What to do for my birthday, during Carmageddon?

My birthday is on the 18th and I plan on taking Monday off to make it a long weekend. But that happens to be the weekend of Carmageddon. Which, if you don’t live near Los Angeles, is when all hell will break loose because 10 miles of freeway will be closed for a Saturday and a Sunday. Truly the end of the world. [more inside]

New York State Law: Why would a self-proving affidavit be rejected by the probate court, and what can be done about it?

My father passed away in February, and left a very simple will - a 50/50 split between my sister and myself. His estate is very small, so we are trying to keep legal fees down as much as possible. The will and supporting documentation have been submitted to the NY probate court. One of the probate clerks is objecting to an irregularity in the self proving affidavit that's holding up the whole process. (The will itself seems to be sound.) Somehow this affidavit was screwed up by the notary. [more inside]

I have recently become the defacto sysadmin for a number of Ubuntu machines, and it has become painfully obvious that I don't really know what I'm doing. Can you recommend resources for me to better understand how Linux works?

"BOOM BOOM beep beep beep." Quick, what is this song?

If the song is in 4/4, then the "BOOMs" are on the 1 & 2 beats, and the three "beeps" are a triplet across the 3 & 4 beats. [more inside]

Two baking questions

1) All of my chocolate cookie recipes yield cookies that are gooey and soft and wonderful just out of the oven, but not as wonderful once they (inevitably) cool and become crusty and hard. What's the key to keeping cookies soft and moist? 2) A recipe calls for self-raising flour but all I have is all-purpose flour. Is there a way to turn the latter into the former, or do I need to make a run to the store?

Where to rent near Tulsa, Oklahoma

Apartment hunting in Tulsa. We're tired of the Alaskan winters and are contemplating a move to Tulsa this fall. We've got a couple of friends in the area and a job that is lined up (downtown area) but we don't know what areas of the city to look for apartments/houses. We've heard good things about Broken Arrow, but not much else. We'd like to be close to shopping, entertainment, biking/walking trails, and preferably a dog park nearby. We'd like to avoid horrible traffic if possible but don't mind a longish commute if necessary.

One Book on Atheism I Should Read (read details!)

I am looking for one single book, perhaps a college-level read (not much higher), that explains the case for atheism. I'm not looking for any 'new atheist books', though I have enjoyed them -- especially Harris. I have read Bertrand Russell as well. I have a few atheist friends but do not want to talk to them about this as I am a Christian and don't want to give them the impression that I want to change them or judge them. I just want more exposure to it in a sincere and kind fashion without short bumper sticker like explanations. (BTW, I don't look at my friends as "Hey, here come my 'atheist' friends! But mainly here comes "Bob" and "Joe". I just don't think it is right to bug them about their positions or lack thereof. <--Not sure how to state that.) Thanks in advance for your book recommendation.
