  1. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Hell, Editor Bob is probably a millionaire by now. Greedy sumbitch that he is.
  2. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

      Who in their right mind indeed. I believe Cheesy has probably made several thousand in profit already as well as many, many others. Profit is when you cash out and get more than you put in, if that makes it easier for you.   Himself's blockchain stock is doing just fine, thank you.        
  3. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Without reading the link, what bank would lend money to buy bitcoin?? People must be putting their homes up as collateral. Crazy!
  4. Sorry, Anna66. You're all wrong. jeremytwo said so.  
  5. Bought a small condo. Advice on short term rental contracts?

    What does "maintaining control" mean? Keeping it possibly available if you want to use it yourself?   We've had great renters and just get steady money every month. Simplz.
  6. German housing and mould

    I hope you resealed the bath in tandem.
  7. Tip of the day

    Don't your oven and stove have temp settings?
  8. Bought a small condo. Advice on short term rental contracts?

    I'm curious about your reason to only rent for 1 - 6 months. Wouldn't you rather have a good paying longer term tenant? The handovers and finding new tenants can take a lot of effort and can result in an empty flat not earning anything. Especially if you have to do repairs, etc. after one moves out.
  9. I've just posted a silly photo

    Fastest dog in the world
  10. Yes, my Methodist church lit the candles in church as well but every body didn't have them or advent calendars at home.
  11. As far as I know, it is a Catholic thing in Germany. I don't know about Protestants.   Just another local tradition.
  12. What are you cooking today?

    I'm in South Carolina and we are having Frogmore Stew tonight. That is shrimp, sausages, small new potatoes and half ears of corn all cooked with lots of Old Bay seasoning. We have already covered the dining table with plastic and brown paper for eating. Pour all through giant collander, dump out on the table and pig out.   We will have salad on the side.
  13. Divorcing in Germany with a young child

      If you are depressed, I don't think anything external would help. Please get some counseling if only for yourself.   Your daughter won't have to grow up with bitterness if you and your wife would get couple counseling and learn how to argue/not argue. It saved my marriage and there were no kids at home at the time.
  14. Cool stuff worth sharing

    Very cool stuff! Thanks Techs!
