Re: Car Insurance Master Thread
I am looking into getting insurance for the first time and had some questions, any help would be greatly appreciate.
1. I had an accident 2 years ago (out of state and on someone else's insurance) and there was a police report and insurance paid for it, but it not on my driving record that I pulled from the dmv. Would this accident still affect my rate?
2. How does lapsed insurance work? If i get now for a year and then don't have for a while, will my rates be very high the next time around like a new driver?
3.can I register and insure a car to a different address and state than my license (if I have proof of residency in the other address)?
  TIA
A lapse of over 30 days is considered a new driver

Re: Car Insurance Master Thread
Thanks, how can I avoid that? Keep insurance without a car (if that's even possible)? Be added to someone's else's policy?
Being added to someone's policy should solve the problem

Re: National Emerald Club
Right, but I know (from experience) that with hertz its easier to get away with sketchy codes by an airport because those checkout people usually just confirm your ID. So I was wondering if it's the same at national/enterprise?
My friend just got blacklisted for doing this.

How do you know that you have the exact shade?

Re: Excel Help and Problems
That's why I'm using find format from cell, shouldn't it match it exactly?
You copied it from another file, so how do you know that the color you are selecting on the find/replace is the same color as on the sheet. Maybe the sheet is a custom color etc.

Re: Used Cars Master Thread
not sure if this is the right place, but I'm looking to buy a used car, and  looking through craigslist there are a lot of cars that seem very legit but are significantly  underpriced, is there a way of knowing when its too good to be true and when its just a guy looking to sell his car?
obviously, I'd only pay in person once I've seen the car (probably with a friend who knows about cars), but was what other things should I look out for, assuming it all checks out?
What's an example URL of a listing that looks underpriced.

Before they implemented the 5$ post thingy, the listings that looked like they were screenshots of pictures all looked fishy to me.

Looks too generic, and I'm generally suspicious of any seller that doesn't post a picture of the odometer with the stated mileage....

Yes those were the type of listings i saw. Although it seems they upped the picture quality and no duplicates. Always pictures on grass or in front of fancy houses. I don't know what their scam is but there's 0% chance that's a real listing based on that price.

Re: Used Cars Master Thread
so not even worth it to follow up at all IYO?
It can't hurt as long as no money whatsoever is spent. Although I guess don't even call up with your main number/email. They might only be going after just basic contact info of people.

Re: Used Cars Master Thread
right, so assuming I see the car and the mileage, etc is real, is there anything else to worry about? stolen? very hidden flaws?
You'll likely never see the car. They're probably scammers looking for people who will send them money to order the car. Not too long ago I tried replying to one of these ads to see what would happen (fake name, address, and throwaway email). Here are the emails that we traded, and screenshots of the very-ligit looking email that I got from 'Ebay'.


Yehudaa: Hi. I'm very interested in your Rav4. Please send me more info, and please let me know when I can come test drive the car. Thanks!

Patricia Davis: Hi there, thank you for your interest in buying my SUV. My 2013 Toyota Rav4 LE 4WD has 82,360 Kms, with a 2.5L I4 cylinders engine, automatic transmission. It is in perfect condition, no need for additional repairs,no scratches, dings or rust. The vehicle looks great. It runs like new and all services are up to date. Also, I need to mention that it was never involved in any accidents. The value is CAD $3,500. It belonged to my husband but he passed away(had a heart attack) so I decided to sell it because to be honest, it's only gathering dust in my garage.I just moved with my daughter in Saskatoon SK so I took the vehicle with me and gave it to eBay to handle the deal.The vehicle is at the shipping company, sealed and ready for delivery. It's quite hard for me to sell it in person because I'm 61 yo and age gets you eventually. But with eBay you'll get 5 days for inspection and if you're interested in purchasing it, send me your full name, shipping address and phone # so I can have them to send you an invoice, meaning more details about how they work. Also you are not obligated  to buy it, no pressure...I've attached more pictures!


Yehudaa: Hi Patricia. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband! Let's go ahead with this deal. My full legal name is (fake name). Shipping address is (fake address). Please let me know to pay for it and when it will be delivered. Thanks!

