My car isn't starting. Can anyone give me a ride to/from work tomorrow and Sunday? I live by Sloan's Lake and work off of I-25 and Lincoln. I leave home at 6am to get to work by 7. I leave work at 7pm.

Please and thanks. I'll buy you gas and coffee and throw you a couple bucks. Thanks.

Even if I had a significant other, they would know my love each and every day - not just one day in the middle of the winter to spring transition. Stop buying into corporate brainwashing. If you are "celebrating" this "holiday", at least do it at a local mom and pop shop. If you're buying your Valentine chocolates from Wal-Mart and having dinner at Chili's, you're part of the problem.
 
Do the civilized world a favor and say no to valentine's day... treat your loved ones with respect and awe every day..

So, this is interesting... Last I checked, the average of this should be 2.5 not 3.8. Maybe someone smarter than me can explain why this has almost 4 stars when 50% of the reviews were terrible...?

(5*3)+(1*3)= 18.
18/6 = 3
The result should be 3, but in doing some fudging, if there's another 5 star review that is added to the points, but not counted in the division, it comes out to 3.83.

+Intuit +TurboTax , I'm not visiting TurboTax for a friendly chat or for counseling. I'm here to file my friggin' taxes. WTF is this? Unable to skip or bypass... This is dumb. Just dumb. Stop it. Go back to working how you used to. #wtf

I am switching to Tax Act this year. Cheaper, more transparent, and just as convenient. The only reason to log in to Turbo Tax is to grab last years return. :)

A little help?

Only after signing up for my Computer Science 2 course this semester did I take a moment to think about when the last time I took an adequate Computer Science 1 course was. Then I remembered, it was 4 years ago. The professor said we could easily fall behind if we didn't have the knowledge we should have gotten from CS1. Needless to say, I'm afraid I'm already behind. 

If you've got Java knowledge, could you help me out? I'll be available via Hangouts from 7am-7pm Mountain Time today and tomorrow, all dedicated to getting my homework done.

Zzzzzzz.....

If I wanted to hack portals, +Ingress​, I would open the app and do it myself. Don't send new notifications that aren't even in the notifications settings of the app!

How many more reasons must you give me to uninstall? I know you're lonely and I haven't used you in months, but we're still not talking because "Portal Under Attack" notifications are still unmanageable... don't give me another reason to ignore you! Ugh...

You know... it took me a second. But you can't blame me, I was never really into Pokemon.

Really don't know what's wrong with my Galaxy S3's battery life. My screen has been on lowest brightness setting all morning. Plus it's been "dying" around 30-40%. Turning it back on tells me 0%, but plugging it in and turning it on tells me 30-40% again... is it time for an upgrade?

Colorado Motherpl+ssers!

Looking for a tutor. Class is Computer Science 2, but needing immediate help with Computer Science 1 review (took the class 4 years ago). Programming language is #Java . CS2 is focused on algorithms and data structures, mostly. The CS1 things I need review on basic syntax, structure, and really just remembering how to think logically! 

I could do tutoring via Hangouts, but I feel being physically present would be most beneficial. I am a starving college student, so the easier on my budget, the better. Perhaps a trade of service? Not sure what I could offer, but I have a few ideas we could hash out in person.

So, how bout it? Help a prospective code monkey learn the basics? I would be most appreciative!

Story
Tagline
Working on a BA in Theatre and Computer Science. Yes, Theatre and Computer Science.
Introduction
The more involved I get in the technological community, the more I want to be a part. My dream? To work for Google. Any position. Any hours. Any pay rate. I am a Googlephile, through and through. Of course, not all dreams can come true so I'm really just looking into anything that involves code. I've taken Computer Science I at Metro and I've learned the basics of Java and Object Oriented Programming; I literally get upset or irritated when I finish my homework. I usually spend more time than I should formatting things that don't need it just for the sake of perfectionism.
Bragging rights
I once worked 45 hours in 3 days as a willing volunteer for a steampunk convention. I received a "Minion of the Year" award. ^_^
