Was this a real TV show or am I imagining things?

Was this a real TV show or am I imagining things? Circa early-mid 90's, an American show about a family (maybe just a single dad?) with a few sons (ages between 10 - 15?) that owned and lived at a holiday motel complex. The episode I seem to remember is one of the boys was cleaning or going through a guests room after they had stayed and found a porno mag. [more inside]

Good faith effort to return money failed - they show up 4 years later - what does my friend do?

(YANML filter) Asking for a friend: "About 4 years ago, this company in (foreign country) gave my company a $3,000 deposit to negotiate a deal. The deal never went thru, so they were supposed to get their money back. They sent over incomplete wire instructions and I requested them to send the right info. Never heard back. When I closed the company, I tried maybe 5-6 times to get this info and they never replied. So they had their money with me all these years, neglected it and now they're asking for it back. Of course, that money is gone." [more inside]

How do I handle this situation at work without looking like a jerk?

How do I handle this situation without looking like a jerk? We have a new person at work. This person will need a laptop and the company will purchase it.

I'm going to be in charge of the transfer and this new person will see that I am getting a new one while he is getting my old one. I don't want to look like a jerk. What do I say? Help?

Looking for a movie about making a movie ...

I am looking for recommendations for an old film -- old enough to be in the public domain -- in which characters are making a film, so that there are shots of cameras, and of the movie filming. Ideally there'd be some kissing going on, getting filmed. I'm going to use the footage in a music video, so the audio/audio quality isn't important. In case it's not clear, I don't have a specific film in mind, but am just looking for footage from any film that fits the bill. And ideally the film would have been released widely enough that my library's extensive DVD collection would include it. Thanks in advance for any help.

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?

Laser XTSL Environment

Years ago, I had a computer called a "Laser XTSL Model 1", I thought it ran DOS, but from my Google searches, I must be incorrect. But I do remember a program for it called "Go!". It was an environment, that, if I recall, looked like an office. It had a calculator and maybe a recipe holder? Could anyone provide more information about 1) The computer and 2) "Go!" (maybe without the exclamation point). Thanks!

I'm too old to be scared of intimacy!

How do I let people love me? Will I ever outgrow my fear of intimacy? I'm in my late 20s. I'm scared of intimacy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not scared of sex. Won't think twice about a threesome, but am startled by holding hands. If a guy wants to get to know me more, compliments me, or crosses the line from being sweet to me to being sweet on me, I get super flustered. I stutter or look at my feet. I run away. [more inside]
