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: jersey care Isn't there something that if you know you're eligible for Jersey care they can pay for bills during the application process?

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.

Re: American kicks Jewish family off flights because of 'body odor'
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

I cannot seem to find a reasonably priced modem with a phone jack that works for optimum. Want to stop paying the $10 monthly fee. Any ideas?
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).

Re: Random Posts Did anybody see this post on Reddit?

First of all I don't think that is the halacha to begin with (correct me if I'm wrong) if she's already 17. Unless they're saying only if she wants to keep the relationship. Which doesn't sound like it.

Although from her post history it sounds like the family isn't orthodox. But that makes the question harder. Why do the parents want that?

Second of all why is everyone so scared of marriage?

Re: Interesting Articles... Can confirm. I work for an Amazon seller that mainly sells cell phones.

Very often we get smashed phones that are returned, different model phone switched out for a new phone, empty boxes, paperweights, phones that are gutted for parts, non working display phones.

I'd average 1/20 of the returns have some problem.

Re: A Simple Tzedaka Fund Idea
The website says that they check to ensure that the simcha is done in a way that is financially responsible
To me financially responsible is for a wedding to look like a Sheva brachos/vort.

Yes it's extreme for today, but I think it's best that way.

Re: Any sites to sharpen a blurry picture,by increasing contrast of adjacent pixels?
   Are there any good sites that you guys used in the past to sharpen a blurry picture, or in my case i have a shipping label which is quite blurry, couldn't get it to scan in the PO so i tried a bar-code generator site and was going to use 3D Paint to edit it to the shipping label but when blowing the pic so big the pixels get killed again, so wondering what free site or even a paid site there's out there that you guys might have used in the past? Thanks
I'm not entirely sure but I think converting the image to a vector file should do the trick.
I don't know any sites that do it off hand but I'm sure you can Google it.
