  1. From a fellow Tip.It'er, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! ^_^

  2. Time on the Cross, a book on the economic history of American slavery written by Robert Fogel. I had him as a professor last year teaching economic history shortly before he died, so I figured I should read the book responsible for his Nobel Prize. So far, it's fascinating.
  3. I think many oldies (like me) still look around regularly. We just don't post much anymore.
  4. Analytical chemistry researcher for me. I was 16 at the time.

    Education

    >Location: Cambridge, MA I swear, if you're getting a full ride to Harvard or MIT.... Actually, I had both. Unfortunately, you can only accept one :P

    Education

    I'm starting as a freshman at a top university this fall, probably as a physics or economics major. I got a free ride, but without ultra-rich alumni, I'd be screwed - $60,000/year is a ton of money.
  7. I was thinking Java, since I'm proficient in it, but I'm still at a fairly early stage of planning at this point. Note that I don't need the system to dynamically update - the course catalog is only altered infrequently, so manual updates should not be problematic.
  8. I need the database for a college schedule builder I'm working on. The website I need to pull from can be found here: http://www.registrar.fas.harvard.edu/fasro/courses/index.jsp?cat=ugrad&subcat=courses (click on each individual department name for the list). Ideally, it would pull down the description, term offered, and other relevant information as listed. No API is available to me.
  9. I am currently working on a project that requires me to pull a large amount of information information directly off a website. All the info is in a standard format, but it's not delimited into a table or anything. I was wondering, does anyone know of a program or other method to efficiently catalog this information for me into a table?
  10. None - but then again, I was a board/global/supermod for several years.

    Textbooks

    high school student here, but I take college classes, too. Books for three classes totaled $600 - my real analysis book was $120, books for my computer science class came to $240, and the remainder was for a grad level chemistry class I'm taking. Thankfully, the state pays for everything, so I just laughed a little when they rang up the total. When I buy textbooks just to teach myself things, I usually use a combination of google books, chegg, ebay, amazon, and a few other resources. I've never paid more then $30 for a book that way (and that was for a calculus book covering calc I, II, and III) Aside from a few very wealthy (and selective) universities in the US, tuition charges are much higher. For an average state university, tuition charges run about $10,000/year, though good private universities run all the way up to $60,000/year.
  12. The interesting thing is that in the United States, people of Indian and Pakistani descent (I think Brits call them Pakis?) are among the least likely to commit crime among identifiable racial groups. Why? Nearly all are immigrant doctors, professors, or engineers, and such people rarely commit crime. Specific immigration policies are an important part of how crime is distributed.
  13. Took long enough. Europe's inability to make these basic decisions has been dragging the world economy down for some time now.
