I started using it a little over a year ago and haven't looked back. I listen to books instead of the trash on the radio on the way to and from work now and have gone through a lot of books that I would not have otherwise read. I have a gold subscription and it is plenty for me. ...

Just moved a few weeks ago. Got everything I needed at Lowes. Boxes are $2 or less each. Also have bubble wrap, tape, paper and other random moving things that you probably won't need as long as you have more finesse than the Hulk....

On the flip side, I've come across several people with certifications and degrees that can't apply the knowledge contained in those programs. I'm not saying this is you because I don't know you, but it pisses me off when people go brain dump an exam to get a cert and then feel like they're all of a...

I worked at Sherwin for 8 years. Paint is something where the saying "you get what you pay for" holds very true, regardless of brand. In terms of SW's product line, Duration is probably the best you can get in terms of cleanability and durability. It covers very well and leaves an excellent finis...

My ex used to practice this sorcery on me for free...there is definitely some stuff that gets left behind. I just don't know if that crap comes out of my ear or if it's something on the inside of the candle that is designed to make me think it's working. I will say though, you can go stick a Qtip ...

I've had these for years. Used to have a job traveling 75% of the time and I used these on planes all the time. Also at work when people forgot how to control the volume of their voice. I would buy another pair in a heartbeat. Customer service is really good too. After a long time, the pads on ...

You can also write Metasploit plugins with Ruby and use them to steal bitcoins from China. It's a very relevant language in the security community for other reasons as well and I don't anticipate that changing any time soon either.

I had a contract with Ram Heating and Air when I was on the edge of Prairieville/BR and I felt taken care of. Had an issue with them installing a new system in my house when the original one ate it in the middle of the summer a couple of years ago. The owner himself came out and made sure they fix...

Had one with 75% travel before I got married. No way I could do it with a wife. Now that I have a kid on the way it is completely out of the question. Most I would do is 25% and it would have to be an extraordinary opportunity or a last resort....

This. Deal with it. I fail to see how taking 40 hours off earlier in the year is any more productive than taking it during the holidays anyway. 40 hours is 40 hours.
Also, pretty much all my clients are slow during the holida...

I just bought a house out there and I've noticed the same thing over the last couple of weeks. Not only that, while 87 might be around the same price, 89 is crazy high. There was one that I stopped at that was advertising 87 for like $2.89, which was about right at the time. 89 was around $3.54 a...

Can you legally make a birth certificate from scratch if you have it notarized and officialized and all that?

I did check on Angie's List but the prices that they have listed on there are anywhere from like $400 to $3500 for the same company. It would just be from BR to Geismar for me (20 minutes). I got a quote from 2 Men and a Truck and it was like $1300. Just wasn't sure if that was a rip off or not. ...

How expensive is this? I would imagine as long as I packed it all and all they had to do was show up with a truck and load it, they could easily do it in a day. I would prefer to do it myself but I just had shoulder surgery a few weeks ago so putting weight on my arm is still quite painful....
