I'm a low- to medium-grade computer techie. I've recently fallen in love with the remote desktop concept (I've been using TeamViewer). I have my main PC with all my data and the software I use, setup how I like it, and then remote into that from mobile devices, friend's computers, work computers, etc., even my laptop I now prefer to use as a portal into my main PC.

MS Access / relational database question. I'm trying to set up a database for a gradebook for multiple classes, that I can maintain indefinitely. I've got the basics in terms of tables for students, classes, etc. But in my ideal world, I'll be able to do item analysis, too -- like seeing what proportion of students got Question 17 correct on a certain exam, or pulling up the specific items that a student missed on Exam 3. The only way I can think of to get this level of detail is with a junction table that has a separate record matching up each test item with each student for each exam. Of course this will eventually swell into hundreds of thousands of records (students * test items * exams * classes * years). Am I thinking about this correctly? Is there a better way of designing this? Are there any examples you can point me to of databases that accomplish similar things? Thanks!

I want to turn a short play into a short film.

In a few days my uni library is going to cut off my sweet, sweet access to its electronic resources, including full text e-journals and online references like OED. I can get an alumni account for $50 a year, but that only gives me physical borrowing rights, not e-resources. Does anybody offer comprehensive access to full-text online journals to non-students for a fee? I don't have a particular field in mind - I want it all. I'm an Australian in Australia, if it matters.

I'm interested in dishwashing practices in the developing world. If you were one of roughly the half of the people in the world without running water in your home, how might you wash your dishes? What kind of set up would you have? Are sinks common even if you collect water from a public well or water truck? Or would you have a washbasin/plastic tub? On a countertop, table, or floor? Cloth or tarp outside? Would you use non-potable water to do the washing up? Save the graywater for next time or for other cleaning tasks? [more inside]

I'm an environmental scientist. I just received an email from a group called "Intech Open Access Publisher", referencing one of my papers, and asking me if I'd like to submit a chapter for a book. My first thoughts were "Oh man, I didn't think that paper was that great...". My second thoughts were "Hmm...I bet this is a form email sent out to thousands of researchers based on a keyword search, and it may well be a waste of time to submit an abstract." Has anyone else had experience in this sort of thing? Is it legit?
I've just successfully installed Win7 onto an older but servicable PC in order to use it as a streaming media player in another room.

Thanks in advance!
