Boycott Get Rich Slowly

I'm boycotting the Get Rich Slowly blog. It used to be a good blog but now its dead. On Dec 18th they posted a post called the cost of gun ownership and in the post said they didn't want to make it political. The timing is disrespectful and it had nothing to do with personal finance.  How do you post on one of the hottest political topics of the week and say you don't want it political? A personal finance blog isn’t the place to debate gun politics and I'm not sure I call what they Read more [...]

Battery Backups

I wasn't able to find out what was added to the Subway tea but I did find that Rosehips have a lot of  vitamin C so I ordered a bag from amazon. I also found that rose hips can be used to tread  diarrhea and  constipation. I didn't think Read more [...]

Cleaning up my music collection

My music collection was a mess from moving it between devices, backups and  adding to it.  I thought it was time to put Linux to work and clean up my collection. This is how I did it.   Remove unneeded files I first had to do some clean up. to me this is just blot. Some will want to keep the album art so this might not be for all. find . -type f -name "*.db" -exec rm -f {} \; find . -type f -name "*.jpg" -exec rm -f {} \; Remove Duplicates Next I wanted to find all the duplicates Read more [...]
