Re: how many times have we heard this

Speaking of insurance, there's a Major nor'easter is barreling up the East Coast that'll probably do a lot more damage to insurance companies bottom lines.

We are driving right through that thing on Thursday morning on our way to [more]

Re: HFT speed bump approved

HFT is pervasive. Suissebear's post (and link) gave you a quick summary of how they "move the market" in their favor and deny others the highest price (when selling) and they scoop the lowest price when buying--because they find a price [more]

Re: New Game

I paid $15 for the base version, but probably will buy all the expansion packs if/when I can beat the vase version. It's super hard! I haven't lived past 24 days -- froze to death when winter came. I've also starved to death twice, been trampled by a [more]

New Game

Don't Starve.

But you should probably just ignore this, because you may end up playing it all weekend and angering any nearby family.

Re: HFT speed bump approved

A single HF Trade would have minimal--true. But HFT is not about tiny amounts--or there would be no HFT. Thus, as HFT does, in fact, extract a large amount of cash profit out of the markets (and HFT does not usually lose a lot), that means HFT [more]

Re: HFT speed bump approved

Nice try, but no cigar. HFT is way ahead of the typical investor.

HFT is way ahead of the typical stock trader, maybe. The typical investor buys stocks for years or decades, typically inside a fund, and the effect of HFT amounts to a [more]

In more provincial places, our nation never migrated out of that. One of my closest friends, a software developer from Long Island making plenty of money in [more]

Re: OT: Is There a Doctah in The House?

Not necessarily. This can be done under a regional block with IV sedation. At a minimum, I'd ask your anesthesiologist about the block just for post-op pain relief and still have a general anesthesia.

Re: OT: Is There a Doctah in The House?

Thanks again to everybody who weighed in on my Elbow the other day. I met with a surgeon last week. Has anyone ever talked to a surgeon who *wasn't* mile-a-minute smart and confident about everything? I think they have to have that kind of [more]

Re: What is driving this increase?!

Somehow I wasn't prepared for the sales tax to push it over 800 bucks but I still walked out the door with it!
