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]

Is there a good skill-swapping website?

Can anybody recommend a good skill-bartering website? I'm a writer, and I've spent the past week tearing my hair out in an unsuccessful attempt to debug the website I'm putting up for my new humor book. I have a feeling that the remaining bugs are something a professional web designer could fix in a day. Meanwhile, there must be webdesigners out there who could use a writer's help in making their sites better written and/or funnier. Googling has turned up a ton of barter sites, but I don't know which (if any) are reputable and useful. [more inside]

Illustrator's portfolio website with great flash work?

This is a long shot: I'm looking for a digital illustrator's portfolio website that I saw previewed on a portal a while ago. His/Her work was soft edged, used lots of color and almost watercolor-type brushes (digital). The site was done in flash and had amazing "watery ripple" transitions in between sections, almost like a dream sequence on tv shows. I also remember you could pickup a mock brush and play with it as well.

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.

Where to find Martin Luther King information and speeches?

Scholarly-but-accessible reference about Chinese history and culture.

I have done some Googling and poking around amazon.com, but frankly my ignorance is so deep that I have no good way of evaluating the quality of what I'm finding.

Best of FWDs

Wacky commercials (car hood whacking pigeon). Altered commercials (trunk monkey). Weird video clips (dog on skateboard, star wars boy). Cute mashups. Is there a single site that catalogs and warehouses these short masterpieces of folk video art? Sort of a "Best of" all the stuff that is being forwarded? Surely someone is collecting these!

HTML issues

HTML crisis: I use relative URLS on my blog because pages archive in different files- for example, a tag for a JPEG would be /images/image.jpg inside image tags. Because I use that first slash to make the relative URL work, all image tags are broken when you type or link to my site without a "www" in the url. In other words, "www.mysite.com" shows all the images fine, but "mysite.com" loads the site with little red x's everywhere. Solution? [more inside]

Websites with lists/reviews of educational books, videos, software for children ages 5-18?

Librarianfilter: My girlfriend is "wondering if anyone could recommend good websites containing lists/reviews for educational books/videos/software for children (ages 5 up through high school)? I recently acquired the responsibility of selecting materials (I'm a librarian) for our University's Educational Resource Center and don't have an education background so I'm new to this. I know about the Parent's Choice Foundation. I was wondering if there is something similar for librarians/educators? I get tons of catalogs but want lists/reviews, preferably online. Thanks!"
