Finding an ancestor

How does one find information on a deceased relative? My great-great grandpa came over here from ireland in the late 1800's. Some say Galway, others say Sligo. Could it be possible that he had no social security number? Where do I begin my search for info? I have looked on any and every website and invested mucho dinero in a 10 cd faimly tree maker, all with zero luck. So, what next?

I just found out that this girl who goes to my school (who I see around a lot) has an LJ. And I just commented to an entry telling her so. She seems like a neat person and all that, but I was always paranoid that someone at school would find my journal and use it to blackmail me. (I'm paranoid like that.)

Despite all this, is it okay to friend this girl?

Penis face

Have you ever put your glasses over your genitalia, thus making a face where glasses = eyes and penis = a nose? If you have no penis (or even if you do), have you done this to others?

Don't lie.

Amazon feedback

Does anyone know how long it takes Amazon to respond to a complaint about a user?

I bought a book the other week from another user, it was advertised as hardback and in very good condition when I got it I found it was paperback and the pages were mildewed - as well as that there was something sticky on the cover (first thing in the morning sticky stuff on your hands isn't very pleasant).
I left feedback of the user as a low rating and he e-mailed me shouting at me, saying that the book was in good condition, saying it wasn't advertised as hardback (It says clearly that it was a hardback I ordered from him) and he is threatening to give me a low rating back, my inbox is flooded with abusive e-mails from this user - which I just don't think is right.

Was I somehow wrong in being displeased with the condition the book was in?
Fair enough it was second hand but no where near as it was advertised and filthy and there is certainly no need for the user to send abuse via e-mail to me for a bad rating.
Was a complaint to Amazon the best way to go about it?
