re: How prestigious do you view an MBA to be? - Bacchus on 1/23/17 at 6:44 pm
[quote]An engineer with an MBA is a deadly combo for career direction. [/quote] I have an EE degree from LSU and an MBA from SMU and I agree with this statement. It opened the door with my current employer as they targeted MBAs from SMU. It also put me on an accelerated promotional track and ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Mortgage Advice - Bacchus on 11/29/16 at 7:10 pm
I think you have it backwards. You're not going to pay less closing costs AND get the lower interest rate! You're paying $789 for a 4% rate or $987.50 for the 3.875% rate. Like others have said, the smaller payment by $11 a month has a breakeven of roughly 18 months. So, if you plan on staying i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Official Battlefield 1 Open Beta Thread - Bacchus on 8/31/16 at 11:57 pm
Same here. Never spawned with a weapon. Joined a squad to get into a vehicle to try to shoot someone - vehicle gets destroyed, so I hop out with no weapon and immediately get slaughtered. Understand it's a beta, but at least make sure everyone has a weapon in damn war game. The E3 demo didn't se...

re: Spin-Off: BS in Engineering Paired with MBA - Bacchus on 7/29/16 at 2:48 pm
I graduated from LSU with a B.S. in EE and went to work in Dallas after graduation for a defense contractor. During my time there, they offered a program where they would partner with SMU to pay for an Executive MBA. 100% reimbursement - I couldn't refuse. I left the company shortly after graduat...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Roman Harper rejoining the Saints? - Bacchus on 6/1/16 at 9:25 pm
What a horrible article! The Saints have not expressed an interest in bringing back Harper. The author of the article merely floated the idea himself on Twitter. The rest of the article is just background on Harper with no actual news or revelations from actual sources....

Need two managers for 10-team keeper league - Bacchus on 3/18/16 at 10:02 am
Standard 5 x 5 scoring with OBP replacing AVG. 25 man rosters with two N/A spots to stash prospects. 8 players can be kept. Cost is draft pick in round prior to when they were drafted last year. Active league, so desiring active managers. You’ll be taking over one of two teams, so you’l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: People parking in front of your house on the street - Bacchus on 6/22/15 at 4:16 pm
It upsets me when other people park in front of my house, but mostly because it doesn't make sense to me. I realize it's city property and they can park there for 24 hours before they have to move, but why in front of my house? My neighbors will have company and they'll park in front of my house i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Need a 10th manager for Fantasy Baseball league - Bacchus on 3/13/15 at 8:39 pm
10 team points keeper league with typical categories. OBP used instead of AVG is the only curve ball. Standard roster sizes except you get a IF on offense. You'll be taking over a team that finished 8th, so you'll get the third overall pick. You can keep up to 8 players, but you'll have to give ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Would you support a truly flat fee tax? - Bacchus on 1/22/15 at 6:08 pm
I think you meant the budget is $3 trillion, and not $3 billion, but yes, I would support a flat tax. I actually like the idea of persons under 18 and over 65 not paying any federal tax, and only those between those ages would have to pay. However, with the size of the federal budget, that's far t...
