Help me find an online file manager that doesn't suck! Everything I've found so far falls into two categories, either (a) sucking, a lot, or (b) requiring, for inexplicable reasons, a database backend. I just want something that will handle file uploads and basic file management (move, rename, delete, copy). [more inside]

In Linux, what's the simplest way to take a podcast RSS file as input, and output a file containing just the URLs of all the MP3s enclosed in the RSS file? Difficulty: the method must only Bash + GNU tools, Python or Perl, with no non-standard add-on libraries or dependencies required.

Convert perl to python: I am very comfortable with regular expressions but I need help converting an implementation of them from Perl to Python. I have an example Perl script below that opens a file, scans through it one line at a time, does a s// replace, then finds a string in the result and stores it in another variable. I would love to just have a working Python version of this for my edification-- and if you have any "Perl to Python" tutorial links I'd love to see them. [more inside]

Due to "security concerns," my web host provider has just banned two Form-to-email scripts
(Formmail and NMS Formmail). Now I'm hard up to find a replacement. Any ideas? I'd prefer a solution that doesn't require a mastery of PERL to configure.

I'm using Grep within BBedit 6.1.2 lite, in order to change some data in tables from "regular" time in the format: "0530PM" to military time: "1730"
Essentially, I am able to locate the data I want using:
Which, in the above example returns: "0530"
So here's the question: I want to treat that result as a number, and add 1200 to it to convert it to military time.
Is there a way to do this within BBedit using the replacement patterns, or do I have to go figure out how to write a perl/python/awk/applescript to accomplish this?

Does anyone know of a Perl or PHP or Python script that can basically do the same thing that del.icio.us does? I also wonder whether the code of del.icio.us itself is for sale.

I have been looking at changing my web development focus from Windows/ASP/.NET to LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) because my gut is telling me that this is where things are going. Oh, Java should be in there as well.
What's the skinny on LAMP in the real world (Netcraft surveys
aside)? Is it difficult to change to LAMP/Java? Is the open source thing really sticking?
