Most like as in Nothing Alike  :-[ >:( :'(

Norton Family seems to have filtering and ability to block apps. Anyone here use it successfully?

I thought there hasn't been any updates since 2013, when Symantec bought K9 and announced it was no longer supported. I'm not sure if classifications have been updated in years already.

Can K9 still be freshly installed with an already obtained license?

You need to download the install file from a 3rd party as Symantec is not giving it out anymore, try Download Cnet

Any idea how to get a license if Symantec is not giving any out? I assume there is a way.

Alexsei - I heard there is a great book on Alternative Medicine from Rav Yisroel Belsky Zatzal. That would be your best source for Halacha in this area, if it discusses Mindfulness...

This is in preparation to purim kattan coming up, but not as long as the miggilah.

I needed a new window motor which cranks the window up and down.
 So I went online to order the part and saw a 20% coupon for an order $100+. Placed the order and saw the delivery date for a week later.
I wanted to fix the broken window didn't have the patience to wait a week for the motor to arrive, so I called up autozone and ask when they can have that part delivered if I order today for an in store pickup? They said tom evening, so I placed the order for $98.99 plus tax.
    So this parts original cost is 98.99 but after the 20% coupon I saved $20.

 I picked up the part from the store and then when the one I ordered online arrived 4-5 days later  I would return to the store,as why should I pay 20% more.

 Can I halachacly keep the motor for free? Or do I need to pay the $80 for the motor?

I am not a Rav or Posek, but I think in this case you should go back and pay the price of the in-store part.

Hi - anyone have experience or recommendations for Yad VaShem?

There is a group going today for frum men and boys with a Chareidi guide recommended by Rav Hanoch Teller (Rav Yehuda Geberer) for 2 hours. Is it a good deal for 35 shekel each? What to make sure to see there? What to avoid there? Is it interesting to visit? Is it too traumatic for a 15 year old?

Hi All!

Looking for a ride for some very nice people, from PHL to Lakewood on early Friday morning of Chanuka (I think it is Dec 15). Any leads?



What is a good hotel in the are of SF/San Jose or nearby - to make a conference? Large meeting room/ballroom with more breakout spaces? Looking for a nice place but reasonably priced.


PS. if you want to make sure you get a ticket for the huge DDS@SF, this is not directly connected ;)

Maybe you can post the name and model of the heater, and/or a picture, so ppl can help even if they can't access youtube.

Yesh has a CC with some good benefits, mainly for when shopping there. You get like 20 items (if you have both spouses registered, each pick 10 and it works on both cards) 10% off or something, and some of the sales are oly for CC cardholders.

If you shop there a lot, can be good.

how good is the filtering on safe kidoo ?

I use it to block the browsers totally on my Windows Phone, so I don't know how they are in filtering. They can block surfing, App Store etc. I know that it is the only thing I found for the WP that has any basic Parental Controls.

Hi All - anyone here has experience with SafeKiddo on Mobile? I have it on Windows Phone - great, can block browsers, Apps etc. Seems well baked in, have not found any other program for Windows Phone..

I want to know feedback on it for other cell phones.

Also - anyone have guidance on a good filter for BlackBerry?

Customer service transcript
You: How can I deposit a check from my PC?
Helen: That is not an available feature. You would need to do it via cell phone to make a mobile deposit.
You: Until very recently I was doing it for my 360 account.
Helen: Right, that was previously an option. It has been removed while we update the website and may be back on a later
date but it is not currently an available feature.
You: Is there any time-frame being offered?
Helen: Not currently.
Helen: Definitely keep an eye out though.

Somehow I'm still skeptical.

I received an email from them yesterday, and confirmed on the phone with rep (who was not aware of this) that they stopped web browser uploads, only can use phone app. :(

Maybe this was mentioned here - Leumi started taking 3.5% on the exchange - a message shows up on screen on the ATM. A teller told me that they stopped being "freiers" supporting USA banks by letting you take out USD for no fee, so you now can only take out SHek and pay...

I withdrew from there yesterday and got 3.41 rate, then took from Mizrahi Tefahot ATM and got around 3.51
