Ask Slashdot: How Much Is a Fun Job Worth?
I was given effectively the same advice by a recruiter when faced with a choice like this, but its a little more refined: write both your choices on folded pieces of paper and stick them in a hat. Pull one out, and as you open it decide if you are pleased or unhappy you got that one. That instant emotional response is your subconscious chiming in and almost certainly giving you the right answer that your higher brain can not get to.
The Zuckerberg Tax
And that is exactly the problem with a wealth tax. Property taxes are wealth taxes, and your example shows the argument against them. The same issue applies even more commonly for a retiree.

I'll second this also. I can get a 15" Macbook (17" would probably fit), Canon 50D, 17-55 f2.8, 70-300, big flash, chargers, compact camera, mini tripod, and a bunch of other junk in.
It is small enough to carry-on and put under the seat in front of you as your "personal item", at least in the US.
I love it!

Are you proposing a catapult instead of a train? Might be faster...
Woman Claims Ubuntu Kept Her From Online Classes
It is easy without Windows - I just went through this with a Verizon DSL install. When I called and told them I was installing from a Mac, they talked me through logging directly into the modem from Safari, and setting it up through its web interface. No Windows required! (so is that the chicken, or the egg?)
I don't know why you think Google apps is business only, I use it for my personal email and it works great. You get all the benefits of gmail with your personal domain.
