Smoothing creased foamcoare

Bought a piece of art (yay!) at a festival, and it got slightly damaged before I could get it home (boo!). It's a print on foamcore, 9x12", with no framing, and now it has a single, not-quite-straight crease across the back. No damage is visible from the front, except that the surface isn't flat. What's my best solution for flattening it out before framing?

Can this CPAP stand be saved? Or is there a better way?

My partner uses a CPAP machine at night, with a stand to elevate the hose, to keep it from getting crushed or tangled. The stand he uses works well—it greatly improves his sleep—but each stand fails at one soldered joint after about a month of use, so he just buys another one each time. We're tired of paying $20 a month for what should be a one time (or at least rare) purchase. Can you help us find a way to reinforce the stand, or a sturdier stand that we'll only need to buy once?

Derailleur derailed.

The "hanging bolt" or "pivot bolt" assembly which held the rear derailleur to the frame of my son's old mountain bike disassembled while he was riding it and vanished. Is it possible to find generic replacement parts or does it need a whole new derailleur (it's an old Suntour Accushift \alpha-2000)? What's the cheapest way to get this bike running at this point?

Dropped iPhone - Can the display be saved?

I have a an old iPhone 3G that was dropped and is now only showing a white screen or a grayish screen with some vertical stripes (or a black screen). Otherwise it seems to be working - it makes the "battery connection" noise when you plug it in, the "unlock click" when I swipe my finger in the unlock area, etc. Is this something the genius bar can help with, or is this sort of thing un-recoverable (or are there other options I should explore first)?

Trying to be a good landlord

I just bought a new condo (yay!) but the shower water is not ideal (boo!). It gets almost hot, but not quite. I know that I can adjust the temperature on the water heater in the basement, but the water in the rest of the house gets very hot, so I feel like there's something shower-specific. From Googling, it sounds as though there's probably a blockage. Can you explain to me, like I'm a child, how (and if) I can deal with this? [more inside]

Help me get my leather painting fixed.

My wife has this leather painting/art kind of thing which was made by taking a hide of leather and cutting out patterns in it. I think it was then painted a bit. It was made in Thailand originally. The problem is that it got stored somewhere damp and the bottom bit has shrunk, so now it is not rectangular but more rhombussy shaped. (Not a lot, but noticeably). Is this repairable? I mean, leather stretches right? If so, where would you go to get it fixed? I don't even know what sort of craftsman to ask.

Melting Stove Cords and Me

Our stove's electric cord melted and our electrician says that he thinks it was a fault with the stove itself. When I say the cord melted, it is a 6 inch gooey mess starting in the center of the cord that had heated up to the point where it started to burn through the wall and melted a hole in the gas line. The stove itself was off (oven and burners) and it apparently happened spontaneously. The electrician was, in his words, "shocked your house did not burn down. Be glad you smelled the gas when you did". My question has two parts going on the electrician's hypothesis: 1) The stove is out of warranty but it is still only 7 years old. Maytag is sending a repair person to asses the problem. Would we have any leg to stand on to ask for money towards a new stove? I doubt it but am hopeful. 2) Who, if anyone, should we notify that there may be an issue with these stoves? I would hate to think that someone else's house might burn down through some sort of faulty wire and we could have let "someone" know. (we are in Georgia). A bonus question - can anyone think of how this could possibly have happened? It seems pretty odd to us and to the electrician and we cannot think of something that might have made this happen.
