Afk for a few days

Hey guys. I'm going to be gone for a few days and I'm going to miss you all so much! I'll post some goodies when I return.

While I'm away, here's something to hold you guys over: a list of some of the best sites for deals and bargains.

Woot: An wonderful site where if you don't act quickly to snag the deal, and I mean immediately, you'll miss out. Simply amazing. Here's a secret, is the friends and family version where you can get even better deals. Mmmm.

Groupon: Ever wanted to eat a $40 meal for only $20? Or go go-cart racing for free/half the price? I highly recommend you guys peruse this site before entering the town for your daily cuisine and hoopla.

Zappos: Who doesn't like shoes? This place is a godsend for shoe lovers.

And of course I can't forget the two enormous communities that have saved people, including myself, countless hundreds of dollars, Fatwallet and Slickdeals.

Fatwallet and Slickdeals will offer some of the best deals and bargains and deal discussions you'll ever be able to get your hands on.

Useful MAC programs!

So I decided to make a small list of Mac programs since I've already made a PC one.

Boot Camp: This is possibly the most powerful program a Mac can have. This baby will let you run Windows. Cheers!

 Clam Xav /// Intego Virus Barrier: ANTI VIRUS. If you're one of many who think Macs are immune to viral activity, I feel so damn sorry for you. The FACT is Macs are susceptible to viruses. If you don't believe me, GTFO!

Colloquy: IRC. Need I say more?

Namely: I, like many people, dislike Mac's folder system. It sucks. Balls. So instead of flipping through the folders, I just search for whatever I want. Use the short cut to enable Namely search, type in whatever you want, boom. Simple.

OnYx: Your Mac slowing your life down? Is it taking forever to boot up and/or launch a program? You probably have too much junk. Use this. Every week. Make your Mac happy.

Perian: The Combined Community Codec of Mac. If you have trouble watching .asf .mkv .mpg etc..., then you need this. IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE! NO JOKE. CAPS MEAN IT'S TRUE.

Roxio Burn/Roxio Toast: Heard of ImgBurn or Nero? Yes, these are the Mac equivalents but actually better. Damn jolly good.

Service Scrubber: Run this once a month.

Sizzling Keys: For iTunes fans. Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate playlist or whatever without having to leave your current window.

smcFanControl: Don't let your Mac overheat! Don't let your $650 go to waste! Use this all the time.

Transmission: If you really dislike uTorrent, for whatever awful reason, you can try this Mac compatible bitorrent program. It's quite an elegant program really.

Vienna RSS: For the Facebook-er, Myspace-er, the lurkers, and subscribers to faux news, this is for you.

I need not tell you to use these programs at your own risk. Read EVERYTHING before deploying these programs. Some will f*ck your computer even though it's designed for good simply because you failed to do adequate research.

Useful programs to have on your computah!

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6: Similar to System Mechanic but won't jack up your sh*t. And it's FREE. Go get it! *Also try CCleaner if you're too slow and couldn't get this for free. Just as good.

Combined Community Codec Pack: Can't watch those .mkv .avi .mpeg .asf .mp4, etc... files of pr0n you downloaded? You need this. It even comes of Windows Media Player Classic.

ImgBurn: You never know when you want to "backup" your Madden 11 onto a dual layer DVD or "backup" that Bluray movie/game.

NOD32 AV: Solid AV program. I've used almost all the antivirus programs out there including Norton AV/security suite, McAfee, AVG, Kaspersky, Avast, and Symantec, and NOD32 blows all these out of the water.
Why? NOD32 doesn't hog system resources like Symantec or Norton (POS had a few memory leaks which started to drain my memory of 600megs) or label your special files as viral (check Kaspersky, McAfee...). It's quite user friendly (by user friendly I mean noob friendly). Constant definition updates though nothing can protect your from zero day baddies.

Peerblock: Do you torrent? Might want to look into this. It won't completely protect you from prying eyes but it'll at least stop the boogey man from scaring away your PC.

Skype: Call your friends. Live chat with them. Send free text messages. Seriously, why are you even paying for texting?

Utorrent: Clean. Simple. Does what it's suppose to do which is to torrent. If you want a million addons and miscellaneous wares, get Vuze, Azureus 8.0.


Decaf: If you don't know what this is, you don't need it.

Truecrypt: If you don't know what this is, you don't need it.


For Firefox users, Foxyproxy is very useful.

Daily Humor (I think)

The Frogs in the Pit
Author unknown

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the unfortunate frogs they would never get out.
The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.
Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and simply gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could.
Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and suffering and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out.
When he got out, the other frogs asked him, "Why did you continue jumping? Didn't you hear us?"
The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging and cheering him on him the entire time.
The frog asked, "That is what you were doing? Right?"
