It's difficult for me to admit this, but alcohol has become a problem in my life. I can't rationalize it away anymore. I'm ready to just stop drinking, but I would like to hear stories from people about the positive benefits you noticed when you cut alcohol consumption way down or completely out of your life, either with or without help.

Can anyone help me with a problem I have with Ripping music to my Ipod/Computer.
I have several CDs that are meant to be gapless Album (IE a continous 80 minute mix) and when I try to rip them to my Ipod, it make a momentary gap appear. So how can I rip these CDs without the Gaps, or how can I rip them to my PC without track markers, so that they are one long mix
Thanks for any advice/Help

Need help finding manufacturer abroad to produce a product. I'm struggling finding companies that are still interested when I tell them I am a small business startup (with a great idea!). I understand that telling manufacturers that I'm not going to put in a huge order they are less interested but a girl needs to start somewhere!
There are so many people that read this site I thought someone might have an idea or experience doing this.
Thank you very much!

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.
