I'm sure of it. Even Grace could do it. In fact maybe you should let her.

Because demand continues to drop, forcing OPEC to slash output at a furious rate. At least that's my guess.

This article explains it.

60 Minutes did a great story on how speculators driven by the banks drove the price of oil up and then when those same banks collapsed the price crashed as well.

Yeah, one of those "A,B,C,D" selector boxes, all red & whites for input & output.

My CD burner has stopped working. My computer reads the CD just fine and stores the information. However, when it comes time to copy the information to a blank CD, I end up with a CD that is patchy, sometimes works, or is just plain blank. Can this be fixed for a relatively cheap price? Can you purchase a new burner, or should I just buy a new computer?

Provided it's a PC, you can fix this fairly easily. You need to open up the machine and figure out if your current drive is SATA (one plug to the CD drive) or IDE (a big plug, a power plug and 6-pin spot with a jumper). After that, go to newegg.com and order one for less than $30.

irban, the pc speakers work as advertised. But the TV volume control doesn't impact the audio out. Total bummer. But I'll still be able to use it in some cases. Thanks for your help!

grodney, that's because that's a separate 4v output... ;-) Can only be controlled by an external source.

My coffee maker is getting slower and slower. I've heard that there's a product that cleans them out, making them like new. Anyone know what this product is called?

Nick,
2 things:
1: Thanks for taking down Burt's picture and,
2: Try Loni, not Lonnie
I'm sorry that the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours.

Nick, There usually is a sprayhead that spreads the water out over the grounds,check that also.

If it is a BUNN coffee maker do not use vinegar or CLR thay have a water tank and it will take forever to get that stuff out.
