Damn Good Website: YubNub

Tired of saving your web favorites locally? YubNub is an Internet command line tool that allows you to assign "commands" (think keyword shortcuts) to any URL you like. For example, type in "/." and YubNub directs you to slashdot.org. "Sarah" catapults you to this very page (I created it myself, naturally). As long as your command isn't already taken, you could dream up whatever cute little interweb nicknames your little heart desires, assign them to your favorite URLs, and they'll be consistent no matter what computer you hop onto. Check out the current command list to see what others are adding, and then add YubNub to your Firefox search bar.

» Vanity Blogging: YubNub from Mostly Muppet Dot Com
I’m no stranger to vanity blogging. I use my blog url as a Technorati tag. I’ve submitted my site to every blog search engine imaginable. I ping all the requisite services. And now, thanks to G4’s Sarah Lane, I use YubNub. YubNu... [Read More]

» YubNub from Lawrence "The Dreamer" Chen's Blog
Here's a cool site for creating your own Internet Shortcuts. I just created one called "ivs", which takes you to the ReplayTV IVS tester. Better yet, if you type something like: ivs 00004-54832-37760 It'll test it right away. Alas, the examp... [Read More]

{LOL} ... I actually caught a few of his bits & he didn't seem to take ANY of K.P.'s (numerous) attempts to 'steal his airtime' with laxity!
*GAVE AS GOOD AS HE GOT*
We'll just have to wait & see what The Suits want.

sullydude

MEGAPHONE THIS!

The Inquisitor

Shinjin, its not that I don't "care"; its just that the effort taken to state my position is not worth the trouble or the effort. Its wasted time and energy. There are more important things in this world to worry about, so let's get on with it.

hollahollanig

Sarah had it goin on today at AOTS!!!

larah sane

everyone who talks about leaving her alone... i agree leave her alone. cause she's mine! ha ha ha. f-off punks. kev was too busy playing with linux to treat her right.

Chris Gore

I am so blessed to be on tv. I have a horrible delivery on camera. Do yourself a favor and mute the sound when I speak.

samuel

Kevin P. must have been an only child. He constantly interrupts people. A clear sign he is starved for attention.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Thomas Sneddon

Ms. Lane I'm just posting here to let you know that if you want to sue any of these losers posing as celebs, yourself, or even your Mother, I can guarantee a conviction. I'll bet my job on it.

Micheal Jackson

HE HE!!!!

I hate ATOS

u suck big time!!! and whats up with your hair do on attack of the show!!!! just shut up

John

While her hair was wierd on yesterday's AOTS, that is no reason to insult the lady. Play nice or don't play at all.

lethalevenasleep

Sarah your hair was so cool! It look like you were out of a video game! I loved it!

ZenBro

*I* thought your hairdo was - refreshingly - sassy!

Brad

i cant believe were discussing her hair

http://www.xanga.com/private/home.aspx?user=ps2junkie_90

by the way, inquisitor, u need to get msn

Drew

Actually, I like the way her hair looked a few yeard ago. I think she looked good with brown hair.

Caitlin

That's super!
Thanks for sharing!

Yucko

How did these comments get so miserably off track?

Mary Kate Olsen

Yeah people lets get this back on track...but Sarah can you or Kevin R hook me up with some erb? My um...glaucoma is acting up.

Jennifer Aniston

Sarah mabye its time you should break the silence. I feel a lot better now after talking to Vanity Fair and I think it would do you a lot of good too, though I don't think Vanity Fair would find it worth printing. Mabye you should give Game Informer a call.

benboxer

Hey does anyone think Sarah needs glasses? I just saw Wednesday's show(6-15) and she talked about how she messed up all the jokes(not being able to read them properly? ...not that it would have helped the jokes) and messed up reading the last question on the teleprompter. I'm sure she's got vision covered in her health insurance plan. This might explain her hair and wardrobe lately too.

Bill

Well we all know that Sarah and Kevin broke up, we are beyond that now so there is no need to ask if they broke up. I noticed that Kevin seems interested in Amber MacAurther from CFH 2.0 now. In fact he asks her publicly on her picture blog if he can go up to Canada and visit again. Here is the link:
http://ambermac.textamerica.com/?r=2690904

Dan Huard

NOT TRUE MAN!!! Kevin broke up with Sarah but he is now dating me. He only want to go to Toronto to hook up with that Mikey guy. He has no interest in babes.

dlp_93

Gosh you freakin idiots ... Get your OWN woman and adore her. You will he happier, I promise..........

