Can I use a fake photo for online dating?

I had a stalker years back and I was only able to shake them off by going virtually off grid. I had to stop dating online (because that's how he found me one of the times) and eventually I had to change my name, my home and my job and severe contacts with people I knew for years to get away from them. I would like to try online dating again, but this time maybe with a photo of someone with similar traits to mine, but not my real photo. [more inside]

more than playing around with coding, for $150 a month?

I am playing around with small ways to make a file database accessible to a group without using Box or Dropbox. I have been looking at various ways to learn coding html, css, and JavaScript at home for a couple hours each night and would like to hear about study plans self-learners have stuck with to develop apps and websites in three to four months. Any advice? [more inside]

Good online free or cheap courses in project management and Excel?

I recently started a new job as a Project Manager for an educational travel company and would like to beef up my Excel and project management skills. I was previously managing academic research studies. While a lot of that experience is relevant, my new responsibilities are more in line with those of a formally trained/certified Project Manager and so I’d like to do some self-study outside of work. Any recommendations out there for good online coursework? [more inside]

Six Week Ahead Online Calendar

Am looking for a free six-week-ahead online calendar. I currently use Backpackit calendar but the company stopped supporting it a few years ago plus it costs me $12/month. When I open Backpackit the calendar default view is the next six weeks. I find this incredibly useful. I have not yet found another online calendar that shows anything other than one month at a time. Any suggestions?

Options for storing my growing collection of movies/music/TV on my Mac?

I own a macbook with 256 GB of space. I used to have a 1 TB backup drive but it broke, along with the majority of my media files; this is the second time in two years that I've had a hard drive go bad on me. I opted for a smaller 256 GB SSD for backup this time around as I heard they're less prone to failing, but it's too small for me to put on much besides my Time Machine backup. What options do I have to store my other files? [more inside]

Tool to coordinate a bachelor party planning for 20+ gents?

Does anyone know of a good collaborative online resource that I could use to coordinate my brother's bachelor party? Essentially, I need to be able to coordinate schedules and accept suggestions and thoughts on what we can do. I'd think that there's a great collab website for this, but my google-fu is failing mightily. Help Askme-wan-kenobi, you're my only hope.

What's the best alternative to Turbo Tax?

Simply stated- TurboTax is a scummy company with a checkered past that always makes me feel weird using it. Surely there has to be a spritely, young up and comer in the tax game? My taxes are pretty simple- I have a few 1099s, perilously little income and student loans out the wazoo. Nothing too weird. What else is out there?

What's up with the one sentence replies? Online dating edition.

Recently I've been trying some online dating.

What is this? Should I even bother replying again at that point? [more inside]

Search furnishings by size?

I often find myself looking for very specific furniture or home decor products. For example: right now I'm looking for a square basket (or open container) with a drawer in the base that measures no more than 11 inches wide and 22 inches long, and I was wondering if there was a way to search for home products by size, shape, and dimension in the same way you'd search for clothes by size?

Learning math online

I want to learn math. I signed up for Khan Academy and I like the format a lot. I really like that there are short lessons that I can complete, and that the software automatically checks the answers and lets me continue when I completed a string of 5 good answers in a row (or something similar). I don't like the video explanations though. I'm just not a video person, I learn much better from text. Is there something like Khan Academy where you can do math exercises online but where the explanation is in text?
