Ask LH: Are Short IT Courses Worth It?

Dear Lifehacker, I am in a bit of a life/career rut at the moment and want to develop some new skills. I have been stuck in retail for years but I would like to kick start a career in IT.

My question is: will these matter to potential future employers come interview time? I don’t want to waste my time and money!

Ask LH: Is It Worth Trying To Repair My Old Bomb Car?

Dear Lifehacker, I have a pretty old car (14+ years) which I’m looking to sell. The problem is the car needs a bit of mechanical work, to the tune of $1100, which is about half what I think the car is worth. A buyer would definitely notice the strange noises the car makes. What options are available to sell the car without repairing it? Or, should I just repair the car and sell it? Thanks, Let My Lemon Loose
