Fascinating, geeky single-topic web sites from the 90s/early 00s?

I was thinking back to high school, when I spent hours browsing archives such as the Jargon File, the d20 SRD, and bash.org. Of course, these are just scratching the surface - I read pages and pages of D+D files, funny anecdotes, and interesting stories on personal sites. I miss the magic of diving into a site like that - any recommendations?

Can you learn to beautify websites?

I have been through a few HTML and CSS online courses and am able to build basic websites, but how do I learn to decide what I want them to look like?

Best website for purchasing website/wordpress templates?

Helping friends set up their small business website. I am not a web designer/developer, just fine with tweaking, dependable and honest--unlike their last web person. They don't need a lot of fancy stuff, but I would like to move them off of google sites and get them something 1)more professional 2) still easily updatable. They are hosted on godaddy with redirects now, which is wasteful. The godaddy webbuilder software does not impress so far. [more inside]

Interesting Websites

I work as a librarian and am on desk for 25 hours a week. I spend much of it on library sites but am interested in sites you find as interesting reads whatever they might be. Anything decent for the workplace. And I know interesting is subjective...I'm all ears!

Is offering up long blocks of academic web page content an inherently bad idea, ignoring ad revenue, bandwidth and clickthroughs?

Do longer articles on the web really have to be split up into small, bite-size pieces as most sites seem to prefer doing? Putting ad revenue and click-through considerations aside, I need to know if there are any dangers associated with keeping a ~5k to ~15k word article on one page is an inherently bad idea.

Why does IE hate my website?

Why does IE hate my website? I've got it looking decent in Safari and Firefox, but it looks hideous in Explorer. Having done a fair amount of Googling, I've come to the conclusion that it's probably related to one of Explorer's notorious CSS rendering bugs, but my self-taught CSS and HTML is not enough to enable me to pinpoint and solve the problem.

What's the best means to mirror a webserver directory on a local OS X machine?

I maintain a complex website that I update by hand. (Unfortunately, this is unavoidable.) I want my local directory to be an exact mirror of the site, so that when I alter and modify thirty HTML files and I can simply run a script to copy them instead of FTPing them all by hand, in addition to removing deleted files and downloading any server-side changes made by scripts or other users. What's the best means to do this on OS X? [more inside]

With the recent decision by Kottke.org to be reader supported, I'm curious to see how you value your daily reads?

With the recent decision by kottke.org to be solely reader-supported, I'm curious to see how you value your reads. Would you be willing to pay $30 a year for Metafilter? More? Less? How about for some up-and-coming web magazines that operate on a daily basis, say The Morning News, The Black Table, etc.? And how much for up-to-the-second pro blogs in the Gawker empire where advertising is used? Gawker? Gizmodo? Wonkette, etc? How much for Boing Boing were it to be ad free? How much for Fark? How much for the individuals' blogs you frequent? And for some Kottke.org fans who don't see $30 as a micropayment, how much would you be willing to pay for a year of his content? Curious to see what range of dollar-value folks assign to their daily reads that are currently free to access. Please name and value other sites of your choosing.

Top image bar on website broken in IE6 and FF; text is obscured. How to fix this?

I've knocked up a website which is modifed from some of the templates from the layout reservoir. However the top bar which contains the image is causing problems under some browsers (IE6 and Firefox being two) because the height doesn't match the image height which means that the text is obscured. Any suggestions? [more inside]
