Weekend Project: Replace Delicious with an Open Source Bookmark Service

The past two weeks have been rough for users of the Yahoo-owned "social bookmarking" service, Delicious. First, reports leaked out that Yahoo was shutting the site down.

Weekend Project: Theming Your Linux Bootloader

These days, a lot of Linux users have one distro on their main machines and do everything they can to boot into a usable desktop as fast as possible. Those of us who dual-boot multiple distros — or even OSes — though, still have to stare at the bootloader screen for a few seconds every time we power-cycle.
