| Money Talk|| I know market timing is typically frowned upon.... - Volvagia on 1/9/14 at 2:28 am|
But is there merit in holding off opening a new mutual fund with a probable correct imminent?
If it was an already standing investment I would just DCA right through it, but the fact that it is new, and would represent a good size of my portfolio gives me pause. ...
| Gaming Board|| Anyone found any hidden gems during the Steam Holiday Sale? - Volvagia on 1/1/14 at 9:05 pm|
You know....games you otherwise wouldn't have bought (its only a couple of dollars) or wouldn't have been aware off if it didn't pop up on the list of current sales.
My biggest winner is "Don't Starve"
Its a very well polished game where you are dropped in a procedurally generated world ...

| Money Talk|| Can someone explain the difference in focus between VDIGX and VDIAX? - Volvagia on 11/24/13 at 3:36 am|
Both seem to focus on "companies who are committed and capable of growing their dividend over time."...

| Political Talk|| Aside from the drops of coverage, who else is considered having a Cadallic Plan? - Volvagia on 10/29/13 at 8:24 am|
We were informed our plan (which is good, but by no means outrageous, just a little above average) falls under the Cadallic Plan fine/penalty.
Works out to be nearly 3500 an employee a year if my napkin math is right when it rolls in 2018.
Where is that money even going?
| Political Talk|| Does Obama have something on paper to do on Friday if an agreement falls through - Volvagia on 10/15/13 at 7:36 pm|
Or does he make a stand and attempts to have the concept of a debt ceiling declared unconstitutional....
| Political Talk|| In this time of fiscal debate, the real issue for Obama is apparently - Volvagia on 10/5/13 at 7:28 pm|
The team name of the Washington Redskins,
He doesn't see how fan attachment can possibly trump "legitimate concerns"
| Money Talk|| Rolling over a Roth 401k to a Roth IRA - Volvagia on 9/30/13 at 7:24 pm|
I can't seem to find a good and clear answer on this.
Can you convert the entire balance tax free, both contributions and earnings?
And after the 5 year period, can you withdraw tax/penalty free just contributions, contributions+earnings (it seems there is almost a loophole on this, but I dou...
| O-T Lounge|| LSU-BR Fall Break - Volvagia on 9/10/13 at 9:10 pm|
Can any students tell me when it is?
I'm seeing two versions of the fall academic calendar, both hosted on an official domain, with different dates.
Is it really in November that close to Thanksgiving?
I know they try to coincide it with big away games but damn....that late kind of def...
| Money Talk|| Budgetary allocation: Retirement vs Debt - Volvagia on 9/9/13 at 5:15 pm|
I am currently putting in 14% in my 401k attributing for my contribution and the match.
I have a few hundred dollars "leftover" in my budget and I'm going back and forth where to put it.
One option is my Roth at Vanguard, which is appealing due to the flexibility and control it offers versus...
| Political Talk|| Am I the only person wondering that this Syria crap - Volvagia on 8/30/13 at 5:06 pm|
Is less about Obama saving face and more to put distance in the news cycle about all of his scandals with the IRS and NSA?
Now it will all be old news that won't be returned to, except for those "racist divisive Republicans."
And yes, my tin foil hat fits quite nicely, thank you. ...
| Political Talk|| With all of the riots and violence, how (if at all), is GZ protected? - Volvagia on 7/19/13 at 8:05 pm|
Increased patrols in his neighborhood?
Or did he take a personal initiative and went into hiding for things cooled down.
For that matter, how did the cops provide security against an assassination attempt while "clearing datum" of the courthouse after the NG verdict....
| Political Talk|| Just when you thought we were over the hump with the GZ.... - Volvagia on 7/15/13 at 6:50 pm|
CNN just advertised a story by saying essentially:
"Zimmerman was acquitted of killing TM, but why is this woman (picture reveals she is black) thrown to prison for 20 years for firing a warning shot."
| Political Talk|| Is there any penalty at all to the state for bringing a weak case to trial? - Volvagia on 7/13/13 at 5:43 pm|
For instance, let's say they bring a weak case against you....it arguably shouldn't go to trial but it goes there anyway.
Is there ANY compensation in criminal proceedings of you having to pay to defend yourself?
Take this question in general, not specifically regarding the GZ deal. ...

It did well enough internationally that the studios are going ahead with it.
But I bet they wish they had kept the original ending now though; I just don't know how they can do anything now with the framework left in the first one.
Probably is going to have a different director though, appar...

| Money Talk|| Retirement nest egg calculators - Volvagia on 5/30/13 at 5:59 pm|
Anyone have any recommendations?
I find they can vary widely, even with the same input parameters such as inflation, ROI, and pullout rate.
In my case by a factor of over 2 million dollars.
| Money Talk|| So I'm debating timing the market - Volvagia on 5/20/13 at 7:16 am|
Don't look at me like that.
I know, I know.
It's a bad move as a general investing practice.
But I'm wondering if it's a bad move as well regarding lump sum buy ins.
I just feel like I'll kick myself if I drop 5k now only to have it tumble a month from now.
It's also a retirement...
| Money Talk|| Is there anything to be said regarding benefits of staying with the same bank? - Volvagia on 5/12/13 at 11:01 pm|
If I have my checking account, savings account, credit card account, and even a brokerage through the same bank, will that possibly help you out more on a car or home loan because they have more financial info than what would otherwise be on a report, or will it simply be a closed process that they ...
