Remember Ring Gives You a Burning Reminder
The Remember Ring has a special nagging feature, using its “Hot Spot” technology that warms up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 seconds, every hour, on the hour, beginning 24 hours before that “special day,” apparently honoring the anniversary of your voluntary servitude.
I just had to laugh out loud when I saw this. What a
stupid brilliant idea! As I have been informed, this is not a novel idea, it was likely stolen from Harry Potter, but I’d like to think it’s original…it’s funnier that way.
p.s. For the record, just ask my girl, I don’t forget our anniversaries.
Breaking up with you, your daughter is prettier and easier
Dear Loved One:
By now you probably already know that I am having an affair with the youngest of your daughters. Itâ€™s not like I planned this to happen, but I couldnâ€™t help it, she is younger, sexier, prettier and easier. Yes, she is easier than you, and this is a moment in my life when I just want that. I got tired of you playing hard to get. You are just too complicated, with your inner conflicts and your multiple personality disorder trying to be everything to everyone. You just canâ€™t please everybody you know?
Debian: I will always have a place in my heart for you, but Iâ€™m with Ubuntu now and we are very happy together. Please stop attacking her. Itâ€™s your fault, not hers.
Probably the funniest thing I have read all month. An interesting way of saying goodbye, and of coarse the internet Title caught everyone’s attention.
Carbonite Online Backup
- Unlimited storage capacity for your PC backups
- Automatically finds all your data files—photos, documents, music, emails, everything
- Always on â€“ just connect to the Internet
- Set and forget â€“ just start Carbonite and relax
- Instantly detects and backs up changed files
- Never slows down your computer or Internet
- Exclude files you donâ€™t want to back up
- Strong encryption for super security
The downside? It only works on Windows PCs (as does Mozy). Mac users are out of luck for now.
I’ve been using this for a few days now, since reading about it over at TechCrunch, and I must admit that I am quite impressed. This is the first online backup application I have seen that you literally can “set it and forget it”. The pricing plan is very affordable as well, $5 a month for unlimited storage. Yes, they claim to offer $5 for unlimited storage. The upload is capped at 2GB of transfer to Carbonite’s servers, but that is hardly a problem considering that is a pretty good chunk of data. Inversely, if you need to use the restore functionality of Carbonite, you can download up to 15GB a day from Carbonite’s servers.
The only slight problem I have with this wonderful service is that while they claim to “never slow down your internet” I have noticed some slight slow down every once in a while. However, there is a option to lower the priority of Carbonite’s internet transfer which seems to fix this.

Consumers experience telemarketing from a completely different point of view: more than 92% perceive commercial telephone calls as a violation of privacy. Telemarketers make use of a telescript – a guideline for a telephone conversation. This script creates an imbalance in the conversation between the marketer and the consumer. It is this imbalance, most of all, that makes telemarketing successful. The EGBG Counterscript attempts to redress that balance.
Just an interesting (and perhaps) useful script you can follow to fight those damned telemarketers. Drop me a comment if you actually use this…I’d love to hear about your experience.
