Re: Dismiss NYC parking tickets
Or when I really have a heart for the person that got a ticket and it hurts me to see they got a ticket I spend the quarter and dump the ticket under his windshield wiper.
( too bad I lost count of how many times I did this.)
I used to do that, but only when I had to make a certain amount of transactions on my card for the month.

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison. Just wanted to point out. You realized how much longer that is than the others. In my opinion tefillah/hodaa should be shorter than spelling everything out. There has to be a part that's still left inside your heart.

Re: If I Could, I Would... (Master Thread) If I could, I would redesign all urban cities to have pumps built into the middle of the street (underground). Therefore have more parking spots.

Re: Site Suggestions
Not sure where to put this...

I wrote a little bit of CSS to align the orange NEW buttons to the right.


The advantages are:
1) It looks nicer
2) I use an extension called LinkClump which allows me to drag a rectangle over a bunch of links and open them all in new tabs, so like this I can open all the new threads at once.

Here's the CSS:
Code: [Select]
a[id^="newicon"]  {

I pasted it into Stylish and set it to only run on websites that start with
Code: [Select]
Pretty cool.

Re: eBay: Master Thread
Hi everyone, I ordered a new (other) iPod when Ebay had 15% but sure enough when I received it  I saw it’s used. I Contact the seller he said it was a mistake. But its not like he had any other listed so I think he knowingly tried to  scam me. He offered full refund but being that I bought it when they had 15% I’ll still lose out. My question is if and how I can/should take revenge?

I don't see any way you can get him back. And even if there was a way to get him back I still don't think you should. It's not the best of character traits to hone.

How did you realize it was used? Why didn't the seller realize that you'd realize?

Let's Play Chess!

How to play:
Decide who you're playing against. The younger player goes first and is going to be white which are the capital letters.

Start off by copying the blank board code by quoting it (make sure to include the teletype tag). Then move your piece to wherever you want.
Remember to replace the letter with an underscore _ .
The opponent will then quote your move and follow up with their own move.   

(Subject to change)
There's no time limit in between moves.
Viewers can challenge either side and branch off the game if they would like.
Any he'oros can be commented for consideration.

Does the board look ok on your browser? On tapa?

Not the fanciest solution, but it may be worth a try to plug in a different keyboard and see if that helps. Maybe one of the keys on your keyboard is broken (or only works sometimes) and that's what is preventing you from typing the right password.

Source: experience
Or you can use the on screen keyboard through the ease of access icon.

I also find that most years I got a second wind of energy at neila time. As a matter of fact, usually I'm not even so hungry at the end of the fast. It's in middle when I'm hungry and weak.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Come on. These people deserve to be exposed. No point arguing semantics.
The scammers yes. People sending insulting messages based on an opinion (whether right or wrong) I'm not so sure about.
The only reason to include a name is to insult the person back. If that's the case the reply isn't any better than the original message.
Here it is slightly different as cmey and skyguy said because it's a DDF name. But I still think aygart is right that people might know him.
And besides even if people don't know him like I said before it hurts feelings and won't be any different than the sender.
Plus if someone doesn't answer back maybe it would be considered הנעלבים ואין עולבים

As with a lot of my posts, I don't think them through so much so if anybody has any criticism or corrections, it's always welcome :)

Re: Random questions. Can somebody explain to me why music has 7 notes in an octave/scale?
Let's say on a keyboard, all the way to the left is the lowest sound. Every button to the right is a higher pitch or whatever you want to call it. So why should there only be 7 (or 12 if you count the black buttons) between each set?

I read/heard something along the lines that those are the only different sounds. Meaning button number one and number 8 are both the same sound just different in something. What is that something?

I tried looking it up but I'm getting confused with all the names.

Re: Warm glove for daily wear recommendations?
I need something that can withstand every day wear and tear and be warm at the same time.

So far for warm I've found the bulky ski type gloves which are great for skiing but not very practical for daily wear and something that's practical like this is not very warm (according to the reviews).

I've worn leather gloves for many years and they are great but the daily abuse I give it takes a toll and then I feel it's a waste to spend so much on leather when I just destroy it. I'll buy leather again just for shabbos but I need something for daily wear.

What do others here wear?

I wear this (isotoner leather gloves)

This is after wearing it for a couple years already and it's holding up pretty well.

I haven't used a leather conditioner on this but I'm sure if you do it will significantly extend the life of gloves.

Re: google voice help If I'm not mistaken one time I was in London and trying to use hangouts with a UK sim card. I think I had the same issue as @shmielyosef I don't remember the exact details but basically whenever I tried calling a number it automatically added a +44 country code unless I dialed a number in my contacts.

I most probably didn't set it up correctly or something. IDK it was a while ago.

Wow. Do you see the difference in the way the story is presented?

Here is their headline when it comes to a Jewish family..

“Michigan family booted over ‘body odor’, but they say anti-semitism to blame”
“Nigerian woman kicked off after white man complained she was ‘pungent’: lawsuit”
I don't get the difference

If you have around 50mbps than you can get cisco dpq3212 for $34 on eBay item # 253713296571

Or Arris tm822a / tm822g (I have one if you want to buy for $20)

If you have higher then you can get the Arris tm1602

Re: Ad Campaign for spreading awareness anti credit card swiping businesses!
Print ads are important because many people who are attracted to these offers do not use social media/Whatsapp.
But ads are expensive, I highly doubt we'll get more than 1 or 2 if any.  That's why I think everyone should hang up this sign on their shul bulletin board.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Ok @whYME  and @Yehuda57  please tell me a real word to use for the people who allowed their cards to be swiped and I'll use it!  Lender, investor, victim all imply taking a side.  I used the term investor because I was referencing a Ponzi scheme comparison and that's what people with money in Ponzi schemes are called...geesh.

 I refuse to use swipee because now I can't get Dora the Explorer out of my head and my kids already traumatized me for several years going around the house saying "Swiper no Swipee!"  ;D

Re: Adding Financial Literacy Courses In Yeshivas
No one addressed that question in this thread. I posted similarly above, along with @mmgfarb. Just busy with semantics.
How can they sit for secular studies but not for religious studies? Ela Mai, they're not interested. So like @ExGingi  said that is something to be worked on. Although I think he was saying it's due to the teachers. I agree but I think it has much more to do with the students priorities.

Anyways regardless I'll say again what I believe to be true. The goal of a frum person is to become the best possible eved hashem. This purpose in life is not only when people are in the mood of it. It's 24/7/354/120. How exactly is learning secular studies furthering that goal in the most efficient way?

Free 72hr access codes to NY Times (unlimited amount of times) Usually they have a 10 article limit. Some say incognito mode is a workaround. I never got it to work with incognito.

Offers free 72 hour passes to their site. You need a NY times account then just click on the redeem button and it will automatically activate it (if you're logged in).
