inexpensive pathways for math greats?

My older one is great at math, worried about UK student debt, and wants to have the university experience. Are there distance or residential sub-£18,000 math degrees anywhere that offer a level of student experience akin to the tutorial opportunity and entertainment a student in university might have, or companies or organisations geared to these experiences?

Recovering from mental illness while on (likely limited) disability

I have a relatively short amount of time to get out of my dark, scary, and dysfunctional places and "rejoin society". I keep going through cycles of pushing too hard and then not pushing at all (while feeling shitty and guilty about it). How can I develop more patience with myself? And at the same time, are there ways to use the freedom I have right now to ensure I end up making adequate progress? [more inside]

No Cowboys in New Jersey

I'm looking for the lyrics of a Mary Chapin-Carpenter song called (I think) "Mama, there ain't no Cowboys in New Jersey". It never seems to have been officially released, and google turns up references to it but no words. I'm really mostly looking for the lyrics, not necessarily a copy. Any ideas?

What is the correct A/C refrigerant pressure for '04 Scion xB?

What is the proper air conditioning refrigerant pressure for a 2004 Scion xB? Should the pressure reading be made at a specific RPM? My A/C has been slowly loosing cooling over the last couple of years, now it really only cools well when traveling above 35~ mph, not so well at all in stop-and-go situations. Does it sound like I am on the right track to recharge the system? Works pretty well at steady-state speeds...

Life Magazine? Article About A Violent Pair of Addicts

I'm searching for an ethnographic, non-fiction article about two young homeless addicts, one a white male and one a pregnant black female. I believe, but am not certain, it was published decades ago in Life Magazine and that I found it through Longform.org. I'll put as many (possibly triggering, definitely unpleasant) details as I can inside. [more inside]

It's a dress AND a painting!?

There's an artwork on public display in my community that isn't labeled with the artist's name or the title of the piece, and I'd like to know more about it. The facility that has it on display doesn't have the information, so I'm hoping you could take a look at it (or just read my description) and tell me if you know more about it, or where I could find out who created it and what it is called. It's a rather unique piece, being a full-length overcoat that's been hardened/cast and mounted on a large canvas. The yellow floral pattern of the coat is seamlessly transferred to the background of the canvas. For a link to a phone-cam pic I took of it, click [more inside]

Find That Book: Spaceship with a forest interior?

Looking for a book I read as a kid, so I only have a few clues which is probably why I haven't been able to turn this one up. Science fiction, read probably in the mid-to-late eighties out of a school library. It might have been an older book - it had the flavor of older science fiction but I could be wrong on that part.

USB Thumb Drive as MP3 Player?

Hello! I'm looking for a simple solution to turn my 64GB USB Thumb Drive into a portable MP3 player. Nothing fancy, simple display, controls, and small screen. I have Microsoft Sync in my new car, and a laptop that I travel with. Seems like it would be easy to keep all my mp3s on one thumb drive and take it with me rather than having multiple copies floating about on all devices. There used to be an old Lexar & I believe a Sandisk product that allowed for this. Anyone aware of anything more recent or that supports all 64GB? Thank you in advance. PS. My USB drive is not one of those fancy encrypted ones, so it works in every device I've tried it in.

Getting voice recordings from QuickVoice on iPhone to the PC

I have the original QuickVoice recorder app on my iPhone, installed before the iPhone had its own-brand voice recorder. Inside QuickVoice I have about 30 long recordings that are too big to be emailed by the app. But the QuickVoice Sync app mentioned on this page isn't working for me. Can anyone suggest other ways that I can get inside the iPhone to access the data held by this app and transfer it to my desktop computer? I don't want to jailbreak the phone. My platform is Windows XP.

How do I stop my iPhone creating multiple calendars and merge them into one?

For some reason my iPhone's on-board calendar comprises no fewer than eight calendars. My appointments are strewn across the calendars quite randomly. When I add a new appointment, sometimes yet another calendar is created. The only way for me to view my appointments in a comprehensible fashion is to view "All". How do I bring an end to this preposterous state of affairs? Is there a way to merge all my calendars into one? I am a Mobile Me subscriber.
