I'd like to get more into freelance copywriting. It's something I can do from home, and I'm pretty good at it. I have a money and time goal for it.
Money: 5 cents a word
Time: 15 hours a week
Total: About $1,500 a month.
I'm on Textbroker, but they rarely pay more than 1.5 cents a word. I'm open to pay-by-project too, if they're consistent. How would I go about finding regular clients/websites that could help me reach my goal?

I am trying to find the comforter or duvet cover seen in "How I Met Your Mother" in Lily and Marshall's guest room. First appearing in the episode "Karma" and again in "Burning Beekeeper" it is white with a soft lavender and grey abstract leaf pattern. I've been google searching religiously for about four months. If anyone can help me or knows the pattern and where it comes from, I will be so grateful. Thank you. Here is a link to a pic from the episode "Karma"

I am a woman. A man I have a court-ordered PFA (Protection From Abuse) against started a blogspot.com page about me using MYNAME.blogspot.com to write viscous lies about me and my underage son. The blogspot page is, of course, the #1 result on google when googling my name. He is not impersonating me, but he is harassing me and my family. What can I do now? [more inside]

I need famous drinks from famous books. Kind of like how Holden Caulfield always drank Tom Collinses in Catcher in the Rye.
Or how the Famous Five always had Tea with their scones. Thanks!

When I try to create a tab using Filemaker Pro 8.0v2 on my Mac (OS version 10.4.11), it displays correctly in "edit" mode. But when I enter data-entry mode, FM "sees through" the tab - and displays all fields (from all the tabs) stacked on top of one another. Clicking the other tabs, I see the same thing - all fields stacked. [more inside]

(Two part question: part 1 – help me find a reference, part 2 – am I crazy?)
I know I have read somewhere that on rare occasions fish and frogs can be dragged from their watery residences by waterspouts and deposited miles away. There are many references on the web referring to this type of phenomena, but there is a particularly extreme example which I seek… [more inside]

OK I am arriving in LAX (and the US) for the first time *ever* on a Sunday morning next month. Once I pick up my rental car I am headed out to the Howard Johnson at Anaheim. This would not be so stressful if it weren't the first time that I will drive a car with the steering wheel on the other side (I am from Australia, we drive on the left here). What tips can anyone give me on a) how to successfully navigate from LAX to Anaheim, and b) driving on the "other" side of the road? Thanks heaps :-)

What coping strategies will help me deal with a new boss (on a much-needed temporary job) who is admittedly "anal rententive." She is anxious, rude, insecure, demanding, disparaging of my judgement and predicts my ultimate failure.
If I didn't need the money so much I'd move on, but I want to keep this job. It's not a career move, just a matter of income. How can I manage and tolerate her and or cope with what seems to be a difficult situation? TIA

I am looking for a way to monitor a few servers - HTTP, POP, SMTP from the Internet and receive an email when a service goes down. Is there a free service? Or perhaps a simple script. I do not want to install Big Brother.

Both at work and at home, I occasionally get spam where the return address is my own. I'm guessing spammers mine for valid email addies to make their messages appear more legit, but it still kind of bothers me that spam is going out under my name. Should I be worried about this, or is it just a case of harmless techno-stress? Is there a fairly simple way of preventing this?
