Credit Cards / Re: Amex Extended Warranty

He's wrong about Apple Care. That's not part of the original manufacturer warranty.

I don't think there are any electronics that carry more than a 1 year warranty, but CMIIW.
ZTE shipped a unheard of 2 year warranty on their top tier Axon phones, with free advance exchange Shipping, even covering Accidental damage for a $80 deductable.

Shame that they couldn't keep themselves from lying to the US Govt... Twice.
We'll see if they ever get back in to the high end smartphone game in the US, and if anyone will trust them.

Kate Spade
She was on this NPR podcast that was posted not too long ago:

How I Built This | Kate Spade: Kate & Andy Spade

Any Phomen or Allenbi reviews?
Phomen: expensive, and the flavors are pretty authentic, so you won't have anything to compare it to outside of tradition soup.

If you go with an open mind, it'll be good.

The staff and chef are pretty good at educating you though.

Goods For Sale/Trade / Re: United Club Passes For Sale

To answer my own question, a clear scan of the pass still works fine, they just put your phone over the scanner instead of the card.
Do you need the original pass, or would they let you in with a copy?

What's the best reason why a normal person would want a dashcam?

I mean, I think it would be a fun toy, but what's the real reason if you're not a cab driver. Please explain it to me.
If there is an accident where the fault is not 100% obvious, this will protect you, and possibly help your insurance payment stay down if the video shows you being not at fault.

A extreme example would be the horrible accident recently where the Chosson and Kalla passed away: Had there been a dashcam, I do not think all the other drivers would have been so quick to blame the only people involved who were not alive to defend themselves.

Some also have a parking mode that records of anyone hits your car while parked, but reliable ones are usually more expensive.

whats the latest recommendation for a dash cam?
You most probably still cant go wrong with the Viofo A119.

AMAZING quality, no battery to go bad in summer etc, excellent unobtrusive mounting position, reasonable price.

Also goes on sale pretty often.

If you live somewhere with mild weather, you may want a battery model, so you can record with the camera detached.

Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Request: Fax to email service?
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:13:41 AM »
Faxzero is excellent for outgoing faxes of up to 3 pages. For slightly longer ones use

However, none of those are good for the subject of this thread which is about INCOMING fax to email.

For that, the best FREE solutions are either callcentric (free NYS phone number) or Google Voice with Simonics (small one time setup fee for Simonics).
Been using Callcentric for free (based on your recommendation) for over a year, it works great with no hiccups for me.
Faxes come as PDF email attachments.

Ian's knot is one of the most practical things I've learned about through DDF. It affects me every single day! Takes a bit of time to get used to, but once you do, you won't understand how anyone doesn't use it, or how you lived so long tying your shoes any other way.

I'm honored...

Any eat in options?
There is sleep-in, so I'm sure they can accommodate an eat-in request.

You can reach out to them and ask.
