    For old-timers on ER.org

    LOL. When did any of that happen? Also, if the new rules are that we can't discuss people who came or went without checking in with the mod team, I'm glad I don't stop by. Rather draconian policy and message. "Don't talk amongst yourselves or we'll lock a thread".:rolleyes: Ha ha ha...goodbye...

    When the site hit critical inertia, I coined the term SOAK. Source Of All Knowledge. We had enough people to answer nearly any question.

    I think that I'm me, but I could be a clone. Or some kind of android. Who'd know the difference?:laugh:

    As many times as it takes! In other news, I decided to defer taking social security. An unexpected problem arose where I didn't need it and it'd cause me to make too much money.:blush: I still love my paid off house though.

    I've seen him here and there. Mostly there.:dance: And he is about to start looking at colleges. He's a little **** just like his dad. I'll have to look through this thread and shake a few trees!:greetings10:

    Calling all Texans

    I had some doubts yesterday. Turned out I just needed a nap. And you and AARP can take that "at your age" stuff and well, I'd say more but I hear the moderators here can be rather pesky?:dance:

    Calling all Texans

    Dude, that sounds like I'm dead! Definitely not! I still have my shoes on. I'm pretty sure you're still alive if you've managed to keep your shoes. Not much of an online person these days. As some may have noticed, it tends to eat my time. Short one? I'm 60 now, so the 39 year old early...

    Firecalc updated through Jan 2020

    So far so good! How are ya buddy? I was just using firecalc the other day for the first time in a while and tuned in a few folks on it. I haven't heard from them in a couple of days, so I assume they're still face deep in numbers! Got me thinking about the good old days, and our sleepy little...

    Nooks becoming real Android tablets

    My bad, the hd+ has a 1920x1280 resolution, not 1080.

    PPACA, Obamacare and General Comments

    It comes from looking at your finances as a whole, rather than in little boxes where you can arrive at the decision you really want more easily. By paying off my loans, my withdrawal rate is quite low, since all I have to pay are my monthly bills, food and entertainment. As a result, my 1040...

    PPACA, Obamacare and General Comments

    Hmm, typed in a long post and e-r.org fell off the internet for a minute! Weird. Short version: Since I got divorced, I need my own h/c. Got declined from my current provider (kaiser) because a few years ago I was prediabetic and prehypertensive. As any kaiser patient knows, they love giving...

    Nooks becoming real Android tablets

    And the cool part is they just dropped the prices on the HD+ to $140-something for the 16gb and 179 for the 32gb. Target, walmart, bestbuy and B&N direct are selling at this price. They're getting out of the hardware/tablet business and tried to sell the entire nook division to Microsoft, who...

    Peer to peer lending

    [mod edit] I've passed one year with LC. The short version is I cleared almost 8K on a 60k investment, after defaults. The vast majority of defaults I got were loans I wouldn't buy today, knowing what I know. Basically using the same filter mentioned previously. My "NAR" is still over 13%...

    I'm not sure, but I think the french versions just have some symbols on the keyboard...I think you can set the language to english with no problems. These are french CANADIAN models, not from France.

    Peer to peer lending

    Funny, I was going to say the same thing about a number of you folks! :) I'm afraid I find the signal to noise ratio here somewhat worse than the last time I was here. I'm not getting anything out of this, and it seems many people don't want me to put anything into it either.

    Peer to peer lending

    Perhaps a lack of unnecessary risk aversion is why I'm stupidly rich and retired in my 30's? Just sayin'... The average fico score I'm lending to is over 700 (so much for the "ne'er do wells) and in case you haven't noticed, everyone has a .com these days, while these notes are written by an...

    Surface tablet anyone?

    It always sounds good, but I've never been able to install linux on a machine without hunting for drivers and editing 12 configuration files, plus getting razzed by teenagers on support forums when you ask a question. I've had all sorts of issues ranging from "There is no driver for that...

    Cheap computers

    Lenovo's outlet has been having some stupid sales on desktops and laptops. Last time I owned a thinkpad was before lenovo bought the brand out, so I can't vouch for the slabs, but I hear they're just okay. Desktop wise, however, they've been unloading small form factor through large tower...

    Surface tablet anyone?

    I agree, its ME and Vista all over again, although vista was somewhat less crappy than ME. I don't see much reason to go to win8 unless you have more than 4 cores (the win8 scheduler is better) or you're hankering for a small improvement in kernel speed. I ran the preview for a...
