Ebay Feedback Calculator

Millions of people buy and sell various things on Ebay. Occasionally someone will get mad and leave a negative comment.  I've gotten one and have called Ebay a few times trying to figure out how many sales I need to make to get my percentages up to at least 99.5 or higher. 

A couple months ago and Ebay representative told me that their was a formula and as the conversation continued I forgot to get it.

Today searching the internet I have found the answer.

Here it is.

Hope this helps anyone and everyone. No registration no log in just the formula.
Thank you

Tesla Model S on Autopilot Test

Yes you really should click on this link and watch the 1.25 minute 
video showing how Tesla operates on the highway while on auto-pilot 
aka cruise control. The next time everyone reads about a Tesla Crash 
while on autopilot will think of this movie. Elon Musk is a genius and 
his automobiles are not really at fault are they?
Thank you


Cryptocurrency Investing 2018

Please read this whole page before clicking links. Unregulated and running 24/7. On the far right click view all. The highest price sorts to the top. The first is Bit20 coin is trading today May 15th, 2018 8:40 AM EST at $836,429.00. Once you get past that shocker then click on 24 hour change. Yescoin up 4063% in 24 hours. Investing $250.00 yesterday would have gotten you 2.9 million coins.
Forgetting the number of coins. Doesn't matter.
This matters,
$250.00 invested over 24 hours ago times 4063% Equals $10,232.00.
$50.00 invested over 24 hours ago times 4063% Equals $2031.00
Bunnycoin I invested pretend a week ago and I am up to $1987.00 after investing $500.00. May 20th I am still up to $1036.00 Personally I would sold it by now.
Look at coins here.   The link will open a new Google Tab.

On the far right of the page click view all. If you don't you will only sort the first 100.
So click again on the price tab. Sort bringing up the lowest priced coins to
the top. At the bottom of the page click to the 21st page. You will now see
coins priced at .000000600, Investing $10.00 a week in them all or a few.

Apparently first you must buy a tiny percentage of a bitcoin. then sell it and invest in lower priced coins.

2018 top Cryptocurrency brokers USA Link This will open a second Google Tab.

I pretend I began investing a week ago. I found this website and I add coins
that are trading at about .00000XX. I pretend $500.00 in each. I add them into my account. Here. The link will open third Google Tab. The portfolio page does not allow you toi save the investment amount of money so just to watch use the same amount for all.

Update: I had pretended I invested TTC Protocol. My $500.00 went up to $62,500.00 in six months. Today is October 11,2018.So I guess if you are lucky picking a coin you can make serious money.

Update: December 7, 2018. All my investments have tanked. I had pretended
that I had invested $11,000.00 in 22 various cryptocurrencies. In less than a year the value of my account as of today would have been $1084.23. Investing into anything that isn't backed up with hard core data or information is ridiculous.

Movie pass as an example sounds great if explained stating membership totals and early reviews however a loser.

Update: January 23, 2019. If I had invested real money I would be broke.
Update: April 20, 2019 My total value had I really invested $11,000 now is at $1,174.00.

Update: August 2, 2021 Well as I often have said you do not realize
the loss of any investment till you sell it. it has been a little over two years since I have checked this and well my portfolio is now worth. $518,661.09

Cryptocurrency is not based on anything. No earning report nothing. Just a name and an idea of future business.

Investing The new Nasdaq

Tesla has announced a stock split. Five for one. Stock price is hovering at $2,000 per share. So most of us have money to invest and as an example $2,000.00. At $2,000 a share we'd get one share. Whoopie. At the end of August actually the 31st the stock split will occur and the stock will then be $400 a share. Five shares. Well I think anyone and everyone will buy it at $400 per share and in a two year period it will be back to $2,000 a share. Then your investment will be worth a cool $10 grand. Maybe in a few years it will do it again and again.

People talk about high risk high gain. Twenty two years ago I did great investing.
This is when Netscape was coming into play. Cisco before all the splits.
Now there is Cryptocurrency Investing.

My father asked me to explain to him what I knew about investing in the stock market. PE? he asked me umm I'm not sure. Something times earnings umm I'm not sure. So what the hell makes you think you'll make money he asked me as he sipped his Johnny Walker on the rocks.

Well look at the this and I opened the Atlanta Journal Newspaper to the stock pages. See here if I had 100 shares of this stock I would have made $200.00 today.

He then asked me what all the columns were. Volume high low pretty easy but he'd come back to the PE. I told him as I sipped my Bacardi and Coke You know I don't know and I don't really care. You see look at this I would made blah blah blah. 

