<br>Does anyone have suggestions? Should I just sell my car? <br></blockquote></div><br>Yes, absolutely. I am an attorney, and I don't have a car, and I would never own a car here. The cost of insurance alone usually equals the amount you could spend on a rental car or one of the many car-by-the-hour services such as flexcar or zip car or the city car share program.
<br><br>I live near the school that this community is supporting with FOSS. I had rented a car one day. I left my notebook briefcase (without the notebook) in the car for no more than 15 minutes. When I came back, the car had been broken into, and the notebook stolen. Fortunately, the most tragic loss there was limited to a wifi card. But as it turns out, I had not been able to use that notebook again with wifi for more than one year, until Jason Turner of this list helped me hack a netgear card at Javacat about 3 weeks ago.
<br><br>Also, if you travel by bus, your blood pressure will be lower, and you will meet some funny and crazy people on the bus. <br><br>If you need a ride in a hurry, cabs are reasonably abundant, except on Saturday night and Halloween night. Heh.
<br><br>Sorry about your loss! <br>
