comment Is GL2( R ) - > PGL2( R ) surjective?
In general the map will be surjective when Pic(R) is trivial. Brian Conrad's homework on group schemes walks you through this to a certain extent. If R as a Dedekind domain you can think of the elements of $PGL_n(R)$ as being pseudomatrices of fractional ideals all of whose $n$-fold products which go into the determinant are principal. If the class group is trivial, then all the entries have to be principal anyway and you're left with a standard matrix in $GL_n(R)$ up to unit multiple in $R$.

comment Spicing up Riemann surfaces course (revised)
What's so bland about Riemann Surfaces that requires spicing up?

comment Canonical lifts from $\mathbb F_q$ and CM-theory
I have two references in mind: 1) Messing's book shows how if $A_{/k}$ is an ordinary abelian variety then the Serre-Tate Canonical lift $\mathcal{A}_{W(k)}$ admits an isomorphism $End_k(A) \cong End_{W(k)}(\mathcal{A})$. 2) Deligne's Inventiones paper "Varieties Abeliennes Ordinaires..." shows how the choice of embedding $W(k) \hookrightarrow \mathbf{C}$ doesn't change anything. He therefore shows an equivalence of categories between ordinary abelian varieties over a finite field vs $\mathbf{C}$ whose details escape me at the moment but the paper is 3 pages so you should read it anyway :)

comment Etale covers of a hyperelliptic curve
You're right. I still think there's a way to say that if $Y$ was also Galois then there's a way to break it up into a composite cover with $X$ in the middle but I don't really have any evidence for that.

comment Connections between Riemann hypothesis for curves over finite fields and Ramanujan property for graphs
For Ramanujan graphs coming Cayley graphs I don't know the exact story, but using Brandt matrices you can get Ramanujan graphs out of the dual graphs of certain Shimura curves. Pete Clark has some "rambling notes" on this subject here math.uga.edu/~pete/ramanujanrevisited.pdf and I covered some smaller cases in a course I taught a year ago.
