The page is titled "SnapShot Upgrades Tutorial by Talia Tokugawa", at http://www.koinup.com/TaliaTokugawa/work/135784/as-list/. I put firstname.lastname@example.org in the recipient field, so my snapshot will automatically go to the "Snapzilla" Second Life screenshot site run by Cristiano Midnight.
You can put multiple addresses there by separating the addresses with semicolons. You could put multiple addresses and delete the ones you don't want.
I wonder if it is possible to put a dropdown list, but that's just an untested thought of mine.
Some email addresses are hard to remember or type accurately, which makes this is a nice find, in my view. Thanks to Talia Tokugawa for posting it.
Snapzilla, by the way, is part of Cristiano Midnight's SLUniverse.com site, which has a popular SL forum and other features in addition to Snapzilla.
Unfortunately there's no post showing here. My comments are now gone into the thin air. And the clip doesn't show in Clipmark's "My Clips" feature.
I don't see any place to contact Clipmark support, which is not surprising, but I also don't see a Clipmark user's forum, which is disappointing.
Trying Clipmarks was part of a search for ways to make blogging, tweeting, checking feeds, reading multiple email accounts, etc. as easy and effortless and fluid as possible, so if anyone has any ideas along those lines I'd be glad to hear them.
Seems like it ought to be possible for the program used to design the PDF file in to allow adding hints on how to display the information as HTML, thus reducing the need to resort to using Adobe Reader or the equivalent to view the file with. This would be vaguely similar to the way that font files contain hints on how to optimize the font display on different devices.
I really hate it when I come across a pdf file in search results. People are generally not going to print most of the files, so why create them for printing instead of designing them for convenient viewing onscreen?
I'm wondering if these metamaterials might be able to make a computer monitor screen appear to be farther away than they actually are.
If so, perhaps there's a way I could view my monitors without wearing my reading glasses.

I am upgrading the ProtoTerra virtual world.
It insisted on upgrading DirectX, which I just recently upgraded myself. I'm not too pleased by that.
The ProtoTerra installation caused my JetStart program launcher to crash.
My avatar's thorax is transparent. No shirt, no chest or stomach skin.
I'm wearing wings. I suppose I must have put on wings when I was last here, but I don't recall doing that.
You don't seem to be able to pivot in place with the mouse. Right button move the camera, left button makes the avatar walk.
I wish that virtual worlds would allow you to use a screen based movement system instead of an avatar relative movement system. When your avatar is facing you, pressing the forward and arrow keys feels backwards.
As often happens in virtual worlds I have jumped out of the area you are supposed to be in. In this case, I have become trapped in the forbidden area and can't walk or jump my way back in.
There's list of places to go to, so I can get out of the forbidden area.
I found a meeting room with a screen for watching video. I sat in the chair, which focused my camera on the screen, but from behind my head, so that my head was blocking my view. I zoomed in with the mouse scroll wheel, but the view was at an angle, and I couldn't change the angle to look at the screen head on, or make the video screen larger. I tried my left mouse button, which seemed to work, but I then realized that that had made me stand up and walk right up into the screen.
Movement is fluid, and the walking and running animations are pretty nice.
I wish I could fly, and jump higher.
There's no one here, so far as I can tell.
