How to start a career as a freelance journalist.

I'm a university student about to graduate with honours in Arts (majoring in English). I've spent the last three years working casually as a mostly unpaid freelance journalist for several rather small online and print publications, and now that my studies have come to a close I'm looking to move into paid work. If there are any mefites who have experience as freelancers and have any advice (or jobs!) for me starting out in this business, I'd really appreciate any input at all. [more inside]

The spooky spooky woo woo show

If I wanted to watch Fringe, what episodes should I watch If I don;t want to watch a lot of boring monster-of-the-week stuff? This list seems like a good starting point, though I'll happily include episodes that are watchable or good rather essential to the overall series mythology. For bonus points, which disks of the DVD library should I get from the video store to see the good episodes?

TV filming at your house?

A location scout slipped a letter through our mailslot - call him if we'd be willing to let them "rent" our house for the filming of a television show episode. I haven't called him so I don't know how much they might pay, or any other details. Have you ever done this? Is it an awful headache? I'm interested in hearing how it worked out for you.

How do I shop for a nice dress for someone else online?

How do I shop online for a nice dress that someone else (my wife) will wear without notifying her? Since we started dating in college, and for a couple of years after that while we were doing what we were doing, we were never really making enough money to splurge on nice evening wear and so forth. Now, we're finally pretty financially stable, and this year for Christmas I want to get her a very nice evening gown (and some jewelry, but that's easy) for special events and so forth. The kicker is that I live pretty far away from any sort of store that could help me out with this, and any time I do get to any sort of civilization, I'm with my lovely wife and can't exactly do any surreptitious shopping. That leaves the Internet. [more inside]

Windows XP crash/boot failure - Hardware error or virus?

My brother-in-law's windows XP machine has died, with a STOP error of 7e (ooooo5).. Sometimes it also references aspi.sys. Sometimes it makes it to the 'windows' screen, then hangs there loading endlessly. I suspected a rootkit because of a virus warning before it crashed, but I downloaded a couple of Linux rescue CDs and they didn't work - spitting out a variety of error messages (couldn't mount fs, init cancelled, or just a stream of hex numbers). I've also tried safe mode with and without console - it just resets without comment. The computer is very dusty, so my next step is to open it up and reseat the components after giving them a bit of compressed air - any thoughts on other stuff I could try, or components that might be at fault? I guess the motherboard is the obvious place for a problem - plausible?
