Is there a list of types of graphs, charts and diagrams somewhere?

Has someone made a list of all the types of charts/graphs/visualization types say from the books by Bretin / Tufte / Tukey etc? Wikipedia has something similar here: Diagrams or Charts. The idea is a simple list of graph names/techniques that one can quickly scan through while planning an infoviz. Anyone?

Help Me Create A Dateless Timeline(s)

I'd like to create a project timeline guide that does not have dates. It is a general guide which indicates at what point in the process a certain action takes place. The timeline would actually be more comprised of several different time lines that overlap. Timelines a, b, and c (etc) wouldn't correspond to individuals but rather larger tasks that are occuring concurrently. I also would need to easily be able to export/print this timeline. My question is: is there a free program that I can use to create this? I have access to photoshop and illustrator but I'd rather not use those. I'm using a Mac running 10.5

Can you help me find a chart I once saw online that ranked countries by how many other countries its citizens could enter without a visa. I believe Finland and the U.S. came out on the top--most Middle Eastern countries near the bottom. Can anyone help me find this again? I'm pretty sure it was from a research institution or think tank.

Name this fancy chart

Is there a special name for a this type of chart, in this case it is one showing the nuclear fuel recycling capability of a CANDU reactor? Or do I just call it a flowchart, that happens to have a very visually appealing way of showing a complex cycle?

Fondness of O.P.P.

Good streaming charts of market prices

Finance: Where can I find streaming charts showing market indexes, plus currencies and NYMEX commodities/futures? Delayed data is ok; I'd just like good charts that update and which show the commodities/metals too. A lot of the charts I found don't update or don't have NYMEX.

The Drive to Nowhere

This may be an easy one (at least I hope so - and no, it hasn't been easy for me). Is there a site, or more than one site, that is somewhat devoted to compatibilities in hardware? I'm looking at notebook cdrw/dvd-rom (slim) drives and it would be nice to know which models will - ostensibly, anyway - work with which laptops. Help if you can. Thanks.

Custom PivotChart reverts to standard type when modified

Good modern songs aboot God.

What are some of the most overtly religious modern pop/rock/mainstream songs that sound great, and more importantly believable, in their devotion rather than jusy cringeworthy or preachy? Preachy titles also welcomed for comparison.

I'm looking for a Windows player that will draw a network diagram between entities and automatically arrange them on the page.

I'm looking for software that can draw a kind of "network diagram", showing the all the links between entities, and arranging the entities/lines automatically on the page. For instance, I've always wanted to draw a big diagram showing everyone I know, then draw lines between the people I know who know each other. Ideally, I'd like to be able to enter, simply, each persons name, and a list of all the people they know, and have it generate the diagram from that. I see this kind of thing all the time on the web - diagrams of what sites link to each other, or what bands sound like each other - but is there a simple Windows program that will do the same thing?

Nurse's Codes?

You know the chart they hang on the end of hospital beds? Apparently there's a myth that nurses put 2 letter codes on these that describe the characteristics of the patient that annoy/irritate/disgust them most. Has anyone heard of these?
