Agreed that keeping it all at one company can make things more convenient, but I'd also say you're much less likely to get a better deal doing it that way (and probably less flexibility/features as well). As with anything, it's a trade-off. I've also heard too many nightmare stories of people losing...

It's usually a good idea to keep hosting separate from your domain registration so you have more flexibility if you should ever want to leave one service or the other. Some times hosting companies will hold on to your domain and make it difficult to transfer to another registrar if you no longer wan...

I've been playing for a few years too, and like most people say, it just takes a lot of practice. Brad is right that there are literally thousands of references out there to help, but it can be very overwhelming, especially if you don't really know what is good and bad. I personally think something ...

Well, it's been a hectic month with a lot of life changes (ended a 3-year relationship, finding a new place to live, etc.) which meant extra expenses, but I'm finally moving on opening my IRA. I'm taking the commission hit to sell what little I've got at ShareBuilder and am going to open a Roth with...

I recently have been reading up on cash-back/rewards cards and ended up going with using my Discover and the "Get More" program. Basically you get 1% for pretty much everything, and then 5% on specific categories of things that change every quarter (one quarter covers home stuff, one cover...

Yeah, I agree that I need to be more fee-conscious, and for the time being mutual funds will probably be a better investment for me with making smaller contributions. I guess I keep forgetting that I'm not really locked in to them once I start purchasing either, since in the future if I make more mo...

All of the IRA discussion lately has inspired me to get working on contributing to mine. From what I've read and researched myself, I tend to really like what Vanguard has to offer as a company, but am not sure of which would be the best way to invest with them. I am torn between signing up for an I...

I own a few domains and have grand ideas, but not a lot of time to implement them. Whenever I think of something, I at least get the domain in hopes of eventually having the free time to work on them. Here are a few examples: ⋅  ElasticDog.com - My blog that has been around forever, not wr...

Car insurance can and should be different for people in differing situations. Some more info that might be helpful would be, how old is the car that you drive, what kind of car is it, is it paid off/leased/still making payments, how old are you, do you have a lot of assets to protect in the case of ...

I'm a big open source guy and have tried a lot of them. GnuCash is one of the oldest and most well known for double-entry accounting in the Linux world especially. If you're a Linux person, GnuCash was stuck using GTK1 for a LOOOOONG time and is a huge dependency nightmare when trying to install it....

I saw J.D.'s post in another thread about how his checking account was down to $4.55 and I about started having panic attacks myself :-) I do try to keep as much money as possible in my savings account versus checking, but don't really feel comfortable with my checking account dropping below $100 or...

We pay $30/month for cable internet and $60/month for digital cable w/DVR. With taxes and all it comes to around $95-ish per month. I could personally just drop down to internet only and live without cable, but I think my girlfriend's head would explode :-) When you think about it costing a few doll...
