How do sites like DailyLit split up large text files into smaller files and then email them? [more inside]
For a research project, we’re asking ~24 high school and college students to log their experiences with homework by sending us text messages and photos over the course of about two weeks. Is there a site where they can send those messages so that we could see them from a computer? There are particular features we’re seeking... What comes closest to satisfying them? [more inside]

Text on my Mac pro's monitor is behaving oddly, with intermittent horizontal bars of static across the lines of text. I think it might be the video card. Is it about to die? [more inside]
I'm giving a big presentation in a couple of weeks and it has to be impressive. I have a fabulous idea for a graphic, inspired by the facebook friend wheel
, where I want to wrap perhaps 100 words around a circle
and draw lines to connect them in illustrative ways. The drawing lines part is easy, but the wrapping text around a circle part is hard (without doing it one element at a time, rotating and aligning each one just so). I *know* there's an easy way to do this, but am not quite smart enough to figure it out in omnigraffle or find another program that can do it. I can use Mac or PC. If you point me to a workable solution, you'll get your name in lights (if you wish) in addition to my unending gratitude.
I did a dumb thing. I put together a book list in this format:
first-name last-name (tab) book-title
Note that there *isn't* a comma between the author's first and last name.
Is there any "computer magic" I can perform to change it to this format:
last-name first-name (tab) book-title
The list is just in text format, for what it's worth. I'm on a Mac but also have access to a PC. I'd rather not have to cut-n-paste the last names, it's a pretty long list.
