Art historians/enthusiasts: Help me find this (18th c, european) painting?

I saw a painting that really intrigued me, but I forgot its title and author immediately. In this painting, a stately man sits at a desk, and there's a globe in the picture, but also a really indistinct object which looks wrong in some way - the perspective seems off somehow, its coloration - until you look at it from a more acute angle relative to the painting, at which point it makes more visual sense. It might have been titled 'diplomats' something or other.

Can we all use different computers for our multiple user Rosetta Stone?

When Rosetta Stone says you can have multiple users, do they really mean multiple users on the same computer? We're working with RS version 3 for personal use, Latin American Spanish. The box says 5 users, but when installed on a second computer, it won't let us use the activation code to get all the lessons. Can we run it on two different computers? (MacBooks OS 10.5.8)

pharmaceutical patents

For the patent lawyers in the house... If a pharmaceutical company creates a me-too drug, (i.e. a drug that offers no improvement over the existing drug in its class--for instance claritin, allegra, zyrtec, etc.) is their burden of proof in the patent process that their drug is "better than placebo" or that it is "as good as the pre-existing drug in the class?"

What has Roger Ebert discovered about "Cache"?

In a new essay on the film Cache, Roger Ebert says he has discovered a "smoking gun" that may explain the film's mystery. He says it occurs at around 20:39 on the DVD. Can somebody with access to the DVD tell me what is there? (For anybody who hasn't seen this film, Ebert's essay contains some spoilers--as (I hope!) will this thread.)

Basement seeks cleaner

AlasPoorBasementFilter: My basement...could be cleaner. Unfortunately, I'm not strong enough to budge the appliances to clean behind them (or get to the stuff over them). Googling and Craigslisting are, so far, not turning up individuals/businesses who would be happy to clean a dirty basement, as opposed to a dirty rest of the house. Are there any fellow Monroe County, NY area Mefites with suggestions? If you'd prefer to contact me privately, feel free to use the e-mail address in my profile, or memail.
