Is there a website that has graphs of stock price in non-quoted currency

Is there a finance website that can plot historical and current graphs of a stock price in a currency other than that of its local exchange, e.g. the stock price of IBM in USD multiplied by the (moving, not current!) EUR:USD exchange rate? If this is easy to do on Google or Yahoo Finance then I'm obviously missing something!

Help me create a visualization of a corporate family tree

How do I simplify my graph?

Math/CS majors: What algorithms are out there to do "approximate reductions for weighted graphs"? This is a term I made up, but basically I have a 200,000 node graph with weighted edges and I want to reduce it so I can see clusters and/or patterns. I know of SUBDUE, but it only works for unweighted graphs.

Mates per human?

I'm trying to track down a graph I once saw in a book - pretty sure it was an evolutionary psychology book - that compared the ratio of number of mates/sexual partners with either brain or body size among primates. Humans fell somewhere in the middle, at about 2.5 mates each (i.e. an argument about how "natural" monogamy is to our species.) Any ideas?

What's the best way to make an ellipse (rather than bubble) chart in Excel?

Let's say I want to make a chart that's like an excel bubble chart, but I don't want the size of the bubble to vary depending on a third variable. Instead, I want the width of each bubble to vary by some amount, and the height of each bubble to vary by a different amount. [more inside]

Looking for books or resources on basic practical graph theory

Graph theory seems hot right now. Don't know much about it, though. If one wanted to learn some of the most practical, useable, and interesting results from the field where would one turn? Bonus points for applicability in social sciences and/or web apps. And, tangentially, if one was potentially interested in focusing on graph theory and the social sciences, where would one look at grad school? [more inside]
