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 :)

I've been able to deduct (or whatever the proper tax return term is) my student loan interest, even though my MAGI is over $75k

comment Should I use IRA money to pay down my student loans?
@JamesRyan - not true at all, the URL starts with "money.stackexchange.com". If what you're saying is true, there should be no page or site on the internet that has "IRA" in its title UNLESS it is talking about some branch or faction of the Irish Republican Army. That's not rational :) (or any of the other myriad uses for the acronym)

@farnsy you're assuming she is "desperately poor" - there's nothing in the question to indicate that

comment Should I use IRA money to pay down my student loans?
As @JoeTaxpayer says, I can deduct (or is it a credit?) some-to-all of the student loan interest I pay on both my and my wife's loans every year, and I'm not in the income bracket you mention.

@JamesRyan - anyone who would confuse the Irish Republican Army with an Individual Retirement Account on a personal finance website, probably doesn't pay too much attention to anything else, either :)

comment Why the different fees for credit and debit card payments?
@JoeTaxpayer - sorta ... but it's the same card, same account: form the perspective of the user, it's identical

comment Why the different fees for credit and debit card payments?
how does that play into why merchants are charged different amount for processing the same card as a debit vs credit?

comment Is it possible to cash a check made to someone else's name? How to do so?
if the "someone else" is your spouse, the bank (at least in the US) probably won't care - even if it is quite large
