    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 vs Logitech Z-2300?

    CNET gives these two systems top marks for PC speakers. I'm in need of something for listening to MP3's on (Rhapsody music service to be precise). Has anyone been able to compare the two or can anyone comment on either? Thanks, Mark

    Cleaning a garage floor (varnish/paint removal)

    OK, I am taking it upon myself to do a remodel of my parent's garage. My older siblings (and maybe occasionally my father) are responsible for some fairly significant paint and, worse, polyurethane drips, stains, spills etc. The garage is just your normal concrete floored garage, nothing...
