Dear Sophie..

As a father of two little snippers and inspired by a recent advert for Google in which emails are sent to a gmail address detailing a childs life to look back on in future years - how good a way is this to create a multi media archive for posterity? Is it possible to archive entire gmail accounts offline for backup? Concerned that the various external HDs I use to backup will fall apart in the sands of time.

stockroom safety issue

My workplace seems to deal with storage in a way that is unsafe: we have boxes stacked to the ceiling (one box on top of the other, not layered like brick) along several walls and shallow crates and flat boxes stacked to the ceiling in an area at least 6' on each side without any sort of support other than the containers everything is in. Is this normal for stockrooms and warehouses? If not, how can I do something about it? [more inside]

Imac and old mac

Hi, I have a new Imac and an older 32 bit Mac Pro with 4 drives in it. I'm trying to find the best way to keep all of the media and files I have on the old drives but I'd like to access them through the new Imac. Is an external multi-bay case the best way to go? Could I turn the old Mac pro into a server? What's the most cost effective solution?

Where to store 2GB .MOV files online?

I have a Kodak Playsport Zx5 digital video recorder, and a full 16GB SD card worth of 500MB - 2GB .MOV video files. Where can I store them online? I'm interested in the following online video storage features (it would be great to have all of them offered by one website, but if that's not possible, I'll settle for a few): 1. Privacy options for marking videos as public/private 2. Free/Cheap storage 3. Ability to download original file at a later date 4. Ability to play video online

Help me stop things from flying out of a storage slot in my car.

I recently installed a new stereo in my car. It's a single DIN stereo in a double DIN slot, so I now have a storage slot right above the stereo. However, it's made of a hard, slick plastic and anytime I turn the car or brake, whatever is in there can fly out. Does anyone have any ideas for a material or something I could put in there to provide a "grippy" or rubber-type surface that won't let stuff slip out? Amazon links or widely available products would be great. Thanks in advance.

Beam me up

So, I have nearly a terabyte of photos of my daughter stored on a computer which has been taken over by tr/crypt.xpack.gen (if that is your real name). It would probably be best that I store the photos on some sort of server somewhere (clouds?), but I know nothing of such things. Any advice on online storage, computer security, and not shooting in raw would be greatly appreciated. Please help, as we would rather not have to force my daughter back in the womb to recreate the photos of her birth. [more inside]

How long will my chicken last?

I bought a hot rotisserie chicken from the deli section at the local health food store today. I took it apart and packed the light and dark meat and some of the skin into glass mason jars. I am storing these jars in my fridge. How long can I expect them to last? Can I eat the chicken from the jars 3 to 4 days from now? If I had just put the whole chicken in the fridge, would it have lasted longer? Thank you so much!

Storage Insert/Frame for Men's Dress Shirts?

This may be so simple as to be a waste of a question, but help me out: I have a bunch of dress shirts that are traditionally hung up, but due to a (favorable) change in my dress code at work, I’d like to take them down and put them away to free up some closet space. I seem to remember there being some sort of framework/insert that you could buy and insert into such shirts that would help them keep their shape better or not get permanently irrevocably wrinkled. Any idea what these things are called and where I could buy them online?
