Who goes to the supermarket anymore?

Who goes to the supermarket anymore?

This past Sunday I went to a few different supermarkets. Something I haven’t done for over a year, because I signed up for food delivery programs and more recently the Amazon Whole Foods delivery service. I was shocked to see this main difference between Whole Foods and every other supermarket I visited. This one truth will shock you… The shocking thing to me was that although all supermarkets were busy, the majority of the shoppers at Whole Foods were people…

Don’t buy from Mahoosuc Realty in Bethel Maine

Don’t buy from Mahoosuc Realty in Bethel Maine

This was originally from a website dedicated to a negative review of experiences with Mahoosuc Realty and specifically Ron Savage. I have modified it to also include my negative experiences. Ron Savage is a builder that builds mostly log-cabin style homes near Sunday River Ski resort. Overview I had such a bad experience with Mahoosuc Realty and I have heard of so many bad reviews from others that I decided to put up this post to warn potential buyers and…

One born every minute

One born every minute

I was reading in the news about people that purchased non-functional old server hardware because it used to run World of Warcraft. What’s more, they paid over $300/each for one of these! I could see spending some small token amount to own it as a souvenir, but not as much as it would cost to buy one of these things today! HP c7000 hardware I used to work with the blade hardware in question, they are HP c7000 series blades,…

Google caller ID is wrong

Google caller ID is wrong

If you have a Pixel phone by google, chances are your caller ID will show the wrong name when I call. It will show the correct number, but it will show a different name. The worst part is, there is no way to fix this and Google is blaming everyone else! This only happens when I call someone with a Google Pixel phone, no other phones have this problem. Wait, what? The name that shows up when I call people…

The day of the REALTOR is over

The day of the REALTOR is over

Years ago, REALTORS kept paper lists of all the listings of houses for sale in a given area. Then came the MLS, the multiple listing service, a database of all listings nationwide. In order to be listed in this database, you had to engage with a real estate agent for your transaction, thus keeping a sort of “good ol’ boys club” for real estate transactions. You had to pay to play by their rules to buy or sell a home….

Fuck paypal, they stole money from me. Again.

Fuck paypal, they stole money from me. Again.

I stopped using paypal about 10 years ago because of an instance where they randomly decided that my account was suspicious and froze my account balance. I never got that money back, they just kept it. Recently I had a bunch of things to sell on eBay and it turns out that by default they just accept money via paypal. I did not realize this, and of course everyone paid me via that method. I was unable to spend the…

Forced Upgrades Suck – Android 9 bugs

Forced Upgrades Suck – Android 9 bugs

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Note9, which has been fantastic so far due to the long battery life, excellent camera and Android Auto. The other day my phone started warning me that it was going to upgrade, and I couldn’t prevent it only delay it. It was telling me how great the new Android 9 was compared to Android 8 and then one night it upgraded while I was asleep. Since then I’ve had several problems. Major Problem #1:…

LinkedHacker Review: lies and broken promises

LinkedHacker Review: lies and broken promises

About 4 months ago, I was looking for a new lead generation method for my IT company, and I came across LinkedHacker. The idea seemed good, reach out via LinkedIn to people to make a connection, then send them a non-spammy message asking if they would like to hear about your product/service. They promise 10-20 leads per week on their website and I thought that seemed like a great number of leads for the small price. Using their math, there…

Why Zillow mortgage reviews are crap

Why Zillow mortgage reviews are crap

I have been trying to post a negative review on Zillow about my experience with a mortgage broker, and the broker objected to my review to zillow because it was such a bad experience, and now Zillow keeps rejecting it. Which makes me wonder how many other times people have tried to post negative reviews and been denied. Since I am not sure zillow will keep the review, I am posting my own review here of Thomas Bepko and Total…
