Is there a good standard language for specifying complex date expressions, e.g. '4th Fridays in month that are not last Fridays', or '3d workday in year', or 'every other Thursday except holidays'? [more inside]

The other interface builder

A little while ago, before my last reformat, I had just found a really slick tool for generating interfaces/skeleton implementations for Objective-C classes. I can't recall the name, but it (I think) integrated with Xcode, and made programming easier. My google-fu has failed me, here. Help me, Askme, you're my only hope! [more inside]

How can I find a computer guru to help me improve my programming skills?

I'm a full time webmaster running a news website on the Internet. The more popular my site becomes, the more my technical shortcomings are becoming clear to me. I don't have the money to hire out the work, so I want to build up my own skills (PHP, MySQL, Linux, XML, etc). Where can I find an inexpensive technical guru who can mentor me from afar and bring my skills up.

User Permission Encoding

Managing User Permissions: I'm reworking an existing system that has a fairly granular permission system and am looking to make it easier to use. At the risk of sounding like a complete clown1, I've recently seen at least one OS permission system where permissions are encoded with ids that are (I think) all powers of 2, which allows the system to discern whether a user has access to a given permission from the sum of the user's permission ids. Can someone explain how this works? [more inside]

Compulsory PHP instruction

I've received a $1000 grant that I can use to learn PHP, in order to eventually write an education-specific application. I could attend a programming boot camp this Summer, take an online course, or blow it all on books and software. Of course, I have a bunch of php/mysql books already. Has anyone gone to one of those programming boot camps, and was it worth it?

creating simple biofeedback software

I'm trying to create a simple biofeedback program that will display a real-time graph of the user's heart rate. But instead of using actual pulse monitor hardware as the input the user would just take their pulse with one hand and simultaneously press enter with the other hand each time they feel a pulse. Then I would like this data to be displayed in beats per minute on the Y-axis. This seems like a very simple program. The problem is I'm really not sure where to start and know very little about programming. The closest I've come to programming is using Excell and messing around in Flash. Does anyone know if there are easy to use programming tools that would enable me to create a program like the one I've described or if there are already existent programs similar to this? Thanks alot.

OO programming in Autocad?

I have developed an application in AutoLISP which I would like to re-write in an OO language. AutoCAD seems to natively support VB but I don't think I want to go there. I am starting to learn C# and Python, and like both. How easy is it to link Autocad and C# or Python (or Ruby, etc.)? I am aware of PyCad but not sure I understand how to get it to work, plus it requires Autocad 2000 which is like requiring windows 95. In short, I am quite the newbie at this and would appreciate a simple but thorough explanation of how to use a modern programming language in Autocad.
