Dear Lifehacker, I just bought a new one-bedroom apartment and I want to put a gaming chair in the lounge room. The problem is that my girlfriend won’t suffer anything that looks like your typical “XtrEme!” gaming chair and it needs to double as a single-seater for when we have visitors. Any tips on what I should look for in a trendy seat that won’t look out of place in the lounge room?
Dear Lifehacker, I need advice about a friend who likes to do dangerous DIY work around his house. He recently did major plumbing work without having a licence (the main water line from the street to his house). He’s now installing an electric stove in his kitchen also without a licence. Should I dob him in? I’m afraid that something terrible may happen in the future from a botched job.
Dear Lifehacker, Wikipedia frequently runs annual funding drives, which makes me wonder: are Wikipedia donations tax deductible within Australia? And should I be donating to the main site or the Australian chapter?
Dear Lifehacker, I’m looking for some advice when it comes to upgrading to Windows 10. As several blogs have reported, it will soon stop being free so I’m keen to give it a go before MS starts charging. However, I’m not sure if I’ll like it. My question is: What is the best way to backup my current computer configuration so I can switch back in the event that Windows 10 just doesn’t do it for me?
Dear Lifehacker, I frequently visit my local general store due to the convenience and lovely customer service. They have a discount bin which is populated with out-of-date items such as biscuits and chips. Usually, the products are a week or two old, but the other day they had things in the bin that expired over a month ago. Is there any kind of cut off for selling out of date goods?
Dear Lifehacker, I am putting the finishing touches on an iOS game which I am hoping to release fairly soon. However, before I put it up on the iTunes App Store, I wanted to get a few more beta testers to check it out and provide some feedback to make sure I’m not missing anything. Other than friends and family, where can I find some decent beta testers to download and try out my iPhone game? Being an indie developer, obviously cost is an issue, so the lower the better.
