After seeing and reading about the death of parents, one of the biggest regrets seems to be not knowing them better. I have a cordial but distance relationship from my parents and while I don't ever see us being BFFs, I would like to know them better as people and their life. How do I do this, considering I live 6 states away? [more inside]

I once had a to-do list, things I wanted to achieve/experience by the time i turned 30:
Establish a rewarding career / Travel / Find some degree of success with my music / Learn to swim / Get into a sport, get fit / Have a few close friends...
So, I've just turned 40 & I still have not managed to do any of these things.
And now I feel I am running out of time... [more inside]

Is an MBA worth getting? I've seen a lot of talk to the contrary lately, and most of the MBAs that I know don't seem to be doing work now that particularly requires an MBA, so I'm wondering if it's just a waste of time and money compared to just gaining more work experience? I was thinking of getting an MBA as a way to shift into less pure-IT related work, since I can't seem to get rehired as a developer after a long absence.
