I run a small Mac support business in NYC. Most of my clients are small businesses, and are repeat customers going back several years. Customer loyalty is high. Expenses are low. Profits are reliable. Physical assets are few. I'd like to sell it, but I can't figure out if it's an asset — or if I'm the asset. [more inside]
Searching for a hybrid mechanic in NYC. I asked this a few years ago, but I never found a satisfying answer, and I'm hoping someone has some new ideas. [more inside]
I was invited to a Passover seder tomorrow night with the request that each guest bring a personal bottle of wine for our own individual enjoyment. There was also this: "I would appreciate if your wine was not produced in occupied Palestinian territory." In the spirit of being difficult, I'd like to locate a wine produced in a state with an ongoing territorial dispute. Can you recommend one? [more inside]
Sought: a safe deposit box in Brooklyn or Manhattan. Difficulties: I don't want it to cost me $80/year (as my bank, Chase, does), and I don't want to have to sign up for a checking account / other relationship with the bank (though I may be flexible about this if the bank offers absotively-free checking). Now, to make it more annoying, I only want a box at an attractive bank. Also, the easier it is for me to give a key to a deputy/agent, the happier I will be. [more inside]
Today is my birthday. No congratulations needed or sought; the gift of your answer to my query will suffice! How can I monetize this? Yes, I'm looking for places in New York City that will give me a free ice cream (or something else) in exchange for a quick glance at my ID. Preferably places that don't require me to be under 12. Thanks!
How can I find out where OLPC prototypes will be demo'd nearby? I always hear about the Linux user group meetups, the talks at Harvard and MIT, and the conferences about a week after the fact. (I guess that's how they stay so small.) I'm looking for events in NYC, Boston, or elsewhere in that radius. So my specific question is are there any such events coming up in the northeast, and my general question is how can I better search for such events? An offshoot question: any regional mefi'ers currently holding an xo prototype? If so, I'd like to get in touch to ask a couple questions for a research project. Thanks.
