$50m to shut down a program that costs $2m annually and advances science. Harper is an idiot.

Assembly complete on shoe rack/bench. First time turning around an assembly in a day. Holds weight well and doesn't wobble, so pretty content. Used screws this time for the important joints, since the dresser isn't holding up as well as I hoped.

America's Tire removed the nail that was causing me to slowly lose pressure and fixed the tire. For free. Is this normal?

Finally got around to doing a speed test on my network connections. Comcast: 11Mb down, 4Mb up. Verizon 4G at home (unlimited, grandfathered in): 14 Mb down, 5 Mb up. Since the Comcast connection has been enough bandwidth at home so far, it might be time to finally cut the cord completely.

Looks like I will have to push forward with finding a new credit card after all. Although Bank of America offers competitive rewards, their service is absolute garbage. We all knew that though, which is why we all switched away from them, right?

Since I had my credit card purchased by them, I figured it was convenient enough, but nobody should have to deal with a website that's down half the time just to get a few extra bucks in rewards.

Oh, and as a point of reference, Schwab's website loads instantly.

Woke up to a nice display and breakfast by the roommate's girlfriend. She did it all last night, which was tough because MT and I were sleeping on the couch until 2am when she starting making a lot of noise "cooking because she was hungry" to get us to go to bed.

I just want to re-iterate for anybody still dealing with the big banks and their fees: Schwab has the best chequing account that you can get.
- No monthly or annual fees
- No minimum balance
- Not only do they not charge for using an "out-of-network" ATM, but they REIMBURSE your ATM fees (go ahead, use that expensive convenience store ATM - it doesn't cost you anything)
- They have a mobile app (Android and iPhone) for depositing cheques just by taking a picture (you don't even have to send them the cheque, just hang onto it until it goes through)
- They even give you some money as interest (not much, but it's an example of the fact that Schwab doesn't eat away at your money, they give it to you)

Apply here:

The only downside is the lack of brick-and-mortar branches, but all use cases aside from cash deposits have been solved. I still keep a normal account open for funneling large cash deposits through (which is actually very rare, especially if you insist on cheques or PayPal), but because my uses of that account are so limited, I don't get hit with any fees. (No need to deposit small amounts of cash, just spend it.)
