Is this quote to bypass broken sewer line in the ballpark of reasonable?

Had a blocked sewer this morning. Plumbers unblocked it, charged $900 for the unblocking and CCTV investigation. The camera showed a large hole at one section of the (clay) pipe, and tree roots at another point. The plumber says the whole pipe should be replaced, and that it can't be relined. This would involve disconnecting the bathroom plumbing, jackhammering up 2x4m of concrete, moving the hot water cylinder which is currently in the way, putting in new PVC pipes that bypass the old broken one, and repouring concrete, installing inspection hatches this time. Removal of waste included. The quote is $14,250 plus GST. Is this anywhere near what I should expect? [more inside]

Camera vs. Bridal Shower. Fight to the death!

Help me clean our Canon EOS Rebel T1i camera after it came home from the wife's sister's bridal shower with more than a few buttons and dials that are sticky or mushy. For what it's worth it does not smell like vodka and seems to work fine otherwise, for now at least. [more inside]

Repair vs upgrade

My Nikon D40 died recently. I sent it to Nikon for a repair estimate. I'm looking for any experience anyone has with having Nikon repair a camera -- and weighing that against putting the repair money toward a new camera body. If I want to go with something new, I need help with selection. More details within! [more inside]

Busted LCD on DSLR. How to fix?

So I was taking a walk this morning with my camera bag. My camera bag decided it wanted to experience it some freedom and slipped off my shoulder. In the process, my Canon 10D had a meeting with the sidewalk. I now have a busted LCD screen; this makes me sad and unable to operate half the camera. Does anyone have any repair options for broken LCD screen on a Canon 10D in Houston, TX?

How do I remove moisture from inside camera lenses?

Recently somebody broke into my car, took my camera equipment, and dumped it in the bushes. The stuff sat there for nearly two weeks before we found it this morning. Everything's there (or seems to be), but I'm worried: all five lenses are cloudy. They seem to have collected moisture inside. How can one effectively remove moisture from inside a camera lens? Will time take care of it?

My Palm Zire 71 needs a dust bunny removed; should I send it in, buy something new, or do it myself?

There's a dust bunny under the camera lens on my Palm Zire 71, which has been making my pictures rather annoyingly diffuse. It's out of warranty, so repairs will cost at least as much as I estimate this thing's resale value to be in its current condition. Should I bite the financial bullet and send it in for servicing, cut my losses and sell it as damaged goods, or throw caution to the wind, grab my geek toolkit, and attempt my own repairs?
