So budget has been a bit tight these days and I realized I'm losing a-lot of money into cell phone and internet bills. I have the nagging suspicion that I'm paying more than others.
Do people know any tactics to use to bring down internet and cell-phone rates?
I've tried threatening to quit before, with some success, but I think they have that on record now and it seems to work less well. [more inside]

I think I figured out how to effectively monetize the Internet for old media (newspapers, magazines, television). I also have a few ideas how this would work for new media as well. Who do I tell? Who don't I tell? What format should my proposal take? How do I make a little scratch out of it for myself? [more inside]

I want to archive my personal documents like birth certificate, mark sheet, bond, bank statement details etc by scanning them and storing in the internet.
I thought i will scan and store them in my email accounts.
(like yahoo etc)
However i am not sure, whether storing those documents
in yahoo email etc is safe.
Can some one suggest a good safe option, where i can
scan documents and put them in internet not accessible
Are there any free encryption software which encrypts
the documents and stores them.
It is okay, if some budget software is also available,
instead of freeware.

Where can I find "low-tech" jobs online?
We just had a baby and so my wife has to stay at home and take care of him.
However, she still has some free time and she would like to do some stuff from home. She's a medical doctor with a bit of IT experience (mostly as a user, though). So I was thinking to find her some work online, maybe entering some data or as a translator (she speaks English and German, German is her mother-tongue) or maybe other "low-tech" jobs like this...
So do you have any idea where can I find such jobs?

After reading hundreds of blogs (Why, oh why?), I’ve come to the conclusion that a big number of the people who write about their own financial situation, explicitly or indirectly tell of how broke they are; Like Jim Anchower
, many describe low wages and bad jobs, job losses and unemployment, crashing bills, life in apartments with roommates who don’t care and having a hard time paying rents & bills, etc. I understand that the real median household income in 2003
was $43,318 (US), and I know that times are hard for most people. Still, is the average blogger poorer than the average person?
