Word spacing screwed up by saving on faulty flash drive?

How can I get my sex drive back?

How can I get my sex drive back? I am a 26 year old male. I don't recall exactly when my problems started, but it's been going on for over a month. I'd like to think that I'm too young still for such a steep drop in libido to be normal. What makes it more worrisome for me is that I have no idea what might be causing it. [more inside]

external drive gone awol

I have a 2TB Western Digital "My Book Essentials" external drive for Time Machine that has gone missing. Its icon sat on the desktop till sometime in the last day or two, and now Snow Leopard and Disk Utility can't find it anywhere. I have rebooted, unplugged/replugged, changed USB ports, changed outlets for its power adapter, etc. It is still running as usual, nice and quiet with its tiny light on. It still powers up when plugged in. No weird sounds. I plugged it into a Windows computer and it was recognized as an unreadable USB device (since it is formatted for Mac). So apparently it is still a functional something. My secondary TimeMachine drive, also a WD My Book, is still recognized and running as usual. Any help or ideas? Thanks!

mix and match tires with all wheel drive?

I have a all wheel drive vehicle. A number of years ago all four tires were replaced , they have never been rotated. Now the fronts will not pass inspection but the rears probably have about 40% of tread left. I understand that one can ruin the transfer case if one runs different sized tires on this and many other all wheel drives. I would like to buy two of the exact same tires, which are still available, and put those on the back and put the old tires on the front. Do you think that the difference in diameter between the new tires and the partially worn ones will cause a problem with the drive train?

Help me access my external hard drive through my wireless router

Any tips for an older learner driver (UK)?

I'm going to learn to drive a car. I have never driven a car before (unless you count, like, dodgems). I'm in my late 30s, and have recently moved to a town on the edge of nowhere (in Wales). The idea of driving is beginning to make me nervous. It's a combination of the "it's hard to learn when you're old" thing, the "rural place so no dual carriageways" thing, and the "oh my all those cars seem to go so fast" thing. What can I do to make this easier? Are there any "learning to drive for dummies" books that are worth getting? Or should I just stop panicking, bite the bullet and book myself some lessons?
