To start with I want to thank Merlin, James16 and MB for all of your insight and expertise. I'm a really big newb and have hardly scraped the surface of gambling, but I really do see it as a workable solution to becoming a stay-at-home father, now my job just lets me be home 36 hours at a time at most and I'm missing precious minutes with my little family. My question is this, would it be smart to blend the egies of and MB as well as use a calculator, or would this only be waisting time?
