Need recommendations a custom (?) online video/image portal

I work for an advertising company that sells very high profile ad locations.

Help me crowdsource an archival project for my public radio show.

I am trying to create a search-able, browse-able archive for the public radio show I work for.

How do I open a TwinLock Crown binder?

I have a TwinLock Crown binder made in the UK dating from 1950. I would very much like to open it, remove the pages, scan them, and replace them. However, although it looks like it can be opened, the binding mechanism is entirely obscured by the binding itself. There is a metal tab at the top near the front, but it doesn't seem to move, and I'm hesitant to put pressure on it since I don't know in what direction that pressure should be applied, and I'd rather leave it closed than break it. How can I do this; is it even possible? [more inside]

How to scan a notebook's blue gridlines?

I draw and write with a variety of black pens in a Rhodia Reverse notebook. The notebook's paper is gridded with thin bluish lines, which I appreciate to help with ruling, etc., and because I like how the grid pattern looks with my drawings. I'd like to scan the notebook for safekeeping, but find that my scanner will only pick up a fraction of the gridding. I don't know if the gridlines are a true photo blue, but is there any way to ensure that my scans will match how I see the pages? I'm using an Epson Perfection 1660 Photo scanner.

Mac unzip/unrar software with preview?

I'd like to be able to preview those files first, and perhaps selectively extract, or not extract at all.
