Crazy Money: Meade 14" LX200-ACF

Meade Instruments Corporation - Meade 14" LX200-ACF (f/10) Advanced Coma-Free w/UHTC #1410-60-03

Darn telescope $6,999.00 :o, after looking over many telescopes for fun viewing for months, now it seems the one I like to purchase is the one i cannot afford (unless I win it in sweepstakes)

Last week I was so much into building a telescope from scratch that I almost thought about buying the concave mirrors and other items mentioned by some of the astronomy groups from amazon or best-buy and even went to best-buy and one more store "magnifiers and glass" only to realize this store is for senior citizen's eye glass lol.

Sadly the excitement to build quickly died out when I purchased a Emerson 50x100mm telescope for $7.99 with additional coupon of 5 dollars on 25 dollars purchase from cvs... in reality the telescope might have ended up under 4 dollars.

It's a good deal from what I was going to build by purchasing mirror's, tubes, duct tape and what not and it is sad because the darn 7.99 deal killed my dream to experience the joy of building a telescope, after watching so many YouTube videos on how to build a telescope.

From the telescope I purchase, i didn't really see much and I am feeling good now that, the one I was going to build would have turned up similar or most likely worse, so all in all the cvs deal may have saved me the migraines, money and lot of cursing lolz, but now the other issue is I am drooling over the most freakishly expensive telescopes out there...

If only if my prescription glass could have been auto convertible to telescope, life would be easier :)

Update 2: It seems if you have an external sync hard drive or storage, setup to keep two computers in sync with each other, the tracking.db3 file will get corrupted.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages. " Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows. " The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task. Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.

Questions that needs answers in writing that I already know

How do you put your experience in word's?  I know the same answers to the questions, that have helped people turn content into great blogs and website, and hear I am always struggling. "Questions that needs answers in writing that I already know" I wish many times that this should be easy, but it's always a bit further from my reach. Words or sentences that allude me. I wish to start a content website that is both a guide/help, and a source of passive income for me. With all that is going on, it will be a safety cushion to have a passive income.
