One of my greatest websites I ever made (and hard-coded all myself) using MediaWiki open-source as base platform is SiteHoppin.com.

SiteHoppin has been re-launched as a domain search engine.  Basically, it’s like Digg but we only store your URL infomation, no content whatsoever other than previews under iFrames.

You can also submit your blog/website URLs as they will get indexed by Google and other search engines

SiteHoppin Private Beta Toolbar v.1.3 is now out, which integrates online tagging/hopping together.

What does it do?

Basically, it allows you to “hop” your favorite bookmarks using tags.  (I cut down about 20 minutes of time in browsing tech blogs I go to.  You could probably save a lot of time using this function if you visit 10-20 same sites daily)

DIY TV HACK – How to hook up your TV to your computer! (Or 2 Monitors)

Well, this is a real short hack (or a howto really) for hooking up your TV to your computer.
