When trying to read a Sandisk 16Gb Class 2 Micro SD card (on my Win7 PC through a USB reader) it will show up briefly but as soon as I try to copy any files the drive itself will disappear, meaning I can't save any of the data (or pics) from it, so I'm looking for a way to keep the drive visible to my PC so I can save the data. (The card comes from my Android HTC Desire HD which randomly dismounted itself this morning and now reports itself as 'damaged' in the phone). Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!

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 feel bad giving tough love to my mom when she is feeling depressed about breaking up with her asshole boyfriend. I don't know how to make her situation better for her, or to ease her pain. All I can do is lend an ear but its annoying that my privacy is invaded constantly because shes totally out of it. I never had a private moment to myself all my life, that's a different story. How can I make light of the situation without losing my own sanity?

Does anyone have any experience with "premium" .me
domain registering. If I go to something like http://wash.me
, I get a page that says it's a premium domain, owned by domain.me, and they may auction it off some day. I can apply for it, but basically have to tell them what I want to do with it. While I'm all in favor of cutting off domain squatting, I'm really not inclined to share what might be a brilliant business idea with them, at least without an NDA. [more inside]

I understand the normal rules for "I" and "Me" in sentences, but I simply cannot figure out the answer to this example.
What I want to say is that my dad and I are regional truckers (or me and my dad are regional truckers). If I stay true to the "I" vs."Me" formula I learned in school and eliminate the objective pronoun, the simplified version of the sentence can be written as either "I are regional truckers" or "me are regional truckers", and both of these look atrocious written down. I'm not a seasoned grammarian, but even I know that neither one of these seems to be the correct answer. Am I missing something?

I'm looking for a new watch. My current watch is a Lorus Fusion 7T92-X001 as pictured here
, and I'm very happy with the look of it (its a lot more silver looking than that picture implies). Mostly it seems to have an organic flow to the look of it which I like, its not chunky or anything like that.
However all the knobs have stopped working, I can't change the date/time, the pins keep breaking, and the cost to repair seems inordinately high, perhaps its time for a new watch. Can anyone have a look at that and pick something they think I might like?
Don't worry about cost or anything like that :)

I am looking into options into cleansing programs. I know the years of smoking has
