Best practices for software development documentation

I do some developery-type stuff at work and the more complicated it gets, the less organized I am. I often find myself wondering why I did this or that or what I was trying to accomplish with it. I reuse a lot of the same functions and bits of code but I don't have a good system of keeping track of them. I know about commenting within code, and I do that, but I'm looking for a larger system of general best practices more than a specific solution. [more inside]

Newbie to MS Access deleted something essential. HELP!

[MSAccess Filter] HELP! I have been thrust into Access with no understanding of how it works beyond a 10-minute "use this" and "do that" session.

Why is MS Access coloring all my text fields grey?

Working on an MS Access 2000 record-browsing form; the text fields all display as dark grey text on light grey background, no matter what colors or transparency are specified in the design. I've never seen this before. I've been running in circles for 2 hours. What am I missing?

Cross-Platform Flash-Based Solution for Files from CDROM to Local HD?

Does anyone have a good solution for copying files (say... image files) from a CDROM to a user's local disk using a Flash interface (and any appropriate add-on)? It should be cross-platform happy, and specifically able to be developed on the Mac.
