  • Misstated Square footage - off by 50%?

    My wife and I purchased a home in 2006, that was listed at 1427 square feet (this was calculated by the seller's appraiser).

    My wife and I purchased a home in 2006, that was listed at 1427 square feet (this was calculated by the seller's appraiser). This is the square footage listed on our mortgage documents, the MLS listing, all of that. When I attempted to contact my bank to see about a ReFi a few weeks ago, they stated, and the local assessor's office verified, that the local assessor's office had the property listed at 977. The reason behind the discrepancy is that the appraiser counted the partially-finished basement as part of the living space, which is a "non-standard and invalid" (words of the city assessor, not mine) practice. Do I have grounds for redress, either through a professional standards board or the courts? This home is in St. Louis, Missouri - if you have specific informaton on the practices within the state of missouri, your advice is six steps past welcome.

  • How do I change how frequently Outlook attempts to get new messages?

    This is getting maddening. My inbox is currently set to connect to the server and search for mail every 5 seconds - each time, I click over to it, and get caught in an email loop of send, check, receive. How do I reset that search for new mail timer to, say, every 10 minutes? Much appreciated.

  • Are there any takaful life insurance policies in the US?

    I am considering transitioning into a career in insurance, and there is a mosque in my neighborhood (normally I would consider asking to speak with the imam on this, but I want to avoid embarrasing or offending him or myself).

    I am considering transitioning into a career in insurance, and there is a mosque in my neighborhood (normally I would consider asking to speak with the imam on this, but I want to avoid embarrasing or offending him or myself). I know that commercial life insurance is forbidden for Muslims, because it contains aspects of gharar, masir, and riba. I also know that in Europe there are some companies that sell or underwrite community-funded defined life insurance plans that meet the definition of takaful. But I'm curious whether a) there are any such companies or policies in the US, and b) there are any life insurance policies available in the US that meet this guideline? Serious answers from those with specific knowledge is much appreciated.

    I recognize that without an OBD reader, this is just a question with no actual way to find the answer, but being pointed in a narrower field of direction might help. I have a 2000 4-cylinder Camry that has 90000 miles. This afternoon, I was pulling up to a stoplight when the engine began shuddering - not badly, but it was obvious. As soon as this happened, the check engine light flashed 8 or 9 times, then stopped. I had to slow down twice more on the way to my parking garage, with no problems until I made a right-hand turn into the garage - no shuddering, but light came on again. Then, moving through the garage, another shudder and the light again, then it stopped. From my limited experience, I'm going to guess it's an ignition coil, though I don't know (thus, I'm here). Any other theories? And should i try to drive it home, or leave it at work until the shop can take it on Friday?

    I'm having a little trouble with my home's wireless network. I'm using a D-Link wireless router running off of a DSL modem. I have a desktop that is wired directly into the router, which connects to the internet okely-dokely. My wife had a Dell laptop running Vista that connected without problems as well. Now we have switched to a MacBook laptop that has occasional hiccups: It connects to the router just fine - detects the signal, logs on, and can browse shared files on the desktop (so, intranet works). However, internet connectivity is an issue - she cannot reliably browse. I have a Gateway laptop with the same problem. I'm using WEP encryption (nothing has changed since we switched from the Dell to the Mac), firewall is active (but that's external, so shouldn't be a problem), and the PS3 and Wii connect just fine. What's the deal?

    For some reason, despite the fact that a goodly portion of my clothing says "Hand wash only," whenever I use woolite detergent the colors still run, and I have to drain my sink after every clothing item. I'm using FAR less than the recommended amount of detergent, I'm very gentle, I'm washing clothes that I've washed dozens of times before (all handwash), and I'm using nothing but cold water. What's the deal? This even happens with clothing that doesn't specifically recommend handwashing, but instead recommends machine washing. Is there another/better handwashing detergent than woolite out there? Is it the water? Do I just suck at cleaning laundry? Should I invest in a loincloth, a spear, and a one-way ticket to the rainforest?

  • What plant has the highest Net Primary Productivity?

    I know that the regions of the planet with highest NPP are swamps and marshes on land, and regions of the ocean prone to algal blooms. So that'd be deltas and the like, I guess. But is there any one particular plant with the highest NPP? Is it even really measurable on a species-by-species basis?

  • How was Craig Biggio's 3000th hit scored?

    If I recall correctly, he laced a ball to second field, and was thrown out trying to reach second (centerfielder threw to second baseman to tag him sliding into second). So how was this hit scored under official scoring standards? Would it have been a 1B, 8-4?
