Re: Alcohol

Now i'm back on the old habits and trying to find the right balance.

Re: Radiology

I have a public job in the health department in my city. I basically fix their computers so i'm going to health care settings all the time, but i don't get to see the nasty stuff of the hospitals because i don't do maintenance there, just in the small places. I'm in proximity with X-ray techs since ...

Radiology

My paycheck now is ~R$900,00 working 40hrs/wk, the new income would be something like R$1300,00, but the biggest thing would be working only 24hrs/wk (i can take 2 jobs if i want). What ...

Re: The Man Who Lives Without Money

I like the fact that you can read it online for free also. So many people do stuff this like this but then make a $14.95 book or something. Not exactly putting their money where their mouth is. He does seem to be selling a ~$20.00 book also but at least you have the choice. Obviously the book itsel...

Re: Another car question

I'm thinking about keeping the car for two more years and i will be ready to move out. Once i move out i sell the car and keep the money. It'll be losing some value, but since it's a gift i'll still be good and my parents will not be that offended. I'll see the distance between my home and work in t...

Re: Another car question

Don't sell it. Give it back to your parents and stop using it. I can't give it back. They don't want to pay anything related to this car, they already have other bills to pay and another car. I already asked them if the car is really mine now and i can do anything i want with it. If i want to sell,...

Re: Another car question

I use the car to work and weekends. Everyday really. The costs of owning the car will be almost R$1800/year. My salary is R$12000/year. The car sucks up to 15%. Plus i don't know anything about cars. Walking to work will be a issue right now. I would need to wake up 1 hour earlier, it's a long walk ...

Re: In Pursuit of Full-Immersion & The Renaissance (Wo) Man

If you do not even know if it exists, how do you know it is even possible? I don't. It's in the teachings, this is what i'm saying. I'm not saying it's true or that i believe. It's just there. That means that if I want proof, I should go away? Should I believe blindly? In a way, yes. But the belief...

Re: Linux

If you want to go beyond the graphical interface and learn how Linux really works, i think you'll have to dig deeper.

I'd go with Arch Linux. It's easier than Gentoo, but you'll learn a lot of things too.
After that you can go with Gentoo.
