Renew US Passport by Mail

This was news to me when I visited the embassy 2 days ago. There are eligibility requirements, of course. If you meet them, send the passport by mail or courier, then: Full-validity passports are printed in the United States and mailed to the embassy or consulate that processed the renewal. Once it ...

Re: Movies on DVD

Glad you enjoyed it. Not sure where my head was at when I posted that as I got both the name of the movie wrong and the genre. You're right in it's a damn good thriller, not horror! :oops: :D Or maybe I got it wrong. Or maybe we both got it wrong. YIFY describes it as "Action / Horror / Sci-Fi / Th...

Re: Global ATM attack anticipated

'Cashout' is the industry's name for such an attack. One happened in India last weekend. They're always done at banks with gaping security flaws, which are usually the smaller ones. They virtually always happen on weekends because it takes longer for the bank to realize what's happening. They always...

My experience is that it is one of those things that differ from officer to officer and day to day.

Re: Movies on DVD

Just watched this really excellent Sci-fi/horror. Though a much-used storyline of tech vs humans, this really carries it well. If the movies Robocop and Transcendence had a baby, this would probably be it. Awesome (and slightly grotesque) fight scenes led by the excellent Logan Marshall-Green. This...

Get a Schwab account and never pay for transfers again.
Every source I've read said you must be in the US to open an account. IIRC you also need a current proof of address such as a utility bill.
