is this a good use case for a gamma distribution?

I want to generate synthetic user-session data to predict how big a peak in application usage might be shortly before a weekly deadline (for timesheet submission - it's a time and labour tracking application). I've come up with a method that looks like it works - it involves a gamma distribution for the login time. But I don't have enough (in fact, any) statistical training to know whether I'm using that distribution meaningfully. Statisticians, please reassure me. Thanks! Excel functions inside...

More storage for some free Google Apps users only?

We use the free Google Apps at our non-profit for about 5 heavy users who have hit storage limits, 30 light and another 30+ who need to access our Google Drive and other domain-limited sites. Previously we switched heavy users to a new account with access to the previous account, plus forwards as a work-around. Google's helpdesk says upgrade only as we're non-US. Does anyone have a better solution? We use Google spreadsheets and several marketplace apps, and otherwise are super-happy with Google but $4000/annually is a big upgrade bill!

Psychic surgery - is it real or fake?

So I've been a spiritual healer for a couple of years now and I wonder what direction to steer it in. Whilst talking to a senior, she mentioned 'psychic surgery', but didn't go into it at all. And as soon as I type 'psychic surgery' into Google, I have a Wikipedia page saying it has been disproved. I know you shouldn't believe every word on Wikipedia, especially with subjects that are going to be relying on information from people with heavily biased views; in the same way that when you mention spiritual healing to some people they call it black magic and do not want to talk about it ever again with you.

Is The Gigs Place in Dublin gone for good?

Dubliners, or anyone who's been to Dublin recently and knows what I'm talking about: has The Gigs Place closed up shop for good? I'm pretty sure they have, but can't find anything more definitive than Yelp saying they're closed (Yelp has been wrong on that front before), and a lack of Facebook postings from 2013 on. Any other info would be helpful, for instance: was their building and/or late-night license taken up by someone else under a different name? Thanks in advance!

Is "green board" a known idiom or phrase?

Why is it so hard to find a women interested in long-term relationship?

I'm a male in my late 20's who's having trouble finding a woman to settle down with. I keep getting attracted to/and attracting women who are either not interested in serious relationships (only casual/physical relationships) or have some self-esteem issues/other problems that makes them very unstable/emotionally fluctuating. I wouldn't describe myself as overly attractive (very average looks and slim build) or promiscuous, so I'm kind of puzzled by how and why these women feel attracted to me. [more inside]

Should I get a cookbook on Kindle for iPad or stick with paperback?

I'm in my early twenties and new at cooking, but can follow directions so that's a start. I'm just wondering whether I should buy a kindle version of a cookbook or stick with the paperback. I have limited storage space, which makes a kindle version very appealing. On the other hand, slightest slickness of the finger might not mix well with flipping pages on an iPad, not that I'd be handling my paperback slick with meat juice or something either.
