How about Discourse? I'm a touch biased, as it was created by our co-founder Coding Horror, (without whom I'd probably still be working as a finance exec, grinding orphans into money burgers for the rich to feed their pets,) but it seems to nail most of your criteria: It's open-source They offer (paid) hosting if you don't want to do it yourself It's a ...

I recently created a tool that does exactly this. http://www.rkursem.com/poll/ Here, you enter the following: Question you want to have a poll on. Whether the respondents can select one or multiple answers. Whether the respondents can choose from a fixed list or enter additional answers, which future users can then choose among or add another answer. A ...

An interesting alternative I found is isso. It can be hosted away from my static pages It integrates well It is free as in freedom. As for the other requirements: It is pretty easy to use It is coded in a well-known language, Python, which is a bit boring - not fine It stores comments in a sqlite database by default - not fine It does include a voting ...

I guess TEAMUP CALENDAR will be appropriate. It facilitates you to create, maintain and sharing group calendars, which the creators say differentiates it from Google Calendar. Using the color-coding options, planners can identify program tracks and their main page also says “no user account required”

Try Disqus. It's free, very easy to integrate into websites, and used by companies like CNN for their commenting systems. I use Disqus on all of my Wordpress installations, two of my Ghost installations and one static website - each of which took less than ten minutes to set up. One downside to Disqus is that it shows under a tab, "Around the Web" which is ...

Have you considered Pastebin for this task? It may not transfer directly from/to the clipboard, but it is simple enough to work with conveniently. If you need private text transfers I would recommend Google Keep, though keep in mind the contents of your clipboard would be on their servers.

Just a static site generator like Pelican or Jekyll would be sufficient, you write with a Markdown editor (I use MacDown personally), you generate the HTML files of your blog using a tool like Pelican or Jekyll, you host it for free on github pages, and then point your github page to your domain. For example, I ...

Short answer: No. In the FreeGameDevWiki you can find an up-to-date list of web services of FOSS music (CC:BY and CC:BY-SA). Of those, the only one I am familiar with is Jamendo, and while it does offer something called “radios”, I do not think that you can exclude non-FOSS music from them (all music is CC, but CC:BY and CC:BY-SA are definitely not the ...

Perhaps Trello will suit you? There is a free offering but you can pay for more features. Multiple 'boards', collaberation features (if that is of interest), and pretty straightforward to use. In short, you can create multiple boards, each board is typically divided in to swim-lanes or stacks, and each stack contains multiple cards. It's ideal for ...

Uniview can show characters as a graphic, hence it will work regardless of fonts installed on your system (as the browser needs the fonts too to display characters as characters and not images)
