Advice on installing an air conditioner into a window sleeve that's too big?

In the apartment I'm moving into, each room has a wall sleeve (just below the window) for an air conditioner. We tried installing one of my air conditioners in there tonight, and it's too small to fit the space. It mostly fills it, but even with the fins on either side of the air conditioner pulled out, there are still spaces above and below. Does anyone have any advice on how to properly install the air conditioner? [more inside]

Do you trust 3rd party smartphone batteries?

Do you trust third-party batteries for your cellphone? Specifically I'm thinking about picking up some spare batteries for the HTC Evo, but I've been a non-removable battery phone user for so long that I don't know if I really should stick to the manufacturer's branded batteries or can safely save some money and look elsewhere (like a Seidio, for example).

Condo insurance: smokers and employment

Roughly how much will it add to your yearly condo insurance premium if you disclose that you're a smoker? What would be the repercussions for not doing so? Likewise, what about the part of the form that asks if the apartment is "regularly unoccupied during the day or evening by all adult occupants in the household." Both of these were pre-filled with "no" answers, and I'm hesitant to bring it up with the insurance company until knowing a little more. I'm in Brooklyn, NY.

My ring tarnished, and now it's fading away (onto me)!

My wife gave me a ring 2-3 years ago (while we were still dating). It's made from a New York State quarter, and silver(?) plated. About 6 months ago it started to tarnish, and now the copper from the inside of the quarter has been revealed. It's beginning to turn my skin green! Can I just take this to any jewelry shop and they can fix it up? Can it simply be replated? [Alternate solution inside] [more inside]

Smoke a Gold Cig

Looking for the title of a foreign (Russian?) film, probably filmed mid-late 90s. What I remember of the plot: gold(?) smuggling operation, with the gold being smuggled in cigarette packs; I believe a factory or power plant was central to the plot somehow; the film was in black & white until about 2/3 through the movie, when in a crucial scene a gold cigarette was used to connect a circuit, flipping on the lights in the power plant and switching the film over to color. Help?