Patricia Davis: Hello, I apologize for my delayed response but I am very busy with my work,I have received your complete delivery details and right now I will forward the information to eBay. They will send you the invoice shortly and you will receive it by email with all the instructions and details. Please get back after you receive the invoice from them so we can complete our deal. Thank you!

Patricia Davis: I just got an email from eBay saying that they have sent you the invoice with all details you need in order to complete this deal. Please check your messages and let me know if you got it. Also,on the payment notification you will find their phone number where you can call and get more info from their operators. I will wait for your reply.

Re: Craigslist
cross-posting because this seems like a good place
I'm looking to buy a used car, and looking through craigslist there are a lot of cars that seem very legit but are significantly underpriced, is there a way of knowing when it's too good to be true and when it's just a guy looking to sell his car?
obviously, I'd only pay in person once I've seen the car (probably with a friend who knows about cars), but was what other things should I look out for, assuming it all checks out?

Always take it by a mechanic of YOUR choice, if seller doesn't agree run away.
Always check CARFAX by your own, or that you see that's it's running it from the real carfax website, don't trust a paper Carfax preprint from the seller.
And of course the first rule as always is : "if it's to good to be true" run away.

Good luck.

Re: Excel Help and Problems
what kind of formula would I need if I want conditions of multiple columns to add to a total? for example, if column A is more than 10 add 1 to the total, and if its less than 5 subtract 1 from the total.
TIA
This is a simple nested IF. Like (if the total is on column F...)
Code: [Select]
=IF(A1>10,F1+1,IF(A1<5,F1-1,"NOT DEFINED"))

Re: Excel Help and Problems
thanks, but I tried using that but it's not working, I think because once a nestled IF reaches a "true" it stops reading so it never reaches the next column. (unless I'm mistaken)
Do you need something like?
Code: [Select]
=SUM(IF(A1>10,A1+1,IF(A1<5,A1-1,"NOT DEFINED")),(IF(B1>10,B1+1,IF(B1<5,B1-1,"NOT DEFINED"))),(IF(C1>10,C1+1,IF(C1<5,C1-1,"NOT DEFINED"))))

Re: Excel Help and Problems
It does, but I removed the reference to the cell by the "value if true" because I want the total in the new column (where I putting the code), does that make sense?
it also comes back as #value if there is a number in between 5-10, anyway for it to just not change the total?
If it's between 5 and 10, you'll want to refer to the column from where it should copy the number in that case.

=SUM(IF(A1>10,1,IF(A1<5,-1,0)),(IF(B1>10,1,IF(B1<5,-1,0))),(IF(C1>10,1,IF(C1<5,-1,0))))

Re: t-mobile Wifi calling on non t-mobile phones To start, what device are you trying to get it to work on?

  Wi-Fi calling is not necessarily supported on every phone carrier.

  Also in general , if you want to make a call over Wi-Fi you can use Google voice to accomplish the same thing.

Re: RV/Motorhome/Camper Master Thread
is it wishful thinking to try to get a good rate for a one-way rental during august?
Not at all. Though it does depend what region you're thinking of, and from where to where.

I don't know though if/how the pandemic affects this.
Does anyone have experience?
I did it and am hoping to do it again.

Re: RV/Motorhome/Camper Master Thread

How far is the one-way? Do you plan to do a route that many people do in both directions?  You may get a good rate on the rental itself, but one-way fees could be quite expensive.  Also, are you prepared to disinfect all surfaces?

LIFE INSURANCE Please make sure you have enough coverage! Term life insurance is so cheap these days.

Think about your responsibility towards your family.

I get sick every time I see another family become rachmonos cases when a parent dies. They raise a few hundred thousand dollars. Not nearly enough to sustain and marry the kids off. A life insurance policy would give $1mm-$2mm easily.


This is a PSA. I don't work for any life insurance companies.

I would like to start running ads in local newspapers really screaming this from the rooftops.  I'm looking for anyone to sponsor (can be an ad as well for your company etc).  PM if interested. Tizku lemitzvos
