I want to buy a pair of Vibram Five Fingers for a female. She wears a size 7 to 7.5. The VFF size conversion chart only goes as low as size 8 1/8. WTF am I supposed to do with that?
Ladies, do any of you have a size 7-ish foot and wear VFF? If so, what size fits best for you? Looking at the Classic style.

I kicked the DVD tray while it was open on my roommate's xbox 360 slim. Now it won't close. It feels like the gears are off track or broken.
Does the warranty cover that? If not, what should I do to fix it? Home repair? Take it to the local console repair shop? Can it be fixed, or should I replace the dvd drive?

Can some kind Mefite please open and send me a .docx document as a Word doc, or PDF ? I've tried two online services with no luck, and since I'm running Chrome, I can't download the MS fix. In addition, I'm too inept to figure out the workaround. It's only a letter from the GSA
covering the Art In Architecture application process for artists, and since it IS a government agency, I want to make sure I haven't missed something stupid. My email is in my profile. Thanks in advance !

Quick question...if I purchase a domain name (ie greaselightning.com) through Wordpress, can I transfer it to a different cms (?) in the future if i am not happy with wordpress' performance? For instance could I go to Joomla and take my name with me or does wordpresss somehow own it? This and any other tips you have for a new website creator/user would be greatly appreciated.

I've Googled this 20 different ways and still can't find an answer. I made a FaceBook fan page for my friend's business. For some reason, the only way people can see this page is when they are logged into FaceBook. I know other businesses have their fan pages somehow visible to the public (so that people don't have to log into FB to see it). All of my setting are set to "everyone". Any idea how to make this page visible to everyone without requiring them to log in?
