For Triceps, I do the over the shoulder exercise, sometimes with both hands, sometimes invividually(left arm really struggles with this!)
ALSO, I want to know when the best time move up in weights is. I only got the Bouflex 20 lb ones, and I do plan on getting heavier ones later(my dad wanted to see just how much I'd use them). My friend told me that doing a lot of exercises with small weights is better than doing less with heavier weights. For instance, I can easily curl 20 pounds with my right arm, and 25(with some difficulty, but I can still curl it), but not as many times as 15. With 15, I can keep going on, because it's manageable to lift, and the more times I lift, the more stress I put on the muscle.
ALSO, I just work Triceps and Biceps, they're the 2 main ones, right? What other ones should I look to? I know someone told me not to disregard any muscles, but any other major ones I simply can not afford to miss?
Your friend is wrong about lifting lower weight. I started at 40lb(dumbell) and did that for a month and I never noticed much of a difference. I started doing high weights, low reps. It's probably been about 6 months and I'm up to 150lb.
Aside from skull crushers and curls, you should probably do the Upright Row and Bench Press's (or Pec Fly's if you dont have a bench). Not for your arms specifically but you don't want to have really strong arms and have a weak chest.
EDIT: getting tired of GS crapping all over my posts...
it's best to use a barbell IMO. Also do as much weight as you can manage in six reps. Eat food with high protein before and after exercising. you should spend less than a half hour on your arms. highest weight possible, shorten the breaks in between and low reps.
low weights and high reps is only good for toning not for building muscle.

Is OSX really that good?
Not really, I put a hacked versions on a Dell D400 and I wasn't impressed at all. It wasn't bad for simple tasks but nothing that would pull me away from Vista or Ubuntu. If you want your desktop to impress get Ubuntu and put beryl on it, first time you use it, it will blow your mind.
Aside from Ubuntu, I still think that Vista and/or XP is/are still much easier to use and overall the GUI is just much better. Also, I believe that Apple computers really aren't the best for people who are knowledgable about computer as their really isn't much you can do with them aside from what Apple tells you is acceptable. I can't legally put OS X on any system I want, no real way to change any system settings except for the wallpaper and a ridiculous EULA that quite literally says that I can't use their products for "the developement, design, manufacture or production of missles or nuclear, chemichal or biological weapons."
