A friends teenage (16) son is considering skipping university and instead training themselves to be a programmer, with a particular interest in making games. Assuming he's starting from scratch what would be some good cheap or free resources to get him started? Both in terms of getting the basics and allow him to work on a game-related project that might hold his interest?

Catch-up-the-North-American-filter: Please suggest films that I can watch to get up on the socioeconomic situation in Britain, leading up to the current unrest. Bonus if it's streaming on Netflix. Documentary or not.

US citizen, settled in UK. If I want to study mental health nursing in the UK, will I need (or should I get anyway) an access to higher education course, or can I just submit my old high school good grades from the 1990s? I'm 31. [more inside]

I completed about 3/4 of the requirements for a BA in history at a US university. I last attended about three years ago. I now want to complete my degree, but I am permanently settled in the UK. [more inside]

What does "Prob. Res." stand for, in the context of a professor's C.V. that lists an advanced degree from a British university, with "Prob. Res" afterwards? Has anyone heard of this abbreviation?
