We've got a low-pitched copper roof. We had a big problem with ice dams last year and want to try the "ice-melt in pantyhose" thing. But what kind of ice melt? [more inside]
I have an ice dam on my roof, on a high dormer I can't reach (or really rake very well, but I'm going to give it another go!). The thing is, though, everyone on my block has ice dams, many that are proud and terrible cataracts of frozen majesty that put my small ice dam to shame. But no one seems to be doing anything about it. What gives? [more inside]
What experiences have you had with big (a.k.a. "enterprise") digital asset management systems? Good or bad, I want to know it all. [more inside]
My friend theorizes that a miniaturized dam, which he calls "The Waterboy", would be a great form of alternative energy and wanted to get feedback on whether this idea would actually work. This document he drafted up describes The Waterboy further and includes calculations.
I'm helping a close friend figure out a digital asset management solution for his small media company. They have five employees, but they do all kinds of media projects for clients, some of them large. They've done websites, videos, printed publications, etc. This generates a lot of data, and their having a hard time managing it. [more inside]
As an aspiring artist, I've recently acquired a habit of saving to Dropbox every image I find particularly inspiring or useful as an artistic reference. This is fun and motivating, except I'm realizing that my Finder-based 'folder > subfolder' organizational structure is doing a poor job of keeping up with my needs. I'm looking for software recommendations (Mac OS X) or general tips re: sorting a frequently-accessed image collection that will eventually number into the thousands. The catch: the system needs to sync with an iPhone/iPad. [more inside]
What are some of the best digital asset managment tools available? I am hoping to find at least a couple who can handle large video files well, but also any other digital assets that might have been created
I have a couple hundred thousand digital photos. I have a bunch of duplicate images from overlapping backups. I have inconsistent naming and folder schemes. I have edited and cropped versions of the same image. I need some software to help me clean and sort my images. [more inside]
I'd like to get serious about organizing my own video clips and project assets, but can't find a good digital asset manager to do it. [more inside]
I am trying to establish a good backup strategy for my digital media assets (photos, music, and some home videos) and documents. Would love to hear from you on on whether this makes sense ... [more inside]
What are good resources for researching and evaluating enterprise web content management and digital asset management systems?
Is going whitewater rafting on a dam-release day on the Lehigh River in May significantly better than going on a non-dam-release day the last week of April? [more inside]
Professors, researchers, teachers: How do you organize your files on hard disks and with physical folders? [more inside]
Where can I find an old US government document? I found a reference to it in the June 1912 Monthly Catalogue of United States Public Documents: Sabath, A. J. Report amending by substitute H. 23284, to authorize Great Northern Development Company to construct dam across Missisippi River from Scott Countv, Iowa, to Rock Island Countv, 111. June 14, 1912. 3 p. (H. rp. 891.)
Name this song: Chinese (I assume) singers singing in English singing praises about the Three Gorges Dam. I heard it in an Asian restaurant about 6-8 years ago. [more inside]
Power generation: Let's say we have a hydroelectric dam. My understanding is that water turns a dynamo, which provides electricty. It seems like there would be a way to use the same water flow more than once. Could we make raceways of some indeterminate length to get the water back up to speed with sufficient force to turn a second dynamo? Could this be repeated so that a single water flow powers some n dynamos? What kind of constraints keep dams all over the world from doing this sort of thing?
Digital Asset Management. I'm looking for a web based solution that archives and stores files, but I don't need full on project management. [more inside]
Help me find an online document management system / digital asset management system. [more inside]
Anybody know the name of the $49 helicopter place south of the hoover dam on the 93? When you leave Las Vegas going south, there is a hotel and casino off to the left after you pass through the hoover dam. There is a big sign that says $49 helicopter flights. Either that hotel has helicopter tours, or their neighbor is a helicopter place. Anybody know what it's called? (The hotel or the tour place)
