What do I do with this old laptop?

I'm looking for suggestions for both scenarios: The computer works, or it doesn't work. I'm waiting for a battery from eBay... Wikipedia says it runs OS 7. What can you do with that? A friend suggested I gut it and fit it with a Nintendo or Sega or something. Anything to spark an idea, and possibly where to look for how-to's concerning your suggestion, please!!

Oh, you want working windows? Yeah, it's gonna be a while.

I moved into an apartment in a Victorian house last Friday and about 5 minutes after I start moving in I realize that the windows are in terrible shape. The wood frames have rotted, some windows don't open, some don't close. At least one had a broken frame like it broke when someone was trying to shit the window. A couple have cracked panes. Probably half of them are missing the locking mechanisms so I can't lock them. [more inside]

Identify comic

Can anybody help me identify a comic I read around 30 years ago (yes, I know, but it was really good, hence this request). It was one of those American “fantastic tales/stories” (don’t remember the actual title) and as I remember the stories were from the 1950’s -1960’s. The strongest story was about a somewhat put upon geeky chap, a genius scientist whose life is dominated by an alpha male type. This man steals his ideas and become successful on the back of the scientists groundbreaking theories. Anyway, for some reason, the alpha male is not able to care for his newborn son, and our scientist offers to care for the boy. The twist is that the scientist uses the infant as a guinea pig to test his theories on nature/nurture, and the infant ends up looking exactly like the geeky scientist and not our obnoxious alpha male. Ok, ok, this may not sound that great a story but it had a big impact on me as a kid, and would love to find the comic if I can. Any ideas?

is extremely low mileage bad

A friend has a 10-year old Lexus (with only ~50k miles on it!) that gets driven 2-4 miles per week. Is there any harm in this? (It is a second car for one person.) Oil would keep recirculating due to the weekly drive and the alternator should keep the battery charged. Right? I mean, if the car is fueled only once every 12-18 months can that be good for it? (sediment?) Would any other problems be likely?

What's the oldest version of Photoshop that works with Leopard?

Help me Remember an Anime from my Childhood

Will our 14 year old lab survive lipoma removal surgery?

Our nearly 14 year old female lab mix has a huge lipoma on the side of her chest. It does not seem to bother her or interfere with her movement - although she does not like it to be touched - but this grapefruit sized tumor continues to grow, and is definitely a bit bigger now than it was at this time a year ago. Our vets want her opertated on immediately. They fear the lipoma will rupture. [more inside]

two introverts and a baby

My husband and I are expecting our first child - we are older, fairly introverted, no extended family nearby, and most of our friends either have older, not-very-dependent children, or are childfree. We don't belong to a church or synagogue (and won't be joining one) and our neighborhood is secluded and full of older folks who we don't really interact with much. I have a very real fear that I will be isolated once I have this child and stay at home with it - a friend of mine said "don't expect to find a fun time at Gymboree - those mothers are bitches!" So there goes that. Has anyone else overcome their introvert tendencies once they reproduce? If at all possible, I want my baby to get out in the world more than I usually do. I'm intimidated by the hot young moms I see with their babies in slings around town - I don't think I would have much in common with them.
