I like that plan.

Works if I'm using old version of software and really want the old page.

Works if what I really want is the new feature that I didn't know existed.

Tells me to change my bookmark.

Yep, works on all levels.

(Now, I don't suppose you have a quick way to go through those "hey, 
that's neat, bookmark it / move the email to the "keep" folder" entries? 
Decide which ones aren't as neat and useful as I thought, which ones I 
can use today, and which ones I should read later? Ah well, kids start 
school next week.)
