Don't Pet This Kitty

Adopted cat doesn't seem to be warming up to us. We've had her for about 7 months now. She doesn't like to be petted or touched and often bites very hard if Mr. Stardust or I have to do so. Can we get her used to being touched, or should we leave her alone? Further details within. [more inside]

869/9500 = 1?

I'm seeing "No space left on device" errors on a Ubuntu (standard LAMP stack) Virtual Private Server, to which I have root access via SSH. df -i reports no shortage of iNodes, but df -h reports Size = 9.5G, Used = 869M, Avail = 0, Use% = 100%. I'm not so good at math, but those numbers don't seem to add up. I've found no reports of such errors with similar disk space reports on Google, and my usual avenues of online support have not been helpful.

Did Marx come to disavow aspects his earlier writings, i.e. The German Ideology?

Is anyone aware of the specific elements of The German Ideology that the later Marx is said to have disavowed or been unproud of? I understand that Marx's economic understanding was developed far beyond what it was at the time of this writing due to his research on the matter, but I'm concerned about if Marx came to feel any different on the historical materialism expressed within his earlier works? I could've sworn I had saw one reference that reflected how Marx felt about his early work (specifically, The German Ideology) but I can't find it now, and I know that I couldn't trace that observation into any sort of specific elements that Marx came to disavow.

How to sell a mattress/box springs set used only two nights?

My husband bought a new Tempur-pedic mattress/box springs set hoping to ease some back pain he's been experiencing. After only two nights, he concluded that the mattress is too soft for him to sleep comfortably, and that it only worsened his back pain. I put the set on Craigslist for about 1/5 less than we paid, but we---predictably, maybe---had no takers. It is, of course, too big for selling/shipping on e-bay. I think most people hesitate about buying used mattresses, however light the use. We could just donate the set to a thrift store, but I'd rather try to recoup some of the nearly $700 that he paid. Has anyone had a successful experience selling a mattress? If so, how did you do it? Many thanks in advance.

Stuck with a Know-It-All/Pontificator

If I am trapped in a meeting or group with a co-worker who likes to hear himself talk (I mean really pontificate)...how do I go zen on it all? How do I adjust my own frustration? He sometimes has an entourage/fan club which isn't my business but I get really frustrated when stuck with him. He also tends to show up in the same small group parties I have attended. Deep breathing doesn't seem to be helping. I'm thinking about a flask of whiskey.
