I am overwhelmed, I was given 2840 a semester in community college and i dont know what to do with it all? I don't have a car or a phone, so maybe I should buy a phone? I've been using a flipphone tracphone my last year in college and I ran out of minutes and i havent bought any. Actually my last year in college all I did was get my class fees waived and i had to pay only 30 dollars. I've always wondered what it was like to be able to text people so freely. Last year I also went for hours to the library because I couldnt afford textbooks, this year i can buy some too. Should I eat out more? Should I not be spending it? I have a laptop, it's the only thing I own that worth any money so I don't need another. I've never had so much money. Am I able to buy new clothes with it? I don't know what to do. I don't think I could spend it all to be honest. I want to use the money on things I really need.3 AnswersFinancial Aid6 years ago
I've started seriously trying to lose weight, eating alot less, more exercise . I started benching, deadlifts, curls, squats and in the first month and a half I lost about twenty pounds. On top of this I noticed my pecs get noticeably bigger, not sure about my other muscles though. I'm still way overweight and I eat about 500-1200 calories a day at MAX. I don't ever binge eat, I am completely serious about this weight loss. I stopped losing weight about a week and a half ago so I started running alot, about ten miles this week, which is alot for me. I haven't reverted back to any bad eating habits and I fail to believe I'm replacing it with muscle. I get as much protein as I can and take a multivitamin. If I continue as I am I believe I should lose weight but I'm getting worried that I won't. Thank you for any advice you may have.18 AnswersDiet & Fitness7 years ago
I have someone who can teach me but other than that I haven't made a move to learn how to drive. Do I go to the DMV and take the written test first? Then I get trained my mom until I'm good enough and then go to take the driving test? I am in California if that helps with the answer. Sorry, I have been very lazy with this portion of my life, but I have managed to save 2000 dollars to buy a car and I need to start learning.1 AnswerInsurance & Registration7 years ago

He took my moms debit card and spent money using paypal, he donated 250$ to a stupid minecraft server, if i file a claim can i get my moms money back because we really needed that money. I went on their site and it says all donations are non refundable.
Does paypal find a way to refund this or should i tell my mom to not expect her money back.2 AnswersOther - Business & Finance8 years ago
Ok so my computer was VERY laggy (since my cpu was failing so i thought i would get a new CPU and new motherboard and RAM. I already had a great graphics card and a 600 watt power supply so a new CPU and mobo would be fine. At frys electronics they install the CPU and stock fan into the mobo for 30$ so i thought hell, why not?
It was and FM1 CPU and a FM1 socket mobo and they told me to come back in an hour because they needed to update the BIOS for he CPU to work. I waste an hour can come back and they tell me they are incompatible so i get an equally good cpu and they say they cant finish installing it today. I get a grounder and go home to install it myself.(i couldn't get a refund on the installation fee)
I grounded myself and put everything on top of wood. I install everything very gently making sure the CPU went in perfectly, connecting the power, etc. I try to turn it on and it turns on for less than a second and shuts off (you can see the fans starting). I was very dissapointed, but i thought that the PSU was too low, so i bought a 850 watt PSU and went home. I switched everything and i get the same problem. I cant think of whats wrong with my system i grounded myself for everything and did everything perfectly.
The only thing i can think of is that they tried updating the BIOS on the motherboard or altered it to try to make the CPU work or something, unless my hard drive is the culprit (i really dont think its the hard drive). I honestly dont know what to do. I'm not sure whether to go to frys and **** their **** up for giving me a bad mobo they ruined.
More info on frys: I pay 30$ and they install the first CPU say it looks fine, they guy gets angry and says that he has to update BIOS to get the CPU to work. He told me to comeback in an hour to pick it up, i come back and he is gone so i ask the other computer guy about my processor and mobo, he looks around and cant find it. I see it at the back and he gets it and i ask why it wasnt installed. We go back and forth arguing about whether they are compatible he opens it up in front of me and everything fits nicely. He goes to the back and calls the guy who worked on it and he tells me that he said they arent compatible.
I get a refund on the cpu and get another cpu and they say they wont be able to install it today and ill have to pick it up the next day. I say that i cant come to frys so casually (more than an hour drive there and back). so i ask him if i can get a refund on their installation and i cant(made me mad) so i bought a grounder and went home.
i come back in two days with my mom for the PSU, i just bought it quick and left quick to save time. And my mom told me when we were leaving that the guy who worked on my mobo and cpu kept looking over at me and seemed nervous.
TL;DR I think fry's gave me a bad mobo, but im not sure, it might be something else.2 AnswersDesktops8 years ago

I've had this story in my head for 2 years and it's transformed into more than it ever was at the start. I almost have everything worked out perfectly. Every time I have a chance to think it is usually me trying to improve on my story. Whats hardest is making names for everybody, when in my head I have an image for everybody but no names other than two characters and some minor antagonists.

So My computer has been acting up so I've been running malware bytes everyday for about a week and nothin has been detected. I get on steam play dota 2, I start getting signed out multiple times and then steam tells me I need to give access to my computer again after a small update. I do so but after this my right and left mouse buttons get switched. I open notepad and type "gtfo you motherf***ing ****** and a bunch of other pointless things( at the moment I thought it would be a longshot if someone was there). Then an error message pops up on a window saying "bye pl0x". I then type more obscene notions to the guy using notepad and a random chat window opens up where his name in the chat is "god" and I am "slave" he says "good bye" and I respond with "why are you doing this and I don't get a reply. I then jolt to control panel to try to factory reset (I think that might fix it lol) and then before I could he shuts my screen off. Then today I get on dota, get logged off again, get back on and I was given low priority status for 15462 days. I open notepad and type some stuff to him an i get signed off of steam again and when I get back on it is normal. Dota 2 is from valve and he changed something on it and valve is a big company. I'm at my wits end, what do I do?
Other stuff: -I dont use credit cards online
-It wont let me reset without my cd and I lost it
-I am on my iPod typing this
-Nothing valuable on my computer, I'm in high school ffs5 AnswersSecurity9 years ago
i have an amd phenom x4 810 and in games i lag. During games, i lag for 1-5 seconds or the screen completely freezing. When i play dota 2 it only lags at the start of it when i pick my hero and maybe one more time a few minutes in but after that it doesnt lag. I have a program open and it says the core speed is 797.8 MHz and i think it should be 2600MHz because the cpu is 2.6GHz. i see it jump to 2600 MHz every once in a while but right now it is sitting at 800 Mhz almost indefinitely. Maybe when i run games it will go higher but im not sure. Do i need to update some stuff because i honestly dont know if i HAVE to buy a new cpu. Ill post some specs from dxdiag

Im writing something and I need some names. I rather the names feel original and not be (very) common names. I remember hearing the name Ambrose (old doctor) on the discovery channel and thought that name was rather original and uncommon. Any names are appreciated, and don't feel threatened about the originality of the names as long as it sounds cool lol. Maybe names or slightly altered names of people in history, I'm still looking around. I also need a name for a city.2 AnswersOther - Arts & Humanities9 years ago
