Best way to recruit web developers?

My employer is asking me to look into recruiting strategies for LAMP/PHP developers. We've been having bad luck finding appropriate candidates and actually getting them in for interviews (posting jobs on CareerBuilder & CL). I'm not really an HR person (nor am I a tech person), so I've never done this before. He's interested in possibly buying resume access on Monster, CareerBuilder, or Dice -- is one better than the others for this type of thing? Any suggestions for other strategies to use? [more inside]

How to automate 4 different web searches for the same query?

I'm learning a language (Hungarian) and I look up new words in a bunch of websites (2 dictionaries, Google images inside of Google Translate, Forvo.com). In general, I just copy and paste each word into the URLs, but there must be some way of clicking a button and searching all four websites at once. Is there? [more inside]

Sites to find sites like the ones you like?

Are there any sites out there that work on a principle similar to gnod, but for finding web sites you might like? i.e. You input sites that you like, and it gives you a list of other sites you might also like.

I Need A Web Page Archiver That Does This...

I use DevonThink and have decided it's a bit of overkill for my purposes. So here's what I'm looking for: I want a tool that allows me to save web pages from within the browser of my choice. I want a series of Javascript pseudo-bookmark buttons along the top of my browser, each one corresponding to a category within the application. E.g., I might have buttons/categories for "Book Reviews", "Recipes", "Gadgets To try", etc. So, if I'm looking at a book review I want to keep, I click on the "Book Review" button and it is copied and stored by the application. I'd prefer to do this locally, but I'd consider an online solution. I am not, however, looking for a glorified bookmark service. I want something that copies pages and makes them available for searching and reading within the application. Oh yeah, it's for OS X.

Gullible is not in the dictionary

I'm using FireFox 1.07 for Windows XP. Previously, when I typed "dict [word]" into the address bar, FireFox would take me to the dictionary.com definition for [word]. Now typing in the same command just takes me to the first result of a Google search for "dict [word]," the same as if I typed anything into the address bar. Recently all my Firefox bookmarks disappeared as well. I haven't updated Firefox or changed anything that I know of. What happened, and how do I restore the old functionality?

Weird Google Search Results

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]
