I like to have a glass of whisky and read and write on weekday evenings. I'm looking for quiet bars (or licensed cafes) where I can hole up with a laptop and/or book. Does such a thing exist? [more inside]

Dad has a bookcase of Harvard Classics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvard_Classics) his dad bought in 1910. Would like to give them to someone or an organization. They're not too rare; plenty on ebay. I'm googled out. Don't want to throw them away. Thanks.

I'll have what's more-or-less equivalent to an eleven hour layover in Boston on Wednesday, Feb. 17 from around 6am to around 5pm. I'll be on foot and starting from the Boston Sheraton/Prudential Center. Bearing in mind that I'll either be pulling a carryon or need somewhere to stash it, what should I do with my time there? Note also that I'm an undergrad elsewhere, so if there are any neat events going on on campus (especially MIT or Harvard), I probably wouldn't stand out TOO much attending. I'm also up for meeting local MeFites.

Are there any professors in the Boston area (especially Harvard) that have an avowed interest in alternate history or have authored books (fiction or non) on the subject?

What is this drawing/painting/print I saw? It is in Grendel's Den at Harvard Square. It involves dog and a fancy dinner. [more inside]

We're meant to do all of our University assignments with Harvard Referencing. Easy enough. However I've grown used to using Word's system of managing references and it does all the updating itself for any changes I make - has anyone got any ideas how to get Word 2007 (or 2003 / XP) to do the referencing? My Google-fu has failed me so far.

I have a nephew who will be attending Harvard this fall. Any advice for one who was raised on a farm in a small farm town to ease transition. [more inside]

Harvard students, staff, faculty & visitors: Where's the good lettering? I'm looking for recommendations for the best engraved lettering, printing, calligraphy and other lettering on your campus in preparation for an upcoming visit. The type of stuff I am talking about: like the inscriptions on the Harvard Gates, or the Eric Gill piece downstairs in the memorial chapel. Any suggestions?
For that matter, any typographic or chirographic must-sees in Boston and Cambridge overall?

Who is responsible for the wonderful type engraved in stone seen on gated walls around the Harvard campus? I am not talking about architectural lettering, but about the several quotes engraved in slabs of smooth stone and mounted in the walls separating various parts of the campus. The work looks contemporary, or at least very well-cared-for.

Referencing dvd commentaries using the Harvard Bibliographic system. I've looked around online and although many pages tackle similar items I haven't been able to find anything satisfactory.
