One of the most annoying things about the late 2012 vintage of YouTube is that the home page is an amalgam of your subscriptions (not in reverse chronological order, of course) and YouTube's recommendations. I'd rather just have the home page be my subscriptions feed, so when I click on the YouTube logo, it takes me there instead of a page I don't care about.
One of the most annoying "features" of Minecraft are Endermen's reaction to weather effects: if they get caught out in the rain, they take damage (great!) and randomly teleport within a 32 block radius of their location (boo!). This causes situations where Endermen will randomly appear in your normally ultra-secure lair and steal your stuff.

Kongregate is a great site for online Flash gaming, combining the ease of use of Flash with the addiction of an achievement system. However, for some reason, they don't provide an RSS feed of the latest badges added to the site. So, I've created a feed using Feed43 you can use to view badges as they come in.

This Automator workflow will create a new text file on the Desktop with the name notes-YYYY-MM-DD.txt, where YYYY, MM, and DD are replaced with the current year, month, and day, respectively. It will then open that file in the default text editor. This was inspired by a conversation with Nic Boman.
This is an automator script saved as an application for converting images to a web-ready format. Download and unzip the application, then drag your photos onto it: the converted photos will be placed on your desktop. Inspiration for this program can be found on Friendfeed here. It should work in Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5: hopefully it works for you!