In January 1996 I bought 300 shares of Cisco. CSCO at about $4.03 a share I was frigging thrilled. My father told me I was an idiot. February 1996 a 2 for 1 split. 12-97 a 3 for 2 split then 9-98 3 for 2 split then 6-99 a 2 for 1 then 3-2000 a 2 for 1. I had 5400 shares.  Then March 18th 2000 I panicked. It is at $70.00 a share I put a stop lose in at $65.00 and a sell at $80.00. Ten minutes later I freaking out and told my investment banker to dump it all now. In fact I told her to dump everything I had. I was luckily ten months before the
day of the big correction. Dumped my IBM, Motorola, Home Depot.

President Trump Audit Credit Card Charges All Politicians

If someone that works for the Federal Government spends money that is out of line then they should have to repay the money. Federal Government employees that have credit cards are all expenses for only job related requirements?. I doubt it.
Hell this is where are tax dollars are going. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen.

$122,000.00 for a two day meeting in Europe is nuts. The entire trip was ten days but no one asked me to approve this. The below I found on the internet.
Sen. Charles Schumer spent $292,000 in public money flying private airplanes in 2015. 
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand spent more than $150,000 on charter travel.
Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming spent more than $75,000 in 2015 year flying charters.

$191,000.00 for Doors?
2009  Sens. John Cornyn and Chuck Schumer each spent more than $140,000 in taxpayer money on travel in the first half of the fiscal year. On Dec. 2, for example, Schumer spent $4,000 to take a private plane from New York City to Albany and back again. Delta and US Airways both fly that 140-mile route several times a day, with fares ranging from around $400 to less than $200 if purchased in advance.
Searching on the internet I have found that

Congress has 535 voting members:made up of 435 Representatives and 100 Senators. I would suggest the audit begins there. At first just audit two months. December 2017 year end totals and January 2018. If anything is found out of line then all agencies of the Federal Government needs to be audited.

Maybe begin auditing what the government is spending money on.

I would venture to guess if a Federal Government employee buys something
for an office and it does not work then they just put whatever it is in a closet and at some point later either throw it away, give it away or take it home.

I think the Federal Government should issue cell phones Federal Government employees to be used on job and not for personal usage. How many Federal Government employees buy and pay for personal cell phones used for both personal and business use.

How many Federal Government employees used their expense account to buy the new iPhone X?

Auditing our house will reduce enough money to fully fund the Social Security and that damn wall he wants.

AT&T U-verse TV Wireless Receiver

ATT U-Verse upped the bill $5.00 a month. So we have three TV's. One newer DVR receiver.  So they upped my bill five dollars and I will show you how to save $15.00 a month. Change out the receivers and once you buy install and verify it works then send them the old receivers.The DVR is ATT U-verse branded with the model number PH8005.
EBay click here $30.00 delivered. Three months investment back. Bill down $10.00 a month. Amazon click here. Nope not there.
On my additional TV's is a Cisco ISB7005 or PN: 4040836. Most are under $25.00 delivered. A couple months your investment is back bill goes down $10.00 a month.
Amazon click here. Nope not there.
Most are used on EBay. Spending under fifty dollars in three months your investment has paid off the bill will go down $20.00 but really $15.00 because it went up $5.00.

So I spent $180.00 a year for five years on two things I could have bought for $50.00. I suggest that you do this right away. I spent $900.00 over the five years. 
Guess you are still doing this. huh? 

We have signed up with Direct TV. Going through Costco we get one DVR at no cost forever. $300.00 cash back. Costco deal here.
Thank you

GenX Millennials Baby Boomers

Here are the birth years for each generation:
  • Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 and later. 21 to 39 years old
  • Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 to 1995. 40 to 51 years old
  • Generation X: Born 1965 to 1976. 52 years old
  • Baby Boomers: Born 1946 to 1964. Toast Doesn't matter
  • Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before

It seems that the end of the baby boomers is upon us as big businesses try to adapt to the millennials and soon the GenZ. 

The new stadium in Atlanta was designed to be loved by the millennials and it has worked. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Microsoft Office Professional 2016

In the United States it is illegal to buy and sell Microsoft software with a keycode. Apparently not in Europe. Office Professional with the disk is $380.00 plus. On Ebay there is a seller with this listed for sale at $14.00. You need to log out of your Microsoft account and uninstall any older versions. You'd then buy it off Ebay. The instructions are simple. The seller emails you detailed instructions. The serial number is included. The software is downloaded from Microsoft then you merely put in the key code. The seller emails the buyer the instructions and key code with in 20 hours. The seller does not mail the disk.

