It give's you 6 desktops arranged around a cube. Without it I really do have too many icons.

People clicking on the links will soon get the message. Wink

Mac and Linux users have virtual desktops native in the OS already. Linux have had it since year dot. It can be very useful with spaces organised by task.
