I am a student at Northwestern University studying computer science. I am looking forward to my Mi.Yodeya reputation exceeding my Stack Overflow reputation, because I think that will mean that I am no longer a nerd. My Mi.Yodeya reputation has finally exceeded my SO reputation! I'm not a nerd anymore.

comment What constitutes as a ברכה שאינה צריכה?
In many cases, you would have to make A new bracha rishona on dessert even if you had not yet said birkat hamazon. This doesn't really answer the question, though, because the question still holds for the subsequent brachot achronot for the desserts.

comment Logistics of starting Shabbat early?
Crock pot is one solution. Shabbat hot plate is another solution that works quite well. Although you wouldn't be able to put liquids like soup on it once you bring in Shabbat (at least according to ashkenazim)

comment Logistics of starting Shabbat early?
I think it usually involves getting most of the preparation done on Thursday night. But if you're doing "early shabbos", then driving to shul is definitely an option if there is a place where you can leave your car overnight without it being towed.
