Kissing off floppies?

How do I get something other then a floppy drive to show up as the a: drive in Windows 2000? It could be a USB jump drive or a mapped drive, it doesn't matter so long as it's not a floppy.

How can I teach myself to shave?

I'm a 23-year-old guy who's never used a real razor to shave -- I've only ever used electrics. (Why? Because I'm a pussy and can't bear to think about cutting myself.) I've recently started to think that the electric shave is less than ideal, and that proper shaving would be a good life skill to have. Of course, it'd be a little awkward to ask Dad to show me how like everybody else, since I'm not thirteen and he's in another state. How can I teach myself to use a razor without causing myself grievous injury? What kind of razor gives me the smallest chance of cutting myself? Am I ridiculous for even asking about this?

Where can I find more in depth information on massage technique?

Most online sources for massage techniques are clearly aimed at someone from another planet who has never encountered laying hands on another being. "Try massage oil" or "light some candles." I'm looking for more intermediate information, primarily going towards anatomy and musculature. Which muscles groups should you work first? How do you progress to deeper and more persistent knots? What about connective tissue vs. muscles? Any sites or books you could recommend? My girlfriend thanks you in advance.

Image centering with CSS?

Following some googling, I've found a few sites that claim you can't use CSS to centre an image vertically within a div. Does this mean that I can't get the images on this page to float in the centre of their respective grey box? At the moment, they only seem to be postioned in the middle at the top of the box and even the middle bit is only because there is a text-align:center in there. (I don't mind If I have to lose the title of the image to get this to work)

Building paper hot air balloons

Loi Krathong” (Festival of Light) is taking place right now across Thailand, during which balloon-like ‘Khom Loi’ lanterns including the ‘Khom Fai’ – a fire lantern are released into the night sky. They're "air bags of various shapes" made of "Tracing paper or Sa paper."

Has anyone ever successfully built one of these? Are there any sites on the net that give some direction on how to go about doing so?

Book Binding

Book binding: I want to make some one-off children's books for my daughter and her friends, and I'm trying to determine the most cost-effective way to make something extra-durable. These kids are all about 2 years old; my own daughter has been known to rip pages out of favorite books as a sign of enthusiasm. My current thought is laminating two-sided color pages and spiral binding it, but to me that's only about a 6 out of 10 on cheapness and durability. Other thoughts?

how do I build web pages people can annotate

I want to create a website which visitors can "annotate" with something more than a simple commenting system. Basically, I'm looking for Flickr's photo annotation capabilities, but for html documents instead of jpegs. My instincts say this could be accomplished with some fancy CSS and javascript, but I would prefer not to start from scratch if something already exists. Any ideas?
