International travel and frozen food

I'm about to depart to a foreign country with high priced, low quality, not kid friendly food. It is common for expats to bring meat with them and I want to do this too, with AskMe's help. [more inside]

Make Facebook stop annoying me!

Typing anything in a Facebook entry box (search bar, status update, comment field) that causes a list of possible things I might want to link (friend's name, company, page I've "liked") to come up freezes Firefox. Completely. Except not every time, and not consistently. Help! [more inside]

Windows 7 (x64) freezes during file transfer between disks

My Windows 7 PC (HP H8-1300z) has been working quite fine for the past 2 years but it recently began acting up and I can't figure out why. Everytime I attempt to do a copy/paste (backup) with large volume of folders from one drive to another (external) the PC freezes. The fan also randomly goes crazy for a minute or two and then stops.

Computer locks up at nine every night?

My computer locks up at nine every night. Well, sometimes as early as 8:30. The mouse acts as though it's very nearly out of batteries, (i.e. sits still for minutes on end, doesn't register clicks) and the keyboard doesn't record any keystrokes for long stretches, then types out doubles of every letter. However, if a video is playing, it continues flawlessly, and no processes show 100% utilization. Nor do the performance tab or network tab on the Task Manager show any spikes. [more inside]

Can you freeze a milk box?

You know those aseptic packages of 1% milk? Can you freeze them so that they're merely cold by lunchtime? Or does the milk separate or the container blow up or something? Thanks!

OSX freeze on wake?

After the OSX 10.8.2 update several days ago, my laptop freezes on wake from hibernate (at least, it only does it when it has been asleep for a while). I posted on the Apple support forums here, but no one has responded. There are excerpts from my system log there. Things I've tried: fixing permissions, SMC reset, turning off my gmail calendar updates (I saw a lot of errors in the log having to do with that) but no luck. Any ideas?

Brain freeze, dont know why, hopelessly dissapointing

Help me with this brain feeze? No one visits me, I have no friend or I can get along with anyone socially great first few times. So I decided to let everything go. I cant ask help to anyone in person so this post. I do have a good job, good credit, somewhat healthy, good education {May be I never learned :) } Couple of days in a week I think as follows... I am living a life, lifestyle thats truly less than the true potential. Selling myselves less so called "plucking the low lying apple" Not stretching my comfort zone. Some people have said that may be I get depressed. The problem is I dont always try to change it. Instead I just think about all the chances I screwed up and all the people, relationships I have pissed off. Its like my brain freezes to come up with solution and want to just watch TV and eat pizza(comes later though). For few days I live a very lethargic , lazy life. Dishes lie unwashed, no laundry, no bath, no gym, exercise. I live alone, so need to be ashamed of someone might say something. I am 31 years old, live alone, never been in a relationship, no gf(as I piss off everyone in some way I cant understand). I do have a good job, good credit, somewhat healthy, good education {May be I never learned :) } Help me with this brain feeze?

What if a bank ignores an account "freeze"?

I read here that Cuba has frozen about $1 billion in foreign businesses' bank accounts and is now offering to dribble the money back to the account holders over five years at a piddling interest rate. But this is all "electronic" money, right (as opposed to physical cash)? What's to stop an account holder and a non-Cuban bank from ignoring the freeze, "transferring" the money electronically, and then simply acting as though the funds were actually transferred?

Why does my Macbook keep crashing?

I have a 1 year old macbook which keeps freezing for no apparent reason. When it happens a message appears saying I have to restart the computer by holding down the power button. It started happening after I set up a 3G internet connection but I guess that's probably a coincidence. I can't think of anything else that could have caused it. Any ideas?
