I'd like to get a gift for my neighbour, as we're moving out soon. They've invited us over for "A Banquet" to say bye (which is fab!). Pertinent details: she's friendly, about 60ish, Islamic, from Bangladesh, she likes growing vegetables. She's been a good neighbour over the last 7 years, but partly due to the language barrier, I haven't a clue what she likes to do. Any suggestions? [more inside]

My wife's brother graduates from art school this weekend. The family chipped in and bought him a MacBook, his first new computer and first Mac. He's wicked talented and a natural tinkerer, but I get the sense he's not that computer-savvy. He's a printmaker, painter, and music freak, and his many talents skew to the analog. I registered his name as a domain and I'm going to give it to him as a gift, and I wanted to give him a CD or something with some links and free software to get him started. What would you recommend for a dude like this?
