Maximizing Broadband

I just recently signed up for a 3 months broadband trial and was wondering what online resources I could access to get the best value out of it. I am looking forward to the great choice of Radio Stations and archived programmes, but what other value could I get from it to make it worthwhile. I dont have a television and would like to get max entertainment value from it as well as anything else you think worthwhile.

Buying a KVM

I need a solid, 8-port USB rackmount KVM. I do not need PS/2 support, nor a KVM that cheats by converting PS/2 to USB, which does not work with Sun or Apple servers. I can do a Google search, but does anyone have recommendations? I'm on a budget and can spend about $500 or so.

Threesome etiquette

While in Vegas talking about the presence of legalized prostitution, my partner (female) broached the subject of a threesome (thus making it two girls and one man, myself). After I ascertained she wasn't joking, I realized I didn't have the first clue about how/whether to actually make it happen (i.e. how to get in touch with a call girl who does couples, what the proper etiquette is, how much would it actually cost, how to make sure you're getting a relatively attractive girl, potential pitfalls I wasn't seeing, whether my girlfriend would actually collapse into a ball of shame afterwards, etc). Does anyone have personal experience with this sort of situation, or have resources to direct me to regarding the logistics of couples with call girls? My girlfriend explicitly said she would only do it with a paid girl because then we'd never see her again and there would be no aspect of jealousy involved, so friends are out of the question. Please only respond with serious answers (esp. to the specific questions above), since I can think of snarky jokes on my own...

PS2, GameCube, or XBox?

Well, the time appears to have finally come. With my kids starting to cross over the 10 threshold I am on the verge of caving in on the gaming console issue. As a kid who wanted an Atari 2600 but got a TI-99/4a it took me a while to realize that gaming consoles are now pretty much part of the background recreation matrix/social experience of kids and not an extravagant extra. Anyway, they get good grades and I wound up working for a while as a game programmer and it did not kill me.

So parenting aside, I was wondering if anyone could suggest some good sources of information on the three major platforms (XBox, GameCube, PS2). The kids told me that their friends mostly have PS2s and that they like the GameCube, but I just want to make sure that, say, in February the next generation of platform hardware won't come out and they stop production of titles for what we get. FWIW their tastes are Backyard sports games, Civilization 3, and Hobbit/Harry Potter type games -- but they remind me that playing those and Zaxxon on the family PC do not a gaming system make. Oh, and there any must-have accessories that we should take care of up front? Cheers.
