What should I get someone who likes chess?

I'd like to get a thank-you gift for someone who likes chess (probably a book but I'd be open to other suggestions). I don't know anything about chess; what should I get him? [more inside]

Thank you note for judge?

He went above and beyond. I can't tell you details about the sensitive and personal case that he heard last (he announced "cases x and y will be last"), thereby ensuring the courtroom was cleared. Besides just being an awesome person. Would I be allowed to send him a heartfelt note of thanks? If it matters, he is a county judge.

I feel like I'm in a very boring episode of Doctor Who

I'm having a weird problem with Dropbox, and googling is failing me because lots of people can't find their Dropbox files. But I can't find them in a very special and exciting way, involving differences between Finder and the command line. What am I dealing with here? [more inside]

Pay-What-You-Can for Non-Profits

I work with a local non-profit advocacy organization that is working on changing behaviors (promoting walking & biking in town). We charge for membership, but recently someone suggested we expand our membership by making it a pay-what-you-can (or want) sort of system and possibly we would have more cash and volunteers to work with. Can someone point me to articles/books/anything about how has worked for other non-profits or businesses?

I just met with a grad prof and want to send her a note to thank her. I am not sure how long it should be or how much detail to go into. I really want to impress her so that I can get an assistantship with her.

Euro traveling in the US - cell phone options?

I'll be spending the month of June in the US. What are the options for short term mobile phone service? I gather that sim cards in the US are different from Europe & that I can't simply buy a local SIM card for my Euro phone. Please tell me if I'm wrong! Can I buy a cheap local phone and "pay as you go" credit?

Anyone know this questioner's conundrum?

Anyone know this questioner's conundrum? the statement I'm searching for describes the attempt of the speaker to "not think of you" and subsequent efforts to avoid the seemingly inevitable results of thinking about the elephant when trying like crazy not to, heeding the exhortation "DON'T THINK ABOUT AN ELEPHANT!". My inclusion of the elephant reference is as a descriptive aid, not part of the musing of the speaker, by the way. Tao? Buddhist? Zen? Certainly meditative, but all I got on Google were answers pertaining to present-day songs and the like..... Ugh. It is something of a brain-teaser, but highly enlightening in its treatment of helping one get around the mental chatter that seems to predominate thinking. Or, not thinking, in this case. I can find it in none of my books, nor on the net. I can't be the only one who has read this. Not certain about the era in which it originated, nor country, although if I were to speculate madly I'd say Japan, perhaps? Arrrgh. Frustrating. Damn ADD. Thanks, folks-I'll try and check back in ASAP.

UK SIM part 2

UK Mobile Phone Filter: I'm going to be in London for a week and I have a Nexus One (unlocked) with no SIM. I'd like about 30 minutes talk time, 15 texts, and 100mb of data/web. I'd like to spend between £5 and £10 on a SIM/Plan and I want to do this as easily as possible. Basically, I want to be able to walk into a shop and say "Give me the XYZ sim." place £5/£10 on the counter, then walk out in less than the time it took you to read this question. [more inside]

Life is a semi-colon; it is only a pause.

As of last week, I have a bone marrow donor (Praise, God!). Because he's a "domestic" donor, I have to wait a full year before I know his identity (and only if he wishes to share it, of course), but I just found out that I can correspond with him anonymously through a long train of doctors, social workers, and representatives. I'd like to send him a thank you of some kind, but how does one thank a person for giving the gift of life? [more inside]

Did You Mean

Google search was great, until now. Now it asks you "Did you mean this" and then populates the first two results with the term you didn't type, but Google thinks you MUST have meant, because they are smarter than you. So, what's a good search engine for someone who loves the old google search simplicity? (P.S. Live and Yahoo are far worse)
