Dear Lifehacker I’m a huge fan of Veronica Mars and was very excited when the movie was announced as a Kickstarter project and I have been looking forward to its release, scheduled for next week in the US. However, it seems that it won’t be getting a theatrical release in Australia. I want them to make more Veronica Mars movies so I’d like to legally access it and give them my support. What are my options for doing so in Australia?
Dear Lifehacker, I consider myself a pretty organised person. The rest of my family? Not so much. It’s not that we’re totally out of control or anything, but with three kids, there are lots of activities, messes abound, and schoolwork is always a hassle. What can I do to get us all more organised and in sync with each other?
Dear Lifehacker, Like most people, I’ve pooped a lot in my lifetime. Usually things follow a fairly predictable pattern, but now and then I’ve seen unusual colours and shapes. I don’t feel bad or have any discomfort, but I’m concerned these changes might mean something. How can I figure out when I should be concerned about the shape and colour of my poop?
Dear Lifehacker, I’m a fan of seeing movies at the cinemas. I know the food is very expensive but what annoys me at one chain is that they have package deals and “add-ons” but no individual pricing for specific items. I know supermarkets are expected to display unit pricing, but at the cinema there is no way to work out if you’re being overcharged. Is this legal?
Dear Lifehacker, I just moved into my own place! It’s my first home, and I’m excited. However, I know there are repairs I’ll have to do myself, and I have some improvements I’d like to make too. Problem is, I don’t know where to begin. How do I use these tools, and where do I even get them? How do I make sure my work is safe and not damaging my home? Does anyone offer training for new homeowners?
Hi Lifehacker, I have recently relocated to Australia and I’m faced with a strange problem with my name. I have a first name which I do not use — my middle name is my preferred name. My question is how easy is it to change my name, and what are the consequences of having some documents with my full name and some with my preferred name?
