Share, Edit Lenghty Texts with Others

Here is a nice little web app that lets you share any text with others. Just go to Friendpaste and type or paste some text that you want to share.
Clicking on Submit Post will provide you a url address to a webpage that contains your text.

Optionally you can assign a password that can be used to prevent others from viewing or editing that text. Besides plain text, Friendpaste also supports many popular programming languages. Older revisions of the text is also maintained.

Undo Send Mail in Gmail

Five seconds is all you got to save your back! A new addition in gmail labs allows you to prevent a mail from being actually sent after you hit the send email button i.e if you undo it within 5 seconds.

Technically, you can't undo a mail that has already been sent. This feature just makes Gmail wait for a few seconds before the actual delivery process starts. Anyway, who cares as long as it works. So if you quickly realize some goof up in that email to your boss, you know what to do.
