How might I disable or muffle the beeps that my appliances make (when buttons are pressed, when cooking cycle is finished) without risking my life or that of the unit? The toaster-oven is the most egregious offender, but the microwave is problematic too.

Why is portland called PDX? (aside from it being the airport code)
comment posted at 3:35 PM on Jun-2-09

I had my wallet stolen while out of town and had to fly back on an expired license I had as a backup (Not easy to do anymore). The problem is I'm back at my hometown airport for a 5 hour layover before flying out again. My documents are in storage a few hours away at my house (where no one is). I've thought of mail/ prescriptions/ and the like, but there is no way to make it home or have anyone bring it to me. Does anyone have any creative ideas on what I can use as backup ID? Keeping in mind all I have is this expired license and no way to get back to my house before flying out again.

How long should I wait before making another credit card application? I was denied for a specific card I'd like (Amazon.com card through Chase) in February for "too many credit applications." Can I apply again for it now?

So, it looks like I'm going to Vegas next week for three days. Uh... I don't like strip clubs. I don't gamble. I don't drink much at all. Is there much I can do besides stare at the hotel walls? Any and all suggestions welcome. Nightmare Mode: I HAVE NO CAR.

I'm looking for annual community bike rides around the world, particularly where there's a big participation or closing of regular streets. As an example, I've done Chicago's Bike the Drive and just found out about Perth's Freeway Bike Hike. Are you aware of anything else that's similar?

"Set As Homepage" - I have a client who is obsessed with the notion of adding a "Set As Homepage" text link or button to the header of their website - you know, like everyone used to do circa '02. Now setting aside for a moment how worthlessly moronic that may be, I am curious, do any current browsers even permit that kind of javascript anymore - like from a security standpoint? Is it a moot point? (Hoping so)
