We are dragging and dropping picture files from a Windows XP PC onto a 256 MB Lexar compact flash card in a SanDisk card reader. The card no longer accepts data after around 125 MB have been transferred to it. How can we fill the card to its full 256 MB capacity to view digital photos in a digital picture frame device?

Largest internal HD for a Macbook Pro

What's the largest internal hard drive available for a Mac Book Pro? I currently have a 120 ATA drive that came preinstalled when I bought the computer. Preferably, I'd like to be able to have two internal hard drives, swapping out my DVD drive...I know that the MCE OptiBay Hard Drive 160gb/5400rpm is available, but I'd like something bigger!

Is there a limit to the amount of calories the body can store as fat at any one time?

Is there a limit to the amount of calories the body can store as fat at any one time? My question is, let's say you go over your caloric needs by 4,000 on one day.

Storing data online & piping data info to a file

I'm selling my current computer soon. There's a few GB worth of files that I'd like to preserve. Are there any free or cheap online services that will provide this service? I'll only need access to it once or twice later on, to restore it on my new computer. I only have a few blank CDs and not enough time to burn everything, and no concurrent access to the two computers. Besides, I prefer flexible online access. On a related note, I'd like store some information about the files in a text file. In the good ol' DOS days, I could pipe the 'dir' output to a text file. Except these files have some metadata that can't be displayed in the command prompt. Equivalent functionality for Windows Explorer or other GUI shells?

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.

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?
