This is like the fourth platform where I stored and separated all my vast collection of bookmarks; I moved them all (at great pains) to Google cause I thought iGoogle would stick around for a while.
I have all my bookmarks, a currency quote for the 3 currencies I use, headlines, stock market quotes & 3 different headline services.

ok, I hate to give up all my valuable secrets, but here's one that another longtime programmer told me was "genius".
I make an HTML page, (e.g.- "mystuff.html") and keep it on my desktop. That single page contains links to everything that's important to me. I'm one click away from all my administration consoles, login to various accounts, all SE's, favorite sites, watched ebay listings, local craigslist with several pre-loaded searches as URLs, etc..
Whenever I install a new browser, the first thing I do is make that file my home page.
If you need it from the road, you can also upload a copy of it to a backwater directory somewhere so only you can get to it, take a copy on disk, flash-drive, whatever... low tech but I don't have to depend on anyone.
bye bye iGoogle... I used you for a week once.
