Is this storage company unfairly charging a late fee because they cannot process a check fast enough?

I've been using automated payments through my bank to pay a storage company. Lately, they changed their late fee grace period -- and I was hit with late fees. Not because the payment was late, but because they process bank checks in a special and slow way. . . [more inside]

File systems for Mac and PC

I just bought my first Mac and I keep finding conflicting reports when it comes to file systems. All of my music and photos are on an external drive, formatted NTFS. Will OS X be able to read/write to it, or will I have to backup the files and reformat? I still need to be able to connect the external HD to a PC on occasion, but it will primarily be used with the Mac. Thanks in advance!

pearls in the freezer, i know i know - it's ludicrous

Will pearls - regular, black and other types, both freshwater and non - be damaged by freezing for extended periods of time? We're not talking deep-freeze, just the temperature (or range of temperatures) in your average home kitchen freezer.

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. Does that mean that your body will add 4,000 calories worth of fat? Or is there any limit to the amount of fat the body can store in one sitting? [more inside]

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.
