I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment How long should a mortgage take to appear on my credit report?
so the fact it's already been sold twice (though only servicing once) may make it take longer?

what is a "crossed postal order"? Is it a UK-specific term? Haven't run across it in the States :)

comment Should I pay off a 0% car loan?
the cost of dropping full coverage is rarely ever worth it - unless your driving record is atrocious and/or you are in some other extremely high-risk category, the few extra dollars per month to keep full coverage is more than worth the risk of suddenly being out your transportation: that's what insurance is for - you transfer your risk (for a fee) to someone else. If you can afford to suddenly pay, say, $10,000 to replace your car, and it's worth saving $25-50/mo (in my case it's on the very low end of the spectrum) to do it, go for it. If you can't, don't.

comment Mortgage or not?
your spouse only makes $6k per year? That's $500/mo, or $125/wk, or $3.125/hr (presuming a 40hr job)

comment How can I file this year's tax return if I haven't got the refund from last year's return?
@mhoran_psprep - I can guarantee the 2013 is at the back of the line: the only focus right now is this year's processing
