I want to teach myself computer science. I know that teaching myself is far from a university education on the subject, but I'd like to try. How can I teach myself? What are books/lectures/tools/websites/anything that I could use to do this? Covering everything from the programming languages themselves, to algorithms, software development, and the mathematics background necessary for this. [more inside]

How do I get something other then a floppy drive to show up as the a: drive in Windows 2000? It could be a USB jump drive or a mapped drive, it doesn't matter so long as it's not a floppy. I have an old legacy application that only loads its data from a:, and it's driving me insane keeping stacks of floppies around.

Does anyone know if there's a way to pull the height and width of a flash movie's stage out of an SWF using PHP/Perl or some other server side script? Is that information even stored in the swf files, or do "the vectors" make it irrelevant?
I want to get information about an existing SWF, not create new ones, so things like freemovie don't help. (Unless they do)
