    All this talk about adding extra payments got me curious so I added an extra payment adjustment to my mortgage payoff calculator. You can add an extra payment once a year, twice a year or every month...

    My guess from looking at the pictures is that it wouldn't matter whether the t-stat was set to heat or cool if the outdoor stat was bad. It looks like the outdoor stat just takes a call for the heat...

    Anyone who has $10,000,000 probably can't live off $100,000 a year either, unless they inherited it.

    I think you're missing a decimal point. 10,000,000 at 1% is $100,000 a year so 1/12 of that is $8,333. I think you're right about investing for interest with today's rates. Any thing less than 1/2...

    That's another thing to factor in but you can also factor in the tax write off you get on the interest you would have paid if you didn't pay the extra money towards your house too. Not quite as...

    It's all a numbers game so it depends on how the money you spend on the principal could grow if you invested it verses how much you would save in interest over the life of the loan. For instance on a...

    Now that your house is paid off what do think would happen if you had to go to the hospital with no insurance? There's a chance you could lose it. Hospital collection policies can be brutal, even...

    It's a good feeling knowing your programs are running on an operating system that you never need any activation code no matter how many times you re-install. Even if it wasn't free I'd still buy it.

    If you Google netflix and ubuntu and you'll probably find a way to do it. I assume you'll need to install Wine which is a Windows emulator but there are a lot of Linux users doing Netflix.

    Glad to hear you got it working. One of the advantages of the live CD/DVD/flash drive is that you can test to see if things work before you install it onto your hard drive. Ubuntu has a great...

    If this is happening on Heat Pumps there's a possibility that it is the reversing valve sticking instead of the compressor running backwards. The symptoms are similar and there can be a grinding...

    The first thing you want to do if you haven't already is make a hard backup of your system in case of a failure or mistake during installation. You shouldn't have to wipe your computer to set up an...

    I'm not sure if anything is going to help this kind of problem. About the only thing we can do is turn off cookies which might help a little but not much plus it might make browsing a little more...

    Using Linux on a computer is like using over the counter parts in the field. Once you know how to do it, a whole new world of options open up.

    What really bothered me was when that commie loving Ronald Reagan extended daylight savings time in 1986.

    I like it too. I like having more daylight to work in. Evidently the farmers don't like it but I wouldn't expect everyone to like it. If it was enacted by a Republican president, the same ones who...

    That is true for most of the basic drivers but it's always good to test the OS before installing it. Since there's so many versions of Linux, they're not all using the same kernel and each version...

    That's a good question and it's always a good idea to go on a Linux forum and ask about any particular laptop you're thinking about buying to see if anyone can tell you everything will work. What I...

    I tell my customers to stay away from those 1" pleated filters. Too much restriction, especially if it's a free air return because the size is usually smaller than a boxed return. If you're talking...

    I agree but:
    Don't you know that truth and logic are not allowed in this argument. The insurance companies and Rush Limbaugh have told us that a national health care system is Socialism. There is no...
