Re: Mount and Blade Warband: You people stink.

Misery loves company.

I haven't even gotten to the Napoleonic variant yet.

It might be just me, but the game is a lot less fun with guns than it is with bows, crossbows, and throwing weapons. There are some really great mods [more]

Re: another OTC stock

I'm sure there is a good explanation. Like they are just freeing up some funds to buy Alibaba shares on Friday. If I was the CEO of a Chinese shoe company, that is exactly what I would be doing.

Re: Russell 2000 vs S&P 500

This is another day in the opposite directions. Dow is flat at this time, S&P500 is off by 0.3% and Russell 2000 is off by 1.3% and getting weaker. I would think that if the US economy is the cleanest shirt in the laundry basket and a strong [more]

Russell 2000 vs S&P 500

Isn't it a little odd that there seems to be a divergence between the large caps and the small and mid caps on a day to day basis lately?

Today the Russell was up .58%
S&P 500 was up .09%
DJIA was down .12%

Re: How much cash?

Sounds beautiful. But 7% property tax? Holy crow, what is that paying for? It just goes to show how different tax systems are from one place to another. Here in Canada, I've never heard of property taxes being more than 2%, although provincial [more]

I'll just go back to the OP. I'm in a unique situation since I cashed out my 401K and rolled it to an IRA. I did this in April. I have been waiting for the inevitable correction that never seems to quite get here. As of right now I am 40% equities [more]

30 seconds after I had made the original post I thought, “Why didn't I put in Grim Fandango?” Add Grim Fandango to the list. Grim Fandango has an outside possibility due to it being remastered PS4, PS Vita, Windows, and Mac OS X. Maybe if the [more]

I’ll just give a quick AAR on the status of my campaign against the aliens in Long War. I’m about 11.5 months into it. If I remember correctly the vanilla campaign lasted about 15-18 months, so I would say that I am late mid game. I went through and [more]
