GMail: Blocking abusers by IP address?

I'm working with someone (outside of the US) who is getting a series of harassing emails to her GMail account. The abuser is sending from a number of addresses, and is thus hard to identify or block by account. Is there a way to get GMail to block mail by IP address? Filters don't seem to do it, and I doubt reporting the abuse to Google will get a response. Other solutions would also be appreciated (yes, I am talking to her about potentially using other services). Thanks!

HEPA filter to keep neighbors second hand smoke out?

My neighbor smokes at all hours of the day and night. We don't have an AC and have to have our windows open at night in the summers, with a fan pointed out one window, drawing his smoke in the other while we try to sleep. It bothers me and my wife a lot. Wakes us up coughing dry throat. He won't stop, we asked nicely. Are there any sort of filters we can use as a screen that will make any difference? I think it's cigars.

Need to create locally-hosted, searchable database of vendors--help!

I maintain for my company a spreadsheet that contains a list of vendors and their associated information: address, contact(s), service area(s), service(s), website, and so on. It's becoming rather unwieldy as a vendor might have up to 5 different services, 2 addresses, 3 contacts each with their own email and phone number, etc. The information's all there, it's just very annoying to use. I had the idea of creating an "intranet" type website that staff could use to filter vendors by name, service area, service type, and so on, with the results displaying in an easy-to-read format (easier than a mile-long Excel sheet, anyway). I am open to solutions like Wordpress and Joomla, just not sure how best to implement. Any ideas? [more inside]

My coffee and water would taste better without chemicals and plastic...

I want to: 1) Try to cut plastic out of my life, at least in coming into contact with beverages I consume. 2) Get my own coffeemaker for my house that doesn't have plastic. 3) Find a solution for drinking water that a) doesn't come in plastic or b) is filtered properly. My city has elevated levels of hexavalent chromium (or chromium 6, the stuff from Erin Brockovich) and Pur faucet filters or even Brita pitchers can't filter that out. [more inside]

Help me stop itching. I'm allergic to cats or water!

I regularly experience itching while at home, primarily on my shins, hips and lower back. I think I'm allergic to something in my water. I've long thought this was caused by soap as showers are when the itching is at it's worst, but after trial and error I've concluded that water is the cause. I've come to this conclusion by using a filter on my shower head which removes the problem after a few weeks. The problem is the showerhead with filter has caused many plumbing problems due to the reduced water pressure, so I'm back to the regular shower head. Is there another way to filter the water without causing plumbing problems, such as at the water heater itself? If not the water, could cats be the cause? [more inside]

Baby Sucked Down the Snot Sucker

Your child ate what? I'm fairly certain that Baby Tafetta swallowed herself one of the filters from the Nosefrida Snot Sucker this evening. The blue filter consists of moisture absorbing polyurethane. I tried unsuccessfully to sweep out her mouth a couple of times but found nothing. She was otherwise fine and finished her bottle before going to sleep. [more inside]

Dating (and friendship): Screening for reliability

How do you screen for reliability and filter out self-centered/selfish nature in dating in real life and online dating? And, how do you find out whether a person (for dating or friendship) is a 'giver' or a 'taker'? By reliability and being a giver, I don't mean something as trivial as calling when they say they will. I mean more like being there for you when you are going through one or more major challenging life events, putting the relationship and "us" before individual interests especially when the going gets rough for you and not for them individually. Does this kind of reliability even exist among partners and can one really, truly, deeply trust another human being or do you feel you always have to watch your back even with a partner of months or years or decades?

Starbucks water at home

1. How exactly does Starbucks treat their water? I've seen references to "famous triple-filtered" and "reverse osmosis" but nothing definitive or comprehensive. 2. Can this process be duplicated at home? If so, how? 3. Objectively, how is water that has gone through that process different from tap water or bottled water? 4. Subjectively, how would you describe the taste and mouthfeel if you wanted to say that I want water that is.... To me it feels both cleaner and more minerally, somehow fuller, maybe more alkaline?

Is it a fool's game to travel to D.C. right before the election?

Travel filter regarding D.C., near election time...Has anyone ever traveled to D.C. say a week or two before the election? Mrs. Nash and I are headed to a wedding in Charlottesville the weekend of 10/27, and thought we'd make a short vacation trip down to D.C. before the wedding, but hotel prices seem to skyrocket in mid to late October, which got me thinking that there are probably all kinds of political types headed to the area in the two or three weeks leading up to the election on 11/4. Has anyone ever visited D.C. during this timeframe? If so, what was your experience like? Was it insane and best tackled on another trip?

Filter blues.

Need to change an Everpure H-300-HSD filter cartridge. The model number on the cartridge is 9720-75. How important is this number? Ordering direct from the Everpure site seems to get me a generic 300-HSD filter, and I'm finding -74 and -76 and -72 and so on models with a price difference of twenty+ dollars on other sites such as Amazon. If I'm off a number is that likely to not work at all?

A content filter that warns and reports instead of blocking?

The Windows Live Family Safety content filter has a neat optional feature: instead of completely blocking a web page that might be inappropriate, it can display a warning that the user can then click through to visit the site if they really need to, and then a notification is sent to the parent or admin that they clicked through the warning to get to the site. Is there a similar system available for Mac OS? [more inside]

Need help patching a Korg MS-2000

I usually gig locally with a Moog Voyager as my primary synth, but the band is going on a small tour and — though I have a nice ATA case — I have some reservations about taking such an expensive piece of kit on an extended road trip. I have a Korg MS-2000 synth kicking around the house that I am thinking about touring with instead – it's lighter, smaller, and a million times more expendable. Trouble is, I'm having a bit of a hard time getting good, fat, Moog-like sounds out of it. [more inside]
