So just wondering what anyone else thinks is the most efficient way...

All different users. Also saw this in Books & Authors - must have been 25 questions about what a novel is / fiction vs. nonfiction. No links in anything and, again, not repeater posters, so it doesn't seem spammy. Is it some sort of click bait or aggregator or what the hell??

  • Another question for you helpful tomato people! Will I get more tomatoes?

    A friend of mine gave me some tomato plants this year. We threw them in a couple pots and lo and behold - tomatoes! We got a fair amount of fruit for maybe a month (well, whatever the rodents didn't snatch before we could) and now there is nothing. No signs of new flowers or fruit. Are they history or could we get another round?

I had a friend tell me that if I pick the tomato when it first gets color and let it ripen in the house in the sun, it will taste the same and be spared destruction. Thoughts? Also - do you think tomato plants can grow in the house??!! These are in big pots and we actually have a tiled floor space with plenty of sunlight they could live in for the next few weeks. Thanks!!

  • Why does my NVIDIA control panel only show 3D? Where are the rest of the settings?

    I've updated the driver and nothing has changed. I don't even know if my computer is utilizing the damn card. For all I know it's running solely on the Intel onboard graphics. How can I tell and how do I fix the control panel? Dell XPS running Windows 10 Home 64-bit. GeForce GT 750M. Onboard is Intel HD Graphics 4600.

Note: I'm not worried about the actual alcohol, just that "whew" sensation you'd get from a big sniff or swallow of it.

I know there will be penalties and interest. But can I still file an extension now (with the money I owe)? Or do I somehow need to get my actual taxes done and filed? Are there any other forms I need to do because of this? The rejected extension was e-filed, but I can't seem to do that now because it is past tax day. Do I just send a 4868 and my check and wait for them to let me know what happened? Am I in trouble? I'm absolutely panic-struck!
