Help me design my research project: I'm collecting numerical data on a group of people compared to age-matched averages. Eg, I have a group of left-handed people and I want to know if their blood pressure differs from the average age-matched blood pressure. I don't have a control group, just data on blood pressure. What study design is this? Hint: it's not case control. I'm stuck.

I'm looking for suggestions for books that either general introductions or academic or school texts on topics like the proper design of scientific studies and experiments, the correct use scientific method and critical thinking as related to science and the errors usually associated with these.
I'm looking for books that treat these topics with a little more rigor than the average popular science bestseller.

I chose an unusual subject for my third year dissertation- Scientific Illustration. I need to compare past and present methods of recording images and their pros and cons with a named example (at the moment I've chosen Phytophthera, potato blight), as well as methods by which students and researchers observe and record their images.
I'm a little stumped though, as there is very little (to my knowledge) peer-reviewed referencable texts out there for me to study with. Can anyone help? [more inside]

My father-in-law (retired blue-collar aluminum worker, widowed, fixed-income, screwed out of health benefits when his former corporate employer filed bankruptcy) has an old Win 98 computer. Last year I installed major upgrades and switched him to Redhat Linux. All was well until Cox Cable swapped his old cable modem for a Webstar that is not Linux compatible. Can I get him back on Cox Cable with Redhat Linux without having to buy a new computer? Would a new cable modem work and if so, what brand?