I have included a link at the bottom of this post Here.
The installation has all the programs. If you search on Google for Ebay. Then enter the Ebay website. Next merely copy my header or this Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 the listing will come up. You can also copy this and search as well Microsoft Windows 10 Professional. $5.82. The seller in this listing has sold over 29,000 installations.  Well that seller on Ebay is in jail or vacationing at the beach.  Here.  

Searching on that header you will see one seller has sold 10,000+ copies.

The person I bought mine from is probably in Siberia. The link above is working again. The only thing I would do differently is have an account with Microsoft then one you download and install you  activate the software in your account. I didn't do this and in my laptop it is fine and on my desktop it isn't.

2973 installations have been sold. 1057 are watching. $13.35 total cost. As of March 10th 74 % have been sold. This one listing the person is selling 200 a day.

Let us look at this in a different point of view. Pretend you are on business or traveling and you are in Europe and you see this listing. You buy it and install the software. A few days later you return to he United States. Are you in violation of any Microsoft laws. I doubt it.

Works great. Installation is in any language you desire.

Watch this one minute movie showing an example
of why some people have died using 
Tesla Autopilot.

Downloaded and Installed Virus

I tried to find a patch to allow me to play a game on my
home computer. Well during this moment of stupidity I
downloaded and willingly installed a virus.

I think as I remember I was more caught up in the
excitement that I had found a patch. The patch from hell.

A day after I installed the patch my home computer began
showing the symptoms of a virus. My search engine changed
to search.com. At first Yahoo changed then MSN then Google.

Crap. Uninstalled the patch  Worthless move. Damage done.
No longer did I care about the frigging game. Minutes turned
into hours then days as I spent my free time battling the

Messing with the regedit deleting and deleting I finally installed
Zemana and this free trial cleared the issue up. Using Google
in forums I found a solution. Search for one line of code and delete
it. search.ch was gone.

Huge waste of time.
Thank you

Tax The Rich Aweome YouTube Video

Tax The Rich


Some people have some money and some people have no 
money and some people have way too much money.    

The following six short movies on YouTube will take you about 

15 fifteen minutes to watch them all. The series

begins with a male stepping into a Rolls-Royce Wraith and driving 

this Awesome vehicle eventually into a large field sliding sideways 

at I'd guess 70 MPH. Click on Link and enjoy then next fifteen 

minutes.  Click Here and away you'll go.


Web Search in a Foreign Language

I have wanted to show everyone this for a long time but I have
been busy. This will broaden your searches and you will
think darn why didn't I think of this.

I have Google set up to open every search in a new window
so I do not want my first search to go away. You do that in Google
set up. I'm sure you either know that or can figure that out.

I then open a incognito window in Google. Upper right corner
on search but you can figure that out as well. I then close my regular
search page. I always use this because I don't want anything in my
history. I know I can delete history but....

I search translate and click on the link below the sample and a new
page opens. So for an example I want to find this.

fishing in iceland video. I change the language to Icelandic.
This is the translation veiði á Íslandi myndband

So use your imagination and type in any terms you want and
use translate to any language you'd like.
Next merely highlight the translated words on the
right side and search. Away you go.

Google will ask you if you want Google to translate. Click No.

Look for websites that you know are what you are really looking
for. Sometimes I will copy the description or title of the video
and then right click and dig further into the internet.

Always end your search term with the word video unless you
are after pictures.

Remember NO website can see that your machine is infected so
DO NOT install any fix it program from where ever.

I promise you will have see new websites. Some regular visited
website will pop up so if you'd like just copy and paste the
translated terms in there such as in YouTube.

Have a great day.

Used Car For Sale Dealer Price Drop Atlanta

Lastly Cargurus is great to find a used vehicle. Cargurus had an option to check
the price history and time the vehicle was on the lot. I also checked the box
for drop in price. What a scam this is.
Most dealers do this. I took a screen
shot a while ago and this will show you the games they play. The picture
will tell you the full story.

