I'm looking for the artist behind this drawing of Bender (the robots) head. From what I can remember it was apart of a series of similar head drawings which included Darth Vader and Homer Simpson. I believe the artist was selling t-shirts on his website.
What happened to my PC and why did it stop? Alienware Area 51 ALX, twin Nvidia 880 cards, Win7 32 bit. On Friday, I got a BSOD and then the system immediately re-booted. On boot, instead of the normal POST hardware enumeration screen, I got what appeared to be random characters and then Win7 went to start-up repair mode. Several cycles of this did no good. Backup was out of date (yes, I know, stupid of me,) so managed to get to a command prompt from the Win7 install DVD and run XCOPY to copy my entire user file to external HD. Took 3 days, I guess running under CMD wouldn't allow USB Speeds. Today, the file copy finally finishing last night, I started the machine intending to run Memtest 86 from CD, it started right up.

My gas hob/stove/cooktop doesn't have gas anymore, in any of the 4 rings. Our gas boiler appears to be working fine as we're still getting heating and hot water. The electric oven on the same appliance also works fine. The ignition works, it's just there's no gas coming through, but there was yesterday. What is wrong, and what do I do?

I don't use any 3rd party applications on Facebook but is this some kind of adware/phishing/virus etc? The images in the right frame appeared while typing a status update; when I finished entering the update they disappeared. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently but it has happened twice since yesterday. Anyone seen this?
I'm a mid-twenties, relatively-tall, relatively-fit (6' 1", 180 lbs...but I run a lot) guy who has a shirt problem. During the colder months I really like wearing long-sleeve cotton shirts as a sort of base layer under other things. My problem? I can't find any brand that fits...either the arms are too short, or the shirt maker seems to presume that I'm going to have a beer belly to go along with my longer than average arms. I.e., what I'm looking for is something like the small size of this, but with longer arms. I realize I could get larger shirts tailored down or go the bespoken route, but both of those options seem kind of overkill for what should really be a pretty standard product. Are there any brands that serve guys in my size by default? [more inside]

Years ago, I had an mp3 of :wumpscut:'s "Thorns" that was completely instrumental- no vocals at all. I lost it in a hard drive crash and have been unable to find it ever since. Can anybody tell me which mix that was and what disc I can find it on?
How do I manually remove win32/fakespypro (showed up from a link someone sent) from my Vista system? I googled,with no luck from any reliable sources. I have four antivirus pgms installed, they keep removing it but it comes back. I now have DOS issues, no internet, cannot execute most pgms.. I managed to get regedit up but cannot find the keywords to fix it. Oddly enough, my restore disk became full at the same time. Where are the entries in the registry?

We have a drip drip drip in the shower and had the plumber look at it when he came to service the furnace. Unfortunately it's not just the gasket; the actual valve stem is broken.
