re: The Wild DFW Housing Market--my experience - seawolf06
Houses in this area of NC (Greensboro to Raleigh) priced below $250K are selling in days or hours. I sold in December for a nice profit, but it was also on the market for several months before that. Houses above that $250-300K mark are taking longer, though. Also, supply is increasing as neighbor...

re: HTC 11 Leaks. - seawolf06
The only thing that has stopped my from going to OnePlus is the charging standard. I'm entirely setup for Qualcomm Quick Charging which will do nothing for the OnePlus models. Why they have to be the only one different is infuriating....

re: Logistical Tax Question - seawolf06
IRS website has a withholding calculator, or used to. If you don't want to owe, you can either switch your withholding to "single/0" as suggested, or you could have an additional $ amount withheld each pay period.
