Thank for the info.

You could not lock in your mortgage rate?

Use a pro with a big scanner to scan LP covers abd such. Even blueprints can be scanned these days. That pro pays for the capital costs, and the service charge is less than you buying one.

11 On the eleventh hand, my mortgage payments have gone up 13.5% and I haven't finished moving yet.

NEVER buy an 'adjustable' mortgage.

Also, never close the barn doors after all the horses have fled.

Mourning, y'all.

12 5 I thought if you locked in an interest rate and price on a house, the house note didn't go up? Are there only variable rate mortgages available now in AU?

Fixed rate mortgages exist here, but they factor in the expected rate increases. Since everyone knew rates were going to go up, and banks are averse to giving away their money (at least to us plebs), the interest rate on a fixed mortgage was about double the variable rate when I got my loan.

Yeah, that's the plan. Even easier, I have a mortgage offset account - money I deposit there automatically gets deducted from the interest calculation, but it's not locked up.

It doesn't pay interest, but the interest it saves doesn't count as income so you don't pay tax on it.

An economist on NewsMax a couple days ago said that the traditional method of fighting inflation is to raise interest rates higher than the rate of inflation. I'm not sure how high the inflation rate is in the land down under, but I'd guess between six and eight percent.

Adjustable rate mortgages suck. Mine actually went to nearly 17%. I could have continued to pay a fixed payment, but negative amortization kicked in.

83
Taking a long term view of real estate; it has an annual appreciation rate of about 4% - and you have to live somewhere. View the cost of the mortgage against the cost of renting, now assume the real estate appreciates 4% every year. You'll see on a long enough timeline you'll come way ahead. Short term fluctuations in markets and interest rates will however abound.

Good morning, Sir.

I understand. I joined at the upper age limit for URL. Growing up as a Navy junior, the US of A was my team. The Star Spangled Banner was my theme song. I served proudly.

Heck, the Soviet Union fell apart after I got in and was deployed. *Runs hand down side of head, front to back *

But now? I would counsel students to do something besides join the US Military.

114 86 No 30 year fixed rate mortgages in Australia like here. They’re all variable of some kind. US banks make it work through hedging games. I never looked into why Aussie banks don’t.

Australian banks are notoriously conservative. When the global financial crisis hit we came through intact because they don't play those game, but as you say, 30 year fixed rate mortgages don't exist.

You can get a 10 year fixed rate mortgage, but they factor in a year of monthly interest rate increases that you would pay in advance. A 10-year fixed loan that converted to variable rate after that would have added 70% to my monthly payments.

129 Prior to the "Great Depression" in the US mortgages were usually 50% down fixed rate 7 year notes, callable at any time.

That's why the "widow jenny losing the ranch" movie plots were so common in early movies. If someone wanted your property, if it was mortgaged they merely needed to pay off the note, and turn around and demand immediate payment. Many times people had to sell.

151 Pixy,

The easiest way to scan large formats is to do multiple scans and then use a Photo Stitching software which will automatically match the edges and combine the scans into one image. Then you just need to clean up and crop the resulting single file in a photo editor.

There are lots of software out there, many for free, and it’s much cheaper than buying a large format scanner.

197 194 Only thing I heard was his dad ran for mayor and got trounced. Could have set the nut off. Old man is bitter about the loss, takes it out on the family, blames the community. Nut kid thinks the community is at fault for his life being miserable at home, shoots up community.

The point being, as always, not much you can do if he isn't violent before he buys a gun. That's just a reality. Just like before we're going to focus on stopping nut jobs from getting guns instead of why we seem to be producing so many nut jobs.

199 197. Some of his fellow white rapper buddies say he was just a stoner who lost touch with reality. This is probably the case. But there was an anti flag on one of his accounts. A lot of people tuned in to those last night

200 197. Its a very dem area, I doubt he was bitter. And until yesterday he had multiple Twitter accounts all full of pride flags and dem follows.

201 Scanning LP covers: I pinned the cover to a wall, used my DSLR with long lens and tripod and shot the cover from about 10ft away. Came out looking great.

202 "Anyone know of a good solution for scanning largish physical media like LP cover art? A3 scanners aren't too expensive but are just slightly too small."

A camera on a tripod.

203 As noted above, DSLR on a tripod with a light box (they don’t have to be as expensive as they sound) will get very good results.

A prime lens will work best, but either way use a portrait focal length to minimize lens distortion. 85mm on an APS (full frame) sensor, or 135mm on an APS-C sensor. In the US there are a few places you can rent a lens you don’t have.

Alternatively, there are places that will do this sort of “scanning” for you.

204 RE: Scanning with phone.

Make a jig / frame to hold the documents and phone. Better than 'steady hand' unless you are cyborg killing machine able to hold teen boys from arm while also holding up a baby. And if you are, what's the point?

205 I hate Apps. I have a G-Shock with heart rate monitor function, but I only access half the functionality because the App was so bad. The permissions it wanted were ridiculous and unnecessary and it randomly wiped the setup and personalization already input.
I deleted it. Now if anything comes with an "App" to control and use it, I don't buy it.

206 I am making $92 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbour advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience mass freedom now that I'm my non-public boss.
That is what I do... www.salarycash1.com

207 I've had some problems with scanning large documents; the tips here are very helpful; thanks.

But the discussion does remind me that the invention of the CD killed what had become a minor art form: the LP album cover. A square foot is a lot of surface to fill - almost twice the size of magazine cover - and some artists filled those surfaces with some very interesting work. Digital technology is a great gain; but no great gain comes without at least some small loss.

208 Large scale scanning
I've done a lot of this, often to exact geometric dimensions. In order of accuracy and ease:
1) Good camera with a telephoto lens, photo taken at greatest distance possible to (mostly) fill the frame. You can use a mirror to double the distance. Do have a color strip in the field to correct lighting.
2) Flatbed scan pieces and manually stitch as different layers in photo-editing software. Set top layer to "difference", align to total black on the overlap, then lock the layer and return it to "normal". Easier than it sounds, even on gigapixel frames.
3) Good camera, normal lens, and use distortion-correcting software, ie. a plugin in PS or Lightroom.
4) Flatbed scan pieces and use stitching software - PTGui, AutoPano, Lightroom, etc.

209 "On the eleventh hand, my mortgage payments have gone up 13.5% and I haven't finished moving yet."

Fixed rate mortgages are you friend.

210 The CD killed (at least, severely wounded) LP album cover art.

AND, the MP3 killed (at least, severely wounded) the whole concept of "albums". Themed/concept collections like Red Headed Stranger or Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or Tommy or Joe's Garage or Dark Side of the Moon...

On the other hand, there are dedicated "channels" of video about funny animals or drunken young men's dangerous stunts or topless college girls, so it's not like " Art " is losing more than it gained. Is it?

Get that dude from "Xanadu" to paint an enlarged version by hand.

213 Pixy, they still sell handheld scanners. Those typically come with software to stitch the stripes together for a single scanned item with multiple passes.

214 "Anyone know of a good solution for scanning largish physical media like LP cover art? A3 scanners aren't too expensive but are just slightly too small."

Digital camera and a tripod for stability. Will take some fiddling to get it into frame, but once you get the first one right you can easily switch out the LPs without much further adjustment...
