What do you think makes the awesomest casual brunch/dinner party?

House tours (not the Newport, RI variety): specific to American hosts?

Do people outside of the US commonly go through the ritual of giving new guests "the tour" of their homes (i.e. a walkthrough, or at least peek at, every single room of the house/apartment, beyond what is necessary--not talking about overnight guests or housesitters, or showing folks the bathroom and where to put the coats)?

Mirror a video RSS feed on a secondary server?

I work in an educational environment, and we have a local media server set up to record lectures and then allow them to be watched/downloaded online via podcast-type RSS, but only a limited number can be stored before they're deleted. How can I go about setting up a mirror of this RSS feed that will allow me to store these recordings indefinitely? More details inside. [more inside]

Where can I find organizing and group facilitation training?

I've recently assumed a role that calls on me to do some serious community-building and group facilitation and I'm feeling pretty unprepared. I'd love advice on possible trainings -- workshops, conferences, methods, even online resources. I'm open to anything really, from the micro of how groups form and interact, to more zoomed out training on the development of large communities and even social movements. [more inside]

I want to change the homepage of my domain at a specific time. How?

Pretty much what it says on the tin. I currently have index.html as the top level page on my domain. On a specific day at a specific time, I want to have that page change to e.g. index2.html more or less permanently. I would like this to be a surprise and specifically timed, so it needs to be a) server side, and ideally b) invisible even to someone poking around. GoDaddy is my host, I have complete backend access to everything, and know next to nothing about php or js, so please explain like I'm 5.

Best UK hosting company for email addresses with an external domain?

An organisation I volunteer for has been hosting the local chapter's email inboxes for a while now, but they have announced that they will no longer be doing so. I have been tasked with finding a hosting company that will let us have 10-20 email addresses with an external domain. In your experience, o Hivemind, what's the best hosting company for this? Hit me with your anecdata. Thank for kind.

Christmas parties shouldn't involve a trip to the grocery store, right?

My boyfriend is having some coworkers over tomorrow night for a little get-together/party thing. This isn't their official christmas party (they had that at work last night), just a few (6-7 or so people) getting together. When asked about what he's doing for food, my boyfriend just assumed they'd all just go to the grocery store to get something, which I personally find pretty... weird. As I'm helping host, I want to provide better noms! [more inside]

Looking for a good webhost that will let me run Unix processes

I'm in need of a new webhost, and I need the following: SSH/SFTP, PHP support, ability to run background processes (namely the Unix version of Dropbox), webmail forwarding, and monthly payments. I don't need much space (1 GB would likely be plenty) or bandwidth (1 GB/mo? maybe?), and the Dropbox process is literally the only thing I would have running. What's my best, cheapest option? Thanks!

How to create short, masking url for single .html file in Dropbox?

(Sorry, I'm Internet-challenged:) I keep a small website (essentially it's one html file) in my Dropbox folder as a minimalist way to share my various weird projects with friends. I like everything about this solution except the fact, that website's address is this ugly dl.dropbox.com/​u/​yadayayda​ydyadyada/​something/​somethingelse.html Is there a way to mask this address from showing up in browser and replace it with something more elegant and free? Or is this some next level stuff?

Give me your best tips for big family Thanksgiving meals.

I usually host Thanksgiving for our family, and I do a fairly good job. People have fun and the food's ok. I'm usually not too rushed at the last minute. I know it could be better, though. So here's my question: what special thing do you make or do that makes your Thanksgiving particularly efficient, or fun, or tasty, or awesome looking, or easy to clean up, or otherwise excellent? I'm especially interested in buffet serving ideas and what you use to make those look great or taste great (and should I buy one of those three-crock-pot serving thingies? I feel like my food gets cold really fast.) I want to hear everything from what you make in advance and how you reheat it, to how you deal with cleaning up all those big dishes afterwards. What about music? What about table decor? Tell me everything. [more inside]

If I've upgraded PHP on my Mac, should I now avoid all OS X Updates?

If I've upgraded PHP on my Mac, should I now avoid all OS X Updates? I'm hosting a website on a Mac mini in a datacenter, and some of my software required a newer version of PHP than what's included out-of-the-box in OS X Mountain Lion. I keep getting the notification saying system updates are ready, and restart to install. But I'm scared it's going to overwrite my PHP upgrades and break everything. And it took me an insanely long time to get the PHP upgrade to work properly and play nicely with OS X Server.

Low-cost, low-maintenance web infrastructure for volunteer group?

I have been tasked with finding a web solution for a volunteer group associated with a university. There are already pages on one of the departments' websites, however, it will be months before any changes can be made to that as it's under the rule of a CMS which is about to be migrated and to which we won't be able to really do anything until November. We want all the usual stuff like a blog and a Twitter widget and latest news and yadda yadda, but anything we add - and possibly anything we remove - would have to wait till November if we use the existing hosting arrangement. This is why I want to stick up another web infrastructure for us somewhere else, probably not hosted by the university. [more inside]
