Re: Noob questions about Credit Score

Second, if you need wheels to get back/forth to your job, taking out a car loan makes sense: but *only* if you purchase wheels primarily for transport, not for ego. Buy the Toyota, not the BMW. Don't borrow a nickel more than you truly *need*. lol definitely. used Toyota CAmry :D or Honda accord is...

Re: Noob questions about Credit Score

The question you need to answer is how much credit do you now have and have you made payments on time. every time your credit is run it dies lower your score but only by a point or 2 unless there are many many applications for credit in a short period of time it really shouldn't affect you that bad...

Re: About to order 48v15ah li-ncm from BMSBattery, should I?

if you are new. you should reconsider. if you have no experience with batteries and need to ask others what to do, you should not be building a battery out of the little lipo cans which you have to solder to each other. you should just buy a battery off ebay and use it until you can learn how to wo...

Here's a picture of the first major test of the new battery build, with all the soldering and wiring done. Yea, that's my trophy, an aluminium camp plate I use during soldering operations. Haahahaa! Was putting a spot of solder on the bullet connectors as the crimping just wasn't strong enough to p...

Re: About to order 48v15ah li-ncm from BMSBattery, should I?

Based on the discussions here, I've decided that it is not worth my hard earned $500 to risk buying their decent high capacity/discharge LI-NMC pack. I've decided to build my own pack now using Samsung 25Rs. plz make a thread on this, i'd like to see how you do it and the total price of the home ma...

Yes, the computers I'm backing up to are on all the time. When I mirror, I'm only mirroring the data, not the operating system. With any sensible mirroring system, you can choose what to mirror. So if the main computer goes toes-up, I can just start using the mirror. On the issue of "when you delet...

It's a hard problem to solve because it's a people problem. AS many people with common sense out there, there are more people without them, and even more selfish.
