    Crazy / Smart / Stupid things people do at onsite / overseas to save money

    Many Indians living abroad get a bad rep for being "smelly" not because of bad hygiene, but because of the food. Indian food is oil and spice-centric, and while it smells great while it's fresh, the oil vapors and curry smells have a really bad tendency to cling to your clothes. This is the...

    Crazy / Smart / Stupid things people do at onsite / overseas to save money

    I'm one of those people who does these "crazy / smart / stupid" things to save a few cents. Here's a list off the top of my head: 1. Share a 1 bedroom with 11 other people. This is big one, because I only have to pay a 100 bucks a month for a roof over my head. The living situation and hygiene...

    Car & Bike DIY Vehicle Maintenance - Who else is into it?

    Apart from the regular oil and filter changes, I've done brake pad and rotor replacement along with a flush on one of my cars and timing belt replacement on the other. You can save a lot of $$ doing the regular maintenance on your car yourself and it also makes for a fun Saturday afternoon. The...

    Diablo 3 - Reaper of Souls revealed

    You found upgrades despite the bug with current legendaries and 2-handers? That's impressive. All I could do was swap out my Skorn for I-forget-what on my Wizard.

    Diablo 3 - Reaper of Souls revealed

    The connection problems are still prevalent. I don't know which region you're playing on, but I play on Americas where I usually get 30ms with frequent bursts to 600ms for no apparent reason. I'm certain it's not a problem with my ISP since I've tried multiple connections. The problem is...

    Programming language and processor architecture dependency ?

    Not sure what you mean when you say compiling and linking is OS dependent. Compiling and linking are done by the compiler. Obviously, the linking stage depends on the OS when there are shared libraries (not necessarily true for some languages). All modern compilers are architecture-aware. So...

    Suggest me a Hybrid/Urban/Commuting Bicycle like BSA Photon

    What kind of wear and tear do you have on your bike? Bikes are easily serviceable since they have just 3 or 4 moving parts. If you're happy with the bike and it doesn't have a bent frame, you can stick with it for 30+ years.

    Buying a cycle/bike in US

    You don't work up enough sweat biking 3-4 miles that you start to stink. Even if you did there are many ways around it. People bike to work all the time. I ride ~6miles to work in the heat of Arizona. BO is a non-issue in this discussion. Anyway, OP has already bought a bike and if he doesn't...

    Buying a cycle/bike in US

    OT Push bike definitely sounds like a British term. In the US, push bike is usually used to describe little kids bikes which come without pedals i.e. you 'push' them around.

    Buying a cycle/bike in US

    Bikes are not just for students, but I agree that they're mostly used by students living in and around the campus and also enthusiasts. American cities aren't as bike friendly as European cities because of urban sprawl and bike lanes which were built as an afterthought. Getting groceries can...

    Buying a cycle/bike in US

    How far will you be riding daily? I suggest you wait till you get there and check out the conditions and also ask the locals if people ride in the winter. In some places it gets really bad and nobody bikes in the winter. The edge of the road where you will usually be riding is also the worst...

    Start a competing astrologer business. Seems like easy money, giving out bs advice based on arbitrary locations of space rocks. Make sure you wear white clothes, and white lies only.
