    cashflow 101

    Hi Geoff, I have a feeling you may have been charged GST as I was. This may be due to the way the automatic payment is setup. The online payment form is at https://secure.webenz.co.nz/hpc/board_game.php The current price is $222.18 plus GST & Freight. According to the e-mail offer...

    cashflow 101

    Hi Herman, I work most weekends so haven't played the game with other people yet. I have a weekend off later this month and will try and organise a game with some 101 players to get a comparison between 101 and Hybrid. There's no doubt about the educational quality of the game but I need...

    cashflow 101

    I recently received a promotion via e-mail from Hybrid Consultancy saying that the Hybrid game is discounted by $100 NZ for the month of July. It also said postage to Australia was $50 NZ and $90 NZ for other International locations. As yet, I'm unaware of an Australian distributor. If ordering...

    Changing a lightbulb

    Thanks Jim and Kristine, I'm not a big fan of the extension pole idea either. As a tenant, it seems too fiddly. If the tenant is not happy to use the extension pole then I'll suggest the long-life fluro with a screw fitting which is what I have in the lounge of the flat I'm currently renting...

    Changing a lightbulb

    Thanks everyone for all the helpful advice. It's not a sexy issue so wasn't expecting many replies. That's great. Here is my last exchange with the PM: Hi Tania, I understand the problem but I'm uncertain from your e-mail who is financially responsible for getting the lightbulb changed by...

    Changing a lightbulb

    Thanks for the wall mounted suggestion HA. I agree that something like that needs to be done so that the tenants are able to safely change the globe themselves. I'll discuss this idea with the PM. Regards, Mike

    Changing a lightbulb

    Thanks Will, I've heard of those but if the bulb is encased inside a diffusion cover of some kind it won't be possible. My thinking is that since the light bulb is difficult to reach the safest option is to have the handyman change the bulb. Should I bear the full cost or can I ask the tenant...

    Changing a lightbulb

    Hi, Does anybody have any views on this...? My property manager e-mailed me this recently. Just a quick email - we did a maintenance inspection at your property yesterday and the tenants reported that the light in the stairwell isn't working. It is the tenants responsibility to change...

    Thanks for that great reply, Sim. I obviously need to do some more homework on scanned documents. The scanner (Hewlett Packard) compression software does pickup 3 different image types in the scanned document ie B&W drawings, B&W or colour photographs and text BUT not when I select an area of...

    Hi Sim, Great charts! Now we can see who all the hard workers are. I notice your images are in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format and each graphic less than 4KB in file size. In your opinion, would you choose different formats for different types of images? Would you use PNG for a...

    cashflow 101

    Hi Folks, As promised, I've created a PDF containing the first 12 pages of the 23 page Hybrid Real Estate board game. I scanned each page to a GIF file first. Three pages had to be reconverted to JPG because of their file size. Then I created the PDF using pdf995 as suggested by Sunstone in a...
