Is it a lost cause to use 3rd party repairs? MS of course wants to charge me $100. I'm a first-timer...not sure how to proceed.
Also, anyone looking to sell an old XBox? I searched and saw Scruffy posted that he was willing to sell one for $60 about 3 weeks ago. Any others willing to sell theirs ...

Planning a trip to Europe and as an OT poor, I am looking to minimize costs. Transcontinental fare alterations could of course mean the difference between checking out Barcelona or not. I have zero clue how hedging, etc., works from the standpoint of an airline. How good of a proxy would WTI price ...

Spotify got exclusive rights to Red Hot Chili Peppers a year ago, but now all the most popular albums are no longer there.

It's an Intel Centrino N-1030 on an Asus laptop. How hard will this be to repair on my own and how expe...

I don't have any numbers with me, but I wouldn't be surprised if social conservatives constituted over half of Romney's votes yesterday.
