LookingForWebsiteFilter: I'm looking for a site I saw, but failed to bookmark. The page is kinda blog-y (but also has projects and other stuff), and the top left corner has a page-curl effect, under which there's a round, grey "Home" icon linking back to the homepage. Black text on white background, otherwise. Anyone know it?
Say a business has had various articles written about them in newspapers. Could that business then reproduce those articles on its own website, for informational purposes? e.g. 'Click here to see what the NYT had to say about us,' etc. I know that I could just link to the articles on the newspaper's site, but I can't guarantee that those will stay online.

Thanks to your earlier help, I have successfully ported my C# project over to the Mac. I have also ordered a new DSL line with a static IP from bway.net. What do I need to know in order to host my website, accessible via my TLD, on a PowerPC Mac mini running OS X 10.4? How can I be my own DNS and mail server? Without overshadowing that question, would it be smarter to think in terms of DynDNS for external DNS/mail services?

Anyone know of any websites created to promote unsigned/unknown bands? Something preformatted where you can display a few pictures, a schedule of upcoming gigs, maybe a paypal link to sell your CD, etc. Hopefully with your own link (i.e. http://website.com/myband that can be printed on flyers, etc. Free is always great, very low cost is okay. I'm trying to help a local wedding/bar band that is NOT net-savvy or flush with cash.

Website Content Management Q: I'm setting up a website for my online comic and have no idea what script is needed (or possible) to automate the "previous" and "next" navigation buttons to show a strip to my visitors on a page they haven't yet visited. Make sense? Also, are there any easy to install scripts that automatically update my site by posting today's strip that I have previously uploaded (so I don't have to upload or change code every single day)???
This might have been asked before but I couldn't find it in my search. My website has no advertising. Other websites have been displaying my content inside frames surrounded by advertising. How may I prevent this from happening?

Trademarks - There's a forum-style website called IKEAforum and it displays the IKEA logo, but has a disclaimer that the site has no sponsorship or affiliation whatsoever with IKEA. Is the creator of this website at risk for a lawsuit from IKEA for trademark violation? (due to the URL, use of logo, etc). Could IKEA shut him down? Does it matter that it's not a money-making site (and sells no ad space)? If I created a similar site regarding another retailer (but NOT using its logo) -- how risky is that? Free legal advice is welcome ;-)

I am trying to make the case for an organization that it is important for them to have a shorter, easier-to-remember URL for their new website. It seems obvious to me that a website like this would get more visitors, more word-of-mouth spread, and more repeat visitors as well--but I can't find any statistics on this in my searching. Can anyone point me to a study or report which may be useful? Thanks!
