I have a family member with Alzheimer's and I would like some help with gadget or engineery birthday presents for him. I always bought him books before as he was a reader and a novelist, but he says he can't concentrate enough to read now and I'm stuck! [more inside]
I'm trying to get a list of things (equations, theories, etc) we know about poker or gambling in general in terms of scientific or mathematic principles. It can't just be game theory. it's got to be specific aspects of it. And I mean ANY aspects of it. Hot hands. Beginner's luck. Inside straights.
My lovely husband has a dream of owning a foosball table and covering it with stickers. He's amassed the sticker collection. Help me find the foosball table ? [more inside]
I am interested in taking a Caribbean cruise but not spending every penny that I have. As such, I am wondering how much it realistically costs to do a cruise, on a line like Carnival or Royal Caribbean, if I do it "middle of the road" in terms of extras. In other words, I would do a lot of the free stuff, but pay for some extras--occasional non-included meals, drinks, and fun. Do you have any thoughts about what it realistically would cost to do, for example a 5-day cruise? How to maximize fun on a budget? Other tips?

Working from home today and would like to listen to some commentary and analysis of the first round of the NFL draft (interested in the whole draft, actually). Recommendations for the best sports radio show I can stream and maybe an upcoming sports podcast focusing on the draft greatly appreciated.
I'm visiting my sister and her family for the weekend. My (almost) seven year old nephew is obsessed with Star Wars and I have been informed that my visit will be dominated by same. I'm totally fine with this. In fact, I'd like to bring him even MORE Star Wars! [more inside]
I, a New Yorker, will be spending the month of May in Oakland, CA. What are my (legal) options for watching the Mets on my computer? (The home where I'm staying has no TV.) I am a Time Warner cable customer. Also happy to hear suggestions for East Bay bars that are likely to carry Mets games, but watching at home is my top priority.
As seen previously, I've been working on expanding my artistic endeavors to actually selling stuff. My application to a local outdoor craft/art/vintage marketplace has been accepted so I now have under a month to get a booth together. I am at a loss. Help! [more inside]
I've signed up to host a grown up game show party this weekend, but life got in the way and now I'm a little under-prepared with content. I could use your ideas! [more inside]
How do you keep reminders of potential events you might want to go to, or activities you might want to participate in, so that you actually take advantage of these opportunities? [more inside]

In a fit of "I can do ALL THE FUN THINGS!" I signed up to run three very different types of games that I love at Gen Con this August. Problem: I have only ever played these games, never run them. Additional problem: One of these games is heavy on improv, and I'm starting to get antsy about that. Looking for seasoned advice, specific resources, and hearty encouragement. [more inside]
So, my boyfriend and his friends enjoy playing boardgames together, especially ones regarding strategy (Settlers of Catan, Risk, etc.).They own a lot of modern boardgames, so for a gift, I wanted to get him a few fun vintage ones that they probably won't have played before. What vintage boardgames or other games have you played that you enjoyed most, especially those that are uncommon or no longer available today (except on Ebay)? [more inside]
I'm running some 2nd edition modules for a group of Dungeons and Dragons players, levels 1-4, and could use some suggestions for more! World/realm unimportant, but we aren't doing anything too non-mainstream (like spelljammer) [more inside]
A chess program I have allows users to build and customize their own engine, which is like the brain the computer uses when playing. Every time I open the engine to work on it, a box pops up that says "Hash Tables" on the top, then "1026 MB free memory" below it, then below that there's a box with a blank space for me to type in how many megabytes I want to use. Could someone please explain to me what "hash tables" are, and what effect(s), if any, allocating more or less free MB's to the engine will have?
I crave to play a game with trading as the main mechanic. Maybe I'm some merchant in Venice trying to work my way up to Doge. Is there anything out there like that? [more inside]
Sometime this millennium I read a book. I think it was written recently and was supposed to be the first of a series. It was about a future where people somehow could enter into parallel universes and would be filmed for exciting television shows back on real earth. [more inside]
