Please help me set up some Access forms.

I have two questions about setting up MS Access forms: 1) Currently, I have a form to enter the volunteer id, shift start time and shift stop time, but the client doesn't want to have to look up the id in a report. Is there a way to create a selection list from the volunteer's names? What other options are there? 2) On the "add/edit a volunteer" form, I'd like to be able to choose tasks from a selection list. The tasks table has id and name. The "tasks of volunteers" join table has volunteer id and task id. How do I set this up? I can't seem to get the right combination of configurations. [more inside]

How do I see subfolders in an inbox I have delegate access to in Outlook?

My nice boss has tried to make everyone's life easier by putting work she wants us to do in subfolders with our names on them, in her inbox. We all have delegate read access to her inbox but can't see the subfolders when we go to it. What permissions does she need to set us (or what else does she have to do) in order for us to see the subfolders?

How do I replace a Visual Basic 6 runtime file killed by a Windows security update?

A Visual Basic 6 (ugh) runtime file distributed with our internal Access database has been killed by a recent Windows security update. It's hard to gather support information (especially since VB6 is about 8.7 million years old) and so I was wondering if anyone out there can help me track down a more recent copy of the runtime file in question—msflxgrd.ocx—or otherwise fix the problem?

Is this computer a doorstop?

Dell Optiplex 170, XP Home SP2, Out of Warantee, no recover disk, no way of making one. This was bought a while ago for use as basic internet access. Sat in a corner unused for a long while. Loaded AVG Free and Zonealarm via dialup for anticipated use on cable internet. AVG installation balked. Had cable installed. The Comcast installer could hold the connection with this unit for less than a minute before it dropped. The connection is stable with both the installers laptop and my SOs work laptop. I removed all personally installed software. AVG and Zonealarm could not be removed. Goback would only go as far as the probable install date of AVG. I get a corrupt install message with both uninstalls. The latest Windows Installer Cleanup tool did not help. Any suggestions in how to ressurect this beast? Is reformatting and loading Ubuntu my only option?

Dream Job --> Dream Career

I have a really cool job: I help low-income/minority students get into college.
(It's perfect for me because I'm passionate about educational access and I get to work with young people one-on-one, but I'm not tied down to a classroom.)
Right now, my job is short-term, a la Teach for America, but I'd like to stay in the educational field and turn this job into a long-term career.

My question is two fold: How do I go about finding jobs like this and what sort of educational credentials/degrees do I need to qualify for these jobs? [more inside]

Cheapest/Best solution for remote file access?

I have a three person Mac OS X office where we need to have remote access to about 4GB of files. I have looked around extensively for a solution and so far have not found an acceptable one. We have tried to use Back to my Mac and Apple Remote Desktop but the other two users are not that technically adept and it seem too complicated for them. Out problem is further complicated by the fact that we sometimes access the same files, so we can have version problems as well. Back to my Mac has never worked period. Could I use Amazon S3 storage? And manage with Subversion or Git? Are there reasonable clients for Subversion and Git. Drobo with network card seem over the top and too costly. Having the files on the cloud would be a perfect solution, however a local solution that could be accessed from anywhere will work as well. To further complicate we are thinking of having one person access via PC.
