re: Matchday 6-21 — more like Eatin’ Hazard edition - DukeSilver
[quote]It's the last match of group play. They play them at the same time so no team has an advantage over the others in knowing what they have to do to advance. Playing at the same time puts everyone on a relatively even playing field.[/quote]Ah gotcha, makes sense. ...

re: Attic air sealing and cellulose insulation - Houston - DukeSilver
[quote]Bruh you know how hot it is in the attic right now? When I built my house, the installation of the blown fiberglass in the attic was not expensive at all. 100% worth the cost of having someone do it.[/quote] I'm not concerned with that. If it's a substantial savings and I'm DIYing I'll ...

re: Attic air sealing and cellulose insulation - Houston - DukeSilver
[quote]I'm having insulation added to my attic now. My contractor requested to work nights to avoid the mid-day heat. I immediately hired him upon that request as he was the only one who had the intelligence to think outside the box and get the job done.[/quote]Are you in Houston? How much is he cha...

re: Credit card points via Venmo? - DukeSilver
[quote]I know venmo charges a fee for credit cards, I think like 2 or 3% so this sounds dumb for maybe a 1% difference in points[/quote] Yeah this is what I was thinking but I know sometimes this point stuff can get pretty convoluted so figured I'd ask since I know this board has a few points guy...

Credit card points via Venmo? - DukeSilver
Overheard someone talking about how they have been sending money to a person they know via Venmo with their credit card, then that person just gives them the money back. They do this to earn "free" credit card points. As someone who doesn't really use Venmo there has to be some loophole that mak...

Chicago hotel recommendations - DukeSilver
Similar to the below post, but I'm not concerned with it being overly nice. Anyone have a suggestion for a hotel that's in the best part of the city but that is just a standard embassy suites/marriot/hyatt/etc type place? I want something nice enough but don't plan on being in the room much at a...
