How do I build good bookshelves?

Can any of you folks point me to a good, simple plan for built-in bookshelves? Our book collection has way outgrown the capacity of the bookcases we have, and I'd like to build some bookshelves that are attached to the walls of our house. But the plans I have found in home-improvement books seem too complicated for my (nonexistent) carpentry skills. Here are the tools I've got: a hand-held circular saw, an electric drill, screwdrivers and a hammer. I want something nice-looking and presentable for the public areas of the house; i.e., not a cinderblock solution.

Ditching jewel cases! Need binder sleeves to store everything.

I want to store a few dozen CDs with their liner notes and inserts (we're talking the regular American style thick CD jewel cases). Most of the CD binders seem only able to store the booklet, not the tray inserts. I'd like one that can store everything except the plastic. I want to be able to stick them back into jewel cases if I ever decide to get rid of them. [more inside]

External storage or network storage for streaming audio at home?

I'm using a Squeezebox to stream music from my 'puter (running XP) and my wife's (running OS X) to my amplifier via my wifi connection. It's time to get me some external storage so we can combine libraries, so I'm looking for either a plain ol' external drive OR a networked storage drive. Question is: can I get away with an external drive or do I need networked storage to make this work? I've read through similar archived questions but haven't quite gotten the clarity I so desperately need. More inside.... [more inside]

Shipping large amounts of data to a lot of customers?

I need to get 40-60 gigs of data to about 200 customers a month. Currently I am using DVDs and am finding it a total hassle. I am considering harddrives but I think they will be more or less an equivalent hassle. Is there some other way? Downloads seem a little unfeasible due to the size but I'd be interesting in hearing anything.

Seeking PC power supply recommendation

I am in the process of building an AMD Sempron 2400+ based file storage machine. I am seeking recommendation for how big a power supply I need. I am planning on 4 to 5 (may be 6 in future) 250GB Seagates, 2x320GB WD Sata drives, 1 DVD writer, Geforce FX 5500 video card. The $50 case has a stock 480W PSU. I am wondering if I need more juice and possibly something by a well known brand ? I recently built an Athlon box with Seasonic 430 PSU. Seems pretty quiet. Not sure if I should get another of those.
