    Debt consolidation

    We were thinking of doing debt consolidation for our credit cards or taking out a personal loan. Any one do this? Any advice, tips, warnings, etc.? Or would it be better to use the snowball effect and not take out a loan? I don't want anything to mess up our credit. Someone mentioned to me...

    Cool Sentry program

    I don't believe any threads that mention Cool Sentry have been updated. SMECO called and said techs would be in our area, do we want to participate. Told her I'd have to talk to hubby, bills in his name. Any thoughts, good or bad, on this program? Any hidden costs to have it or opt out? TIA.

    I was wondering can you watch current episodes of TV shows on Netflix? For example, I believe you can watch The Walking Dead. Would I be able to watch season 5 when it starts Oct. 12th?

    I don't know the actual verdict, but a group on FB, that's been very active in the "Justice for Tank" movement, just posted today was a sad day in St. Mary's County. I'm guessing it didn't go well :(

The thermostat at work is set to 73 yet even though it reads 73 it still says cooling and it's blowing air. Are they...

    This pic is the back of my computer. The fan near the power supply started making noise. I took the back off, blew out the dust but it's still making noise. Is there anything else I should check? Am I going to have to replace it? TIA.
