I missed the women's semi-finals of the U.S. Open tonight, and would like to watch it on my computer, if possible. Does anyone know how I can do this? I looked on the usopen.org site, but I didn't see anything.

how do I minimize the number of applications I use, while still keeping my organization online? Over the past year, I have been trying to go fully paperless, and web-based. This meant migrating from Outlook to Gmail, Gcal, etc. However, now I am drowning in apps. I have Wesabe for finances, Google for calendar and mail, Todoist for todo lists, WeightWatchers app to track my food, another app to track my workouts. Is there any way around that? Unfortunately, I am finding that an app meant solely for a specific task work better than an all in one solution... Has anyone figured out the best way? Help!

My cousin in New Hampshire wants to collaborate on music with me. I'm in Seattle.
I'd like to figure out a convenient way for us to pass large .wav files to each other. I can pull his completed rock songs into a multitracking program and create vocal tracks - then I need to pass the vocal tracks back to him in the form of .wav files so he can add them to the mix on his end.
I know there are web based file storage sites, and I can randomly try some out, but I thought I'd start with the hive mind:
Can anyone recommend a service like this? I'm thinking free, uncomplicated and capable of handling large file sizes.
The files don't need to live there for a long time - just a reasonable window of time to pass them back and forth. Have any of you done this kind of thing?

If you do a search for my company’s website on Google, one of the top hits is a page at Quantcast.com that purports to display “visitor statistics” for our domain. These statistics are wildly inaccurate by orders of magnitude and make it look as though our site gets only a tiny percentage as many visitors as it actually does. What’s more, there are all kinds of demographic charts and info, purportedly about our site, that don’t seem to have any connection to reality whatsoever. How do I get them to stop misrepresenting us? [more inside]

My company is looking at adding a "chat with tech support online" feature from our support website. I have dug around on the intertubes and found a lot of marketing material, but would like to know if any folks here have experience with implementing that kind of product and are willing to make recommendations.
Our Requirements are fairly simple: It has to be hosted on site (so no external providers), and has to integrate with IIS. Any suggestions?

I'd like to build a Web site that: asks users 50 specific yes/no questions, tallies their answers and then spits out a percentage answer at the end of the quiz.
Are there any platforms/services out there (sort of like what Ning
provides for social networks) that would help me build a test to share with my co-workers?
The purpose my test is to help the test-taker to assess threats.
Sample questions might include, 1.) Did the caller sound angry? 2.) Does the caller have a history of making threats? 3.) etc... I would want people to be able to go to this site and take the test over and over again if needed.
Bonus points if:
1.) The importance of individual questions can be weighted differently,
2.) The test can be password protected,
3.) The platform let's me point a URL to my test, and
4.) The platform lets me add a logo / design elements to my test.
Does such a platform exist? Thanks for your help MeFi!
