My father recently revealed that he got someone pregnant before he met my mother, some 35 years ago. He knew his biological daughter existed for a long time, and didn't tell anyone. Now my half-sister is looking to meet our family... [more inside]

I'm building a website in which part of the page remains static, and part of the page is swapped out using server side includes. Is there a way to do this that doesn't make the page jump up to the top when a link is clicked? [more inside]

Why do flatbed scanners seem to have so little dynamic range for sketches? I draw for fun, usually with a 0.5mm mechanical pencil. I do not put a lot of pressure onto the pen because it allows for more details/subtle shading.
When I scan the images, the "light" details are always blown out and no amount of fiddling xsane's settings (gamma, brightness, contrast) seems to reveal them.
Is there a trick I'm missing, or paper+scanner just really sucks and I should just use my tablet? Example scanned drawing
lacking much of the visual information that the eye can see on paper.
Scanners I have used over the years: HP ScanJet 3300C, Canon lide (briefly), and now a Brother MFC-5840CN.

Dynamic Advertising: How do I put it in an ebook?
I'd like to 1) put advertising that is
a) dynamic (and changeable from a script on my site) and
b) CPM (paid per exposure, rather than per action)
into 2) an ebook, either pdf or exe.
Any suggestions on the best way to do this? Thanks!

I want my life to be more "sensor-y" exciting. I could get a bunch of great art works (paintings and sculptures, say) but seeing them day in and day out my brain would filter them out. In a sense, I'm trying to make my apartment as much like being outdoors as possible, using technology. [more inside]

I want to setup a Windows 2003 server using my dynamic IP address that I have from Comcast. How can I make this happen? I have a linksys Gateway (WCG200) that has the server and a few other computers connected to it. I am trying to setup a small server for my printing/web hosting/file sharing/remote access needs. I need to see how to setup my DNS & DHCP settings for this to happen. Also I have my own domain name which I would like to use. Can I use programs from companies like no-ip.com to setup my web site so if anyone types my registered domain it will find my site? Remember that I will be using a dynamic address. Or the last straw is to get a static IP address. Where can I do so(for the cheapest price)?
