I bank with Chase, and they gave me two free boxes of checks when I opened my account in 2008 which have lasted me until now. I called them up and they want to charge me $28/box plus tax and delivery, which seems ridiculous. I don't know anything about how third-party checking orders work, though, and would like to make sure I order through a reputable place. [more inside]
Let's say I really care about some charity. I'd like to do an online fundraising drive---with premiums that I send to donors. I'm not affiliated with the charity, or I am but this drive is an independent, personal initiative. Either way, the charity isn't involved except for the happy day when they get a check. Is there some online service that makes all this easy for me? [more inside]
A team from our office is heading over to a number of China cities and they want to be active on social media the whole time to promote it.

Does instagram work? What about Linkedin?

In many advanced democracies around the world these days, coalition governments are in place (Japan, England and Australia just to name a few). Is it 'technically' possible in the US - given the rise of 'third party' candidates (or 'fourth' 'fifth' whatever ...) - for Congress to operate in that fashion? Positions like 'House Majority/Minority Leader' and suchlike seem to be predicated on the existence of two opposing blocks. Could either the House or Senate operate if there were (say) three large parties dividing up the seats, instead of two?
So now that Apple has "relaxed" its restrictions on third-party development tools, which ones should I know about? [more inside]
My trouble figuring out how to deal with a long-distance romantic interest was just complicated by an overshare by an overzealous "helper." Long-time relationshipfilter listnener, first-time caller. [more inside]
I need a third party Blogger app that'll help me manage draft posts. Either that, or instructions on how to do this in Blogger itself. [more inside]

Say you've got a domain and a server, but the account didn't come with any POP3 setup. Assuming you're not going to abandon that hosting provider for one reason or another, what's the best 3rd party POP account provider? And is this a huge headache?
