Some slimeball mother f-er stole my CC number and tried to buy stuff. Card I've had for 20 years, and now I have to remember a new number because of some dirtbag.

Identity theft and fraud should be capital offenses.

I'm almost back on the grid!! lol

5 days of no cell service or internet was tough.

The AT&T tech just left and I now have my HD tv and internet back!. I have the microcell activating as we speak, so I should have cell service in another hour or 2.

Fri-Sun we did 18 hour days and yesterday was like a 14 hour day. I'm physically and mentally so ------- tired, but ALL of our ---- is moved, in place and functional.

This new place is ****! Everything is new from the drywall and wood floors to the HVAC system and the roof. Sitting on just short of 2 acres, we really lucked out getting into this place.

Hmm. Got an offer to swap the MOAB Miata for a 1997 STO Miata plus cash. He'd take the car and the hardtop, let me keep the wheels. And he has a Torsen to swap into the STO.

Hmm.

Fracking amazon gave in and started collecting sales tax in Texas now. That means I can't order this $830 home audio receiver without paying another $60 in taxes. Now, the $4 overnight shipping MIGHT make it worth it, but I don't know...

They didn't "give in," Amazon is one of the primary supporters of the requirement to collect state sales tax for online purchases.

It should be obvious why. Amazon has warehouses in many states, and has thus always been required to charge sales tax to customers in certain states. In order to provide quicker order fulfillment, they continue to build more warehouses throughout the country, thus increasing the number of states in which they must charge sales tax.

Thus, in order to level the playing field and ensure that other, smaller companies do not gain a price advantage over them, it is in Amazon's best interest to ensure that all online retailers must charge sales tax for all orders.

For what it's worth, you have always technically been required to remit sales tax for mail-order purchases, even before the internet. Here's a link to Texas' FAQ on Use Tax: FAQ: Texas Sales Tax
1. What "purchases" are subject to use tax?
A purchase may be subject to use tax for a number of reasons. The most common reasons are:
(...)
You used property purchased from an out-of-state retailer. In general, if you purchase a taxable item from an out-of-state retailer without paying Texas tax and use the property in Texas the purchase is subject to use tax and must be reported. If you paid Texas use tax to such a retailer, you are not required to report the tax. That retailer must provide you with a receipt showing, among other things, the amount of use tax collected. You should retain a copy of the receipt showing you paid Texas tax.

3. Do I owe tax on goods purchased via mail-order catalogs or Internet merchandise?
Yes. A seller who uses catalogs or the Internet to sell goods is treated the same as any other seller of taxable items. If you purchase merchandise through a catalog or the Internet from a seller located in Texas, you owe Texas sales tax on the purchase. If you purchase merchandise through a catalog or the Internet from a seller located outside of Texas and use the taxable item in Texas, then you owe Texas use tax on the purchase. An out-of-state mail-order company or an Internet company may hold a Texas Sales and Use tax permit and collect Texas tax. If the out-of-state seller does not have a Texas permit or does not collect Texas use tax, the use tax is due and payable by the purchaser.

4. How do I report a use tax liability?
If you have a sales tax permit and bought goods or services that are subject to use tax, you must report your purchase on your Texas sales tax return on line 3, "taxable purchases."
If you do not hold a Texas sales and use tax permit and you bought items on which the seller did not collect Texas sales or use tax, you must report your purchases on form 01-156, Texas Use Tax.
If you paid another state's sales or use tax on the merchandise, you can take a credit for the amount of sales tax paid to the other state.

amazon is the worst website ever developed if you want to search for a product without knowing exactly what it is you are looking for to begin with.

in short, the government of each state not previously collecting use tax just got a phat payday.

Hooray for day 3 of trying to shake off what I think is walking pneumonia. Have not gone to work this week and am getting restless to get back to normal. On the positive side, I have not had a cig since last sat. and I plan on keeping it this way.

Cool. Stay off the cigs. It will get better, although it takes a while.

There's some top-40 song that's being played in heavy rotation right now, which has a chorus where they repeat some heavily distorted four-syllable phrase over and over. I think they're saying "Rumor Has It", but I always hear it as "Uber-Heavy"
