Looking for a community/forum where I can learn more about networking, code, security, and OS-independent CS topics

I'm looking for a forum where I can ask questions about networking, security, coding, operating systems, web design, etc. There are many of these out there, but I'd like to find a single community which covers all these topics more or less equally (so it isn't a Linux forum with a small section on BSD, or a coding forum with a small section on networking). I'd like it to be the sort of forum where users stay around for several years as they learn and contribute at different levels, with high literacy and education-to-spam levels. Could I have your recommendations please?

How to prevent confused elder from dismantling technology components.

An elderly relative, once technically savvy, now goes into fugue states where, in his confusion, he dismantles computer and A/V setups, with no one in the household to reconnect them properly. I'm looking for a way of securing A/V and computer connections while leaving the function of the devices still accessible. The alternative so far is spending endless hours with the cable company to get them to send someone to help, or paying someone else to come by. Phone instructions are no good, and there is no one in the household who can help.

IP cameras or security system

IP Cameras or security system? So, in a follow up to this question, we've moved into another house, also without a security system. (Much better neighborhood, and a watchful older neighbor across the street, however) The landlord is fine with us having a security system installed. However, my dad has an IP camera installed in his house, which takes photos of movement (also can track sound) and emails them to him. Which do you recommend - ip cameras or security system? Any suggestions for either? [more inside]

Desperate for Alternative Perspectives

How seriously should I take sexual attraction when choosing the person want to have a child with? Due to unique circumstances, I find myself with two clear and available options, wherein one potential partner has a great job and a gentle/humorous/intelligent nature, and the other potential partner has a freelance job and chooses to work less and focus more on passions and is compassionate/generous/inspiring. If my enjoyment with them, desire to help them, sense of understanding is all equal, and only the sexual desire aspect is lacking, how do I realistically approach this? [more inside]

Please help me configure and secure my Ubuntu-based combined home file server/public web server/VNC server!

Please help me configure and secure my Ubuntu-based combined home file server/public web server/VNC server! I am building a low-ish power home file server, which will likely run Ubuntu 11.04 or 11.10 (possibly server edition), and I should be able to set up a basic samba share easily enough. But I would also like to use the same computer to serve a few basic webpages, and I would like to provide ssh and ideally VNC or RDP-like access from outside the LAN. I can probably get the basic software set up, but I'm a n00b when it comes to NAT stuff, firewalls, and security issues generally. I would also appreciate help with setting up dynamic DNS.
