    I started as a technical writer at my company (software development) but am a business analyst now.

    What are you looking for in a new position? A track that will stay focused on writing/editing or...

    I love England; I feel at home there in a way I don't anywhere else in the world. My next big trip will probably be hiking Hadrian's Wall in England, actually.

    But I just got back from a...

    I ride at two different barns. Both trainers are aware of the situation and 100% supportive, which means we get to have very open and honest conversations about how my entire horse experience/goals...

    Unfortunately, everything you've mentioned throws up red flags, no matter what the reasons behind them are. Realistically, time off work == serious lameness issue to most buyers. Requires maintenance...

    Why would you sweat her neck in hot/humid weather? Horses have a hard enough time in the sort of weather you mention -- there's no need to make her more miserable for the sake a short-term (lasts...

    I really like him also and wanted to find more horses with him in their pedigree -- that site is going to give me even more help than I was hoping to get. Thanks!

    You can't prevent it.

    I used the DMCA on a particularly nasty plagiarist to some success.

    Due to that experience, and after talking with a lawyer, I formally registered copyright on my blog; I...

    I have been there. I went to a few counseling sessions. It helped. We talked about what I could/should do, what I couldn't/shouldn't do, how to cope with the stress it was causing me (in part because...

    I feel like people should pay me to NOT make potato salad. Think of all the food poisoning it would avert.

    It might have gone down. This initially came across my FB feed and there were comments there about Kickstarter "adjusting" things. Or people can change/cancel their pledges.

    From what I understand, you are pledging to make the donation as long as the person reaches their goal. I think he has to wait until the entire campaign is over, though, and then Kickstarter charges'...
  14. Kickstarter reaches a new level of ridiculousness

    Someone has $65K+ in pledges so he can make potato salad.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/324283889/potato-salad

    You read that right.

    $65,000.

    Mikes MCS, I mentioned this thread, view counts, and the number of people struggling to understand the rules.

    It's as accurate a representation of the conversation as I could make it without having a recorder, but it's not a transcription. It's a 180 degree turn from what I have always understood as well,...

    To be clear, my post is not a word-for-word transcription of Diana's comments. It is my summary of the conversation.

    Ok, I just got off the phone Diana Tartal at USEF. I want to make a few things VERY clear:

    - By the time I called her, the conversation WAS NOT about Robert Gage or Perfect Prep in particular.

    I emailed USEF this morning and have been clarifying things with them since. They are very responsive. I don't think anyone should be taking anyone's word on what is legal under the Drug and...

    It doesn't matter if you put "no returns" in the text--if the buyer feels the saddle was misrepresented, they can still start a complaint/refund/whatever it is process against you, and eBay/PayPal...

    The disorientation would be the red flag for me. I've known a few dogs who went senile and I don't think it's a good QOL.

    However--if he went blind rapidly, his disorientation may be related to...
