    She's running a road bike and it had shimanu 105 pedals.

    [–] Nokia Removing the Pulse Wave Velocity Feature from Their Body Cardio Scales lilmanmgf 2 points ago in technology

    This is pretty messed up considering it's the main reason I purchased the body cardio over the the body+ and spent $80 more. It's pretty messed up that companies can just remove features from products I already purchased.

    [–] Understanding Tax Options When Selling lilmanmgf 1 points ago in investing

    Ok so if I sell all of my shares it doesn't matter what I choose? It will use the purchase value and time for each individual purchase?

    [–] Understanding Tax Options When Selling lilmanmgf 1 points ago in investing

    The issue is I've been doing dividend reinvestment, so normally once a quarter it buys new shares. All but three of my buy lots are then over a year old, but the three newer ones are for very small share values.

    [–] Roth IRA vs Taxable Index Fund Account lilmanmgf 1 points ago in personalfinance

    I guess I saw it as more savings in the short term for the house, but I might be able to get some financial advantage over a standard taxable fund. My housing situation is also is not set in stone, it may be further out if I end up moving. Because of that I wanted to put it in stocks for better growth.

    [–] Traveling to Canada with a recently expired passport lilmanmgf 1 points ago in travel

    Oh so now I'm a lazy American? You're making a lot of assumptions on my thought process and actions. My morning events and thought process progressed as follows:

    7AM: Grab passport from the same, notices expiration date was one month past

    7AM-8AM: Search Reddit and the internet for information regarding a similar scenario. Found a lot of conflicting information. Many of the stories were for passports that had been expired for 1+ years, vs 30 days.

    8AM: Post topic on reddit. Hope someone may have more applicable/recent experience that may shed light on this topic. This is extremely last minute since I am traveling at 12PM and time is extremely short.

    9AM-10AM: Call US and Canada Border Control now that they are actually open. Gain information from Border Control on both sides that looks indicates I will be ok.

    I made a mistake. It's been a while since I last used my passport and I wasn't aware it expired. This left me with a 5 hour window to determine what options were. I investigate for a while and reached out for help on Reddit after I was unable to find scenarios close enough to my own.

    But they accept alternative forms of identification for entry into Canada, such as a birth certificate.

    And I juts got off the phone with US Border Patrol who told me that the expired passport was still proof of citizenship and I would be fine. It would seem that things aren't as black and white as you are making it sound.

    What is the point of even responding like this when it doesn't help anybody. I already searched and found a lot of conflicting information. I know the official message is that you need a passport, but I also know that people go back and forth without it. I was looking for some people with recent experiences that might indicate I would be ok to proceed. I called the Canadian Border Services and was told I only need a birth certificate and a drivers license. I've tried to call the US Border Crossing, and all I can get is a robotic message.

    [–] Traveling to Canada with a recently expired passport lilmanmgf 1 points ago in travel

    I just realized this the day I am supposed to leave, so there is no time to renew. Many of the past topics are old, and I'm thinking this is something that is subject to change with time.

    [–] Simple 3D Printed Grommet to Eliminate Signal Noise With Carbon Fiber Frame lilmanmgf 2 points ago in Multicopter

    Worst case I can always go back to this method. It seemed to work pretty well, but the pigtail I had was too long and got bunched up.
