Helping help a friend find an old blog. Here are the details she remembers: A guy. Blogging around 2000 - 2001. Posts were often confessional, inimate accounts of his torturous relationship with his girlfriend, who had some sort of eating disorder. He lived in San Francisco much of this time, but eventually moved to (possibly) NYC. The blog may have been called the Grey Square or the Grey Box. Not much to go on, but maybe it will ring a bell with someone?

Is the San Francisco Embarcadero Bike Station too good to be true? I'm considering using it for my commute from BART out to the Presidio. There are 96 spaces available. Is it overcrowded? Will I be stuck when I have to park my bike there on Tuesday afternoons at 5pm? Will my beautiful Felt Z95 get carted off by evil-doers?
PassportPhotoFilter: I need 15 passport photos, am not finding inexpensive places (in the San Francisco area) or discounts on more than two so I'm looking at the price for two times eight. Am I missing something to think I can get two, go to FedEx Office and copy them on one of their machines for 49 cents per photo? Definitely wouldn't want to ship these things overseas, learn that they are unacceptable. Thanks for thoughts and any tips on bargain places in the SF area.

San Francisco financial district - where is a good indoor place to work for a few hours? My wife has a few hours tomorrow morning to kill before a meeting.

I'm a recent college graduate and long time depression sufferer. Now I've suddenly been cast out into the "real world" with no directed day-to-day course of action and I'm feeling lost and needing help. Currently near by the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm needing to settle down soon to make some money and also receive the mental health care that I believe I need. The problem is that I'm totally broke. Any practical advice on breaking a stubborn depression when you're not made of money would be sincerely appreciated. [more inside]

I need a hotel for 2 nights in San Francisco (10/31 & 11/1) next week. I'd like to be in the Fisherman's Wharf or Marina area, but Chinatown/Union Square area is OK if I can't find a hotel in the FW/M area. Ideally I'd like a room for $100 or less. I've checked the main travel sites, but the lists are overwhelming. It'll be 3 ladies, so cleaner, newer is best. I don't mind independent, older hotels as long as they're clean. Any suggestions or recommendations?

So I've lived in beautiful San Francisco, California since 2005, but I've recently started a job down in Sunnyvale. I can take Caltrain down there, but it's an hour's trip plus half an hour on either end to get from home/work to the Caltrain station in question. This is not sustainable, so I'd like to move south. I'm 31, single, and a city boy from way back, so moving to The Suburbs gives me pause. Also, I sold the only car I've ever owned back in '05 shortly after I moved here. So I have two questions: [more inside]
