How to say no even though I can say yes?

I have a troubled half brother who has recently come into my life. He was just released from prison, there on possession charges. He lives across the country, is jobless, homeless, and without family (aside from my mother and me). Yesterday he asked if I could wire him money. Just enough to buy some food. I can easily do this, so without thinking, I said I would. [more inside]

Help us find this for new parents, by new parents!

Mrs. Pairofshades and I are expecting a baby and would like to read up on parenthood. I came across one book in paticular, in about 2005, that I would love to find and read again. It was from a series based on personal anecdotes from parents who had just gone through the stage the book focused on: in this case it was the first year of parenthood. Some details below the fold.

Service like Optimizely's visual editor to design site?

I've learned that Optimizely has a pretty neat editor for designing a/b tests and that you can use the editor to do lots of fast and easy re-designs without modifying a site's code. Are there any services that solely focus on the "use our editor to re-design your site and paste this javascript to implement the design" bit?

Name this book filter?

Very vaguely remembered. UK paperback. Probably in the early 1970's London city businessman, company director living in a penthouse or private office apartment has a chinese mistress. For some reason he ends up digging a long ditch out in the country and this becomes a self realization. Very vague I know.

Find past unlock codes for iPhone?

I've forgotten the PIN for my credit card. It was the same as the 'swipe to unlock' code for my iPhone 5 (running iOS 7), three codes ago (ie, I've changed it twice since then). I thought I remembered the PIN, and tried to make this my new unlock code, hoping it would say 'nope, too recent' and I'd say 'a ha, that's it', but no luck (and now I have a new number to remember). Is there a way I can view past unlock codes for my iPhone? [more inside]

Fiddly Wordpress customization help

I am looking to get a wordpress theme with built-in icons for post types (such as sorbet, but I'm open to using another one to make this easier) to use icons based on categories or tags instead. There is a plugin for this but it doesn't work with the current version of WP and I don't think it's set up to replace part of an existing theme anyway. (It would also be nice if I could customize the color on those bar things too.) Despite my ambitions for awesome blog layout customization, I know very little about CSS and basically haven't coded anything for the web since we all used Netscape Navigator. How do I do this?
