What's a good Wordpress Advertising plugin that is lite on coding?

WordPress plugin filter: is there a plugin that does this?

So a friend of mine wrote a book, and he's promoting it via his website. He's also enabled buyers of the book to read the book online - a system which I actually prefer to use instead of the PDF. He hired someone to do the technical lifting, but I've GOT to believe there's a WordPress plugin that does something similar...? I have a book of my own, naturally. [more inside]

How do I allow people to add calendar events with wordpress

I am launching a local performing arts blog with Wordpress as the frontend, and I want to set it up in a way that allows event promoters and performers to easily add events to a calendar. Having the people need to set up an account with a username and password seems prudent, but I'd like it to be as simple as possible. Perhaps logging in with google or facebook if possible. What are my best options vis a vis plugins/widgets/action plans? Thank you in advance.

Internet explorer development

I've got some JavaScript I want to turn into an extension (plug-in?) so it will always run for certain webpages for Internet Explorer, but because I've been using Chrome/Firefox for years, I don't know what search terms to use.

Win iTunes plugins to have?

There seem to be some interesting plugins for doing tedious library management chores (like say, TuneUp or TidySongs). Googling produces tons of non-reviews reviews and noise, and I don't feel like messing my stuff (and time) with lots of try-and-see's, not to mention you have to pay for them (yes, I'm ok with paying for a couple of these things if they are worth it but not just to experiment). So if you're so kind to share, tell me your personal experience and recommendations for iTunes plugins, for Windows. If your experience if s of something so vile I should run away from it, do tell too!

Image uploader plugins for Movable Type

Does anyone know a good image uploader plugin for Movable Type that does exactly what the built in image uploader does in Typepad? (in Typepad, when you insert an image in a post, the image code is inserted for you into the entry, and you can upload multiple images and Typepad continues to insert the image code for each image uploaded into the single entry). I have tried NetPBM, but it only shows the html for the pop up thumbnail image, it doesn't insert the code into the entry for you. Tips and references on customizing NetPBM are also welcome. thanks a lot!
