I’ve only used Adhesive a few times but it’s good

Backup Restore: It’s a manual process but it works great in a pinch

DoFollow is a fantastic idea and execution of a simple idea. It should be The Standard as far as rel=nofollow. Read up

Paged Comment Editing: Works great to sift through Spam Karma hits. Hopefully integrated into next WP.

Enhanced List Post: excellent functionality. Hopefully integrated into next WP.

Page Navigation: How I make my nav bar “Page: 1 | 2 | 3 | … | 42 Older Entries � ”

Popularity Contest: It’s kinda neat to see the stats. And it makes that “Most Popular Posts” nav bar item. Did you notice that when you are viewing different months or different categories, it shows you “Most Popular This Month” etc…?

Recent Comments: nav bar. Speaks for itself. Good.

Related Posts: How does this magic little thing work? I think it’s totally cool. It makes that “Possibly related posts �No robotic combat for you�Matrix Revolutions�Humvee as a status symbol” after every post.

Search Meter: If anyone ever used my search bar, it would tell me about it :-(

Search Everything: good

Google Sitemaps: Not activated b/c it doesn’t seem important. Google usually sees my blog updates in less than a week. (wow)

Spam Karma 2 – Reloaded: This has saved the blogosphere from an untimely end! I donated to him. You should too. This thing catches a LOT of comment spam. Virtually nothing gets through! It’s magic.

Subscribe to Comments: I think it’s a groovy feature…

Subscribe2: If anyone used this, they’d probably like it

Suggest: It -almost- works great. It has some browser compatibility issues and doesn’t work correctly if you aren’t starting from the blog homepage

Theme Switcher: A good thing but it doesn’t play nice with wp-cache

Words in Post: My first (and so far only) plugin. You might not even see it… if you mouse-over the title of a post, you’ll see how many words are in it. Joy.

wp-cache: improves the performance of the site… but it’s a bother. You have to turn it off when you’re playing with the site, otherwise you won’t see your updates, you’ll just see the cache. Otherwise, great.

wp paginate: wait, Maybe it’s this plugin that does the “Page: 1 | 2 | 3 | … | 41 Older Entries �” magic… maybe they work together. Uh oh. I forget how my site works. I’m doomed. Doomed, I tell you.

Random Image Generator is a good thing

narchive is a good thing too, though I suppose the page needs cleaning up a little.

nicetitle.js makes the titles have black backgrounds when you mouse-over them.

That’s the most of it.
