How can a willing to learn non-programmer build something like those user-supported gas price sites?

I'm looking to build a site that allows its users to submit and/or search pricing and availability information for "widgets" at local brick and mortar retail stores. The model I have in mind would be similar to the user-supported gas price sites that popped up about a year ago, in which people entered what they paid for what type of gas, and other users then could type in a zip code and see the best prices near them. So, being a non-programmer (but willing to learn through trial and error), what language/framework/open-source code do I use to build this? [more inside]

How can I find out if someone's already solved this (fairly specific) programming problem?

I have many short strings of varying lengths — between a dozen and a few hundred, most likely — and one long string. I need to write code that will find a way to assemble a copy of the long string using as few of the short strings as possible. If it's not possible to assemble a complete copy of the long string, it should assemble a copy with as few and as small gaps as possible. [more inside]

From scripting to compiling... I hope

I've got a couple of ideas for useful computer applications, and having moved over to Mac, would like to develop them for OS X. However, I'm completely unfamiliar with developing stand alone programs (I pretty much only work in PHP, though occasionally Perl and have grazed Ruby and Python). Where would I start to learn how to create my own complied apps? C? C++? Any book or artcle repositories you all would suggest?

Monitor a program's memory use

I'm writing a program that uses lots of memory. I'd like a utility that can show me what it's using the memory for. For example, one part of the program processes an XML file, creates an object and loads a WebBrowser .NET control. I'd like to see how much memory was required to parse the XML file, how much memory my object is using, and how much memory the WebBrowser control uses. [more inside]

Getting hired as telecommuter software engineer?

I am an experienced software engineer and was laid off recently. I'm currently applying for positions. My ideal would be a telecommuting gig, which is the type of position I had most recently. A certain job mailing list I subscribe to has a lot of promising positions, but many of them are marked "onsite". Here's my question: shall I apply for some of these "onsite" positions in the hope that my qualifications will impress the hiring person enough to consider hiring me as a telecommuter? Or would this just be a waste of time for everyone concerned? [more inside]

Simple Windows Script to Copy a File in Background??

Anyone on MetaFilter any good at writing Windows Scripting Language (VBScript) scripts? I am a total nonprogrammer but need a simple task done, which is copying a file from one directory to another (on a Win XP) system either (a) every twenty minutes, or better still (b) after checking to see if the archive bit on the file has been reset, indicating that it has been changed since the last filecopy. This should run as a background script without any user intervention or evidence that it is happening, if possible. [more inside]
