Clusterfuck Nation: http://jameshowardkunstler.typepad.c...erfuck_nation/

Except the name, it is work safe. He posts a rant each Monday talking about how the American economy is doomed due to subprime lending and peak oil. Or he rants about bad architecture and suburbia. I like him because of his curmudgeonly nature. He has some good points, though he is a bit overdramatic with the doom and gloom scenarios.

As does Google. I use Google Browser Sync. It also syncs up stored passwords, cookies, and history if you desire, encrypted as well.

I know about those things but really have no faith in any online place to store passwords and other private data...especially when I do online banking and so forth. Call me paranoid....but works for me.

I don't store passwords for online banking, E-Trade, or any of my financial stuff. Only for forums and stuff that I could really care less if someone decrypts and hacks into with my password.

Your wife/gf won't thank me if she has to pay all your bills! Ha.....Seriously, remember that this guy made his money before he went all crazy....so that helps , but definitely still a great book and inspiration to live the day and take control.

The line to be ordinary and make average money is a mile long....the line to take risks and get big rewards is non-existant....so on the bright side your competition to be great will be very small....so it's wide open for possibilities.