Atlanta market on a 2013 Honda CRV EL is or was in October November 2016
$21,000.00 plus dealer fees plus taxes and tag. We all have to pay the taxes
and tag. Let us forget those costs for a moment. The price someone would pay
for the vehicle is what we are interested in. Off Lease Only in Orlando had a
2014 Honda CRV less than 22,000 miles and a clean car fax report.  $16,999.99.
Plus a $20.00 temporary tag. Two one way air fares Atlanta to Orlando airport.
Delta Air Lines $197.00 times 2 = $400.00.Wife and I. Summary.
$17,000+$20.00+$400.00=$17,420.00 minus $21,000 + dealer fees $650.00=
$21,650.00 subtracted from $17,420.00. Four grand. To me that is huge
money. A year younger CVR with under 22,000 miles $4,000.00 savings.
I am still very happy with my CRV I got from Off Lease only. If you buy a vehicle 
from them tell them the Honda CRV buyer from Atlanta sent you. Thank you

Black Lives Matter 2017

Black and white well actually all lives matter.

I am 64 years old and haven't been arrested. How many people that are 
involved in crimes for the first time? Who do you that has been arrested? 
Who do you know that has been arrested for drugs or fighting. 
Do you know anyone in a gang?. Drug issues and family problems. 
Drinking issues and no education. Gang issues and whatever.  Life is short 
and who wants to spend a good chunk of your life in prison.

We've all got to look ourselves and quit saying it is this or that. In most 
cases we all have had the opportunity to do good. We've had the chance 
to study and get an education but some have chosen not to . They would 
rather go out with friends and do drugs or drink. The internet brings all 
this most anyone's finger tips and available. Rob someone and take their 
money or vehicle.

How many times can you remember a death of a white person and all the 
whites in town get all vocal about it? Marching and causing issues? I 
am guessing most white people think if a white guy gets killed by
anyone then well crap he messed up and got his ass shot.   

Time in a local jail or in prison. Think your tricky and can get away with
whatever. You risk going to jail. The time you'd spend in jail may not be a 
big deal. They feed you three meals a day. They do your laundry. You have
the opportunity to exercise. The biggest issue I think is this. So pretending 
this. You steal a bag of cash or find a bag of cash with Five million dollars 
in a bag.

You get stupid and you get caught. You go to prison for five years. Awesome
you get out and a few days later you go dig up your bag of cash. Life is good
again. Now go back to the first day or prison. If you are white or you are black.
The prison guard takes you to your cell. You walk in and the metal doors slam shut.

You toss your prison crap on the floor. You stand there and introduce yourself
to your cell mate. He tells you this. I think your cute. The first night everything 
is fine. The next night he attacks you and beats you up. The next night the
same. The next night he rapes you. A week later he trades your ass to someone
for a pack of cigarettes. It isn't about the time it is the life.

This spring buy and lawn mower and mow lawns and make a decent living. 
Get a job unloading trucks.  This winter all you need is a snow shovel and 
dig out driveways. Lots of ways to make money with no education. Hard 
work and stay away from drugs.
Go into a thrift store and use a cell phone and look everything up on Ebay.
If the thrift store item is tested good and the item sells for $20.00 and you 
can buy it for $5.00 then buy it. List it ship it and make money.
Grow up and realize that life is short. 
Working at a job paying taxes for 35 years will get you a social security 
check of at least $2,000 a month.
Be kind to others and not only earn money but save it as well. Begin living
a good life.

I promise this to you.
Anyone you knew in high school, grown up with or 
attended college with, smoked weed with or sat next to in a bar. You 
will not talk to them in ten years. No one in a gang will be associated 
with you in twenty years. It just will not happen. 

No one cares about you more than you.

Stay away from anyone that isn't good at heart.
Stay away from people that would hurt someone else.
Stay away from drugs.
Stay away from robbers and thieves.

Help other people and don't expect anything for it.
thank you

Trump Demonstrators 2016

I'd would ask the demonstrators if they voted.
If they didn't then they should just accept the results because not
only do black and white lives matter but one vote counts as well.

They is 231 registered voters in the United States of America.
90 million did not vote. That is a lot of singles votes that did not
happen. Link.  A little more about the statistics. Link.

The top three reasons registered voters did not vote.
Too busy conflicting schedule. 17.5% 
Disability or illness 14.9%
Not interested. 13.4%
These people could have registered for early voting by US mail.
These people could have early voted. LINK

I certainly hope all the protestors voted otherwise they should 
just go home and be silent like they did when they should have cast their vote.

Thank you

Cancelling a cell phone service Read this

Well I made an error. I have three cell phones. I canceled one cell phone and the number went away as well. I just did it one day on a whim. I could not justify paying for an additional line if I do not use it that much. I use it primarily for a hotspot and yes it has different email addresses on it.

I failed to change or add a alternate phone number and or an alternate email address to this Yahoo account. So back to Yahoo they noticed i'm using a different ip address to access my email. Oh NO Yahoo security thinks. Fraud. So now I can not access the account. I get a message that shows a cell phone and it sends a text to outer space. The text code I can't get. The help pages state click here to add or modify the alternate information but then the system brings up the text a code to your cell phone page. I feel somewhat encouraged but then bam I can't do anything. 

