Re: Investment Advisor

PS, not sure I will every "sleep at night" with whatever I do. I tend to second guess when advisors question why I might want LLT or gold right now. I think the suggestions posted here are as good as I will get. Will probably do as you said, Mountaineer, at least with part of my assets. Would be eas...

I am near retirement, and I am really scared of investing! I just don't trust myself. But I also don't trust many oth...

Investment Advisor

Hi you all. It has been a while, in part because I got paralyzed in my investment approach this past few years. I am increasingly realizing that, while I generally trust myself (and you all) more than most "professionals," I do not trust myself to review the portfolio and rebalance regularly. My ass...

Question for original forum members

I am wondering if some/many of the original high volume contributors have changed their perspective on the PP over the past few years. So very specific question for those members (such as CraigR, MT, Gumby, Moda, Dualstow, Doodle, Stone, etc) that joined before 2013 AND have more than 1000 posts (i....

Re: TrueCryt

Thanks all. Any advantage of VeraCrypt over just making a 256 encrypted disk image on a Mac?

TrueCryt

Saw something about this on forum recently but can't find it. What do folks recommend for encryption? I like to have sensitive info on a USB drive with me when I travel.

Re: Medical Mistakes Are Actually the Third Leading Cause of Death

The third leading cause of death in house fires is firemen. And their ignorance, stupidity and corruption.

Re: Another Vax Thread

I can't wait until "they" figure out that vaccination causes the so-called behaviors which then "requires" anti-psychotic drugs in babies.  It's like a perpetual motion machine of irrationality with these people!  Anything to make a buck, right??? Good data to support your assertion that this is ca...

Re: Brita faucet filters

Regarding RO demineralizing water, I once suggested that my plan was to remineralize RO water by adding minerals back to it. This is what brewers do to "recreate" the water found where a given beer is produced. At least one person has posted recipes on how to approximate a large number of famous wa...
