I'm running software on a client's server that needs to send email reports. It typically uses sendmail, but we switched the DNS over to the client's own special MX records instead of the local mail exchanger. My software can use SMTP--what do I need to know in order to ask the client's IT guy for access without looking like a complete idiot? [more inside]
Looking for a network building/maintaining tool. Is there some sort of app (mac or web based) that will allow me to track how long it has been since talking to someone? Ideally I'd like to see one page with a horizontal bar graph with the number of days since last contact on the x-axis. So as the time between talking grows, the bar expands outwards. [more inside]

I have an idea for a humorous flash survey designed to place the user into a certain profile (similar to the "What kind of hipster are you?" survey). I'm sure many of you have used or seen such surveys (or their results) on sites like Myspace or CollegeHumor. The idea I have would lend itself to the same kind of usage; I can envision people placing the results onto their friends Myspace pages and so forth, or perhaps embedding the application into the page itself. I understand Flash and Actionscript, but I've never created anything like this before, so I have a few questions. [more inside]

So, the Achilles' heel of Social Networking is the 'What Now' Issue. Once you've listed all your friends publicly, which doesn't solve any problems you had in the first place, you're pretty much left hanging. Ideas about getting around this problem in building a social networking app? [more inside]

Every once in a while, when I search Google, I end up with some weird search results. All ads. It doesn't happen all the time and I don't know if it's Google stooping to a new low, or if it's me and some kind of adware. Note that I also get a pop-up window with this page that has a couple other ad links. [more inside]

In addition, what would I expect to pay? What's the best way to find such a person?

I use Gallery for the gallery of photos on my website. It's got a great feature set -- the main reason I don't just switch to a different web gallery app -- but the the code is so bloated that it would take weeks for me to slim it down enough that it would match the minimalist templates on the rest of my site. I think a better solution might be to use a couple of minimalist scripts to go into the Gallery database and pull a customized, minimal version of the output that could then be integrated into my site. Does anyone know where I could download or buy such a script or add-on?
