My true calling in life was apparently to be a bug tester

So, I just bought a new computer! It's shiny and powerful and it smells good and I ❤ it. But it has Windows 8. I have some philosophical disagreements with Windows 8 (the short version: I don't like the trend of making computers more like locked down, spy-on-you-y Consumer Electronics Devices a la smartphones) but I'm more or less happy with it. Except, oh wait, right clicking anything makes Explorer crash. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE, INNOVATIVE AND TERRIBLY USEFUL FEATURE! Please help me help my new electric dream not do that anymore. [more inside]

having trouble feeding myself!

I have a wheat allergy that I am terrible at managing, no real kitchen in my tiny apartment, no cooking skills, no time management skills, a fully-tested inability to wash food containers when I do manage to bring food to work, and sugar issues (hypoglycemia). As a roughly middle-aged human, I would like to try to get this under control and am looking for creative ways to do it/obvious ideas that haven't occurred to me. [more inside]

Forgot iPod password but iTunes stops responding while syncing

My daughter put a password on her iPod and promptly forgot it, which would be fine if iTunes didn't stop responding every single time we try to sync it. I really don't want to lose everything that is on there, especially her pictures and purchases. Help me be a hero to my daughter and tell me how to fix it.

A mac, a ps3 and a comcast walk into a bar

I've been having an (infuriating) issue getting my PS3 to play nice with my Comcast cable internet.
