i have an enormous chest and it's very heavy.
it's wood. i made it myself. it's about 1.5 metres squared and one metre high. i use it to store "stuff" in and i want to put casters on it, but not significantly increase its height.
the problem is that all the casters or wheels that would take the kind of weight of the chest are gi frickin' normous.
all the casters/wheels i've seen with a lower profile have quite low weight restrictions.
can i just put heaps more small casters on the box or do i have to put the huge casters on that fit the overall weight of my chest?
i believe the chest weighs in the vicinity of about 100kilograms.... and when you fill it with all the stuff i keep in it.... maybe 150-200 kilograms.
help me before i set fire to it in frustration.... my physics, like gravity, sucks.

1 is more common than 2? Help me find a recent article that talks about "data" having a tendency to start with 1. [more inside]

Digital Distribution Filter: It seems that the video on the internet can be put in two groups - the DIY (low production value) and the "produced" (iTunes, etc.) content. I'm pretty sure DIY content producers don't make any $, whereis "produced" content always needs to recoup. What kind of deals do iTunes or AtomFilms make for independently "produced" short film content, e.g. how much of that $1.99 does Apple keep? [more inside]

I have a relatively bold, and quite possibly extremely idiotic, idea for a website. [more inside]

I've noticed that most newspaper comic pages are horrendous. What would it take to publish my favorite web / underground comics in a newspaper-like format, and distribute it across my metro area of choice?
