a tip from Kevin Kelly's "Cool Tools"
When a couple of the little rubber feet (LRF) can off the bottom of my laptop, I tried without success to re-attach the small bits of rubber with "super glue", rubber cement, and a hot-glue gun. After the last attempt, I realized that the rubbery material used with the hot-glue gun could by itself serve as an LRF replacement. This worked so well I ended up ripping out the still-attached LRFs. By now the hot-glue replacements have served longer than the original LRFs.

Since I was at home when I read this I ran right over and plugged in the glue gun. Brilliantly simple solution to a problem I have been having myself.
