My son's biological father has friended me on Facebook. What next?

My 8 year old son has never met his biological father and would like to do so. I don't want his heart to break if his bio-father doesn't want contact. I'm only assuming that he doesn't want contact because apart from the befriending we haven't actually said anything to each other via voice or email for about 6 years or so. What is the best way to approach this? [more inside]

I need a specific CMS that allows each user to edit one part of a page.

Which Howard Hughes biographies are worth the time? Why--accuracy or entertainment?

BioFilter. Saw The Aviator last night. My natural instinct after seeing a decent bio-pic is to find and read an actual biography of the subject, but I'm having difficulty discerning just which of the available Howard Hughes biographies are worth my time. So I ask you ... can anyone recommend a Hughes bio? Furthermore, do any of you have a favorite biography in your collection? If so, what makes it worthwhile? Accuracy or entertainment?

Vanity Wikipedia Edits

What is the proper netiquette for editing a Wikipedia entry about yourself? I just stumbled upon mine recently. Since it is written in the third person there is the presumption of objectivity. But then, it is my life, and I am the world's expert on it. What would you do?

VW Biodiesel in USA

Fuel Filter? Has anybody had long-term experience using North American bio-diesel in a TDI? My dealership is dead-set against it, but my European friends swear by it. (I tend to distrust my VW dealer, but I don't want to be cavalier) Since I live in a moderately cold climate, I would only be using it in summer.

Good hard sf or biography book suggestions

I'm in the process of trying to buy Christmas presents for my father and his wife. My father likes science fiction (hard, mostly) and I've had luck with Vernor Vinge and Neal Stephenson in the past. His wife... doesn't, although I am told she likes biographies. Can anyone recommend some good hard sf or biographies that might go over well?
