What are some tips/tricks you have used to making moving easier?

I have packed up maybe %15-%20 of the house and keep feeling 'I can't pack that yet, we will need it in the coming week!' D:

Have you ever made a tutorial?

To show my long distance friend how to change the seam on a shoulder I made a tutorial. :D

I hope you have a great day!

30 second video contest

I'm entering this video contest to win a spot on an expedition that will travel across the Atlantic to research and raise awareness about plastic pollution. I have 30-45 seconds to convince viewers on why they should pick me and what I will you do with the knowledge gained to solve the problem of plastic pollution.

How would you make this 30-45 second video to capture viewers? It doesn't have to be super creative, and I don't have any youtube vlogger skills. I am going to say that I am a creative writer and about to go to graduate school for marine policy, so I will use my storytelling skills and academic interest to make a difference. But I have to say this in a short amount of time that blows people away, not bore them to death.

What would you do?

Computer game help

Hi all, not sure if I'm in the right place.

I remember playing a game in the 90's about a couple of American kids who solved crimes. In the follow-up game, they went to London and had a sort of Sherlock Holmes thing going on.

Does anyone remember this? If not, is there a community that can?


sex dilemma

I have a friend whose husband had a knee replacement surgery and he's in a lot of pain from it. What are some sexual positions that would alleviate pressure on his knee, but allow them to satisfy their needs? She does not like to be on top at all. Any ideas? Thanks.

Okay, so, tech dilemma (and I have Googled this to hell and back):

My job requires me to do a mind-numbing series of database searches with slightly changing parameters and including different series of keywords. Then I save the results to a file and go through them later. It is getting tedious and excruciating. I mean, there are hundreds of these.

I need to either find a program or write one that can take a series of variables and use these as my keywords, then go through a pre-programmed set of steps for me (setting the search parameters) to end up with these saved files.

I'm finding things like this list, but I don't think any of these would actually be advanced enough to do what I want: (I can run Ubuntu or Windows, whichever would work better for this.)

I'm thinking of how Photoshop can do batch rotations, or how you can make a mail merge in Word to pull in a list of names into a pre-existing document - if those things are possible, I think what I need should be possible. I wouldn't mind learning a scripting language to be able to automate this, but I don't know enough yet to know which one might be useful? Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks much!!
