television repair

I have a Toshiba rear projection television that I paid $2000 for in March of 2002. My extended warranty expired in March of 2005. Like a dumbass, I didn’t extend the warranty further. Today, the color convergence went out on it. Supposedly there are 2 parts that probably need to be replaced. They cost around $50 each. No biggie. However, it’s going to cost about $320 for the service call. It’s possible that the parts don’t need replacing, and that the convergence can be fixed after the person making the service call opens the back of the television, but I’m still not looking to get screwed. When I’m looking at $500 in parts and labor, it might just make more sense to buy another television...

So... does anyone know of anyone that has experience with these kind of televisions that might charge a more reasonable price? Thanks...

I am at the zeitgeist cafe now by Quest Field. My friends are taking the bus up to Vancouver in an hour. I am then driving to Portland. If anyone needs a ride and wants to share some gas, I can wait a bit longer...

The Ave in the U. District

Since I'm not originally from here I was wondering if any knew the history of this street? Why did it turn into the way it is today?

I've heard from older people who went to UW back in the day that the Ave used to be nice and "the place to be". Now it's just covered with trash, homeless people and drug dealers. Being that I live a block away from it I figure I might as well know more about it.

It just seems so out of place compared the surrounding neighborhoods and it's definitely not somewhere I or most people I know like to spend our time.

Motor Boat Rentals?

Is there a place I can rent a motor boat for a day? I have out of town guests coming in a few weeks, and I would love to go out on the water for a few hours. I don't need something big- room for 4-5 people is sufficient.

Any ideas? Preferably where I don't have to tow the boat?

Place to obtian mosquitofish (for free if possible)

I recently moved into a house that has a very neglected 500 gallon concrete pond in the garden. (Pictures) The housemates and I have drained and cleaned out the muck and want to start filling it with water, plants, and fish.
Instead of dumping a bunch of chemicals in the pond we would rather try to balance it naturally. The most immediate concern is the mosquitoes, as the neighbors complained about them the day we moved in.

So here is my question :

Where is a good place to buy mosquito fish? I'm in the central district and am not familiar with any of the pet/fish stores in Seattle. I'm also looking for the breeds of goldfish that like to eat mosquito larvae, preferably for very cheap.

I've heard that you can get mosquitofish for free in many places from the local insect control or other agency. Does Seattle or King County have any sort of program like this?


*Edit: Yes, I know that they are considered invasive species in WA state, yet they are still distributed to control the mosquito population in the tri cities area, which in not much help over here.*

Parking at White River?

On the website for the White River Ampitheatre, it says:

In addition, White River Amphitheatre offers a free shuttle service to and from the Auburn SuperMall Red Robin for most concerts.

Can anyone tell me about this? Do you have to pay to park at the Red Robin? Do the shuttles run every 5 or 15 or 30 minutes or something? Any details would be appreciated. Thanks.

Tree pruning, spraying

Hello all,

I just moved into my very first house, and I'm loving it, but have one problem. I have three apple trees in my backyard (which reminds me of my hometown in Eastern Washington). The problem is, these trees have never been pruned or sprayed and are the HUGEST apple trees I've ever seen. They seriously look like a Maple or Poplar tree. The branches start after about 10 feet of trunk. The leaves also appear to have been infested with bugs, and they are looking very sickly.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for a company or person that could trim my branches and spray my tree? I know, I know, I'm from Eastern Washington, and I can't do it myself?!?! Well, I have worked in orchards, but always sorting and not pruning. Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Note to people in SELF checkout lines...

When you use a self checkout, the price of each item comes up for you (look up), and only YOU can screw yourself (it's not a vindictive cashier). This is just bizarre. It's not the poor cashier/helpers fault that you are incompetent, and please don't spend 10 minutes going down the reciept looking for a mistake... because if it happened (look for the words "Self Checkout"), IT'S YOUR FAULT.

Info on the different areas of Seattle

Hey all,

I recently joined this community in preparation for my move up to Seattle. I've lived in California for my entire life and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for the majority of that time. I've been trying to find an apartment and was wondering what an ideal location would be for a twenty something. I love urban settings and enjoy going out at night. Also, as I have been near San Francisco for most of my life, I am a big fan of eclectic neighborhoods with interesting and young people. Any suggestions or resources? If any of you know of good buildings, that would also be of great help. I'm looking for a 2br 2bath apartment. I have a decent budget but of course, the cheaper the better.

Thanks!
