How to print an a5 booklet on a4 paper

I want to print an a5 sized booklet on a4 paper. So basically 8 separate pages would fit on one double-sided a4 sheet, and then I would manually cut the a4 sheet in half down the middle. Is there a simple way to create a document in the order I want it read in and have the pages printed in the right order for folding the booklet, eg the first page and the last page would be on the same sheet just on different sides of it?

Should I try and and save these drives?

So I have two external hard drives that have issues. I spoke with a local computer repair/data recovery company, they are estimating $350-700 for the pair. The data on there isn't actually worth that much to me. Are there any recovery steps I should try on my own? [more inside]

I'm looking for the best team-management tool for my recreational a cappella group. Right now we use a mishmash of email, Facebook, Google Calendar, and texting, so tons of important information slips through the cracks and we waste time trying to get everyone on the same page. I'd really like to consolidate all of these to a single, centralized platform. [more inside]

Mirror iMac monitor hotkey?

My spouse and I own an 27-inch iMac from 2011. Recently, the screen seemed to go briefly haywire and then black. Now, when the computer is turned on, it seems to boot fine, but nothing can be seen on the screen (the flashlight trick did not help). Is there a way to make the computer mirror itself to another monitor at startup so that we can access its contents? [more inside]
