How to watch the Mets while in Oakland

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.

Why Some Online Radio Streaming Doesn't Seem to Work Well

It seems that the streams of some online radio stations don't connect or don't stay connected. I have visited a lot of public radio stations and listened to their streams and often, they will drop out and reconnect unexpectedly. By contrast, Tune-in and some of the other pass thru services seem to always connect and manage to stay connected. Is Tune-in and other services better able to shake hands with my possibly out of date browser or is the problem not with me and instead, with the stations themselves, or somewhere in the middle?

Best website for market research? Difficulty: Australia

I have a couple of market research things I would like to survey segments of the population on, beyond who I know. What survey websites allow you to do this as an independent individual? Addendum: They need to have an option for Australia. (SurveyMonkey is the kind of thing I am looking for, but I'm shopping around in case there's a better option for what I'm doing in particular.)

Tips for online dating in the UK

I'm wondering what forms of online dating are most popular in the UK. I joined OKCupid but have only gotten copy-and-paste messages from creepy dudes and I get the impression that maybe this website is not as popular here as it is in the US (though I haven't used it in the US). Have dating websites become outdated? Is everyone on Tinder? Is Tinder only used for hooking up? Any thoughts or experiences with the current online dating scene would be appreciated.

Is there a red state MeFi-alike?

So I have an elderly relative who is struggling with profound hearing and speech difficulties, and I'm looking for an online community for him. MetaFilter would strike him as too liberal, too young, and somewhat too outré. He's not ignorant or unsophisticated, but his views are conservative and his interest in modern culture is, well, limited. Can anyone point me toward a U.S.-based site with an active group of thoughtful, high-quality commenters and a generally conservative slant on history, politics, and current events? [more inside]

9/11. Oy. Are there any active online support groups for 9/11 survivors?

Are there any active online support groups for 9/11 survivors? I was in midtown when the WTC was attacked in 2001. That brought on several days of stressful situations for myself and others in the city (evacuating due to bomb threats, going near the site only to run for your life because fears of other buildings falling near the site, etc). I coped as everyone else did in the city, and for the past several years I've avoided most if not all 9/11 coverage. This year, the anniversary passed without me realizing it - but then on the 12th I was reading an article about first responders lobbying congress and it sent me down a rabbit hole of watching (for the first time) life news footage of the attacks.
