How can I buy this ticket I found on ITA Matrix Software?

I found a ticket on ITA Matrix Software from Guangzhou China to Columbus Ohio. I can't seem to find the ticket on any website though, or maybe I'll have to buy the ticket through two different websites since it's two different airlines? I checked expedia, and hipmunk. Details of flights inside. [more inside]

How can I pay the right fare from Pearson Airport with the least hassle?

I regularly get a taxi at Toronto Pearson Airport to my home in Toronto. There's a flat fare of $47, but if I just get into a cab, about one-third of the time the driver will try to charge me $55 (the rate for the center of downtown) or a meter fare (usually closer to $60). What's the best way to avoid this? [more inside]

Alternative comic shops in Denver?

We will be traveling to Denver later this month and would really like to check out some alternative comic shops, if there are any! A Google search turns up general comic shops, but results on alt comic, zine-y shops are few. Any tips on some cool places would be great! Thinking along the lines of Oily comics, etc.

Is certification "really" extra?? Used car price negotiations..

Found a car I like that is listed, as a certified vehicle, with a certain price on the dealer website. We negotiated a price to my liking, I had a mechanic check it out and right before I was going to sign, the sales manager said they would *add* a certification fee. I walked out. Should I reconsider?

What's new in Chicago?

I lived in Chicago for years and generally come back pretty often, but somehow it's been over a year since my last visit. What new/newish restaurants, bars, and attractions — new within the last, say, 18 months — should be at the top of my to-do list on my upcoming trip? [more inside]

A Dad's Dilemma... A Car for a 16 Year Old: Balancing Price and Safety

So, my sweet little girl is about to turn 16 and we've started doing a little car shopping - for a Subaru. My mechanic (a SubaruGuru who I trust implicitly) made me aware of a hyper-meticulously maintained 1996 Subaru Legacy wagon with only 88K miles and in mint condition. Drove it, and it's true, it's an excellent car for it's age. Price is very affordable for us too, at a time when we don't need a lot of extra expense. I'm ready to go... but... [more inside]

I have to move to Austria with cats

I need to move to Austria to take care of my Mum. I am planning on going June/July next year. I have 3 cats which I do not want to live without. Is there a specific agency I go through to get them over there? It is a permanent move. Also, can anyone suggest a good, not terribly expensive, overseas moving service? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

Car's power window won't roll up - bad switch or larger problem?

One of the power windows in my car has stopped rolling up. The windows are controlled by a dual switch in the center console. The driver's side works, and the passenger "down" works, but the passenger "up" switch does not. I tried replacing it with a new switch I ordered online, and was able to get the window 90% up, but then that new switch abruptly stopped working. Is this likely to be a case of a bad part, or is there something wrong with my electrical system? More details below. [more inside]
