Re: Portfolio Rebalace Notifier

This reminds me of something that's been on my to-do list for awhile... I've been sitting on the lazyfol.io and lazyfolio.com domains for a couple years now. If I were to throw together a slick-looking web app that let you define a custom portfolio with custom rebalancing bands that pinged you when ...

Re: Establishment Conservative's Guide to the Alt-Right

THE ‘1488rs’ Anything associated as closely with racism and bigotry as the alternative right will inevitably attract real racists and bigots. Calmer members of the alternative right refer darkly to these people as the “1488ers,” and for all their talk of there being “no enemies to the right,” it’s ...

Re: Hooray! Forum is back up!

I use DigitalOcean or Linode for cheap bare metal servers and Google Compute Engine when I need something really reliable + scaleable that's still flexible.

Re: Golden Butterfly Portfolio

I'd like to make the transition to a GB, but stocks seem high right now. Seeing as I'm already 100% PP, there doesn't seem to be much risk in trying to time the move. If you were in a similar position, what event(s) or price level would you wait for before pulling the trigger?

tnt211, look into the Puerto Rico option.

The financial advantages of being a "Digital Nomad"

Pugchief and I were chatting privately, and I realized that some of it might be of interest to the forum. If you're not familiar, the somewhat cheesy term "digital nomad" refers to the subculture of people who travel indefinitely while working remotely (usually from coffee shops or co-working spaces...

Do you expect to have millions, or even a few dozen, following the precepts you establish during your life, when your time capsule is dug up? No, because unless I had a time machine to return to a time of vastly greater superstition and ignorance where I could proselytize to bronze age shepherds, I...

Re: Some Sobran questions for atheists

Sobran also asks what other religious figure claimed the power to forgive sins, as his own? Perhaps a unique claim among the widely practiced faiths of today. Sin is a uniquely Christian concept. Christianity introduces both the problem and the solution. If you don't introduce the problem in the fi...

Don't take this wrong guys, but your comments are even more general than those presented the article - which in my opinion was heavy on satire but you would have to probably be a Christian to get it fully.  It would be helpful in understanding your beliefs, if you could specifically refute the poin...

Re: The Left is eating itself

I've never before heard the phrase "gender fluid" before.  I had to look it up to see if it's a real thing.  So strange! Same here.  "A gender that changes over time."  Gender with time dependency.  G(t) = cos(t)  Ask me my gender, and I'll ask you what time it is.    It seems like gender fluidity ...
