How can I simply print an envelope or two from my Mac to any printer that can handle envelopes? I'm printing directly on the envelope, but it's a standard #10 envelope--no labels, no odd sizes. I'd like USPS barcodes. I've got a copy of EasyEnvelopes and I've been trying to print from it, but nothing happens on my printer and I can't update it because they charge for it now. Printing other docs works fine. [more inside]

Hello Mefites! I'm looking for a reliable online service to pull population numbers by zip code, and while I know there are tons out there, I need one that isn't just plugging in one zip code at a time. Ideally, I'd like to be able to just download a database list of zip codes and their corresponding populations for the country, or state by state, to a CSV or XML file. Does this exist? The "reliable, up to date (as much as possible) source" part is important, as this data will be used as part of a franchise sale package. Thank you in advance!

My partner accidentally jammed a plastic carrier bag in one of the zippers of my travel bag and then yanked it - with the result that a fragment of carrier bag has been pulled inside the zip, jamming it completely. All the tips I see are for fabric becoming stuck, but in this case there is a fragment of plastic inside jamming everything, which can't be pulled out. Attempts to pull it out just pulled off the protruding ends, making things worse. Is there any way to fix this? Thanks!
A while ago, I backed up a bunch of old cell-phone photos in a big (~800MB) ZIP file. Much later, I find that I inadvertently or forgetfully password-protected it, and now I can't get to all my old photos. I've tried the brute-force, dictionary, and other approaches through applications like this. Am I out of luck? [more inside]

Need help solving a zip archive timestamp & GNU make interaction problem on Linux, MacOSX, and other systems.
We ran into the following conundrum while distributing source code for some open-source software we produce. Our code is pretty straightforward C++ stuff with makefiles designed for GNU make. We distribute the package as a zip archive. Works on most systems (Linux, Windows, MacOS, FreeBSD and others). Now, zip stores and unzip restores the file timestamps. Problem is, if someone downloads the archive in an earlier time zone than the one in which it was produced, the unarchived files have a timestamp in the future. [more inside]
Is there unZIPping/unRARing software for the Mac that allows you to see what's inside of an archive file without extraction? Seems like double-clicking on archives with any software I've used immediately extracts the files within. I'd like to be able to preview those files first, and perhaps selectively extract, or not extract at all.
I've got a ~350mb zip archive that I created a couple of years ago. It contains files that are now fairly important to my portfolio. And I can't get them out. Please hope me. [more inside]

My company has a cartload of old zip disks with non-confidential info on them (and a zip drive). Is there any good way to dispose of these...? Someplace that could erase and reuse or resell them would be ideal, since we don't have the staff to go through and erase them ourselves. (We're in N. TX but could possibly ship them off). I just hate to put them in the landfill.

I want to start doing nightly offsite copies of a MSSQL database at work.

Wacky Windows question. I recently did some work on my chiefs computer and in the process upgraded his OS from 98 to 2000Pro. The problem is his backups (that he never mentioned existed) are saved without an extension on a Zip disk. Does this naming convention look familiar to anyone: "Backup Job 4, Disk 1, 04-12-14 22.20.05.1-Step" ?
Program that will batch adjust light levels on (ZIP and RAR) compressed CBZ and CBR files of scanned JPEGs?
I have a large amount of CBZ and CBR files that are ZIP and RAR files respectively with scanned JPEGs of comic books inside them. Thing is, the levels on the scans are sometimes too dark or too bright. Is there a windows program that would batch fix the levels (like photoshop's Automatic Levels command) on the compressed archives without having to unzip pr unrar them first?
Let's say I have an Apple OS X computer with a gigantic, 1.5 GB file that I'd like to put onto 3 or 4 CDs, to give someone. What's the best way to spread a file across several discs? Multiple zip files? The UNIX zip command? Some backup program?
