Where can I get my car fixed in Arlington, VA?

I have a 2000 Mazda Protege that isn't working for some reason, and thus has to be brought into a shop. Any suggestions for a shop in/near Arlington, Virginia (basically, close enough that AAA will tow it there). Just looking for a car place I can trust (and ideally one that's reasonably priced, too), because I know diddly about cars....

Are they all going to make fun of me?

So it looks like my iMac G5 hard drive died some time this afternoon while the computer was on and I was not in front of it. Great! I'm still covered by warranty, so there's that. BUT. When the hard drive died... I, err, may have been in the process of downloading porn through BitTorrent. (Nothing illegal, but y'know, it's porn.) Obviously I have to bring this computer in for repair, and will probably have to give the HD to some kind of data-recovery service, and so when some techno-wizard hopefully gets things going again, there that porn file will be, sitting right out on my desktop. This happens all the time, right? Are they going to be scandalized? (I am in NYC, so my guess is no, but...) What level of humiliation or other problems am I looking at here? [more inside]

How can I recover data from a broken hard drive?

I recently purchased a 250 GB Western Digital Caviar SE hard drive. It's a internal hd and I foolishly thought it would be ok sitting on my desk hooked up through a ide-usb cable. It also has a power cable which runs down the side of my desk. Well long story short it fell off of my desk due to someone snagging the power cable and now my computer will not recognize it. I have a lot of important data on it which I would really like to recover. Any ideas?

Fix my microwave

I have a sharp carousel r1750 above the range microwave. Back before the warranty was out the control unit (a box with all the buttons and display died) and the warranty guy replaced it.

I need a handyman/contractor STAT

So after my water heater started leaking (a water heater that was located curiously in the attic), I've lost about half the ceiling in my bathroom to water damage. Does anyone know a reasonably priced and RELIABLE handyman/contractor in the Tampa Bay area? I'm in North Tampa, near Lutz, if that helps. Speed is of the essence, since there is a giant, AC sucking hole in the ceiling. The water heater has also been replaced already. I just need the ceiling fixed.
