  • Hire a husband

    To give single ones among us a hand with odd tasks or to keep nagging at bay and stay in marital bliss, Husband to Rent "was set up to offer professional assistance to clients who are busy with their careers and can't find time to do small home repairs."

    Giving them a call or using the online contact form lets you purchase help for jobs including fixing furniture, painting, cleaning, setting up satellite TV, furniture arranging and renovation. The U.K.-based 'husbands' can be hired for £40 an hour, £80 for 3 hours, £150 per day -- for eight hours -- or for larger jobs, the price is negotiable.

  • Make good use of your 404 page

    If you are a website owner with a bland 404 page, why not put it to good social use?

    This is the concept behind the NotFound project, which gives website masters an application that automatically publishes a picture of a missing child on every 'not found' page of a website. At the moment, the application mainly shows children missing in Belgium, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and the U.K., although the project will soon launch in the United States and Canada.
