The website is a collection of images, and one images leads to the next, in an associative way. Like, one composition suggests the next image, like a group of colorful balloons suggests a pile of colorful trash which then suggests a crowd of people, etc., and it seems to go on endlessly.

A website that uses Buffetology to assess the "real" value of stocks
Years ago, I remember stumbling across a website that took the methods of a book called Buffettology (written by an ex-member of the Buffett family) and allowed you to evaluate any type of stock using the techniques of that book. Basically, you input a stock and it did a bunch of calculations according to the formulas provided in that book and gave you a list of bunch values. I am still looking for this website and wondering if anybody has ever come across it. To give an example, you type in a stock's name and some information about the stock and it would give you an output in csv format about all the values that stock might have. Or you could have downloaded it to EXCEL. If you don't know of this particular website, do you know of anything similar? Thanks

I am advising on the creation of a web portal for the sales of homes. One of the concerns is that buyer and seller will find each other via the site but then carry out the purchase on their own, cutting the site out of a potential "intermediary" fee.
Does anybody have any ideas / experience on how this can be addressed?

I recall being directed to a site/blog which had short anecdotes, submitted by users, about bad experiences with gynos/doctors/nurses, often focussing on hospitals/childbirth etc. A similar interface to fmylife.com
On a specific day of the week they showcased the opposite, good experiences and health professionals who went out of their way to provide care.
Does anyone know which site this is? I think I may have even found it through AskMeFi, but a search turned up nothing. Thanks.

For a research project, we’re asking ~24 high school and college students to log their experiences with homework by sending us text messages and photos over the course of about two weeks. Is there a site where they can send those messages so that we could see them from a computer? There are particular features we’re seeking... What comes closest to satisfying them? [more inside]

I'm creating a simple website. It will be a single page with a photograph and a block of text. I will need to update it with a new photograph and a new block of text at a certain time each day, say midnight. I anticipate being able to do this manually most of the time, but would like an option to somehow pre-load at least one photo and text block and have the site automatically update if needed. It would also be great to have multiple days' worth ready to go without human intervention. [more inside]

Sometimes, I am a front-end web developer. Frequently, I meet new people at work who want to turn really complicated Excel documents into dazzlingly interactive web applications.
Besides Excel's "Save to Web App" or "Save to SharePoint" features
, such people ask if I can tap into an industry to support this -- perhaps scads of agencies and web-based or downloadable tools that make "websites" or at least customizable, interactive reports from Excel spreadsheets, data, and calculations.
I'm yet to find this an abundance of examples of this. Are there? If so, what do you call them? [more inside]

I'm trying to track down any information about an old website that's been offline for years. I believe it was called 'Ask the Gurus'.

Karsh from Chrono Cross was probably the most frequently used avatar by the site's author, but many other characters showed up too. [more inside]
