The DQYDJ Weekender, 11/7/2015

I'm not that removed from school - I can still remember it, anyway - but when I first heard about 'safe spaces' I thought first of the 2014 Taylor Swift song, Blank Space. I blame Nelson of Financial Uproar for the link in my head. Links We Liked! Microsoft Excel is thirty years old.  Read a bit about the early days! Our friend Jason Hull … [Read more...]

Boo! (USC comes up to the Bay Area today to play Cal - so, for today, let's go LA!) Links We Liked! On Reddit, a bartender accidentally saved over $100,000... and accidentally neglected to pay taxes on it. Sam the Financial Samurai had an excellent piece on hustling even while working a day job - relevant for DQYDJ readers!  Don't become … [Read more...]

We were in Santa Cruz this weekend - sorry about the later than normal Weekender! At least it's still the weekend though.  Here, enjoy what we enjoyed: Links We Liked Jeremy from Go Curry Cracker was near Santa Cruz this weekend, but we unfortunately weren't able to meet up with him - next time!  We enjoyed his most recent post on … [Read more...]

Haven't updated you on the weekend for a while... so how about we take a look at a fantasy football team I'm starting to like a lot?  (This is in a ten team league - but even then, good, right?) Cameron will tell you I had too many RBs - I just traded Eddie Lacy away too (to pick up Allen). And the best part about ESPN fantasy football?  … [Read more...]

Still working on that video card - would you buy one?  Think of it: nostalgia at early 90s quality graphics!  Who needs more than 256 colors? Anyway, here's the awesome links we read this week! Links We Liked! Financial Uproar discusses an under-discussed aspect of retirement planning - your mental facilities when it comes to managing your … [Read more...]

For those of you following my open source video card build, VGATonic, it's moving onto the next round in the 2015 Hackaday Prize!  You can follow along over here. As for our normal fare, here you go! Our friend Jason Hull launched a financial help product (and related web site) - check out myFinancialAnswers; it looks like he's got a good … [Read more...]

I haven't done a Weekender for some time, sorry about that!  I had been polishing up the video card I've been working on, which I'm happy to say is in very usable shape (if you are inclined to build one, that is, not buy one).  For you technical folks, here is a link. Otherwise, let's highlight some good pieces! Our friend Sandi Martin … [Read more...]

It's been a long time since I've written up a weekender - apologies for that!  My wife and I have been on vacation (I don't think we warned you anywhere; apologies for a second time) and we just got back.  The Weekender, unfortunately, wasn't at the top of our priorities list during that time - but now that we're back, expect more frequent … [Read more...]

I've got the motivation back on my graphics card project, ever since getting it running on a Raspberry Pi the other day.  Follow along here if you're interested in the "engineering hobby" side of PK.  (Yeah, yeah... I know - I have "interesting" hobbies.) Otherwise, you're in the right spot - the finance spot. Links We Liked! Hey, look, an … [Read more...]

I'm getting (staying?) sloppy - I let an engineering post slip missing pictures and video.  Six years in and I still can't schedule correctly, haha. Let's try that again this week, shall we?  Don't tell your friends what it was; it's supposed to be a surprise!  (Plus I have to upload to YouTube - joy.) Anyway, here's some good stuff you … [Read more...]
