    New ValveTime Design: Let us know what you think!

    Another vote for brightening the post text, and changing the reds. Red traditionally means, this needs your attention NOW, and it is being used almost randomly for things that really aren't terribly important. The POST and EDIT buttons are fine, the NAME color should change, the NEW post flag...

    Anyone here saving to a retirement account?

    Mutoid hit the nail on the head with the savings account issues. If your friend isn't getting interest on that savings account that outpaces inflation, he is LOSING money in the savings account. You need to keep an emergency fund in savings, not everything you ever make. Your typical Joe will...

    Your Rate of return being 10%? Lower? Higher?

    Anyone here saving to a retirement account?

    I personally use Vanguard with a Roth IRA. Roth is an after tax IRA, your funds don't get taxed when you remove them and you also aren't forced to take disbursements from it when you reach a certain age (as you are with a traditional IRA). So if you are doing well financially when you reach...

    Anyone here saving to a retirement account?

    When you are talking compounding returns, a little money now goes further than a lot of money later. The contribution limit for IRAs is $5,500 per year which is $458 per month to hit the maximum yearly contribution. So after 10 years you'll only have put in a maximum $55,000... you'll need to...

    Anyone here saving to a retirement account?

    I know quite a few of us have been here for a long time... Long enough that many should be planning for their futures. I'm curious how many of you over the age of 21 have a retirement account of some flavor (401K, Traditional or Roth IRA) and are regularly contributing toward it? We can also...

    External Harddrive

    It copies to a normal file/folder structure, no proprietary formats. The purpose of the software is that it is completely set and forget. All he has to do is save his stuff either on his desktop folder or to one of the drives and it will automatically be replicated to the other two, three, or...

    External Harddrive

    What software are you using to backup with anyway? I'd definitely recommend FreeFileSync as it does differential transfers (nothing is copied if nothing has changed) and it uses Volume Shadow Copy for locked files which means backing up an OS drive works superbly.

    External Harddrive

    I have dual 4TB USB 3.0 Seagate drives that I use for backup with FreeFileSync. I get about 80 to 120MB/s transfer for large files. Definitely recommend the newer USB standard if you are upgrading... when you are talking multiple TB's it makes a huge difference.

    Just got a dash-cam

    This is the sequel to my robotic vacuum post ;) Anyone remember the meteor that whizzed over Russia not to terribly long ago? Apparently everyone has a dash-cam there so there was lots of pretty cool footage floating around. Also, it's seems to be a thing for pedestrians to fling themselves...

    Just got a robotic vacuum...

    If anyone of you finds yourself unwilling or unable to vacuum as regularly as you like (or dislike!) then I've got to say one of these little guys just might be for you. I had found that despite my OCD tendencies and neat streak I still don't keep up on the vacuuming, and when I do I need to...

    The Walking Dead Season 3 - Welcome to Prison

    The show has taken a SHARP rise in quality this season. They've knocked every episode out of the park so far.

    Game of Thrones thread with lots of books spoilers inside spoiler tags

    It better have a dwarf in it. Dwarf porn is best porn.

    I'd have gotten a newer fan, that one looks a bit rough.

    Dexter Season 8 (tag spoilers)

    I feel that Dexter's boat will have an important part to play in the ending.

    Dexter Season 8 (tag spoilers)

    His side hobby is blood spatter analysis for the police. I don't see him getting in trouble for that either :P
