Re: powerline question

Instead of a powerline adapter and another router, I think I'd recommend a network extender. Seems like you could position the router and the extender to get good coverage on both sides of the fireplace chimney.

Re: Now hear this!

I OFTEN use a Linux Live CD to test hardware when Windows doesn't seem to be working. GOOD way to discern between hardware problems and software problems.

And I've been fixing computers for 21+ years now... so I do have a bit of experience [more]

Re: Split Question

Split adjusted cost basis is what you use.

If your 10 shares were purchased at $40 per share, now they've split and you have 20 shares that cost you $20 each (split adjusted).
It all works out that way.

Re: Creating a partition

SOunds like your second drive is part of a RAID array to me.
I would make sure if that's the case that I know how to properly deal with RAID. NOT the same as a stand-alone drive.

Re: Split question

This is just my opinion, based on nothing more than my observations of Starbucks over the last 15 years. And yes, I've owned Starbucks for 15 years.

If you're what I would call a "Stock Market Gambler" then it might be in your best [more]

Re: 2:1 Split Announced

I suspected this would happen as the stock neared $100 point.

Re: Starbucks Corporation

I've been buying and holding for the last 15 years. Don't plan on selling now!
