An oldie but goodie is http://www.download.com. It'll list things as freeware or shareware and let you know limitations, reviews, etc. I concur with Cemiess on Ubuntu. I just loaded it, and I think it'd be great for kids. It's free, and has a MUCH lower chance of getting viruses (not many folks writ...

I'm with the synthetic folks (not the cylons). If I could do it over again, that's the route I'd choose. You'll get much more diamond for the money, and you can get something with some size to it that'll fit your budget. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthetic_diamond I just wish that was around when...

Yeah, I don't see the big deal. When I like someone, I joke with them. This person is obviously trying to joke around with "John"...when she talked about serial killers, it was clearly a joke. Would someone make a joke (or comment) if they really thought someone was a killer? No, of course...

I think you should "go with your gut". If you hate your job, maybe going parttime immediately is a good option. While I miss the people I worked with at my last job, I certainly don't miss the work...and my current job is much more satisfying and higher paying. Let me pose this question: I...

If you're really feeling guilty about this, have them pay for your first three years, then foot the bill yourself for the final year, while you still work for this company...debt paid in my mind.

This is an interesting discussion, good stuff Rush! While I didn't enjoy the obligatory flamewar (skipped those posts), this is an interesting topic. I think most folks start out their careers like Bill's wife...it's definitely easier than consulting or starting your own business. I like kick_push's...

I'm definitely not knocking the stay-at-home Moms, but without two incomes, your chances of being debt-free are not that great. I recently made the last payment on our house, and I can tell you, it's a great feeling (it'll be better once our bank account recovers...I was a bit anxious to pay it off)...

oops, my mistake :oops: Trading services on any sort of level is certainly not something I'm familiar with. Interesting topic though.

While this certainly isn't from an expert source, I think about the old spaghetti western cowboy movie For a few dollars more oftentimes when reading GRS posts. In that movie, the main villain, Indio, says to his fellow bandits in a chilling Spanish accent, "The problem isn't getting the money,...

My problem with bartering is that I never know when it's appropriate. For instance, sure, go for it when buying a car, perhaps a house...but clothing? shoes? food? To me, that seems inappropriate and could possibly lead to a highly awkward situation. I don't want to insult someone by offering them h...

First off, welcome SJean! I see your point...when you're fresh out of college, 4K can seem like a good bit. I like the suggestions made so far...and you made a good point about being able to find alternate means of income. What would happen if your car or other means of transportation broke down (an...

While that's certainly a personal decision, I have to commend you for looking at the larger picture and suggesting that you back out of the joint account. If fiscal management is the only issue at hand, separate accounts would definitely be in order in my mind. I believe JD had a post about this rec...

I like what DC Portland had to say about the GRS site and its spin on the psychological affect money has on people. In my mind, it's not so much the money that affects my happiness, but that debt is the anti-happiness...to me, that's the correlation. Having a million certainly won't immediatly make ...

DC Portland hit the nail on the head. I think we can all agree that there are inifite paths to decrease debt, but the real question is, what then? Many have answered that they will continue to save and invest...that's great, but what do you plan to do with all that money? Swim in it, like Uncle Scro...
