comment Two Three Way Switches w 14/2
Also, regardless of how you answer @bib, no. Multi-way switches require an extra conductor.

comment Why are there so many different types of screws (phillps/flat/hex/star/etc)?
Nice summation. The triangles are "tamper proof" as neither a Phillips nor flat screw driver will work (the screw drivers most people are able to gain casual access to). With a square drive, a Phillips or flat blade of the correct size will fit into the corners, and still drive the screw.

comment Wiring electrical outlets from a single outlet
When I asked years ago about receptacle limits per circuit, @Tester101 gave a great answer, with references to NEC. I've never heard of an arbitrary count limit. With regard to plugs chained off outlets, the fire marshal tends to get annoyed if I plug strips into each other, but has never cared how many strips are on a circuit. I could run a strip off each outlet on a bench bar, and he'd be happy. If this is for an entertainment center I'd recommend a private circuit, to limit audio feedback from other devices. And because you're estimating 12 amps.

comment Can metal studs support a 64" plasma TV on a swiveling mount?
Something to keep in mind: You're planning to cover a section of the wall with plywood. You can cut access holes into the drywall in order to install anchors, so long as those holes are in the area you're planning to cover.

Thanks! That will be much easier, but I'm still glad I checked.

So you'd say it's not worth the effort to disassemble, then?
