peer-to-peer filesharing programs work, if you search for
"something.avi", many of the other nodes on the filesharing network will
receive information like "user #131072 wants to know if 'something.avi'
is available." Even Freenet has to do something like this. If you
meant, "Does Limewire send the contents of ~/.mozilla/$PROFILE/$BLAH/
history.dat or ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/konq_history to other
Limewire nodes?" , then the answer is probably "no" for obvious reasons.

right-click on the desktop, then select Create New->Link to Application.
Name it whatever you want ("Link to APplication" is the default) then
click the "execute" tab. Put the full path to the command you want to
run in the "Command" edit field.
