There's a site somewhere that archives a ton of news video from 9/11 -- before, during and after the planes hit. It's network news, CNN, that kind of stuff. Anyone know where that site is?

GmailFilter: I am having a hard time keeping my gmail inbox down to manageable numbers. I want to do something very specific. Is it possible to set gmail to automatically archive all read messages? That way my inbox stays clear and I don't have to remember to constantly click the archive button after reading a message.

I'm embarking on the task of archiving my family's collection of several thousand images, from prints, negatives of all sizes, slides and the odd tinplate. I've got what I feel is a good film/slide scanner (Nikon SuperCoolscan 9000 ED) and a half-decent flatbed scanner (Epson Perfection 1650 Photo), and I'm using VueScan on Mac OS X. I've read some of the other AskMeFi posts on similar projects, and I still have three questions about advice for making these the best digital archives they can be, specifically on colorspace, calibration and large negatives (and any other advice welcome): [more inside]

I've got a website which is generated by Blogger, featuring articles I've written. My problem is that it seems that Blogger's maximum archive period is a month. As I only write 1 or 2 (or sometimes 0) things per month that I want to put up, the monthly archive doesn't really work; I really need an annual archive thing. Can anyone suggest a way that I can get round this? Do any other blogging services support this? I'd hate to have to investigate the murky world of Movable Type, but I'd rather do that than leave things as they are at the moment. [more inside]

fails: I'd like to research the development of news websites - specifically those established by traditional media companies (CNN, The New York Times, etc). While archive.org is a valuable resource, many of the sites I'd like to look at block the automated scripts (robots) that make archiving possible. What's more, some of the sites archived are woefully incomplete and are missing images, etc. Is there an alternative to archive.org or another resource that I might use? [more inside]

Does anyone have any good picture/file archiving software? Specifically, I'm looking for a Windows or linux program that will do the following:
1) Support full and differential or incremental backups of directories (i.e.: just the ones that have changed since the last backup or the first backup).
2) Burn both CDs and DVDs (not using other packet-writing software).
3) Create normally readable, uncompressed discs (not blob files that can only be read by the same program).
4) Preferably, include an html preview of the whole backup set on each disc.
Basically, I think I'm looking for the exact feature set of Archive Creator
, but with incremental backups or "all files created since" features, which it does not seem to do.

How can I browse
a .rar file using OS X? I've tried UnRarX, I've tried StuffIt Deluxe 8.0.2, and I've tried searching google for anything else that might work, with no luck. I need this feature because I want to access one small file in the archive, but don't have enough room on my hard drive to unrar the whole thing.

I need to set up a database-driven document archive of mostly text files and links. I want the archive to have a tree structure and allow the public to browse it without logging in. I want each file to have a description. I prefer PHP or Perl and need to use it on a shared hosting account. I would think something open source like this would be out there, but I can't find it. Any advice?

Eudora has been my email client since, oh, 1994. I now have several hundred megabytes of mail. It's disappointing that Eudora doesn't have an "archiving" feature like Outlook. Does anyone know of a utility that's up to the task? Doing with manually with over 35 folders is painful.

Library/information science question(s): My code-fearful friend succeeded in getting through library school without exposure to more than basic HTML. I now have him on a diet of Dreamweaver and XHTML, with a sprinkling of GoLive. He's wondering about next steps: for someone who wants to be well-equipped to work in an academic, medical, legal, or similar library or archive (with web development as part of his job, rather than the focus of it), what scripting language(s) and/or content-management systems are most important to learn? Is the library world fragmented in this regard, or is there a dominant technology? What would be a logical entry vector into this world for someone without a comp-sci bone in his body (in terms of languages/systems, and specific learning resources)?[no more inside]
