Looking for something useful to buy my father, who has recently moved back to living on a boat (catamaran, sailing boat, 32 feet) after about 7 years on dry land. He's got the basic necessities and doesn't do the more kitschy end of things - what might he need? The boat as they always do needs some work. I have seen this thread.
I'm looking for some good books about same sex parenting to give to a lesbian couple with an adorable baby boy. They say they want something to prepare them to address the good, the bad and the ugly (ex: bullying, homophobic slurs, etc). Same sex marriage and parenting are legal in our country, if that makes any difference. Could you give some recs? Thanks in advance!
Yesterday I uploaded an interview via Tunes to Tube and somehow got to the Subtitles/CC area with my clip in a box on the left, and the transcription box to the right automatically populated in lines of two, no timings set. My husband signed me out this morning, and I can't figure out how to do it again and my Googlefu is failing. Any ideas? [more inside]
Before 1985, I read a short story about a person murdered for correcting the apostrophes on signs. Memory tells me that it was published in a mystery magazine such as Ellery Queen's. What might it have been?
I have been lately removing personal information from the internet, and on one particular site I thought I had successfully used Google’s Remove Outdated Content Tool. However, the site- unfortunately one with my address plastered on it- still comes up with a search of my name, albeit now with my name scrubbed from the search result, site description, and the website from whence it came.

About a year ago, my mum's friend sent her a Taishanese video on WeChat, it was a simple recording of a woman's voice listing a whole bunch of "good luck" blessings. Onscreen was the transliteration of what she was saying - captions in solid red traditional Chinese characters. I haven't been able to find it on youtube, but maybe I've been searching for it wrong. Anyone seen it and knows where I can get it? The video is pretty funny when the woman gets into it, and she talks faster and faster towards the end.
I would love to be able to do a few things with the new shortcut app everyone is raving about in iOS 12. I can't seem to find the actions I need though and they're hard to google. Please help. [more inside]
Hello, A family member, a well-respected doctor, gave me their former Medicaid ID, as a form of inspiration and encouragement. I would like to frame/display the card on my desk at work. Any creative ideas? Maybe framing it with a quote underneath? I imagine Pinterest might have some neat ideas, but I would not know where to start with a search. Thank you!

A few years back, you nice people helped me get quickly up to speed on information security concepts. It worked and I totally got the job. Now I'm ready to move on to another job, but it will require additional research. This time, I need to get a quick overview of managed services/SaaS in the context of sales. What resources can you recommend?
I just switched from Gmail's webapp to Spark as a desktop email client but it appears to be impossible to customize the smart inbox view as much as I want to. Are there other alternatives that do this better on a Mac? [more inside]

A friend with a Bipolar II diagnosis is having a depressive episode, and asked me to help them find somebody to talk to. This friend is on medication but is having trouble getting in touch with their prescriber to adjust their meds, so if you've got recommendations for a great psychiatrist for dealing with bipolar I'm happy to hear those too.

Sometime in the last few months, I read a blog post by a woman who's either a professional economist or blogs about economics that recommended several podcasts and audiobooks. I now can't remember the name of the writer or the website. I'm pretty sure I first saw the site after Tyler Cowen linked to it on Twitter. The blog post in question specifically mentioned the audio books for Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series as outstanding. Does this ring any bells for anyone?
Hello. I find that whenever I try to listen to MP3s on Patreon's Android Mobile app, it frequently stops the track entirely, and then resets the counter back to the beginning; I then have to re-find my place manually. How do I make it stop doing this? (HTC One M9, Android 7.0)
One of my loved ones has the diagnosis of West Nile virus neural invasive disease. He thought is was tick-related and had health professionals working with him before he had all of the awfulness. Fever, lack of coordinated muscular movement, vision problems, the works. The diagnosis is based on testing and they can’t really pinpoint exposure. [more inside]
