comment Internet kiosk for motel lobby?
I just checked out kiosk mode. It's good, but it seems to disable the address bar. Any way to get that back?

Right, I shouldn't have said "everything", but just those programs in the menus and such. Although the fact that you mentioned window managers leads me to think that it might be possible to use a minimal WM like blackbox and configure the browser to start and maximize at login.

Hm, I hadn't considered Opera, I'll look into it. With regard to Deep Freeze, I was hoping to not spend money (money's fairly tight) and instead just set up a RAM disk or whatever live CDs do.

comment Tiling Window Manager
Wow, that is exactly what I want. The only problem is that I don't use Windows - if you know of any software that does what yours does for Mac OS X or Linux I'm all ears. (and I'm going to download a copy of MaxTo for when I do use Windows).

comment Tiling Window Manager
Thank you for your reply. I just looked at a video of it in action and that's definitely a help in tiling the windows. I'm still hopeful that there's a program out there somewhere that does what I want though.

comment Is Fever any good?
Thanks for replying. I do tend to stay on top of my RSS by reading the feeds as they come in, so it sounds like, at least partially, my vigilance defeats the notion of sparks. However, I do read Reddit, HN, and sometimes Digg - how are feeds like this handled as sparks?
