Cheating enablement or friendship?

One of my favorite traits about my boyfriend is his loyalty - to me, his family, his friends. However, his roommate and close friend has been in a dysfunctional, drama-filled relationship with a single mom and continues to cheat on her with other women. My boyfriend has helped him not get caught out on several occasions. Am I being unreasonable in thinking he's enabling some pretty sleazy behavior? [more inside]

Name that Company

I need to name a fictitious sporting goods company. This company will pretend to be a online retailer like REI who sells GPS watches, camping gear, and bikes. Although not required, the name should not already be a registered domain. The name needs to be authentic and not cheesy. Think "Gander Mountain" or "Sport Chalet". Help me name this company!

How to pick a name for my company

I would like to pick a name for my construction company. I am living in Vancouver, Canada. I am looking for something tough and masculine as the industry itself. How can I find a catchy name which is not already taken? Also, I would like to use the word "development" instead of "construction" at the end of my company name (xyz development) Do you think it is a good idea since its more general?

800 number routing

I would like to setup several toll free numbers and have them routed each to a different phone number. Is there a company you would recommend that could set that up for me, and that will have a caller log feature for each toll free number for when clients call? Thank you.

1-on-1 time with the president...

Posting for a relative... The President of my company has asked everyone in my department to meet with him in a 1 on 1 meeting in an effort to get to know us on a more personal level. I work for a Fortune 500 company in the travel industry. I studied Economics in college and deal with supply/demand pricing every day. From what I've heard, his meetings with non-management employees have been very relaxed. At the end of the meeting he asks what your salary is and if you are happy with it. He also asks if we have any questions for him. My question to you is what should my answer be to the salary question be? I am happy with what I'm getting paid but obviously want more. And what kind of questions should I ask him?

Help some buddies form a biz together. No buddy bands.

I pretty much only have 2 non-family friends but i am really close with those two friends. We are all low to mid 30s living in different cities in the southeast. Two of us are lawyers, the third is in sales. None of us are breaking the bank but we live comfortably. The problem is (1) we dont work together and (2) none of are particularly in love with our jobs. We have been talking about forming a business together for years but we have thought of any idea as sad as that sounds. We just need some practical but that we could do together. It would be a side gig for us all unless it got big enough to replace our current jobs (the ultimate goal). Looking for suggestions on business ideas or just importantly suggestions on where to find some business ideas. They do not have to be sexy biz ideas but i should say we would probably not be interested in paid blogging, or similar 'work from home' business ideas. I would appreciate any thoughts! Best

Any Melbourne tech companies that use a "Stripe"-like interview process?

I tend to have bad experiences with traditional job interviews. I'm interested in finding out whether there are any tech companies based in Melbourne, Australia, that use an interview process similar to the one used by Stripe.com. Simply, Stripe gets candidates to work on a simulated project (http://www.quora.com/Stripe-company/What-is-the-engineering-interview-process-like-at-Stripe) rather than, say, writing code on a whiteboard.

Where in the SF Bay Area can I get Pliny the Elder on tap?

Where in the SF Bay Area (including the South Bay) can I find Pliny the Elder on tap? I know about Bobby G's in Berkeley, but they've been out of it the last few times I've gone. (Is there a particular day of the week when you have to go?) I also know about this list, but it doesn't really help that much, since you can't tell which of those locations sells Pliny on tap.

Who owns the rights to Arc Records these days?

How would I go about finding out who owns the rights to albums and songs released by a long-defunct music company? Specifically, a Canadian label named Arc Records. The article I linked to states that Arc came under the control of Ahed Music Corp Ltd in 1969 and that both companies ceased operations in 1986, but I haven't been able to track down any information beyond that.

How to register a company name and if under LLC or Corporation?

Hello, I am currently developing a small food business. I am interested in selling my food on weekends at outdoor markets across the city. I think this is a good way for me to get my feet off the ground and see how people respond to my product. What I can't quite figure out is if it is too soon to start thinking about registering the company name and logo? If so, would I register my small business as a LLC business or corporation? I am a bit confused. Would someone be able to help? Thank you!

Best software or websites to manage my small company

First of all, if there are better places on the internet where I should ask these types of questions about project and company management, please let me know. You guys are awesome, but I have plenty of other types of questions I'd like to ask in here, and, plus, I need to find the best source for answers to specific questions like this and fast. I need the proper technological solution for managing the flow of tasks and information of an entire company. The company is about 20 people in the office (half of them engineers) and about the same in the fab shop, so it's small. I am not the owner, but the oft-ignored second-in-command. See my other questions (here and here) for more details about my specific working situation. Right now, the company can only be described as chaotic. We have taken probably on probably too much work, people (especially me) aren't aware of what others are doing, collaboration takes place in inefficient bursts in the conference room, and the massive amount of information we generate per job and in the rest of the business is never easily found when needed. The owner causes a lot of these problems with his capricious style of running the business and tends to only add to the entropy, but I think that centralization of information and communication may save it before it's too late. I need the proper tool or tools to do this. I'll discuss where I am thus far, and we can go from there. [more inside]

Starting an iOS development company

I work at an airfare company as a junior mobile developer. My best friend and I are thinking of starting a new company and we are considering making it an iOS development company. I already have some good app ideas that I could implement within a short period of time. She already has a corporation on file that she paid a good sum of money for. My biggest pitfall is hiring a designer. I can do the development and I feel that marketing would not be a weak point of this endeavor, however the design is where the problem lies. How feasible is it to start an iOS development company? How much money would we need? Does it make sense to do so? Are there any good resources available for us, including monetary?

My girlfriend might have lost her insurance, and we need help.

AskMe: we need help. My girlfriend just found out that her health insurance was terminated for non-payment (she thought she had paid it, and when I get home this evening we'll double-check our accounts to see what happened.) Whether the error was hers or the insurance company's, the company has stated that it'll take them 10-14 days to know whether or not they can reinstate the plan regardless. She has a pre-existing condition (ADHD), so consistent coverage is very important - and Ms. MP is starting to freak out. What's our next move, and how do we get through this? [more inside]

The Mystery of the Folding Chair

Email mystery: I run a theatre company called Folding Chair Classical Theatre. The company's email address is the first two words of its name, an at sign, and gmail dot com. For the last several years, I've been getting emails (maybe four a year) from people trying to order folding chairs.
