Is this College coach fee reasonable?

My sister-in-law just approached me to see if I would help pay for a "college coach" for my oldest nephew. I've helped with various things like camp, acting lessons, a computer, etc. and normally don't mind at all. However, she is telling me that this women wants $4,000! I know getting into college is way different these days, but that seems outrageous. My nephew is bright and the apple of my eye--but he's not a super-elite student. Is this the going rate for personalized help with choosing a school, essays, etc.?

Twitter filter: Why does Twitter widget "die"?

Dumb question here, especially coming from a web developer ... But I use a Twitter widget on occasion on the front page of the site I work on. We'll be using it again Election night from about 4pm through to the wee morning hours. The widget is the standard-variety Twitter-supplied widget (http://twitter.com/widgets). The problem is, this widget always seems to "die" at some point during its use. That is, it will display tweets just fine for an hour or two (maybe even three, if I'm lucky), then it stops displaying tweets altogether, showing just the styled box, completely devoid of tweets. Search as I have, google-fu has failed me. Can't seem to come up with an explanation that seems reasonable to my supervisors. Any ideas?

What to give a best friend for their new business?

Mrs. Killaseal's best friend started a business less than a year ago (so far, so good). Mrs. K would like nothing more than to be able to assist best friend at the new business (food industry), but distance we live apart will not permit that, so that is out. So, we would like to give her a nice gift to congratulate her. Mrs. K wants to know, should we buy her an actual item (or items), in the 200-300 dollar range, or should we just give her a nice card with equivalent cash, since every budding entrepreneur could probably use the extra cash to help out with the new business? Mrs. K worries that although they are best friends, cash might still be tacky. [more inside]

Compact, easy to navigate portfolio blog

I'm putting together an animation storyboard portfolio and was hoping it could be nice/easy to look at on an iphone. I'm planning to use tumblr but want to know if any other free blogging options that might be better suited.

Formula to mesh two gears of arbitrary tooth count/position?

I'm writing a graphics app where I'm generating a simple gear transmission system with a variable number of gears each with variable number of teeth and placed at random orbits around each other. I generate gears in succession, placing and rotating each with respect to its parent/driver gear before moving on to the next. The problem I'm having is how to determine the initial orientation of each subsequent gear such that its teeth are properly meshed with that of its driver. [more inside]

Lies My Teacher Told Me About Columbus Are Being Taught Still

My daughter's teacher told her Columbus thought the earth was flat and the usual story about falling off the edge of the earth. As far as I can tell this is just not true, and the teacher should know it. Should I bother asking about this? I know it's insignificant, but it bothers me to know she's being taught something that just isn't true.
