My subset of the Library of Congress

I'd like to put a personal library of around 200 books in order by the Library of Congress Classification System. I plan to take them off my shelves then scan all of their ISBNs for inclusion on LibraryThing... Then what? How do I get LCC numbers from ISBN numbers for ordering/labeling? How should I label them?

What's in a name? Some MX records, email headers, cat pictures.

The problem is that I have an extremely generic name and all the usual suspects are taken. Please suggest or help me find something distinct and foolproof for email. [more inside]

Make the computer magic!

Personal Library Filter: Over the last couple of years, I've been helping an elderly couple with their massive book collection. After a lot of searching, I ended up finding BookCAT which seemed to be great. But these people really want to have lots of print-outs. (The husband does not use the computer at all.) BookCAT is way too complicated for even me in this regard. What else is there? [more inside]

How do I share my phone’s internet connection with multiple computers on a wireless home network?

Dear Metafilter Community, I live in a house full of roommates and I am trying to share my phone’s internet connection on our network so that everyone in the household may have an internet connection.

Christmas Betrayal! Or not?

I have a problem with a broken Christmas promise. My girlfriend and I agreed that since money was tight, we would not buy gifts for each other. We would purchase gifts for family. Children, parents, siblings. But we would only buy for others. Not for us. Then my girlfriend bought me an iPod Touch. While I certainly love the gift I feel that I should now buy her something, even though she insists that I do not. I'm thinking that since the agreement was broken (granted with love) I have the right to purchase her a gift. (With love) But OTOH, would that be loving, or tit for tat? Am I overthinking this? Is it a given that I get her a gift? Or should I just accept my gift and leave it alone, and in my mind maybe be missing some signal of some sort? While money is tight, it isn't so bad that I couldn't get her something. It doesn't have to be the same amount, but I'd feel like crap if I didn't get her a gift now. Help!

Boombox Cinema

By 1989 the boombox had established a fairly stable place in the pantheon of pop culture cinema, with the releases of both Do the Right Thing and Say Anything. Can you remember seeing (and hearing!) the machine in earlier films? I'm especially interested to learn its earliest appearances.

Personal financial software recommendations

I use MS Money which is being discontinued by Microsoft. Can you recommend a replacement based on firsthand experience. The obvious is Intuit, but I'm finding mixed reviews on using it for personal finances. I basically want to track spending (downloading bank and credit card data), and to sort and analyze spending for income tax and budgeting purposes. I don't really care about managing a portfolio with real time data through internet connectivity, nor do I need to make financial investment decisions. Thanks!

What to do with $1000USD

A charity gave me $1,000 USD they raised for me after a drunk driver wiped me and my motorcycle out. I am 56 yrs. old, sick from cancer and will be losing my job in December. I have little savings and will have to work at whatever my body lets me do, and probably lose my health insurance. I plan on selling my home and its contents and downsizing to a studio apartment. I have no credit card debt but hold two mortgages, both will be a wash at the sale. What is the best bang for my buck for this $1000 in this economy? A CD? Online savings account? Any suggestions?
