Help me search Craigslist Housing More Efficienctly

I am currently searching for housing on Craigslist and have found some really good places and gotten good responses from them.

Looking for a relational wiki for documentation.

Greetings hive mind! This seems to be something that should already exist, but I think I either haven't found the right type of wiki, or have looked over the feature in one of the many wikis I've tried. Basically, I'm looking to use a wiki for IT documentation purposes...but I'd also like for it to be able to automatically propagate views/pages in a relational manner (either via the backend or via templates). Here's an example to help illustrate: [more inside]

Teaching resources about racial concepts: their biological validity and various cultural expressions

I need teaching resources about race: the biology of human "races"; why "race" is not biological but social; how racial categories have shifted over time and place; and related questions on teaching about race? This is as a supplement to reading The Mismeasure of Man in a university "Critical Thinking" class.

Combine "Contact Us" and "Locations"

I'm paring down categories on a website and I'm looking for a single phrase that can be used to replace "Contact Us" and "Locations." The info on each page is too similar, so I'd like to create a single page with contact info and location maps. It's for a medical practice with two offices. Limitation: around 12-15 letters maximum, to match the other categories and stay within the limitations of the menu. Thanks!

Free online blog host that allows post categorization?

Is there a free (some ads okay) online bloghosting service that allows you to categorize posts? For example, could I post something, categorize as "school," and then on the side of the page have a list of categories so I could click there and access those posts quickly?

blogthing seems to do it, but are not accepting new accounts presently. It seems to me that MovableType can do this, but I am awful at learning how to use such things properly.
