Best Webhosting for Adult Content?

Hi, I need to purchase some (cheap?) hosting for a small portfolio site for my camgirl/webcam model persona. I also need to host photos for my profiles on chat/clips sites. Is there a simple, easy, not shady, not expensive company you'd particularly recommend that is fine with adult content? [more inside]

Genealogy Sites?

It's been a few years since this question has been asked, and I know things have changed since then. There's so much info out there on the various genealogy sites, and I'm not sure what to do. Right now I have free trials with MyHeritage and Geni, but apparently a relative has done a lot of research into a certain branch of my family on Ancestry.com. I'm looking for insight on which to pick in terms of price and usefulness, etc.

How to deal with a copyright claim—YouTube version

I made a trailer for a math class using Battle Without Honor or Humanity (not very creative, sorry). Now I'm embroiled in a copyright claim and I'd like to know how to respond. I checked some old asks, but they're three years old or so. [more inside]

Help me not rage-drive my car into a telephone pole

I have a 2016 Honda Fit. It has a Bluetooth connection, but I usually plug my phone into the aux cable so my phone can charge while I'm driving ( the aux connection overrides the Bluetooth). Whenever I do this and the car audio is on, my iTunes music automatically starts playing (in alphabetical order by song) as soon as the phone is plugged in. How can I keep this from happening? I can only hear "Alcohol" by the Barenaked Ladies so many times before I go mad.

Looking for Amazon Echo help...help...help

Just set up a new Echo for my mother, and we are having an issue that is small, but sort of irritating. Alexa is answering all queries (as best she can), but the little "bong" that acknowledges that she is being addressed is not happening. Glitch, or do the newer ones just not do it anymore? This has proven difficult to Google.

Android phone, take dictation! No, not a vacation!

I write best while I'm walking, and for an upcoming project I'd like to streamline this using some sort of speech-to-text word-processing setup on my Google Nexus phone. Google's native voice recognition in Docs hates my voice and produces only large paragraphs of semipunctuated gibberish. What app(s) + accessories setup will give me accurate, extended voice-to-text transcription with minimal oversight, ideally also with good punctuation functionality? [more inside]

a very important question about instagram

Hello. Is there an app for android that will allow me to make layouts with multiple photos (like Layout), but split diagonally rather than vertically/horizontally? This is proving strangely difficult to find. Thanks!

Why don't magnets stick to hard drive platters?

Conventional hard drives are magnetic media, so why is it if you disassemble one and stick a magnet to a platter, you don't feel any magnetic attraction at all? I can understand feeling a very weak level of attraction, but it feels like sticking a magnet to a piece of plastic or wood.
