It's worth checking the various coupon sites if you go the crossover route. Codeweavers seem to usually have some sort of deal going on.

I've been rereading John Minford's translation of Tao Te Ching and attempted to ape the style.

Power tools amplify lack of skill

And allow poor decisions

To mingle in the dust

behind the drywall

The neat thing about working on a room that was finished by the previous home owners is that even if you fuck up badly, everything else was so poorly done that nobody will be able to tell it was you that fucked up.

That said, I don't think the drywall we hung on the ceiling last night was too poorly done. The water turned out to be coming from a disused dryer vent that the old owners had tucked into the ceiling when finishing the basement. Naturally they left it connected to outside though. So it dumped humid outside air directly on the AC duct. Condensation city.

I've seen that point of view brought up a few times in discussions where people were arguing that this isn't really QE because they are overnight loans that are 100% backed.

Don't understand it well enough to say how true it is. It feels very glass half full to me, and the two week terms would definitely pour some of that water out of the cup. Which is why is why I thought it was interesting.

I think we need an updated graph of KB's ski jump to tell.

$90b is gonna be on two week terms that overlap.

So if you buy the "it's the same $75B over and over again" perspective, they are now up to a minimum of $165B out.

Dropped off some groceries for the UAW strikers.

Our home improvement project has stalled out. Ducts are full of water. Gotta get some HVAC person out to make them less so.

Steph grew some Reapers and is trying to ferment them. Peppers are a dick to ferment. So we finally have picked up some glass weights and vacuum seal lids to handicap the odds in our favor. Last couple of batchs of peppers we tried to ferment ended up molding.

    One UPS truck identified on the platform has 10 reports out against it and 27 citations, for example. Safe Lanes can bring that information to UPS’s attention, ask them to strengthen driver trainings, and get bad drivers off the roads.

A) UPS already has the information.

B) UPS driver training is one of the few areas where the company actually shines.

I mean, you might not leave knowing how to do the job, but your defensive driving skills will be out the wazoo. Internally drivers are accountable for pretty much all accidents, including ones where the fault lies with the other vehicle. The bar is avoidability and pretty much everything is avoidable in retrospect.

The reason you've got drivers parking in bike lanes is because UPS finds it cheaper paying the odd ticket than paying every driver making $32/hr to eat up more time by parking considerately and lugging parcels a longer distance from the package car.

    But the survey also looked at “underbanked” households, which have a bank account but still elect to use services like check cashing, money transfers, payday loans, and pawnshops. Little has changed in those numbers, as the percentage of the underbanked was 19.9% last year compared to 20% in 2013, a modest 0.1% change.

"last year" being 2015.

It has been setting in an anthology on my "books to by" list for a while. I'm trying (failing) to read down what I already have before I aquire too much more though.
