Open domains and business names for a mailing service?

I want to start a service that will put real letters into the mail via a website. I kind of prefer a meaningless name that is simple, unambiguous to spell, and memorable that would grow with the site, if it began to branch out into different areas. And of course, the domain should be open. Any ideas? [more inside]

Help me keep helping people tell stories

I work at a publisher, in the production part of the business. I organise editors, designers and projects on the one side of things; printers, print runs and shipping on the other. It's clear to me that at least one half of these activities will soon diminish greatly, as paper publishing winds down and web / ebooks take over. So: What skills and talents do I need to develop to keep helping people produce and share content in the future? [more inside]

I need a tool to replace DabbleDB

The online database tool DabbleDB is closing up shop this Wednesday. It's a great tool - excellent ui, cloud availability for data entry and access, easy RSS feeds. Any recommendations on another tool that offers the same? I've looked at Zoho and found it inferior in every way.

What is the best solution for developing an online community site in PHP?

I have tried Elgg and BuddyPress, but those solutions just don't seem to work very well, mostly because of issues with the templates. I want to develop an online community that is based around my online radio station. The community should have forums, chat, galleries, user search, comments, walls, and all the other basic stuff that comes with an online community. It needs to be completely graphically customisable I'm looking for the best solution that is under $600, but preferable free.

How should I build an online testing site?

I'd like to build a Web site that: asks users 50 specific yes/no questions, tallies their answers and then spits out a percentage answer at the end of the quiz. Are there any platforms/services out there (sort of like what Ning provides for social networks) that would help me build a test to share with my co-workers? The purpose my test is to help the test-taker to assess threats. Sample questions might include, 1.) Did the caller sound angry? 2.) Does the caller have a history of making threats? 3.) etc... I would want people to be able to go to this site and take the test over and over again if needed. Bonus points if: 1.) The importance of individual questions can be weighted differently, 2.) The test can be password protected, 3.) The platform let's me point a URL to my test, and 4.) The platform lets me add a logo / design elements to my test. Does such a platform exist? Thanks for your help MeFi!

Easy way to sell documents on the web?

Is there any easy way to sell downloadable electronic documents (PDF format) on the web? I'd prefer that it be closely integrated into the interface of an existing website that I maintain. I'm looking for a system where someone chooses a document they want to buy, pays through a third-party site (and the third party then passes the money on to me), and the document is instantly made available to the customer. I know about sites like Lulu.com, etc., but I would prefer that this be done on my website.
