  1. I've never had a problem buying a car. I don't know if this will work or not but I would fax to the dealer exactly the make, model, etc and what I would pay. I would ask them to sign and return. I suppose you could do the same with email but the point is the homework you do before you ever talk to a dealer. I'm not negotiating anything. If they don't like my offer, then I wait and go back - again - to one of many possible dealers. Eventually, it works out.,..to my number.
  2. The Varo Bank website states "Applying won’t impact your credit score." FYI. This may be a lie.
  3. A STAR on your Florida Driver License or Florida ID Card means you are Real ID compliant.
  4. What a mess this is. I worked on a software project that compressed data into a PDF 417 barcode. That's the one which is on the back of your DL (in most states). The reason it is there, instead of a potentially lower data storage capacity e.g. magnetic card stripe, is b/c the FedGov demanded that the states have the capacity to store a bunch of data in lieu of a separate Real Id Card. They did this by threatening to withhold FedGov highway/road funding from non-complying states. Some of the states wagged their noses at the FedGov by complying only in spirit i.e. they allowed the PDF 417 barcode to be unlaminated hence it rubs off. At some point, it's useless. So it looks like the play is back on.
  5. Been a member for a long time, created a new profile since my past here was in 2006ish. I post on many forums (Paracast, etc.) and have always promoted CB as an absolutely incredible source of credit intelligence. Thank you for just being.
