Lost phone...

My friend was at the Ambridge Event Center off of MLK Saturday and apparently lost her Verizon phone. She also ventured over to the Burgerville nearby. I said I'd give you guys a try just in case. If you or anyone you know might have found it please let me know. I'm having her hit up craigslist, too. Thank you!

A cold one for man's best friend

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- After a long day hunting, there's nothing like wrapping your paw around a cold bottle of beer.

So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.

"Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the veranda and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it," she said.

Berenden consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised as "a beer for your best friend."

"Kwispel" is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.

The beer is fit for human consumption, Berenden said. But at $2.14 (or 1.65 euro) a bottle, it's about four times more expensive than a Heineken.

credit card imprint sales slips - local source?

Anyone know where to get credit card sales slips for those knucklebuster machines?

Office Depot, all those, they say that's so "old" everyone uses digital machines now... whatever. I need slips.

Anyone know where they can be found? I'm on a time limit so I'm dubious about ordering online.....

Other than trying to sweet talk CDBaby out of some. I know they have them. ;)

Somebody I met at a damnportlanders meetup two Summers ago has possibly caused me some trouble in real life. If my suspicions are correct it could be a pretty serious situation and she won't say anything about it. Should I say something about it here?

Area Rugs?

I need a large area rug for my living room...say 11'x7' or 8'. I'm building low, wide benches (6" off the ground) for my living room to sit around a low coffee table, and making tons of pillows/cushions for the area. I want the rug to be comfortable (not down with the berber texture), but durable as we have three cats and a muppet hound, and the living room is relatively high traffic. I would prefer either a solid color, something with a minimal pattern, or a vintage wool rug.
I'm not looking to spend a ton of money, maybe around $500. Less would be great. If we didn't have four animals I would probably want to spend more. I'm checking craigslist.

So, where is the best place in Portland to find reasonably priced area rugs? Do you have a nice one left over from a previous roommate/marriage/whatever that you want to get rid of? I have a vehicle, so picking it up isn't really an issue.

Does anybody know good online resources for PC troubleshooting? I've been all over Microsoft's pages and haven't found any answers to my problem.

EDIT: After like, three system restores, it's working again. Thanks for all the suggestions.

seeking: screaming yellow zonkers

Google says that there are some websites that will sell entire cases of Screaming Yellow Zonkers to individuals by mail order. But, what I'd really like is somewhere where I can go pick up just a box or two. Do you eat the Zonkers? Do you have a source? Thanks in advance.

auto glass repair

So my car got broken into and now I need to get my driver's side window replaced. Where is the best place in portland to get this done? I'd prefer to stay in SE but I'm open to suggestions.
I'm pretty clueless when it comes to auto repair. Do all these places that I see advertising windshield replacement do the other windows too? I'll be calling around to places tomorrow morning...

How much to install a gas water heater?

Can anyone who has had a gas water heater installed in their home tell me if $300 is approximately the going rate to get a professional to install it and haul the old one away? I'm talking just the labor cost, I already plan to get my own water heater and have it sitting there next to the old one.
