Just Shmooze / How many hours a week do you work?
« on: October 16, 2013, 09:50:05 PM »
If you have a real "full time", i'm wondering what is considered normal and what is excessive.
 I know that 40 hours is standard but do employers expect more from those who really want to succeed?

Credit Cards / Does a business bank loan show on CR?

Same Q for a line of credit. I know they pull cr's and sometimes the owner is personally liable, question is whether and how this will show up.

Credit Cards / Frustrating situation with a dispute on a Giftcard
« on: July 24, 2013, 10:46:02 PM »
Basically, to make a long story shorter:
 I used a $200 Visa GC from giftcard-mall, bought at staples, on AP from wife to me. Because I was doing a whole stack at the time, I thought that the transaction on this card particular failed but the balance on the card still showed zero.
I initiated a dispute, (very dumb move I admit,) saying that AP says the payment failed and the balance should be 200...
 A couple of days later I realized my mistake and I emailed and called Giftcard mall to say that the dispute was made in error and please close the dispute.
I received a letter saying that the dispute has been closed etc.
Problem: Amazon took $200 out of my account, they swear that as far as they know the dispute was not canceled and was closed in favor of the card holder and that they have refunded $200 back to GCM.
I have been calling different departments in Giftcard mall almost daily for over a month. They are acting dumb and saying that they just see that the dispute was closed by me and they claim that they never claimed/received the money from amazon.
I have spoken to supervisors and opened multiple "tickets" etc, I even got the manager at Staples to call them!
I suspect that GCM simply does not have the mechanism to refund me $200 as their computers say the dispute is closed. (They always say "opening a new dispute wouldn't work...") They simply don't know what to do...

Im at my wits end! >:(  Any suggestions would be helpful!

Hate the built in keybord on my acer. Putting a usb KB ontop presses keys, even with papers etc. in between.

Is there any way to disable the KB like you can with the trackpad?

Please add any Torah online resources that you are aware of, including halachic/ "ask the rabbi" (-Normative, traditional-orthodox only please), "vort on the parsha" websites, dafyomi and other shiurim and of course seforim online databases.
(Im specifically looking for an online Shas that has also the "back" ie maharsho, rosh, rif etc. cant seem to find that anywhere.)

This is a short list of links from wikapedia. Hebrewbooks is great but they dont have anything published recently.

Just tell them you're a teacher and show them some proof, they'll give you a card. An email from wifes boss on her phone was enough...

Where do you buy them, where are they cheap? Looking for ones that last at least 3 months. Maybe even a washable/reusable solution?

I made a left from 14th st on to hope into a turning lane. She didnt want to let me in... I went in anyway and she got mad...she swung around and me and cut me off.
She followed me...I pulled in to a shul, she got out and called 911 saying "she wants to file charges and gave them my license plate #..." I left.
What can I expect? Can she get me in trouble? are the cops coming to my house soon?
