Database lookup tables...one per relationship or a general lookup table? [more inside]
How would I find a function that transforms random variables from an non-normal probability distribution to a normal distribution? [more inside]
Is there any way to normalize the volume output on my PC so I'm not startled by clicking on a video link? The volume on YouTube and other sites varies so wildly from video to video that my modus operandi is to mute before I play the video, then slowly increase the volume, but I'm hoping there is a better way.
Recommend me software, preferably free or cheap, so that I can permanently normalize and clip about 200 mp3s. [more inside]

Can you help me be a better home recording engineer? I've posted some things to MuFi which were pretty fun, but are technically suck-tronic. [more inside]
MySQL/PHPmyAdmin for a band: How do I easily create a repository of lyrics that can be brought in for multiple albums? [more inside]
DBAs: Is this a case where I *should not* normalize my database? (PHP/MySQL 4.0.24 question). Long explanation of the situation inside. [more inside]
I have a client database with about 200K records in it. Addresses were fed in by a variety of people so there're tons of typos/missing information and not much in the way of standardization. I need to do some postal processing (CASS, DSF2, LACS and NCOA) on the file. Is that something that's mostly done in software and so could be done in-house, or does it require a lot of specialized human intervention and so something that it makes more sense to outsource? If it can be done in-house, where would I look for software to do it? If it should be outsourced, what should I expect to pay for a file with 200K records?
I'm mixing an album and I want all tracks to have the same apparent loudness. [that noise comes from inside] [more inside]
WinAmpFilter: The constant variation between too loud and too quiet is killing me. Which WinAmp plug-ins for volume normalization do you recommend? Yes, I know iTunes does it well, but iTunes doesn't play nice when I have a couple of other programs open.
