Skip. I had never heard of that job title or agency. So I googled it. You look like you’re probably a good father between all that parking garage exercising.

There are a lot of Ferrari’s in that garage.

Even if one was his, driving a Ferrari isn’t really so amazing when you have to work 14+ hours a day and never get to actually enjoy it. No one buys a Ferrari as a commuter car (ok I’m sure someone does).

Regarding retirement, the way I understood it the ideal was: 1. 401k match 2. Roth IRA 3. Max 401k 4. Other accounts (eg. HSA if you are elegible, potentially 529 for your kids, otherwise just investing in stuff) Is that right or am I forgetting something?

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
