Re: Ebola and death- not OT

Generally speaking, secured debt (mortgages) becomes "immediately" due from the net assets of the estate. Note that I put immediately in quotes because most lenders will understand that it takes a while for the family to figure out just [more]

Re: Fair market value

I'd say offer 5-6 thousand... more than she's likely to get at the dealer without entering into "aggressive negotiations," but still trying to get yourself a bargain as well without being insulting to said neighbor.

Re: What to watch?

With everyone recommending various SF stuff, I'm going to go back to your original notion of documentaries, and check that you've seen Ken Burns' two 'magnus opi' in "The Civil War" and "The War"

Re: Gremlins using my internet?

The TV is the more likely culprit, as your TV boxes will get updates and such without your direct intervention.

Re: Gremlins using my internet?

Hard to say without being physically "hands on." It could be anything from the modem responding to an innocuous "Are you powered up?" check from your service provider, to the neighbor hacking in and freeloading on your wifi.

A skimmed card would not have your home address.

The only thing I can think of now is that someone got my card number and home address, ordered an XBox and hoped to intercept the delivery before I got home.

Re: Hollywood Box Office Down 15%

I have never seen a survey that says piracy helps box office revenue. Indeed it's hard to see how that might even possibly work. But if it does, I will start a new business taking stuff off the shelves at WalMart and explaining to them how I'm [more]

Re: Hollywood Box Office Down 15%

Hollywood is sure to scream piracy, even though it seems as if most studies are saying the pirates actually help box office revenue. $8 popcorn (and similar captive audience price gouging) certainly doesn't help things, but the sad truth is, they're [more]

Re: Oil Mistake

I don’t know anyone that has a car that uses 5W 20 oil so I’ll probably use it to top off the oil in DW’s van.
