Web Page Monitoring for Sites Without Feeds

May 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Web sites that don’t provide an RSS feed with updates annoy the hell out of me. I mean, do they think we are still living in the 90’s or what? I have been searching for a solution that tracks changes to web pages and automatically notifies me of the change through email. I finally found [...]

May 27th, 2007 · 2 Comments

There are many websites that allow you to download ringtones, and most of them offer a free ringtone as soon as you sign up. So how do these companies make a profit?
Selling ringtones and call-back tones (which is what your callers hear when you haven’t picked up the phone yet) is a $2 Billion market [...]

The Vagaries of Online Dating

May 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Cupid had been kind to me, but the kindness was conditional. My “date” has left me high and dry after the first two dates, leaving me at the mercy of online dating services. I picked a couple based on their online dating reviews and much hilarity ensued Read on for details…
I had written [...]

‘Cause Work Sucks!

May 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Work Sucks is all kinds of awesome. Finally I found a type-in domain name that is actually what the domain name promises. Like they say, if you are a “go-getter” you’d have to go and browse somewhere. Work sucks is for slackers. They’ve got office videos, though I sort of wish they’d just cull the [...]

LG’s Prada Touchscreen Phone

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

The world’s first fully touchscreen Phone is not the iPhone (which I wrote about earlier). It is LG’s Prada phone.

Ooh, doesn’t it look sexy? The phone is limited to tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 with EDGE data, and so will not be too popular in the US from the get-go. It’s smaller than [...]

Delicious Pecan Pie

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I made some pecan pie yesterday – it turned out okay. Alright, I have to admit that the first time I got it totally wrong, and had burned cinders to prove it. This time it turned out fine. I don’t remember where I got the recipe from the last time, but this time I got [...]

I Found My Grey’s Anatomy Scrub

May 24th, 2007 · No Comments

So I watch Grey’s Anatomy – who doesn’t eh?
I thought it would be a nice surprise to buy my girl friend one of the scrubs that the doctors and trainees use as their uniform on the show. A lot of searching later, I found my nursing uniforms store online. They have two scrubs [...]

Free Stuff, Lots of Free Stuff

May 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

The sad part is that most of it is free samples. I can’t see what the catch is, since it looks like you have to apply for most of the free offers.

The website does have a lot of discount vouchers which seem to be absolutely free. I will be watching the site to see how [...]

LCD TVs Better Than Plasma TVs?

May 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I had written earlier about Plasma TVs, and thought maybe the decision was easy to make in favor of Plasma TVs, but now I am in doubt again. I read a whole bunch of LCD TV reviews today and they do seem to have their own advantages vis-a-vis Plasma TVs.
Here’s a few advantages LCD TVs [...]

May 17th, 2007 · No Comments

I am still trying to decide between an LCD TV and a Plasma TV, and so have been doing some research online. Did you know that Plasma TVs have been around since ‘92? Fujitsu invented them in 1992, and Plasma TVs have been available commerically since 1997. Wow, that is a long way going back!
