I'm a bad geek who has never built a website ... not even static HTML. Help me figure out how to build an interactive website with a python backend. [more inside]
This weekend I'm setting up a website for an academic event. I'd like the homepage of the site to have large, clickable progress bars that display the number of posts for each of the subpages (News & Announcements, Blog, Events, etc.). As more posts are added to each of the subpages (posts would likely be sorted and displayed by category and tag), its respective progress bar takes up more screen real estate and the tally count listed on/near it increases. Basically, I want the homepage to look like a giant, dynamic bar chart. Is there a freeware (or cheap) template, widget or piece of code that allows me to do this? [more inside]

I seem to recall a site run by some guy that noted pundits' and analysts' forecasts. If an analyst said Vista was going to flop, this was the type of site to record that. I think I saw this site mentioned a couple years ago on daring fireball, or perhaps waxy. It definitely had the "claim chowder" vibe.

I have a how-to type web site that's grown to be fairly large. The categories I've created to organize my articles often don't fit well and I may already have too many. I'm also not using tags. I seem to lack both a good system and an aptitude for labeling & categorizing things. I need to come up with a better method that my readers will find more useful and which will also be search engine friendly. [more inside]

I run a small website for a sport I enjoy and am passionate about - traffic is good (at least I'm happy) and in the last few weeks I've been starting to get some press coverage. All good so far... A PR company have asked me to submit a 'media pack' - I have no idea what that is, or what might be included in there - I have asked the contact, but I'm thinking I should try and get ahead of the game.

Help me remember an old website: it had art projects that (re)used computers. One project was old PC monitors with motors inside which tracked and followed a person, as if the computer could see him. Second project was using barcodes, which one scanned and produced an object on a screen. If I remember well, other barcodes were actions (i.e. shrink, grow, destroy the object). I think there were others, but I only remember those two.

Is there a site, similar to StubHub, that sells sports tickets, but with transparent pricing? I.e., I want to be able to go to the site, find tickets, and know what I will pay without having to click through to the end and find out that there is a per ticket fee of $25. I don't mind paying delivery charges, even $15 per order, as long as they are consistent. StubHub et al. are too unethical for me to support, and Craigslist is a lot of work.

And should be SFW.
