After many months of waiting, the wireless guitar for the XBox 360 version of Guitar Hero is finally available. I saw them on eBay a few weeks ago but I wasn’t able to track any down from my suppliers or the local stores around here. They’re getting more common though, someone said Zellers […]

Everything we buy these days is either made of plastic, packaged in plastic or at least gets put in a plastic bag to carry it home in. So even though recycling is a pain in the butt (here we have to sort one bag of paper products and another of plastics, along with regular […]

Regular Jobs, MLM, Pyramids, Reverse Funnels Etc.

Posted on March 30, 2008 - Filed Under Business, Marketing | 1 Comment

I had someone leave a comment on my Reverse Funnel System post saying that even a regular job is just a pyramid scheme because the people on bottom make less money. Sure, I can see his point in a very vague way. There’s the owner on top who generally makes the most money, […]

Basement Junk

Posted on March 28, 2008 - Filed Under Business | Leave a Comment

Anyone need some kitchen faucets? I just tossed some out this morning while cleaning the basement a bit here. They were old though, most likely from when they did renovations here after the flower shop closed down a year ago. There was still a bunch of crap down there, the old electrical […]

Beer pong?

Posted on March 27, 2008 - Filed Under Entertainment | Leave a Comment

Can’t say as I’ve ever heard of this particular drinking game before, but beer pong must be somewhat popular at least among the college and spring break crowds. Beer Pong tables are available in a variety of sizes including 8ft long tournament editions. That’s right, tournament size tables for a drinking game. […]

Capacitors

Posted on March 26, 2008 - Filed Under computer repair, Electronics | Leave a Comment

I spent half the day today de-soldering capacitors and taking them off old motherboards. Usually ancient crappy boards (socket 7/370/A) that are no longer working.

Posted on March 21, 2008 - Filed Under Electronics, gadgets, review | 1 Comment

Ever fumble around in a dark car for something you dropped on the floor? The dome light is pretty much useless in cases like this and I never remember to leave a flashlight in the car for emergencies. This little gadget from LighterLight.Com is a great idea, a small LED flashlight that plugs […]
