Help me create a craigslist type board for my company

I have been assigned to create a craigslist-like community board for my company's internal website. The basic idea is to have a place for 100+ employees to post classifieds, events, etc. The only problem is I have limited (no) web database knowledge or experience. Is there any kind of community board templates or software that can be easily set up?

Publicly available databases involving terrorism and war

After hearing this story on NPR this morning about the Harmony Database of al Qaeda correspondence, I began wondering what other public databases like this exist out there that are ripe for analysis and picking apart. I'm looking specifically for things like this related to the "War on Terrorism" and the Iraq War, but older stuff would be good too.

ColdFusion SQL Injection Attack Terror

ColdFusion MX 7 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005. There's a lot of unvalidated parameters in our CFQUERYs. But, I'm told that putting the parameters in single-quotes will prevent injection attacks, because of the way ColdFusion escapes single-quotes. Is this foolproof, or do I have to go in and validate everything with CFQUERYPARAM tags?

Really basic MS Access question

Forgive me for asking such an embarrassingly basic MS Access question. I have two voter lists. Each one has a list of voters, and each voter has a unique identifying number as well as some other fields. There are some voters who appear on both lists (having identical voter numbers on both lists) and some voters who appear on only one. I am only concerned with the voters who appear on both lists: how do I import some fields from one list to the other so that the unique identifying number for each voter is matched by that voter's data from the other list?

Access, Web-Style?

Rather continue to work with Microsoft Access, I'd love to move a few old databases I continue to maintain into a www database app, if one exists. I'd like something that feels Access-like, with the ability to structure queries and forms as Access does. I'd happily accept a script package that I can easily install and maintain on my own web server, or a full service. Is there such an Access corollary, either free or available for purchase?

Help moving broken Movable Type database to WordPress?

I have a personal blog running under Movable Type. I want to move to WordPress. I've exported the existing entries to a text file, so that's good. However, a couple years ago my previous MT install tanked (similar to this). I cannot access it. I have several years worth of posts that are stuck in a database that I can't get to. I've been gradually moving these by hand to my existing MT install, but that's a pain in the ass. Is there some automated way to crawl/scrape the existing HTML files in order to retrieve these "lost" entries? Some way to break back into a corrupt MT database? Some way to repair it? (The install is BerkelyDB-based.) [more inside]
