Anyone going up to PAX this year? I just bought my three-day badge and I'm about to grab a hotel room. I used to live up there but it's my first time at PAX. Kinda excited.
Also, does anyone know where to get the little Oregon badges/buttons/pins/whatever you want to call them? It's an outline of the state with I think a little heart where Portland is.
has anyone else used the electronic cigarettes?
i bought the NJOY package but the whole thing (menthol and regular) tastes like plastic. does anyone else have experience with this?
Where does one acquire felt?
I really just need a small bit of felt for a costume.
Maybe somewhere downtown?
Hey dudes, I'm putting together a costume and I need a cheap bowtie and set of suspenders. Where would you recommend looking in SE?
I am moving tomorrow and just realized my new place has a microwave built in.
Goodwill won't take electrical items - is anyone interested in a small, antique, free microwave?
so rather than getting my laptop repaired every time it dies, i think i'm going to just buy a new one. i've found several very comparable laptops hovering around the $500 range though, and i'm undecided as to which one i want. so i'm wondering if anyone has anything, good or bad, to say about the following laptop manufacturers: compaq, toshiba, dell, and asus. tell me why they are assholes and you hate them, why you think they make a really well-made product, or whatever other input that you think might help my decision.
Hey, Folks. Maybe you can help me. I have several pairs of Men's and Women's shoes that need either new heels or heel-protectors. For once, I have a little cash. So I want to take them in for repair tomorrow and (ideally) pick them up again a week or two from then.
Either Downtown or inner NE would be good, especially if you can vouch for them doing good work and turning around stuff promptly. I've used the store in Lloyd Center Mall a time or two. They were nice enough but oh-so-sloooooowww. Same with my usual option in SE Portland.
Where are some good places to donate stuff? I'm thinking shelters/co-ops/libraries, etc...specifically for the following things:
dishes or other household wares.
I'll take the stuff to Goodwill if I absolutely have to, but I'd rather not.
Thanks for any tips!
