Re: Bitcoin

People have been predicting the demise of bitcoin for years now. I purchased a few 5-6 years back for a very small amount apiece and decided to sit on them forever.

Re: Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University ??? worth it?

Re: Do you think Ric Edelman is correct, never pay down mortgage

There are lots of good arguments in here refuting the notion of not paying off your mortgage, but definitely not refuting what Edelman advocates. For example, Edelman never advocates "mortgaging your home to the hilt", for sure. He advocates putting down a payment of 20% initially to avoid...

Re: Which Roku?

My understanding is that there is a "new in 2015 roku 2" that has the same exact processor as the roku 3, which pretty much makes the fancier remote control the only difference between the 2 and the 3. Well not the only difference, since the 2 is less expensive.

Re: Thinking of getting a Masters in I/O Psychology

Uhmmmm... If you are a technical software developer and looking for a change in career, in psychology, it tells a lot. I'm not exactly looking for a total career change. Many people who graduate with a degree in I/O Psychology end up working in HR deparments. I couldn't see myself working in HR. I ...
