Bluetooth Automatic Syncing Between Laptops

Syncing between laptops: How can I easily and automatically sync files and documents between two laptops using Bluetooth? Ideally I want to load up one machine in the vicinity of the other and have all my recent data (documents/data/RSS feeds etc.) syncronised with NO hassle. Any good apps out there? [more inside]

Title page info on a title page-less paper?

ChicagoManualofStyleFilter: I'm trying to figure out what Chicago dictates (is there even guidance here?) for proper setup of title page info for a short paper of perhaps five pages or less without a title page. That is to say, how does the information that would go on a title page get formatted when one isn't used. Name/date/course/prof/etc., moved to the top of the first page. Can anyone point me to a specific section in the manual? Bonus question: I know what it vaguely looks like (LastName PageNumber), but I'm also looking for specific guidance for last name and page number info in the short paper's header. Thanks!

Help me create a wonderful thanks for a $1,000,000 guy

A donor has given our non profit $1,000,000 to build a new hospice house building (1/3 the cost of the project). We want to honor him with something different than the usual plaque. Or at least with a plaque that is unique. Something with a key might be appropriate, but would probably be boring. We have to make a presentation to him during an event in a couple of weeks. Anyone have any creative ideas to honor this generous man?

I don't understand Hungarian but I need to do research for my novel!

(Posting for a Friend) "I am doing research for a novel I'm writing. But since I'm no longer affiliated with a university I'm having a difficult time in getting responses from professors and specialists that I have contacted with questions. How can I increase my chances of having them take me seriously and answer my questions? Also, does anyone have advice for a non-Hungarian speaker to do research with the Hungarian Archives?" Thank you!
