Experiences with chemotherapy drug, Xeloda.

My father starts both radiation and chemotherapy tomorrow for colorectal cancer. For chemo, he has been prescribed Xeloda - which is taken orally. Can anyone share their experiences with this drug? It's noted that Xeloda is well-tolerated by patients, but I wondering what that exactly means in terms of real-life experience vs the pamphlets and website.

The landlord can make the credit rating better?

I have a friend who just started renting in the area (Detroit, Michigan suburbs). He says his landlord claims that he will increase his credit rating if the rent is paid on time. Is this BS? Or can the landlord have a positive effect on the credit rating? [Obvious: YANAL, YANML, You Are Not Anyone's Lawyer]

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.

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?"
