• I need real help with a diet plan and a workout routine?

    I've obviously googled this, but as you know the "information pool" is so polluted that a person can't really make heads or tails of it. So many "get thin quick schemes, gym offers, workout DVDs, magic pills", etc. I'm male, 5-10, 40 years old, 60 pounds overweight and just want a simple plan. I don't mind... show more
    I've obviously googled this, but as you know the "information pool" is so polluted that a person can't really make heads or tails of it. So many "get thin quick schemes, gym offers, workout DVDs, magic pills", etc. I'm male, 5-10, 40 years old, 60 pounds overweight and just want a simple plan. I don't mind eating pretty much the same thing every day. I make enough money to join a gym and pretty much buy whatever foods, shakes, vitamins, supplements, etc that I need at the store. My goals is to get close to my ideal weight, then put on enough muscle to look better that the average 40 year old. I'd just like others to share what has worked for them OR point me toward a website that is more interested in giving me good information than selling me magic pills. I honestly just want to figure out a realistic plan and follow that. Thank you for your time.

  • Garage door won't stay up, but isn't "heavy"?

    My spring broke 16 months ago. The door was then very heavy and would almost kill you if you let it slam down. I'm offering this history so you'll know that I am familiar with what a door feels like when the spring is in fact broken. We had the spring replaced and all was good...until..... So, last week, the automatic garage door opener started to act up. Only opening a few feet, but not always stopping in the same spot. I lubed the wheels, the screw, etc, checked for blockages at the sensor. The sensors, screw, wheels all checked out. Then I smartened up and disconnected the garage door opener altogether. I lifted the door with my arms, it wasn't "heavy" like it would be with a broken spring. However, I noticed that when I put the garage door all the way up manually, it would not stay open. It would come back down. So, I don't think the spring is bad, but something is wrong. What would make the door not stay up anymore? Thanks in advance

    My end-users receive specific files as attachments every day, sometimes several a day, from a subscription service. I need to make sure the emails are deleted after two weeks so that mailboxes don't blow up. As an end-user, I can create a rule to move those files to a subfolder under Inbox. Then, I can make that folder auto archive to just delete the emails containing the attachments after 2 weeks. Cool solution. NOW the fun begins: how can I push this plan to the entire organization without visiting every desktop? Policy needs to: Create the folder, implement the move rule, then apply the auto archive settings. I don't think it can be done via Policy based on my research. However, I'm here at Yahoo! Answers to see if anyone has a solution. Thanks for your ideas

I hate how long it takes to get an interview for a job I am an exact fit for. I hate having to tailor a resume to "fit" the advertisement. I hate that jobs are "bought and sold" by agencies. I hate telling some HR manager what they want to hear instead of being myself. I hate that the same HR person asks questions that they themselves don't even know the answer to. I hate having to really figure out what the job is about because the listing asks for anything and everything that might remotely be related to the position. What do you hate?

    (This question will only make sense if you actually do Exchange email journaling in a production environment. While your help is appreciated, please don't waste time directing me to any off the shelf "attachment remover" products. This problem is more complicated that that.) At work we do email journaling with envelope option. So, when I open the journal account, all emails are technically attachments I drill down into, then I see the real email. Normally, this is a great way to ensure all data is captured. For purposes of a project that has been assigned, I need to take about 2 weeks worth of email (copied into a working .pst), and pull it out of all of those envelopes and turn it into a "normal looking" email box so it can be manipulated by a product that will only work with the original emails. Anybody know of a way to extract all of these emails at once, rather than opening each envelope and dragging the .msg out? Thanks in advance

    Are you an excel genius? I have 100 ends users that are dumb as sh!t. Unfortunately, some of them are higher up in the org chart than me. We are switching phone numbers company-wide. I've tried to explain six ways from Sunday how a telephone number transition will give each one of them a new number on the new system based on their old number. They still don't get it, even when I line the numbers up side by side in Excel. So, I've decided to send out a (simpler) excel spreadsheet. One that lets them pull their number from drop down menu, then see their new number in a cell a few columns over. I might even throw in some stick figures and speech bubbles for good measure. And stink lines. I can enter all 100 old numbers in a column (starting at let's say A5) and create a drop down (in A1) based on this column. I can enter the new numbers in a column, starting at B5. I need code to populate the target cell with their new phone number from the other list. For instance, if in the drop down menu in A1, pick the value that is in A10, I need the code in B1 to supply the value of B10 Hopefully, that made sense. How can I do this? Bonus points for any advice on how to deal with childlike adults that have no business being in the positions they are in.

I don't have to worry about food spoilage, but I am concerned about power cycling the device once a day, every day. Can turning it off for 12 hours, then back on for 12 hours have any negative effect, if repeated for eternity? Thanks in advance.

Cons: It was moved via van once, out of packaging. It powers up, but I've not tested (nor could test) every option/connector. No remote, no warranty. Older plasma technology. About 3 years old, wall mounted, powered down most of the time. Is this an issue? Newer technology TVs, granted a bit smaller of course, can be purchased all day long for $750 - $1000. TVs this size are also under $2000 now, and are not plasma. I'm leaning toward a 47 inch that's brand spankin' new instead, but if someone here raises their hand and says "Buy it you fool!!" then I want get get that opinion and the reasons. Thanks

That being said, I'm trying to decide between the Stainless or the Tactical with factor flash suppressor. I plan on using an aftermarket stock, scope, etc. My understanding is that aftermarket flash suppressors are somewhat tricky (if not actually just plain not recommended) post 2005 models. I want a suppressor, but I also like the look and feel of the stainless gun. Factory stainless with factory suppressor is not an option. I'm leaning toward giving up on the stainless and just having an all black weapon so that I don't have to screw around with a suppressor down the road. What would you choose? Thanks
