This morning my wife woke me up to tell me that her desktop computer wouldn't turn over.  She pushed the button, and nothin'... It is old, and although it has had a little bit of updating, it isn't going to get much money input because it just isn't worth it.  We knew it was likely a power supply...

A few days ago I wrote about how the purchase offering process is having issues… issues that are especially apparent on Bank-Owned Properties (we call them REOs).
