re: Extending WiFi range about 1000 feet? - JonTheTigerFan
They told her it would cost $5,000, basically trying to talk her out if it. This is in East Feliciana parish so it's pretty rural. I'm thinking they're just being lazy and don't want to mess with it. I ordered 2 Ubiquiti Nanostations. They get great reviews on Amazon. Thanks for the input guys. W...

Extending WiFi range about 1000 feet? - JonTheTigerFan
My mom just moved onto a piece of property given to her by her sister. Their houses are less than 1000 feet apart. The cable company in the area says they can't run cable that far (bull shite I know but they won't budge). What are her options (if any) for using her sister's wifi?...

re: Question about building credit with cards? - JonTheTigerFan
[quote]I'm aware of that. There is also a spot on the credit report that shows the highest balance the card or loan has had. If you are now at 0 balance but at some point in time you were maxed on a limit they can see that.[/quote] Oh yeah I see what you're saying. You're talking about the highes...

re: Question about building credit with cards? - JonTheTigerFan
[quote]If I'm correct the only historical point that is on the report is the high credit at some point in time on the account?[/quote] The statement balance is what is reported to the bureaus. Even if you max out your cards every month, if you paid them all off right now, the next time the statem...

re: Purchasing a car out of state: taxes/fees/registration - JonTheTigerFan
I recently bought a car from a private party from Alabama. The bill of sale will need to be signed by both parties and notarized. The title will need to be signed by both parties but we didn't get that notarized. I took the bill of sale, title and proof of insurance (they will likely do the initial ...

re: Philanthropic Point Ranking - JonTheTigerFan

re: Best Credit Monitoring/protection services? - JonTheTigerFan
Credit Karma and Credit Sesame both have free services that will alert you when you have changes in your credit. Credit Karma offers TransUnion and Equifax. Credit Sesame pulls from Experian. They both provide good information but just ignore the credit score because it may or may not be close to wh...

Pearl St. (Haven't been in a couple years though) The Castle at Dunleith Biscuits and Blues Fat Mama's for margaritas Went to Roux 61 a few months ago and was very disappointed. The service was very bad and the food wasn't much better. I've heard great things about it so maybe we went on a bad d...

Well, I don't know what the NOBP agreement is but this is from XOM's batonrougecomplex.com website: A $2,500 Contract Bonus, if ratified on or before March 16, 2015. The Company also agrees to pay any lump sum ratification bonus paid as a result of 2015 NOBP negotiations – in addition to the ab...

Like I said in this post: At some of the union plants, i.e. XOM Baton Rouge, the wage personnel are "Represented Employees" whether they're in the union or not. You can hire in and never pay dues but you're still represented by the union. They have a choice whether or not they join the union but ...

re: Good website to check credit score? - JonTheTigerFan
You can get a free credit report from each of the bureaus once a year. If you want your real FICO score, which almost all lenders use, you will have to pay for it at MyFico.com. Some credit cards, such as Discover IT and Barclaycard give you a free FICO score every month with your statement. If you ...
