How do police departments use/search partial license plate information in their investigations? Or incomplete information about cars generally? [more inside]

I know everybody asks this (and I've read through the previous questions looking for recommendations), but what should I watch next? Preferably on Netflix or Hulu Plus (not web only). In general, I tend to like: mysteries/crime procedurals/law dramas, especially with a quirky twist, and also shows involving a quirky band of misfits (or individual) working outside the law to bring justice to the little people while finding out who done them wrong (e.g. the A-Team, Burn Notice, The Pretender, etc.) I also like heist shows and sci-fi. And occasionally anime. [more inside]

*Spoiler Alert*Never Read This Thread (but none within the question itself): I am hoping to create a set of custom original miniature series "arcs", highlighting various things; characters/topics/ story-arcs/plot-arcs... any sort of "shortening of a longer series" that you love, or like or know.

Looking for examples of this trope: low key but doggedly determined cop in a small/medium sized town. Personal problems. A close-knit community. A series of murders that ultimately point to a much bigger story than anyone expected. His personal life unravels and ravels as he investigates, treading on eggshells as he goes. Emphasis much less on the procedural aspects than the emotional. Genre thriller as opposed to mystery (ie the cop protagonist is in personal jeopardy). [more inside]

Does anyone know of a book (site, magazine, DVD, anything) that, preferrably communicated in a non-specific programming language (e.g. - pseudocode, if possible), illustrates real world pros and cons of procedural vs. OOP coding and vice versa?
I don't want a religous war on why one is better than the other; but rather a (fairly) objective look at both with the who/what/where/when/why/how of any specific reasons for more efficient use of either.
