btw, is the Million in 7 years, inflated adjusted, or nominal. That would make a difference too. A million in 7 years is pretty extreme. This blog calls for 7 million in 7 years, which is simply outrageous. Although, I suppose that if you start out with a billion, 7 million is chump change. :wink:

People are allowed to make backup copies of media for personal use. Says who? Seriously, where is that written in law? Just cite the relevant law, and this argument is over. I'm aware of numerous laws explicitly forbidding copying media. The DMCA, for one. Your turn. Disclaimer: IANAL, this is just...

That sounds really cool! A few suggestions: - writing up shopping lists before leaving home. Stores and supermarkets try to create an environment conducive to impulse buying; shopping lists help keep you on track. - researching items online and doing price comparisons and coupon searching to find th...

Anyway, I think the primary reason is that when people got DVD they got a few great new features over VHS: 1. Better quality picture that you can notice on a standard definition TV. 2. Does not deteriorate as quickly over time (the tradeoff being that as it wears out, the consequences are worse wit...

I think what HollyP meant was that some employers in MA only had Domestic Partner benefits because same-sex marriage was not legalized. When that changed, they removed those benefits. Due to yesterday's decision by the CA State Supreme Court, CA employers may follow in those footsteps. Personally, I...

Back on topic... seymour, I believe your first step is to figure out where your expenses. Right now, it sounds like you have no idea what your financial health is; you know how much money you make but you don't know where it goes. My suggestion is that you track your spending for a month. Jonathan o...

I could work my ass off and hate my job for 20 years if it means later I will be able to quit Yeah, it's pretty easy to say that when you're only 18 and have no life experience, but trust me, you'll be getting pretty tired of it around year 10 or 11. Heh, depending on what you choose, it can burn y...

Obviously it can get very complicated, but here is a very rough explanation: Say you buy 50 shares of Acme stock for $100 per share. You've spent $5,000. A year later, the stock is trading at $125 per share. You sell your 50 shares and receive $6,250 (50 * 125). In this example, you've received a $...

Congrats on getting rid of the SUV! Sounds like a wash in the short-term, but a definite plus in the long-term. I'll be interested to see how it affects your overall situation a month from now. Keep the updates coming!

You should definitely avoid using your emergency fund to buy couches; what if a real emergency comes up while your fund is depleted? On the other hand, it is always best to buy with cash. Assuming that the 1 year interest-free payment option really is a no-cost option, you should choose that, provid...
