Sunday’s Sites – No Theme for Me Edition

Every Sunday I try to highlight four or five articles which I found particularly insightful during the previous week. Usually I take the time to come up with a theme and group together articles along that theme. I spent half of the day yesterday floating around the lake on my boat so with that carefree attitude I present the no theme for me edition of Sunday’s Sites:

Mrs. Micah presented a topic near and dear to my heart this week. She has a great article on how to revamp an old pc or laptop by installing Ubuntu linux. Linux is a great operating system that provides you with most of the functionality you need day to day, there are some drawbacks for you windows folks but check out the article, I really enjoyed it.

Have you ever thought about making extra money by being a phone sex operator late at night? I haven’t but My Money Blog discusses the topic this week. It really was interesting to learn a little about how it works, I still don’t think I could actually do it though.

Are you married? Jeff Rose, CFP thinks you should know if your Financial planner is. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this article and the subsequent free for all on Jeff for putting that question on the list, you should. He did a guest post at Get Rich Slowly that really stirred up some emotions.

Ever wonder what it is like to be a tax preparer during tax season? Baker at Man Vs. Debt gives you a bit of an idea and provides some funny stories about the people who come to get their taxes done.  My favorite was the newspaper delivery guy who delivered part time and wanted to claim 114,000 miles of driving for his job.

Glad you liked the article! I’ve found Linux really easy to use. Plus, I can get more done if I’m using two computers, and Windows on the old computer was much too slow to use it unless I absolutely have to, like Photoshop. 🙂

I have heard of people actually running Photoshop in Linux using Wine. May be worth looking into if Photoshop is the only thing you are using Windows for. You can read more about it here: http://wiki.winehq.org/AdobePhotoshop
