24,000? 34,000? I forget the stat. What does the marketshare look like for devicemakers? I know there are more running Android than iOS, but what company is out there selling as much hardware as APPL is in the mobile handset/smartphone space?
The sheer number of credit cards and one-touch buyers...

Watched a person try to pay off a fine with pennies. Saw him get hauled into court and given definitive payment parameters with the force of a court order and specific legal remedies for failing to do so.

Quarter House on Chartres. If you're walking away from Bourbon, pass Acme Oyster House on your right. At the corner take a right. It's on your right.

Good advice. I'll say that I also considered a PMP early on because job options looked slim and I'm pretty good at coordinating and all things PM. I received similar advice and just kept on plowing through my positions, networking and finding the right opportunity....

I've got most of the recordings he's ever done since the late 90's. Think he's tremendous.
He's scored several films-including Monster-and recorded the first EDM album in true 5.1 with visual videos accompanying the music inspired by the music.
He just crowdfunded a new albusm to remaster tra...
