I am having big troubles moving some very big word processing files from my old computer onto an IBM Aptiva with Windows 98 installed. Do I need a Zip Drive? I have just a floppy and a CD drive. Instead of a $150 Zip drive, you can use for free a piece of shareware called WinZip 8.0 to crunch that fat word processing file small enough that you can copy it to a floppy on the old computer and then move it to the new one. WinZip can squeeze certain files (particularly straight word processor documents)

It's been too long - an agonizing 13 days - since we last published a photograph of Mayor Martin O'Malley performing with his band. There can never be enough pictures of Baltimore's mayor in a sleeveless T-shirt fronting his Irish rock band, O'Malley's Muscles. But some of you might have not saved for your O'Malley O'- Scrapbook every picture we have diligently published. The NBC-TV crew in town today to film the mayor for a spot to air during the Democratic convention may have missed them, too. So, in the self-interest of consumer relations, feel free to clip out the enclosed gallery of the very hottest in O'Malley pictures, complete with updated captions.

Digital cameras have left some folks behind. Shutterbugs have almost no limit on the number of pictures they take because storage is reusable and they can create perfect copies with the click of a button. That means they can mass-distribute pictures - no longer is photo-sharing reserved for people who happen to come by the house and flip through an album or for relatives who get copies of prints in the mail. Everybody gets your photos all the time. Everybody, that is, except people without computers.

Not long after Caitlyn McFadden began her Maryland lacrosse career, her mother realized that all the press clippings would never fit into one scrapbook. In her first Terrapins game, McFadden had three goals, three ground balls and two caused turnovers — a precursor to the National Midfielder of the Year she would become in 2009. "After her freshman year, I knew there was no way it was all going to go into one scrapbook," Mary Clare McFadden said. "All the way back to high school even, I think I knew it was going to be more than one. Just the whole drawer full of stuff I had collected and she hadn't even gone to college yet."

Last hurrah With his wild beard, love for beer and passionate gesticulations from the upper deck, Wild Bill Hagy taught a generation of Baltimoreans what it meant to be a fan. Hagy, who died in August at 68, was the face of a rowdy Memorial Stadium crowd that helped propel the Orioles to improbable comebacks in the late 1970s and early 1980s. When he stood and began forming with his arms the letters "O-R-I-O-L-E-S," thousands knew it was time to deliver some magic. Hagy was a cabdriver by day but rarely missed a game by night, until he stormed out to protest a new rule preventing fans from bringing beer to the park.

YOU KNOW A GREAT LOVE letter when you get one. It's the one that still makes you feel weak in the knees when you read it for the hundredth time. Recognizing a great love letter isn't hard. Writing one is, because it doesn't have anything to do with the right paper or the proper grammar or complete sentences. David Lowenherz, who edited The 50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time, says he doesn't have a clue what stationery the love letters in his book were written on. "It's the phrasing that matters, the deep sense of caring, the belief in the other person."

Do you have shoeboxes filled with playbills, movie-ticket stubs and graduation programs that you can't bear to throw away? Are your honeymoon pictures languishing in the camera? Maybe it's time to book them. In the last half-dozen years, scrapbooking has become a popular hobby, with stores, Web sites and clubs springing up for those set on documenting their lives in colorful and creative ways. "You get addicted to it," says Barbara Ominsky, a former elementary school teacher who opened a scrapbook store, Great Scraps, in Millersville 3 1/2 years ago. In a back room of the store recently, nine enthusiasts - eight women and one man - were gathered in a class to hear Grace Gede talk about using textured paper.

"Mort Walker's Private Scrapbook: Celebrating a Life of Love and Laughter" by Mort Walker (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 323 pages, $29.95). If the United States had official National Living Cultural Treasures and also had a national sense of humor, Mort Walker surely would be high on the list. Beetle Bailey -- with Sarge and other archetypal military antiheroes -- lives on, apparently immortal. Hi and Lois still lead the pack of family comic strips -- neck and neck with Blondie and Dagwood.

At the tender age of 6, Isaac Yohn knows how it feels for a kid to miss his daddy. He knows how it feels to pray, night after night, for him to come home safely from war. And he knows how it feels to finally wrap his arms around his hero, once again. But Isaac didn't always know these things. Starlight, star bright, Keep my daddy safe tonight. My daddy is in Iraq, Please hurry and bring him back. After living without his father for a year - save for a two-week visit last summer - Isaac, with the help of his mother, Debbie, has published a 22-page book that he hopes will help other children who have parents away at war. "I hope it helps remind them of their dads and moms," the precocious Manchester boy said.

Imagine a high-school prom where anyone can dance with the captain of the football team or the head cheerleader (or both), where you can drink alcoholic beverages (for a price), where there aren't any chaperones and you can make up for whatever went wrong at your own prom. According to Ken Davenport, creator and director of The Awesome 80s Prom -- which begins performances at the Hippodrome's M&T Bank Pavilion tomorrow -- that's part of the thinking behind this interactive show, in its second year in New York.