Dragonboy

...thinking....you should have your title be typed out with a typewriter effect...i could give you the code if you want...

Anne

That could be dangerous!

(I have no idea how - addiction?)

John Doe

Yeah I knew they broke up when I saw Kevin posting pictures of his girl "friends"
http://kevinrose.textamerica.com/?r=2698773
I also noticed that he took Sarah's textamercia page out of "My Favorites" in his textamerica page, and put Amber MacArther's there instead. Along with Dan and switcherman.
http://kevinrose.textamerica.com/
So what everyone was speculating about is true then. Now we know and wish the best to that pimp Kevin.

me

well... all my hopes are now gone... Sarah has finally taken kevin off her list of sites on her blog, and her list of links on her moblog. I cant believe I care so much!?

Caleb

I appreciate all the hard work im assuming you put into the show... (lol, you can never REALLY trust what you find on T.V.) um... ah yes, I found Yubnub to be very helpful for publicity of blogs and various websites, as long as you know words that everyone is searching for. It's Always interesting to hear your comments and insight with everything that ever existed... (Seriously, you never run out.... and hope you never do)

Always looking forward to another show,
Guy-Who-Never-Expects-Any-Reply-In-Any-Way-Shape-Or-Form
A.K.A. Caleb... lol

P.S. Try searching my name on Yubnub!! EVERYONE!!!

Brad

y would we care about what goes on in ur life? its more fun to talk about ppl weve all seen, albeit on tv.

The Inquisitor

Maybe Sarah took the links out because she's tired of HEARING SPECULATION ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP? Just a thought.

Jake

Hey buttmunches, if Sarah doesn't like Kevin anymore, then why does she have links to SYSTM and DIGG?

benboxer

So what does she have to do to become just Sarah Lane and not 'Sarah Lane?...Oh yeah she was Kevin R's gf right?'

Kattie Holmes

Hey everyone. Just wanted to say hi and make a huge anouncement. If you haven't heard, Tom and I are engaged. Sarah, you are difently invited to the wedding.

Tom Cruise

Sorry Sarah but Katie got away from her best friend for a minute and made some offer without our approval. You have to take this personality test first. I've provided the link.

Rick

Oh brother... Sarah needs to post a new entry so that the comments can get back on track.

subliminaloutbrk

yea definetly agree with rick.

also she should take a note out of kevin pereira's blog and podcast!

Ryan Draga

cool lil' firefox app, sarah!!
...just lost my digital cable, so haven't really been able to watch AOTS much...but what's this i hear about Adam Sessler joining your merry band of techno-loonies??

ah-hah! notice too, that i HAVEN'T said anything about you and kevin!! oh...wait...CRAP!!! i just did say something about you and kevin.... *puts on darth vader mask* NOOOOOOOOO!!! quick, shoot me before i turn into another creepy fanboy, filling your inbox with sappy geek poetry, professing my creepy stalker-love for you!!!

Will

hey. theres a lot of comments eh? anywho, even though it is sad you two have broken up or even if you haven't, i want to thank you and kevin (even tho he may not read this) for being such great people and inpiring me to become better at what i love. thanks! have a great life. you deserve it.

Does G4 pay enough to live in SoCal and still afford Margaritas at Skybar?

eggo

Found something similar but without people adding millions of rubbish commands, you just suggest them to the webmaster I think. www.eggo.co.uk

Steve.

Michael

Holy crap, that's a lot of comments! :-)

I just wanted to let you know that you can achieve the same effect as using YubNub with Firefox's own bookmarks.

Bookmark your page. Then go to your bookmarks menu and *right* click on the bookmark you just added. Choose "properties" and put your shortcut word in the "keyword" field. Works exactly the same as what you described in your post.

Lorelei

Neither Sarah nor Kevin "owe" anybody details of their personal lives. Please show some restraint from asking personal questions, thanks....

rodmon

you like gilmore girls, lorelai..figures somebody who watches that show would say something like that. I know it is wrong to get into people's presonal lives, but when you make something public like your relationship, it is obvious that people will ask and speculate, so i believe it is good for hits on your webpage.

Karyyk

NEWS FLASH: What once was common knowledge is still apparently quite true. Despite their new-found social acceptance and foul-mouthed antics, nerds still need to get a friggin' life.

Yay...

jjac

kevin broke up with her because she's a cum catcher.
