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?

What will happen after PhD programs (hopefully) accept me?

Who is Eagleson and where did Eagleson's law originate?

Programmers soon learn that
“Any code of your own that you haven't looked at for six or more months might as well have been written by someone else.”
This maxim, generally cited as “Eagleson's Law [of Programming]” (and often extended “Eagleson is an optimist; the real number is more like 3 weeks”) has been floating around the internet for ages*. But who is Eagleson, and where did this notion originally appear? [more inside]

What's a cool idea for a website with a database?

Asking-for-a-friend-filter: my friend is doing Bachelor's in Computer Science and has a final year project to the tune of 'website with database'. He doesn't want to make something as generic as a regular shopping website; so any interesting, offbeat ideas for database websites would be more than welcome. Catch: Shouldn't be very difficult. And should be SFW.

I "fell into" a programming job right out of college. It is mainly C#, quite a bit of Javascript, all within the .Net environment. I noticed a lot of jobs are very specific on technologies used (such as Struts/Java). Would it be okay to apply for these jobs? How do I represent myself? [more inside]

Getting off the ground with bioinformatics?

I'm a final year biochemistry undergrad, and through my internships / reading of papers / etc, I've become keenly aware that I'd like to be more conversant with computer science approaches to the field. The sheer volume of approaches and strategies in bioinformatics is a little overwhelming, though: where's a good place to start focusing my attention? I have strong maths skills, but my programming ability is limited to pecking out simple instruction sets in Python or Matlab, and my research work thus far has mostly been on isolating and characterising protein markers from serum / urine / etc.

What top 10 techie lists do you know of?

What "top n techie" lists do you know of? I'm specifically after lists of the movers and shakers in the tech scene, rather than the cutest a la Violet Blue, but hottest geek lists are also interesting.
