Do wild honey bee colonies ever move into an abandoned hive?

Not far from where I live is/was a wild bee colony in a living but semi-hollowed tree, and I've been observing this colony for a number of years as an amateur naturalist. About three years ago I noticed that the hive seemed empty from winter to winter, and I suspected it was a victim of CCD, but then the next two years after that the colony was back and seemed to thrive. Well, I stopped by this weekend and I find the hive seems abandoned, even after I saw activity earlier this year. I'm not assuming the colony collapsed, but I'm wondering if when it disappeared three years ago, was what I saw the years after that the same hive, or did a new colony move or grow there? Do wild colonies ever recolonize the hive of a previous colony? [more inside]

Is this a good time to see migrating birds in Milwaukee? If so, where?

I’m heading to the Milwaukee airport tomorrow, but my flight isn’t till the evening. Somewhere I read about a spot by Lake Michigan that was a good place to see migrating birds. Now I can’t find that article. Is this even the right time of year? If so, where should I go?

Mac->Windows migration for a small office: tips and suggestions?

I've been the all-around IT guy for a small office of 30 for a few years now. We've been primarily a Mac shop this whole time, but new business requirements mean that we'll probably be buying more windows machines going forward. I've been tasked with a pilot program to migrate 1/3 of our office over this year, with the assumption we'll bring everyone else over next year. Details inside: [more inside]

What's the best way to migrate from local to IMAP in Thunderbird?

I need to migrate about 5gb+ of email from the local folders in Thunderbird to IMAP in Thunderbird. There are a lot of folders and a lot of subfolders, and migrating them "manually" has really been a pain in the ass. I've got about a third of the folders over, but I'd love to hear a better solution that will actually keep the folder structure in place correctly, not randomly. Perhaps there's an add-on for this? Cheers.

Migrating WordPress Blog to Tumblr

I have a self-hosted WordPress blog in which every post is an image (with alt-text) and a single comment. I'd like to move this material over to a Tumblr blog. The site has two years' worth of material, with about three posts per week. I've done a Google search and it seems there are three methods for migrating WordPress content to Tumblr. All involve exporting the WordPress Blog to XML first, which I've done. [more inside]

migrated mac either boots flawlessly or not at all

Macfilter: I have an iMac G5 with osx 10.3.9 that would fail soon after startup because of bad capacitors. I ordered a used replacement running osx 10.5, which booted up fine (the first time) and I was able to transfer all my files and programs from old to newish using target disk mode and migration assistant. After migration the programs worked but when I tried to reboot the new(er) iMac would power down immediately after or sometimes during the initial start. Nothing is displayed. About one in 15 tries boots up normally. I'll try the hardware test the next time I get it to boot, but this problem seems unlike others i have read about. Any ideas?

Could a large influx of culturally-similar refugees help save Detroit?

St. Louis, Missouri lost over half its population from 1950-1990. Since the mid-1990s, 80,000 Bosnian immigrants (coming to represent over 20% of the city's population) have established communities that have saved large areas of housing stock from decay. In which other instances have large, permanent groups of non-migrant, non-domestically employed immigrants been settled en masse helping to shore-up a city that is losing population but otherwise has the infrastructure to accommodate more? Has there been any debate or discussion about hypothetical proposals to encourage something similar in Detroit? [more inside]
