Is there a way to bookmark topics as you find them on the forums?  I'll often come across a topic I'd like to come back to, but 9-times-out-of-ten can't find the topic I was interested in later on when I have a chance to go back. 

I've looked on the "help" page and couldn't find anything obvious, and I'm hesitant to use the "notify" button, since my e-mail is already clogged enough.

I'm a bit on the incompetent side of the techno-skill continuum, so my apologies if I've missed something completely obvious.

Thanks,
--Will

I know that the new software has bookmarking.

Thanks, Paul.  Is that something I should download on my end?

Go have a look at the forum software at coderanch.com - I hope we will be moved to that software in a week or two.  It has bookmarking stuff in it. 

Of course, you could do bookmarking with something like delicious.  If everybody here did a bunch of bookmarking at delicious, I think it tells other people at delicious "hey - look over there!  Lots of delicious people seem to like stuff over there!"

I just save topics in my Firefox bookmarks.

Thanks Paul & Warren...I'll check out the coderanch site, and I didn't think of delicious.
Best,

Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