Oddly enough I can access Ebay and or Paypal and other websites but not Yahoo.
thank you

Federal Government Wastes Money

This link will just amaze you at some of the wasteful spending by the United States Federal Government. Politicians typically or generally don't care about the money they spend. They all have budgets in their area's and they just take advantage of it. Click these words to zoom elsewhere.

I believe the United States Federal Government needs to be run like a business. They tax us then piss away the money.  Trmp winning over Clinton was a shocker. Thank the blue collar workers and the millennials not the older citizens.

Illegal immigration

People living in the United States illegally or not registered are the ones that are killing the resources we the citizens are paying for. They do not have valid drivers licenses and no vehicle insurance. They're children go to public schools funded by the hard working citizens of the United States of America. I think that there should be a way for those living here and are not registered and do not have a Visa or green card should get a 90 day window to sign up. Low income earning non registered people living here are killing our economy. I would ask that the Federal Government allow illegals to go and sign up at a local city office. Finger prints and give them a temporary green card. They then need a sponsor to place a bond on them then they are on probation. Typically people do not get arrested so if they get arrested for anything they should be booted out the United States. Once the 90 day window passes any illegal immigrants are found must leave. We the United States must lock down our borders.

My blog my opinion.

Will You Have Enough Savings at Retirement?

Retirement is probably the most expensive thing you’ll ever pay for. Because of that, it may be difficult to put the amount you may need to save into perspective.

How Much Would You Be Able to Withdraw Each Year?

For simplicity, let’s assume: You’re ready to retire today and plan to have your 
retirement savings last 25 years. You’ve moved your savings into more conservative 
investments that you believe are appropriate for retirement. The investments will 
provide a constant 6% annual return. 
You’ll withdraw the same amount at the end of each year. 
Keep in mind that these examples don’t include factors such as inflation and 
volatility  that can have a big impact on your purchasing power and account 
value. For example, 
if inflation were 4% a year, a withdrawal of $31,291 25 years from now would 
only be worth $11,738 in today’s dollars. Investment losses would decrease 
your account’s  growth potential in subsequent years. To account for these 
factors, you might need to save even more.
Thank you

Honda CRV Gas Mileage

I bought a 2014 Honda CRV EX FWD a few weeks ago. I had a 2008 Honda Civic EXL Sedan. I drive about 500 miles a week on the interstate. The Civic keeping it below 2000 RPM related to below 61 MPH got 38 miles per gallon. Going faster than 2000 RPM which is faster than 61 MPH got me a solid 28 MPG.

I drive about 20 miles per day around in the city. I average 32 MPG in town driving. I coast up to a stop sign and signals that are red. I do not so to say step on the gas. I maintain a speed at about 45 MPH if the law permits it. I am not a hazard or causing any delays driving this way. I am keeping up with traffic. Once the red light turns green I zoom to the speed limit then again maintain the posted speed.

Why? Checking the instant fuel mileage a few times reviews this. If you get 5 MPG gallon for a distance of 200 feet then once up to speed you just stay at that steady speed. If you get 18 MPG over a 600 of feet. You will be getting 38 MPG sooner thus over the mile less the 200 feet. It is early and my distances are off.

5 MPG over 200 feet then 40MPG over the balance of the mile
15 MPG over a distance of 400 feet then 40MPG over the balance of the mile

Crap. If you zoom to the speed limit you will get an overall better MPG vs slowly creeping up to the speed limit. It is true try it. I had always thought creeping up to 60 MPH would get me better MPG but it doesn't. Accelerating up to 63 MPH faster then overall for the balance of the first mile you'll average will be much higher. Difference will be 15 MPG vs 25 MPG.

The 2014 Honda CRV EX for the past week has gotten me about 28 MPG. So where is the sweet spot on the CRV? The civic is gone and I have been checking the CRV mileage at various speeds.

Cruise control on or off air conditioner on or off on the interstate a whopping 44.4 MPG keeping the RPM below 2,000 which relates to 63 MPH.

I get up to speed fairly fast then I merely maintain the speed. I try not to do anything like accelerate up or down. I keep my foot on the pedal and just maintain the 63 MPH.

Update:2-16-18-I haven't reset my mileage gauge on settings B for a while. 
12,562 miles I have gotten 25.2 MPG.

I always say I have more time then money so I drive this way all the time.

Thank you
