Seeking all-in-one SFF headline site for daily reading
Seeking recommendations for a site with good coverage of books, films, comics etc. centered around SFF nerdery for my RSS reader. I used to read The Mary Sue, but have been meh about it since its revamp. I'm currently trying out Tor.com, but I'm looking for other alternatives. Feminist orientation is a plus, but not mandatory. I don't play video games, and I'm not particularly interested in rewatches/rereads other than on FanFare.

Please help me come up with a project name that's in Ancient Greek!
I have this super-secret yet super-awesome Super-Quantizer program thingie that does cool things to music. For various reasons the words "Platonic score" are always used in my mind and in the code so I was hoping to carry that tradition on in naming that aspect of the project with something in Ancient Greek.

Can you help me decipher and rectify my InDesign CS5 pre-flight errors?
I've spent the last several months studying Creative Suite 5, print production, and pre-press and now I'm trying to put it all to work to get a dozen digital art pieces (mostly made in Illustrator > InDesign, but a few also using Photoshop) print-ready for art proofs and eventually web offset printing. The images are either 6x9 or 11x17 if that matters. The list of errors I keep getting, and as much context as I can provide, are within. [more inside]

How do I use Raleway's alternate numerals?
So, I'm using Raleway. It has numbers that descend, though, like the 3, 4, 5, etc. But it also appears to have numbers that do not descend. Yay. How do I use them? Bonus points: how do I make UIKit use them?

What do I search to find a photoshop specialist who makes fake things?
So I got the go ahead from work to hire a photoshop artist to mock up some fake stuff for a presentations. Imagine for our purposes it's essentially for scenes for fake TV shows from the 70s. So I went to look on ELANCE and...well I have no idea what I'm looking for here. How would I search for such a person? Is there a term or series of terms for someone who specializes in speculative photoshop/graphic mockups? IS this a thing? Or is this a case of post the job and see what comes back?

I love The Spinners and Philly Soul from the 70-75 era. Lets dig deeper.
Im up here at the tip of the iceberg of Philly Soul with The Spinners, The Delfonics, Blue Magic, etc. but I want to dig deeper into this stuff and find some bands/songs/records that I might not encounter otherwise, since history has a way of remembering the big stuff and forgetting some of the amazing but less well known stuff. So help me down the rabbit hole here if you please to find even more music in that vein.
