  1. Do you have any money saved up at the moment? Say like $500 or $1,000? If you do, try getting a secured credit card from your bank. You would give them your $500 and then in return get a credit card for $500. Once they see you making monthly payments on time, they would give you youre $500 back and then increase your limit to $1,000 or whatever and you'd have a normal credit card. You would build your credit up faster this way than getting a co-signer.
  2. You definitely need to go to San Francisco and check out the tourist spots like Pier 39 and that funky ass windy road. I forget the name of it off the top of my head. And my best advice is don't get lost in East Oakland. You may not make it out alive.
  3. Look into the USDA rural home loan program. I used this type of loan to buy my home in Lincoln, CA. Here is the link to the site. http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov/eligibility/welcomeAction.do?NavKey=home@1 I looked on their map and it appears Winchester is a city that you can purchase a home in using that loan. Basically you have to buy a home in a "rural" area. Their map will tell you where you can buy and where you can't buy. The loan itself is $0 down out of your pocket. You do finance the home at 102% but there is no PMI. You just need to fnid a lender that does that type of loan. I believe that site gives a list of all of the lenders. If you already have a finance company in mind, just ask if they offer that loan.
  4. I never cared for X Raided. Lynch, C-Bo, and Gangsta Dre are my Sactown favorites.
  5. I double the tax when eating at a restaurant and leave that as the tip and I tip a $1 or $2 when getting a haircut. I'll also tip a $1 or $2 for the pizza delivery driver as well. Other than that I don't tip anyone else. Tipping a mechanic or someone who installs tires seems a little strange.
  6. Drive slow cause the cops will pull you over with the quickness. I used to go to the Grad back in the day to get my club on but I don't know if it's still open or not.
  7. If you can spend the extra $88 I would go with this tv instead. It's an led lcd. http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=prod1260337&navAction=push
  8. I was expecting Roger Troutman and his voice box.
  9. I know I'm late to the party but I think you can just use a code puller to pull the code and it clears it for awhile at least. My check engine light was on my 2002 VW Jetta and would not go away even though nothing was wrong with the car. I used a code puller to clear everything and drove that bitch to the dealership to trade that POS in.
  10. I would go with the 4 15's Ed just quoted you. They hold 600 rms and will be a hell of a lot better than those p1's. Anything less than p3's is not worth it.
  11. Does your local phone company offer dedicated adsl? It's a dry loop and does not require dial tone on an active phone number.
  12. I picked it up yesterdy and played it for about an hour. Got to level 2 already. I can't wait to get to higher levels so I can start buying the big boy cars.
  13. Yeah sounds like the battery is dead. I have the 80G version and my battery died earlier this year. I tried a battery a kit to replace it myself and it was a bitch. I couldn't get the cover off so I tried 3 people at work to help me who all said they had replaced their batterys in other versions and they couldn't get it off either. I ended up making an appointment with the Apple store (genius or whatever). Paid $60 and they took back my old ipod and gave me a brand new one. If they didn't have any stock the guy said they would have mailed one to my house and I would have had to wait about a week. I just wonder what they are going to do when they run out of the older versions? Give us newer versions maybe?
  14. Now the question is can you take their 2k and apply it to the $6700? What about paying $4700 to have it flown?
  15. Military doesn't pay for it? Or do they pay for the boat ride and you would have to come out of pocket for the air ride home?
