re: Anybody here have YouTube TV? - KingofZydeco
[quote]Better than directv[/quote] I just switched from Directv as well. About 1 month in and don’t regret it one bit. I have the app on my main Samsung tv and the other 3 TVs I have YouTubeTV app sideloaded. I picked up x2 Firesticks from bestbuy a few weeks ago for $15 each. Such a steal!...

re: ATT Early Termination Fee - LA Taxes Question - KingofZydeco
So I was expecting 20$/month, but apparently since I was a return customer from years before the fee was only $10/month. I actually think they may have screwed that part up, but I’m not complaining!...

ATT Early Termination Fee - LA Taxes Question - KingofZydeco
So I finally had enough of ATT/Directv and cancelled 1 year into my 2 year contract. I knew I would be on the hook for a portion of the ETF. What surprised me was the taxes on this $130 ETF were ~10%. My normal bill only had taxes of ~2-3$. Is is normal to charge taxes on a ETF from ATT? Why...

re: Experience with new Cox StraightUp Internet? - KingofZydeco
I’m about to jump the boat from att/directv to cox/youtubetv. They have a 1 year special for 30$ per month for I think 30mbps. You have to own or rent modem, but even still it’s cheaper than $50. I’m planning on signing up for the $30 plan, then doing the 50/month in a year. I would think 30mb...

re: Appraisal Contingency - KingofZydeco
[quote]Fire your agent.[/quote] +1.... Unfortunately, I've had the experience of working with bad/ill-informed realtors and good ones. If the seller feels like the house is worth more than the appraisal comes back for and is unwilling to drop the price, you'll be out your appraisal $ and inspec...

re: Appraisal Contingency - KingofZydeco
There is typically a contingency in the purchase agreement for the buyer to have an “out” of the purchase agreement if the appraisal comes in lower than the contract price. This by no means forces the seller to drop the price to the appraisal price. Now sellers often will since most people are hes...

Excel Macro Help - KingofZydeco
I'm working on a spreadsheet and I found a macro that copies current day information from and output page ("Data Copy") to the last empty row of a log page ("Historical Data").

re: Selling Iphone on Swappa? And service swap idea. - KingofZydeco
Make sure you go through the process of getting ATT to unlock them after paying them off. I did what you are saying once, but the phone was automatically NOT unlocked. I had to request through the ATT website. I didn’t realize until the buyer complained that the phone wasn’t actually unlocked. As lo...
