"How & Why" books--intro to engineering
This came up once before but not much of a response?
When I was young, there was a series of books for kids called "How &
Why". IIRC, one was on bridges, the other on buildings in general.
Others covered all sorts of sciences--electricity, geology, etc.
These were an excellent introduction to engineering. I remember the
books explaining things like compression strength, shearing strength,
and tensile strength, and the ability of different materials. It also
disussed the reso...
Sprint have best data plan bar none?
I'm thinking of switching cell carriers and upgrading
to smart phone that has email and Internet access
It "appears" to me that for $15/month I can get
unlimited data through spint whereas other carriers
typically want $40/month for that.
Is this correct? Am I reading their info correct?
Does Sprint have best data plan bar none so far?Not having ever tried Sprint and not knowing what your criteria for
"best" is, I can't say, but you are going about this the wrong way.

small office phone system ?
We have a small office with 3 CO lines and 5 extensions. I really
want a KSU-less system but have tried the ATT964 and Panasonic
wireless KX-TG4000, both with undesirable results. I have pretty much
convince myself that I need a KSU system and have narrowed down the
search to the Panasonic 624 and 308. I have a few questions and hope
someone can help me out.
1. Besides digital vs analog, what is the advantage of the 308 over
624. I am leaning towards the 624 for the bundled C...
What is the best account type to use for a home equity
line of credit in Quicken 98?
What is the best account type to use for a home equity
line of credit in Quicken 98? I could do this as a credit
card account, but it would be nice for Quicken to calculate
the payments & amortization. Can it deal with a loan where
the principal amount changes each month? Is this something
to add to the wish list for Q99?I have been using a Credit Card account type for my equity line for the past
6 years and it has worked fine. Since the balance changes as you make
General Engineering case # question
Is there any way of finding out when (and if!) a specific engineering
case is expected to be fixed, or do I just need to keep watching the
EBF's as they come out?
The one I'm interested in (382022) is not in EBF 3044 (nor did I expect
it to be, since it's fairly recent), but was wondering if there's any
way of finding out if it will be fixed in a later EBF, or if I need to
come up with a workaround for a year or so.Once an engineering case has been fixed, you should be able to sear...

dont like how its not always on like our land lines are , but then again

You can get phone numbers in about any are code you want, including toll
free numbers. You can have the same inexpensive phone service anywhere you
have a broadb...
VOIP: Internet Telephone Question ?
I just recently signed up for telephone service through my cable
company (It is supposed to be installed Tuesday, December 5.) Other
than my cable company, I had considered services such as Vonage and Sunrocket.
After I signed up with my cable company, I was thinking and had the
following question: Is it possible to subscribe to two different VOIP
telephone services at the same time and be able to use either of them
whenever you want? In other words, after I port my current telep...
Arch Engineering v Civil?
I am wondering what the advantage is to getting a degree in architectural
engineering as opposed to a degree in civil engineering with additional
course work in architecture. I have an opportunity to attend a school with
an architectural engineering program, but it would involve a major move.
If I stay where I am I can get a civil engineering degree. I want to be an
architectural engineer. Any help would be appreciated.To learn what architectural engineers do, visit:
HELP !!! Seller 'carries back' second Mortgage. How ???
I'm not so clear on this and would like to hear some imput from anyone
who might have been involved or even understands such a transaction.
If you want the seller to 'take back' a second mortgage, as money down for example, how will this work?
First off all, I suppose you assume that 2nd M an make payments, BUT,
do you have to qualify for the bank to allow transfer of this 2nd M.
What about the bank financing your first M, what happens when they get wind

Could you tell me some ideas about Free Debt Management Program?
This expense with my car was going to be my last straw financially. I
decided to try to find some way to handle it other than suicide. So I
called one of the numbers we give hotline callers who are having debt
problems--a place called Genus Credit Management. I feel much better.
The person on the phone was really helpful and reassuring. And it's free,
so it's not another expense for me. They're going to talk to my creditors
and try to work it out so I only have one monthly payment on...

Let the auto loan people come and take the van since it is not
benefiting me - will this result in negative on my report?
I had an automobile loan prior to filing bankruptcy. At the hearing the
Judge denied the creditors motion to reaffirm the auto loan since I had
possession of the vehicle and I was not delinquent in payment.
In my credit report now after the BK, the loan sporadically shows up here
and there. It either shows as included in bankruptcy or doesn't show at all.
I have been on a 1 year letter writing campaign to all the bureaus but it
requires almost an act of congress to deal with th...
Vicious "Same Day Payday Loans" for US Troops?
Vicious "Same Day Payday Loans" for US Troops?- But spokesmen for the industry argue that stores with names such
as Planet Cash offer a service "bridging the gaps between paydays"
that banks, credit unions and the military can't or won't provide
- same-day loans to troops who are credit risks.
At a typical payday store, a borrower would show a pay stub and
proof of a bank account to borrow $100 for a charge of $120. The
borrower writes a check for $120 and postdates the check to hi...
