21st-Century Tech meets 19th-Century Habits

I'm stumped. Are there any iPad address book apps that have space to let you record POSTAL addresses? They all seem to give space for everything but - phone, mobile, Linkedin, web, Twitter, email, Foursquare, Instagram, etc., but no space for stick-a-stamp-on-an-envelope-and-drop-it-in-the-mail mailing addresses. (I also have the sinking feeling y'all are gonna come in with like 20, so can we also turn this into "recommend me your favorite one"?) Thanks.

Is A Masters' Degree In Professional Writing Worth It?

I've wanted to try to shift from being "secretary who writes" to "writer" for a while now, and just not really had a good plan how - nor any background in the technical writing that really would be where most of the money comes in. Would a full-on masters' degree program teach me that, but have any other benefits (i.e., networking, connections, etc. to jumpstart the career) or am I just fine with the occasional Gotham Writers' mart course and a lot of word-of-mouth?

I Only Have So Much Brain Power

For the overwhelming bulk of my adult life, I've had the "creative-thing-with-a-day-job" model. I've been in the market for both opportunities recently - and just made some great headway on the "creative thing", but not on the "day job" bit. Help me make sure that I don't worry so much about the day job problem that it takes away from jumping on the new creative opportunity. [more inside]

So Nice, I Wanna Publish Them Twice

Possibly confirming the obvious - I wrote a crapton of essays and articles for a market that a) was extremely limited and b) doesn't exist any more. I also believe the contract said the original market was "first rights" only. ...It's probably safe to try to pitch polished-up versions of some of those articles to a wider market by now, right?

The Cockroach of the Internet

They don't even USE Facebook; but I check my own account when I visit them (about twice a year). I've just run Malware Bytes and run their Norton; Malware picked something up and killed it, but then it tried to install something again and I ran Norton, but that only found one cookie. Help?
