Does anyone out there know of a simple, preferably web-based, database front end? We've got two choices on a project at work - either code up a custom interface for the client or find an off the shelf product that can do the job. Unfortunately most of what I've found are too feature rich and complex for what we need (simple form based data entry and a good query interface).

My current PDA (a Sony Clie NX80) came out in 2003 and is showing its age. Actually this is the second one of this model I've owned. The first one still works except for HotSyncing. The second one works except for the camera. Anyway...

The main thing lacking from it is access to the Internet (technically it has wifi, but it is very old and difficult to use), so time to look into something new.

Features I want but don't currently have:
- Internet access - wireless preferred, but I'd go with wifi only to save money if I can get all the other features I want
- Camera - the camera on my cell phone sucks and I rarely have our digital camera with me when I want to take a picture.

Features I have and need to keep (can be through additional apps)
- Calendar, Address book, Note pad - all synced with desktop application.
- MP3 player - especially for audio books and music on road trips.
- Read and write Word and Excel files (or OpenOffice files)
- Read PDF files.
- Load (and sync) files.
- Database program (mostly just able to load my data exported from LibraryThing and BoardGameGeek) Currently using SmartListToGo
- Ability to store web pages off line (unless I have full wireless access, in which case I don't need them off-line) Currently using Plucker.

I've lived with 2 GB of storage for a while now, but would prefer a lot more (2 for audio books, 2 for data and docs, lots and lots for music)

I've got Verizon right now for my cell phone service, which none of the big three smart phones use (iPhone, Palm Pre, G1). I'm not opposed to getting a smart phone with the lowest voice plan and unlimited data and just use it for data (looks like both the iPhone and Palm Pre can do this for $70/month) Tonight I'm paying bills which will serve to remind me that I don't have much money to spend on a new monthly bill.

Anyone out there with more experience then I care to comment or suggest?

Next October we're going to be visiting Disney World for our friend's wedding (yay!!!). I haven't been to Disney World in over 20 years (Michael Jackson's Captain EO was the brand new attraction at Epcot when I was last there).

For those of you who are big fans, or have just been there more recently, what are the must see attractions? What are your favorites?

The only thing on my list right now is seeing the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba.

Does anyone out there have access to the Early English Books Online (EEBO) service? Usually though a university library. I've got a book or two I'd like to look at or get a copy of.

Does anyone out there have the right connections to get a hardback copy of a dissertation for a good price?
I want to get this: "Los libros de acedrex dados e tablas: Historical, artistic and metaphysical dimensions of Alfonso X's 'Book of Games'"
by Sonja Musser Golladay

I found one place to do it, but for an individual it will run over $100.

Does anyone have a favorite web conferencing provider?  Got any to avoid?
