Looking for the best deal on the best place to make an event in NYC. Any ideas?

Deals/Deal Requests / 50% off for DDF readers - book on Marriage!

If you are married  8) or getting married in the near future :o , you want this book and now you can have it with 50% off with a special DDF code! (see below)

The book is called "Jewish Marriage Secrets Revealed" and it will transform your marriage!

It comes with a fully money back guarantee so if you are not fully satisfied, you can send it back after you read it and get your money back.

See the link - it actually includes 4 books and the total should be $18.50!!

Here is some info from the author (who I met last week).
Is marriage really supposed to work?

Absolutely. Not only is it supposed to work, you can really make it work. The main reason that people find marriage so difficult and why so many people struggle with marital harmony is because they were never taught the reason or purpose of marriage and they were never taught the rules of marriage. SEE

There is a very deep and profound reason for marriage, and marriage like any other system has rules to make it work. So if you don't know the purpose or the rules your marriage most probably wont work. If you do know the purpose and the rules than marriage is the greatest and most rewarding opportunity ever. You can absolutely love being married. We were created to be married. SEE

You wouldn't take a prescription medicine without knowing the purpose? Know the purpose of marriage

You would not drive a car without knowing the rules of the road. Learn the rules of having a successful marriage

"Any married person who reads this booklet will benefit. In fact, it should be read before marriage to avoid the problems it deals with. Couples who follows all its advice will have a happy marriage."
Rabbi Dr Akiva Tatz

This is a concise common sense approach to marriage and its challenges and joys. It is based on Torah values and is therefore universal in its application and insights. It can be of great value to singles, newlyweds  and old married couples alike. The author is to be commended for this important work.
Rabbi Berel Wein

Tech Talk / Setting up small office - ideas for phone system?
« on: July 19, 2015, 09:58:24 AM »
Hi everyone! How have you all been??  :D :D

 I want to set up a small office with voip phones. I want to port a few lines, have 10 extensions (I have IP Phones) with outgoing to the US and Canada (not necessarily unlimited). What is a cheap way to do that but with good quality so I won't have to spend time to fix it? I was thinking of cloud hosted PBX - Asterisk or OBI, with Callcentric lines. Makes sense? Anyone have more input? I want that the phones can call and transfer to each other, good quality voice, voice mail.

« on: January 01, 2014, 06:22:25 PM »
Hi everyone!

Anyone here have any requests for specific stuff on a DDF/DD app? I have a friend who can make one, what does it need to have? I posted here but I think it should be its own thread.

I am thinking about twitter alerts with a filter/ratings of how hot/sizzling, forum reading and posting, etc. What features should it have?

Just Shmooze / Seeking Vodka Badatz Edah in Yerushalayim
« on: October 04, 2013, 06:35:01 AM »
Hi, if anyone is on Yerushalayim and stopping off in Piup Wine Store on Shmuel Hanavi off Bar Ilan, can you please check out how much they charge for Vodka with the Hechsher of the Badatz Edah Hacherdis? I am not in J-lem, in the local Barkol they charge 90 shekel for a liter bottle (on the bottle is an old price tag for 35 shekel covered with the new price) and Yesh does not have any. Any other place where they have cheap vodka with Badatz hechsher?

I am making Esrog Shnapps and I need a few bottles. I want Badatz so I can share it with everyone (Purim mishloach manos). To pay 280 for 3 bottles is ridiculous!  :o
