I need a crossword creator tool that will allow me to choose my words and post the clues. There are a great many that let me do this and then print out my results and hand out as necessary. I want my final result though to be a live form that i can embed on my website that students can go to and fill out online. The search terms that I am using keep pointing me to creators that I have to print out. Any help would be great. posted by dstopps at 6:15 AM - 0 answers

I am on an AT&T family plan.
I have had an iPhone 3GS since about 2011, and just upgraded to an iPhone 5c.
I still have the 3GS.
What is the best way for me to use this phone with a monthly plan completely separate from the family plan, with any carrier?
Our daughter is on the Virgin 35/month plan. That seems pretty good. Am I hosed because this phone was locked into AT&T, or whatzers? posted by battleshipkropotkin at 7:29 PM - 7 answers
I read this article that said there was a button on the Google Earth site that let you download wallpapers. The article states there's a "globe" link at the bottom of the page, however when I load the Earth page I don't see that icon. Does anyone else? Or can I get to the images somewhere else? posted by cozenedindigo at 6:12 PM - 7 answers

I've created simple Google spreadsheet which calculates some data entered by users. Now I need to share it with my co-workers. The problem is that when I set a share on it any data entered by one user is instantly visible to all others. I want independent copies of my spreadsheet so anybody could enter different data and get different results. In short I need to turn my Google spreadsheet into a interactive webpage something doing something like this. Is it possible? posted by przepla at 3:06 PM - 5 answers
Simple question, is there a wiki service out there (free) that integrates a list-serv into the wiki itself so as to not have to use two different services for wiki creation and communications? We will mostly be using a list-serv to communicate among our campaign team, but want a repository for documents, lists and meeting minutes, to-do's, etc - all in the same place / URL.

I have never sold a domain name before but it appears I'm about to do so now. Yay! An offer was made to me by a buyer through Sedo and after some email negotiations we have arrived at an acceptable price and presumably the process of transfer and payment is about to begin. Having never done this before I am wondering if there are any pitfalls and gotchas I should be watching out for. Specific details inside. [more inside] posted by Hairy Lobster at 10:50 AM - 1 answers
As a long time Linux Engineer I enjoy reading about the technologies used by sites like Twitter, Facebook, Etsy, Yahoo (for things like Flickr) and other large sites to build things out to scale. I often lend a hand with Windows customers at work and it recently occurred to me that I've never seen a website or blogposts that relate to scaling on Windows.

Recipients in my Outlook “sent items” folder, despite having the exact same email address, can have any one of 4 forms of displayed email address, which makes sorting by sender and date a real pain, as Outlook sees each recipient as entirely distinct / separate, despite them actually having the exact same address. See inside for example of what i mean... [more inside] posted by kev23f at 6:25 AM - 6 answers

I have recently acquired the keyboard for the IBM 5150 Personal Computer. It also came with a DIN-5 to PS/2 adapter, so I plugged into my desktop, and everything screeched to a halt -- typing occurred very delayed from the key presses, mouse became inoperable. Is this the keyboard, the adapter, some software incompatibility, or something else completely? [more inside] posted by subversiveasset at 9:01 AM - 9 answers

I recently purchased an Asus All-in-One computer as a replacement for my Dell XP system. The two computers are used in tandem, with the Asus used as the main monitor for the Dell. The XP unit will be used off line starting in March of 2014 and will remain in tandem so that certain XP only software can still be used. The systems are a Windows 8.1, Asus ET2411INKIB011K and a Windows XP SP3 Dell T3400

I've just spent several hours trying to find addresses and phone numbers for old friends who have relocated. Is there a standard URL to use to find different cities' white pages listings? One that doesn't want to charge me a monthly fee, that is - something that's up to date and free. Thanks, Mefites! posted by summerstorm at 5:48 PM - 7 answers
