Time to jump ship? - domain names edition

I have a domain that's expiring soon (less than 2 weeks) and I want to get it renewed. It's managed at GoDaddy, and has been since I bought it. However, with the price they're asking for renewal, I'm wondering if I can't get a better deal elsewhere. Would it be better to switch, and if so, which company would you recommend? As always, unique white precipitation inside. [more inside]

FTP like solution - but only transfer during the night hours

I'd like to take my older mac mini (10.7.5 is the max OS) and use it for some select file sharing with my family. Ideally, I'd like them to be able to see the file list from several hard drives, mark a file as something they'd like to transfer, and have it transfer only during the evening hours. [more inside]

Reliable yet cheaper ways to transfer money from US to Korea?

Looking for recommendations for currency transfer services that are reputable, reliable and won't tack on as many fees as an international bank wire. This is for sending from a personal bank account in the US (from USD) and transferring to a personal bank account in South Korea (to KRW). In case it makes a difference, I'm interested in both of these scenarios: [more inside]

Home Power Generator Question

Every summer and winter, random weather related power failures (as well as those caused by people knocking down power poles - it's rural with lots of winding roads) leave the house without power for hours to days. So I'm thinking about getting a Generac 8kw gas-powered portable with a manual transfer switch. A Generac 10kw propane powered installed with an automatic transfer switch is at least 6 six times more expensive and I don't see much of an extra benefit. [more inside]

Stay or go: Interview Edition

I applied for a lateral transfer, but would miss significant aspects of my existing job if I took it. I waffled over email after being offered an interview, first declining due to personal reasons and then saying the personal issue was resolved. I'm having trouble parsing what would make me happiest and what professional ramifications would be for either choice (in particular, how insane I look now and/or will look if I back out again now or after the interview.) Thank you in advance and I really appreciate any help I can get. [more inside]

What is the best way to transfer money from Mexico to the US?

MigrationFilter: PC and Mac can't see each other over Ethernet cable

I finally broke down and got a Macbook Air today. In trying to use Mac Migration Assistant to move files from my PC to the Mac, I went with best practices and connected them with an Ethernet cable. They can't seem to see each other. They see each other fine on my wifi (estimated wifi transfer time: 89 hrs), and both the Ethernet cable and the Mac Ethernet converter are working. Hope me, hive mind!

Recent photos hidden on Samsung Galaxy S4 during file search

I have a Galaxy S4 and I generally transfer pics from it to a Windows 8.1 PC via USB, connecting up the Samsung as an external hard drive, navigating down to the DCIM folder on the camera's external SD card, then dragging & dropping. Recently, all my photos more recent than Feb 2014 are not visible via Windows Explorer even though the camera itself shows that those photos are indeed stored in the same folder on the external SD card that has all the pre-Feb photos. What gives? Are they hidden form view somehow?

Transfer time in LAX: Flying from Canada to Japan

We are flying from Toronto to LAX (on Air Canada) and then LAX to Tokyo (on United), with a layover in LAX of 95 minutes. Based on my research, I assume we will be passing from Terminal 2 to 7. We're both Canadian citizens, if that matters. I haven't seen anything definitive on this particular transfer, but based on other AskMefi LAX answers it seems a little unlikely this will work... Is that enough time?

How can I efficiently harvest Google's entire cache of my website?

I stupidly let a web hosting account expire without backing up and transferring my site to my new server. I'm talking to the host to try to get access to my data (fingers crossed), but in case that does not work out: Is there a way to efficiently harvest Google's entire cache of a specific domain? Something else I should consider? I would like to act fast on this, and I don't have any programming/tech-fu skills.

Transferring foreign currency in China

Asking on behalf of two friends in China: one (not a Chinese national) wants to loan a large amount of money to the other (who is Chinese). The problem is the foreigner's account (even though it's a Chinese bank account) is in Euros. They tried to go to the local (Chinese) bank and do a transfer, but were told that it was illegal to transfer a foreign currency to a Chinese person like that, and that they would have to first convert all the money to RMB and then could give it to him, but that gets pretty expensive with exchange rates and fees, since this is apparently a pretty large sum. So the question is: What's the best way for a foreigner to transfer his money, in euros, at his Chinese bank account to the Chinese bank account of a Chinese national? Is there any bank card or service which the Chinese national can apply for to make it easier?

Transfer from a private school at the beginning of next school year

Dear Interlocutors from Ask MetaFilter, Please help me understand if the sequence of the steps I figure out to transfer my son Edoardo from a private school in New York State to the New York City public school system is correct. Unfortunately the staff of the High School Enrollment Office is very laconic. 1) I have Edoardo's current school complete the "Out of City Request Form" 2) I fax the HS Enrollment Office 2 documents as a proof we are residents in New York City 3) I enter my high school choices in priority order on my "Round 2 and New Schools Choice Form".

Can an intermediary bank in a transaction apply currency conversion?

I have a USD account in the UK and received an incoming amount in GBP. However, it was supposed to be sent in USD from the US (so that's a cross-border transfer). The sender also claims that the amount was sent in USD. My bank claims and also the statement tells that the money came in GBP. Because of the double conversion (usd->gbp->usd) I received significantly less than if it happened without any conversion. My only idea at the moment is that an intermediary bank applied a conversion.. Can this happen? How can I clearly find out what happened? How to avoid this from happening again? Thanks for your suggestions!
