re: New guitar obsession. Maple neck and fretboards. It's not natural. Lol - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Any drawbacks to it other than the early signs of wear[/quote] I have never heard of this. If anything I have more wear on rosewood fretboards, as it's a much softer wood, and over the years your fingers press little divots into the fretboard. As someone else said, maple is much easier to c...

[quote]CPM's Achilles' heel - leaving pitchers in too long[/quote] Maybe in general, but last night we lost because he pulled a pitcher too quickly. If his #1 goal was to win last night's game he would've left Gilbert in for another couple of innings. Instead he pulled him to give other guys a cha...

re: This Job Market Stinks - Cold Cous Cous
Be sure your resume isn't underselling your abilities and the full scope of your experience at your last job. For all the warnings you hear about not lying on your resume, I have had to work with two close relatives whose resumes made them look much less qualified than they actually were. Some peopl...

re: Light Rail Dowtown NOLA to MSY Pros and Cons - Cold Cous Cous
I don't understand why they don't encourage more flights to the Lakefront airport. Way more convenient to downtown. Yes I realize that it can't handle big planes but a lot of these cheap tourist-oriented airlines just operate puddle jumpers anyway. ...

re: Learning to play on a crappy guitar - Cold Cous Cous
Buying crappy guitars makes no sense these days. There are very solid, giggable instruments available in the $200-300 range, especially used. And if you buy used you can probably get 90% of your money back if you decide it's not for you. Whereas instruments in the $100 range are toys or worse, and...

re: Best way to payoff mortgage early? - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Would it be best to invest $X per month into a decent mutual fund for the next 6-10 years and then use that to pay off the mortgage or would it be best to put the same $X towards principle every month?
