As a new homeowner I insist people read this if they are even considering buying a home.
 
After 14 months of trying to repair damages to a badly remodeled home, reconstruction is still far from finished. Oog.

In NY, for instance, where I sold my house, the laws about such things are pretty stern, and that has helped keep prices consistent (if inflated in a lot of neighborhoods). But MN might be laxer to allow better turnover in sales, at the risk of something like this happening.

The fact he was pressured into signing a waiver for the house's condition should have been a red flag, but he was a young first-time buyer, and I suspect he didn't really understand just how thorny this sort of thing can get when you're walking in uninformed.

"Don't like it? Don't read it" is tantamount to an excuse to never improve one's work.

Does anyone else here have:

1) the HTC One (2013)
2) with the most recent firmware
3) on T-Mobile
4) with Wi-Fi calling?

As of the last firmware update, calls made over Wi-Fi drop with appalling regularity. I often can't talk for more than ten minutes without the phone going "BLOOP".

I'm trying to figure out if this is a T-Mo issue, a phone issue, a firmware issue, or a me-being-cursed-with-techno-suck issue.

A local bookstore back in NY sold these bookmarks, made from genuine North Korean postage.

Legendary indie record label. P.S.F., from Japan, is in dire financial straits due to their own distributors not paying them. Don't let these guys close up shop.

My take on Man of Steel. The problem with comic book movies is that it's too easy to give people what they think they want, instead of what they need.
