Trying to both buy and sell a home at the same time in this current housing market is a royal pain in the butt

Ok, so only half of this process is proving to be difficult. In this market I could've run my car into the front of my house before putting it on the market and it would've sold in a week.

Good luck in Utah!

I also wanted to share some news from Siberia (the part of Russia I sympathize with these days, in some ways). It's burning. And yes, fatal traffic accidents reportedly are occurring in that smoke, though they made it in this video:

Briefly hijacking this thread because I don't wanna keep starting new ones for random questions: anybody here do any work with audio (Youtube videos, voiceovers, podcasts, whatever)? I'm thinking about dipping my toes into making either videos or a podcast, so I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations for a reasonably priced mic. Preferably dynamic + USB since I no longer have an audio interface or a place that'd be suitable to record w/a condenser.

I used to run a small studio so I always kept up with the latest gear and whatnot, but apparently my brain reformatted that partition because I can't remember a damn thing anymore lol

What happened? (as in why did you punch it)
Windows 10 has never been as stable as Windows 7, yet I need it to run certain programs like ArcGIS - but some programs like Google Earth Pro that ran fine on Windows 7 don't run fine on Windows 10 (might be some hardware specific issues here too, but I digress). So yes, some programs crash, and sometimes when programs crash they take hours of hard work with them. I also have issues with anger (and intrusive thoughts, but that's another topic) so combining that with random program crashes is a dangerous combination...

I feel your pain after having lost sooooooo much to computers.

I was once installing vinyl siding on a house. Across the front there were 2 bay windows with the front door in between. I did one side from the corner to the door from ground to 7 ft, then did the other side, and when I got to the top of the door there was a ~2" difference. I was pissed. I'd been careful to follow my torpedo level round the bays, and now I was out of an hour's work. I checked the level and it was off, and now I was REALLY pissed, so much so that I laid the level on the concrete porch smashing it with my hammer as I cussed it loudly. Unknown to me the man I was working for had stepped around the corner watching then he said "Phil, what in the hell are you doing?" I pointed at the unmatched siding and told him that my level had lied to me causing that, and I was making sure it never told a lie to anyone ever again. He damn near fell over laughing, and when he finally was able to speak he said "You're right- you fixed that level really well now. Calm down a minute and I'll get you mine, but you gotta promise to not beat it to death". Now it was my turn to almost fall over laughing thinking about how it all had to look to him :p He said I was still on the clock, just go back and fix it and don't worry about it :cool:

I don't know if there's a moral to my story but sometimes $#!+ happens and there's nothing you can do about it except figure out what went wrong and try again.
