Is there anywhere decent to look for freelance web work?

I'm a frontend web developer with quite a long resume. I work full-time but I'd like to pick up some freelance, remote work in my spare time. I'm wondering if there are any places to look besides my personal network, Craigslist, and those awful "Rent-a-coder" sites where you get underbid by overseas folks who'll do it for $9/hr.

How to solve a complex statistics problem with a script?

In this game, you roll a number of six-sided dice to get a total. The total is either the highest single die result, or the sum of any multiples rolled, whichever is higher. For example: If I roll three dice and get a 3, 4, and 6, my total is 6. But if I roll a 4, 4, and 6, my total is 8, the sum of the two 4s. What I want to find out is the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation of the possible totals given N dice. How might I create a simple script to compute this? [more inside]

speeding up facebook

Are there any tools for blocking out useless & slow "features" on facebook? I'm unsure the last time I actually appreciated any facebook popup. In particular, I've no need for facebook's toolbar because Adium and my N900 log into facebook's chat directly. Bonus if it'll work under MicroB on a Nokia N900. [more inside]

Firefox image resizing driving me mad

FireFox filter. This is driving me mad. My website has a little JavaScript (inside) to drag in a random image. Each image is 150 wide (varying heights). IE displays them fine. Firefox 1.0 resizes certain images. Anyone know why? [more inside]

Firefox customization

Firefox question. Unmodified, just-installed firefox opens a new tab behind the current tab, instead of on top as Mozilla does; and the right-click popup menu for tabs does not have "close this tab" first in the list, as in Mozilla. Are these two behaviors customizable? I know I'm being lazy but these two misfeatures are deal-killers for me. If you knowledgeable firefox users tell me they're fixable in userChrome.css or users.js or whatever I promise I'll rtfm-rtfm-rtfm and become as rabid a firefox zealot as you might desire. But if they're not changeable then it's all wasted effort and I'll stay with Mozilla (or whatever they're calling it this week.) Thanks!

How to make collapsible lists on a webpage?

Because I only know pidgin HTML, I'm not sure if what I'm about to ask is Web Design 101 or Web Design 665, but: If I want to have a collapsible list, such that if someone clicked on "Words that start with B" in the following:

Words that start with A
Words that start with B
Words that start with C

the page would then reformat to show

Words that start with A
Words that start with B
balustrade
brickbat
bumptious
Words that start with C

without the whole page having to reload. Can someone please point me to a resource or study-able example?
