Trip to DC

I'm planning a trip to DC in June and wondering what areas are safe & not so safe? Also hotels are very expensive so can anyone suggest a hotel (staying a week) in or around DC that is convenient to the Metro and again a safe area and not so expensive as to dry out your bank account? Any tips about DC in general?

What to read to understand the city of Washington DC?

DC-area-history-filter! I'm about to move back to the US, where I will be either in DC or North Virginia (working in Ashburn, specifically). I like having a sense of the history that contributed to the physical environment around me. Why is this town here, who built what building, why, and what does the allegory in the decoration mean. Things like that. What books, articles, or whatever should I read to understand these qualities about my upcoming home?

How long would the drive from New Haven to Washington, D.C., take on Wednesday evening?

Pinout for this ancient xenon arc lamp power supply?

Recently I obtained (for work-related use) an older arc lamp power supply. It's a Zeiss unit brand-wise but was manufactured by Ludl Electronic Products (LEP) on Zeiss' behalf. It may well turn out that this particular supply isn't suited to our needs (based on the lamp we want to use it with), but I would still like to find some way to determine the pinout of the output connector. Unfortunately, I've had a heck of a time finding ANY schematics for 75 W DC xenon short arc lamp power supplies, and despite my EE degree, I remain baffled following *mumble* weeks worth of ohming-out and circuit-tracing. And at this point I've been staring at the darned thing so long that it's become hard to tell if I'm missing something really obvious or whether it's just futile to expect to be able to determine what pin serves what purpose without a schematic. Long, convoluted explanation beyond the "more inside" button. [more inside]
