Can't. Investment places take forever in issuing 1099's. I got a corrected 1099 just over a week ago. What is the point in doing my taxes early and then re-doing them two or three times?
Not entirely true. The USA has some nuclear powered stuff in earth orbit. Some of TRANSIT navigation satellites (predecessor to GPS) were nuclear powered. More history, including notation of nuclear power sources at: http://www.astronautix.com/project/transit.htm.
I remember this because sometime in the mid 90's I used to listen to the old transit satellites on 150 MHz. It was pretty neat to hear ancient space history still out there and kicking. I like stuff abandoned in place.
We pay 3% flat rate across the board. No transaction fees. I've received a lot of processing fee quotes and never once have I seen one with rates like that.
The credit card companies have no security. They don't care either. It's not them that will foot the bill. As a consumer it is great that you can only get stuck for $50 of fradulent charges. But as a merchant you loose your merchandise and the fraudulent payment. You can receive authorization from the credit card company saying the transaction is good, but they can and do still take the money away from you.
I've had about a dozen cases of obviously fraudulent orders. The first few I would call the credit card company, report the suspicious card, etc. They did nothing. On one I found out the real owner of the card, called them, and they hadn't even been contacted by the credit card company. I had all of the details that the police would have needed to get the scammer and the credit card company wouldn't even take that information.
Now I just delete any order that looks unusual.
It's time to tell the truth. I am a 55 year-old man. My name is Andy Kaufman, and I live in New York City.
I am sincerely sorry to everyone for all my lies.

Here's a little something to excite you:
What a clever play on words I made

Long story short, I've had a good year. Great job, short commute, and dating again. I've become focused, but with great flexibility. I'm not sweating the big stuff, or the small stuff. The good stuff is in the middle.
May your holidays be commercial-free,
