Sound Advice: Projector or flat-panel TV?
Q. I have a large game room and am debating between buying a 75-inch flat-panel TV or a projector with a 100-inch (or bigger) screen. It will mostly be for movies from Blu-ray and a Roku streaming box, viewed with the lights out.

It's also a fragile fan base, still stinging from the final years of Mark Dantonio’s tenure, wondering if this is the beginning of the end for Izzo, too. Here’s betting it’s not. The circumstances are different. So are the foundation...

Motormouth: Fuel lid frozen shut?
Q: My car is a 2011 Subaru Outback. During this prolonged extreme cold spell we've been having, the fuel filler lid will not open. When the lid release lever is pulled, there is no result even though there is no visible ice around the lid. Do you have any suggestion to open the lid or do I just have to wait until the weather gets warmer? M.G., Chicago A: It may be a long time before it gets warm in Chicago. Try pulling the release lever while a friend attempts to pull the fuel door open. If you have no friends, wedge something that won’t scratch the paint between the door and fender and then p...
