Where should an aspiring indie Mac developer and his family move: SF Bay Area or Seattle (or Other)?

My wife and two kids and I are not able to renew the lease on the house we're renting in a Maryland suburb of DC (the landlord is selling his other house and moving back into this one), so we're looking to move at the end of August. I've also been contemplating a career change for a while, and as this "opportunity" has dropped in our lap, we're thinking about making a city change as well, that would benefit my intended Mac development career, possibly to the SF Bay Area or Seattle.

Need a cheap way to send a single pencil to someone.

What is the cheapest way to mail a single pencil to someone? I'm talking US domestic to US domestic address. An ideal solution wouldn't require a trip to the post office (although the first one I send probably would be through a desk clerk to make sure it's ok). I want something I could stick in my mail box as the need arises. Looking for suggestions for packaging material as well as postage. [more inside]

Hows does my package get delivered in China?

I sent a package to Beijing today. I addressed it in English, and I assume that somewhere along the line the address gets translated into Chinese script so that the delivery person on the ground knows where to take it. Does anyone know how this process works?

Proper GET/POST Design for Deleting Items on a Web Page

I'm designing a webpage that will have a list of items and each item can be deleted. I was thinking to have the delete command be link to a URL that does the delete when called. But then I realized maybe that isn't safe since a spider following links might cause things to be deleted. What is the proper design for this type of thing?

For that fake personalised card touch

I need to send a birthday card to a US friend by Dec 23rd. Unfortunately, I've just missed the last post for transatlantic posts. I keep hearing of online services that'll post the card for me in the US - but can you suggest any? Also, any that allow me to "scan" in my handwriting for that personal touch get bonus points.

whither bulk mail on osx

A good friend of mine uses the application BULK MAILER+ to maintain an address list for an academic organization. He uses various flags in the notes field to sort addresses by membership year, indicate specific officers of the organization, whether or not they organize sessions at each year's annual meeting, etc. However, now he's on OSX and we're wondering if the only option is to run the app in Classic (Satori Software seems to have no intention of creating an OSX version) - or is there something else he should be using?

Where is this post about a recording engineer's "real" stories about working on a major artist's album, which devolves into Spinal Tap-esque antics?

I know I must suck hard core, because I can't get the search engine to work, but does anyone remember where that MeFi post about a recording engineer's "real" stories about working on a major artist's album, which devolves into Spinal Tap-esque antics? I read a description of Metallica's new documentary, and it sounds almost exactly the same, so I wanted to read it again. I've put everything I could think of into the search engine, and have come up empty. Can anyone help me out?
