Toby Chew? Toby Wong? Movies w/ gangsters?

I'm on a gangster movie binge. Reservoir Dogs, Boondock Saints, RocknRolla (basically all of Guy Ritchie's stuff). I need more in this vein to fulfil my craving for cool men doing violence in innovative ways. I'd like recommendations for modern movies preferably without the Italian mafia. Bonus points for United Kingdom focused films.

Is This Really Death Metal... For My Car?

While performing routine maintenance on my car, my mechanic noticed a hum coming from the (standard) transmission. He then changed the transmission fluid and noticed pieces of metal when draining the old fluid out. Crap. This car only has 85,000 miles. How many more can I realistically get out of it?

What software can plot non-trivial functions?

What software can I use to plot functions? Excel and matplotlib seem to only plot data points. gnuplot plots simple functions but not the generalized harmonic number, which I need, e.g., H(n,1.5). It would be great if this software can also plot inverse functions, e.g. x=f(y) on a normal x-y axis to overlay on a normal y=f(x) plot.

One would be company but will two be a crowd?

I'm having my birthday party at home on Saturday night - food and drinks for about 15 good friends (we supply dinner and a nice cocktail, guests bring wine and beer). An out of town friend is coming and we asked her to invite a friend of hers who does live in our city and who we met once before and really liked. Now the friend-of-our-friend is asking via the friend if she can bring two other people we don't know. I'm really on the fence, can you give me some advice? Not a life or death situation I know, but I'm a little bit stumped... [more inside]

Wireless router that can connect to a printer and external hard drive?

Please help me find a router to make my parents' lives easier. I am looking for a wireless router that will allow me to connect to a printer and an external hard drive via USB. It doesn’t need to be wireless N (G is fine), but if it’s N it needs to be dual-band. Other than the Apple Airport Extreme with a USB hub attached, what wireless routers can do this? The models from Linksys with Storage Link and D-Link with Shareport seem to be able to connect to either a printer or a USB drive, but not both simultaneously. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
