Honest Garage in Miami?

This morning my car (95 Altima) wouldn't start. Seems like an ignition problem. Are there any honest auto repair shops I can take it to here in Miami (the closer to the intersection of Red and 8th the better)?

Can this laptop be saved?

Can this laptop be saved? eMachines M2105 bought refurbished from Tiger Direct outlet near Toronto two years ago (90 day warranty). Recently the power cord developed the "jiggle it to make it work" disease. Only it turns out that it wasn't the cord but the jack inside the computer that had the problem. Now the jack is completely loose from whatever it had been attached to and so the computer doesn't go. While online third-party parts dealers seem to have jacks for just about any other eMachines laptop, no-one seems to have this one. And the official eMachines parts supplier says I need to replace the mainboard (which costs about two-thirds of what I paid for the laptop for the part alone). [more inside]

I've lost my light installing mojo.

We decided to replace an ugly old chandelier today. After turning off the breaker and taking off the chandelier, I noticed there are black, red, white and green wires. The house is circa 1968. From what I can tell there used to be a fan/light. So I hooked up our flourescent dome by matching the wire colors and capping the red wire. Unfortunately, it didn't work. [more inside]

Macbook Pro repair options

So the superdrive on my Macbook Pro is having the same problem as a lot of people on Apple's discussion website - it is spitting out most DVDs. I am outside the 90 day support period so I can't call them to tell me what to do but inside the warranty period, and an Apple Store is too far from me. What can I do about repairs?

What's wrong with my bike- the chain or the gears?

What's wrong with my bike- the chain or the gears? Or me? My three-year-old bike has always had, to one degree or another, a problem with slippage, in which the chain momentarily loses the gear teeth when I'm pushing especially hard on the pedals. Finally, this Sunday, the chain broke, after acting up especially bad and frequently going very slack when I was coasting. The question is, do I just need a nice new chain to fix my slippage problem, or is the problem with my gears? Do I need to replace them? Or am I just riding it too rough?
