How to unblock the drain that I blocked while unblocking it?

I have the type of bathtub drain that opens and closes from a knob at the side of the tub. This morning, I fished out a lot of hair from the drain with a metal stick. I was very pleased with myself as I turned the water on, expecting it to flow at great speed down the drain. Instead, nothing! [more inside]

Some tech for a non-tech guy

Recently, I was stopped from using a site because of "violation of their terms of use," terms of course written in small letters in a very long page. I have used services at that site in exactly the same way for a number of years. I would like to continue to use that free site, but seem blocked. [more inside]

Wordpress website breaking

Is my wifi router blocking images from Facebook?

I recently replaced a couple of old LinkSys WRT54G routers running DD-WRT in my home with a couple of couple of D-Link DIR-615 routers that I got as refurbs from woot.com. I bought these because the old machines only did 802.11 B/G whereas nearly everyone in the house now has a device that has 802.11 N capability. All seems well to me, but my wife and younger daughter consistently complain that they now frequently are unable to display some images from Facebook, and that this began to occur precisely at the time that I put these new routers in.

How to fight a ticket for blocking your own driveway in San Francisco?

i've been living in an apartment building in san francisco for 10 years and have a one-car garage. for much of that time i parked my car on the street, parallel to the curb, blocking my own driveway to some extent. i also had friends park there cars there, and when i had a rental car, i parked it there on and off for several months. no one ever got a ticket. a couple months ago i parked a friend's car there overnight and got a ticket. apparently someone had called in a complaint, although the car was extending only into my own driveway, and by a small amount at that. i protested the $98 ticket, saying that i was the driver and the only one authorized to call in a complaint, but it was denied. i have no idea who called in the complaint, and DPT will not give out that information. i plan to do an in-person hearing. has anyone successfully fought this sort of ticket?

banking:filter:What, if anything, should I do about BofA closing/cancelling my credit cards ....because I paid them off?

I had two Bank of America credit cards. Both were of the high interest types (21% and 25% interest). I owed in the area of 5 thousand dollars total and I knew that it was time to bite the bullet and take the money out of my savings to pay them off. I may have been late in payments a few times (not often) and usually I only paid the minimum payment due. I naively thought paying them off completely would be viewed as a positive thing. I paid them both off just days ago. [more inside]

Work banned iTunes, how to get music on the ipod?

Dad's a consultant, and travels constantly for work. Work provides a laptop, but won't let him install iTunes. Is there a way to get music & audiobooks to synch to his ipod through an external drive, or cloud computing or something? Doesn't have to be iTunes, just a way to connect my dad and his music without offending corporate IT.

Is my router (or Comcast) blocking i.dell.com?

Something odd is happening on my internet connection at home. I have two machines both of which connect to the intenet via a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router (or Comcast variant on it) and a Comcast cable connection. Both of them do not display the Dell homepage properly. After viewing source I determined that they couldn’t find the supporting files at the subdomain i.dell.com (it’s possible other subdomains are missing as well, but that is the one causing the most dramatic effect). Viewing the site from another internet connection it appears fine. Is something up with the router, or with Comcast? Looking for steps to determine what is going on and (hopefully) rectify it.

What has hijacked Firefox?

Still doesn't load. I've run Ad-Aware, RegScrub, and every other spyware program I know about. What happened, and how do I fix it?
