Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Dude. I'm not religious, but best wishes. You have a lot of good still to do. You make the world a better place. Thank you, Mark. The challenges in life don't stop, but I am doing my best to meet them. On a side note, every painful experience usually has a stand-up comedy bit somewhere in there.

Re: 60-40 Portfolio Won't Prepare Investors for Retirement

I hold a few shares of a low cost 60/40 balanced fund just for fun. I think with international diversification they should do fine. High valuations in U.S. stocks and bonds can be at least partially ameliorated with international allocations.

Re: When someone's opinion differs from yours...

Joking aside, I actually do care when the person I offend is on this forum because I actually care about this community.

If it's reddit I'm neutral. If it's the Knuckleheads forum I can't post anything without throwing shade on someone. It's pretty much a necessity. >:D

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Tor would certainly slow things down to a trickle. Just hiding everything from the ISP in some way shape or form would probably be sufficient for me. I've also considered running a Tor exit node. It's the liability concerns which prevent me from doing so. Anybody have any insights into that? Can't ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I have gigabit fiber coming into the house. It's pretty awesome. Unfortunately it requires a deal with the devil: it's Google Fiber. I've consider routing everything through a VPN of some shape or form, but haven't gotten around to it. Woah, man. That's crazy speed. Also perhaps consider using TOR ...
