When to turn a side hobby into a business/spp

I do small wood working side projects on the weekends for folks, and its been purely a hobby that I may net a little profit from but I've never thought of it as being a 'job'. I have a full time job, and have no intention of trying to build this into anything more than a side gig. A friend of mine a...

Re: PC Build Thread 2020

Re: PC Build Thread 2020

Yea, what a time to be a PC geek. I upgraded to a X570 ASUS TUF MB and a Ryzen 3900X in the spring and just got a Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVME 4.0 and man is that thing fast. I had a regular SATA SSD, which obviously are great as well but it was ~ 500MB/s v.s. 4800MB/s when I benchmarked! I have a 650W P...

Re: Repair plasma television or get new TV?

When it comes to electronics, I try to buy the newest/best thing there is at the time of need. There is always something else on the horizon, or a reason to wait for the next model. As an owner of an OLED (C7, so older), I'm simply blown away by it. I got a reasonable deal on my TV back in 2017, but...

Re: Do you drink drink coffee and why or why not?

Yup, usually 3 cups during the week, and one on the weekends. I love the taste of good black coffee. I occasionally wont drink coffee for a week or so, just to see if I'm getting dependent on it. The first time I did it, I could definitely tell, but after 5-6 days it was fine. I use an Aeropress at ...

Re: Well, I am market timing... Wish me luck.

I'm fairly novice at this stuff, but since the market's natural state is growth, I wonder how many times the market has been at an all time high?

If it was at its all time high yesterday, and it went up one point today, it turns out selling 'at the all time high' was a good idea for about 24 hours.

House buying decision. To buy or not

Working through something in my head and just would like an opinion. I just took a job in DFW area last summer. I moved from Arizona which I really liked, to Texas which is OK. The job is going well, but there's a little bit of an asterisk there. It can be stressful at times (but all jobs can be) ho...
