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?

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]

Which websites use a "buy a day in our calendar to advertise" model? I can think of Unicorn Booty
and I Wear Your Shirt
, and I vageuly remember one from a few years ago but can't recall now.

What fascinating websites am I missing? I regularly check out salon.com, slate, nytimes, huffingtonpost, reddit, jezebel, & of course metafilter. What websites do you check in on regularly?

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!

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? 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.

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 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.

I know how to make database-driven web sites using Windows servers, Access, IIS, and ASP.
I want to learn how to do the same using Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and... whatever you use instead of Access.
Where do I start?
