rssHugger

Well I’ve just ran across rssHugger and I thought I’d give it a try to see what’s it’s all about.

To join rssHugger you need to do a review of them or pay $20 if you don’t want to do the review…

I’m curious as to how you’re supposed to do a review when you aren’t really using their service yet though, I’m not quite sure how I can review something if I really have no experience with it. I don’t think they want a review of their service as much as they just want the exposure for rssHugger through a post on your blog.

But from their site:

rssHugger is a unique website that aims to bring bloggers and readers together. rssHugger aims to provide blog owners with a unique easy-to-use way to promote their blogs by sending them traffic, building backlinks for search engine optimization, as well as attracting new rss subscribers if the content is interesting to the reader. rssHugger aims to help visitors be able to easily find blogs that write about subjects they are interested in. These subjects include: internet marketing, making money online, charity, sports, gambling, and many more. If the visitors find a blog that they had not previously heard about, they can easily add it to their RSS readers or bookmark it.

To get your blog listed, you must make a blog post/review about rssHugger on your blog and submit the link. All you have to do is register your blog. Your blog will not be listed until an admin manually approves of your post (FREE).

Of course I’ll give anything a try to get some more traffic, and I’ll update this post and maybe just make a new post as to how rssHugger works out for me. It all sounds interesting and it would be nice if it worked out as well as it is suggested it will.

EDIT: and HERE is my rssHugger page… I ran into a  snag that Collin (the owner) personally fixed when trying to submit my site, now that’s service!

Noctua NF-P12 fan and a nice surprise!

So I got the new Noctua NF-P12 120mm fan today for review, and I got a very nice surprise with it as well..

Two surprises actually, they sent me a nice Noctua branded pen, which is ok, but the real surprise is the recognition that DragonSteelMods got from Noctua…

I almost missed it actually, there is a fold out section on the box that displays the technology involved in the design on the NF-P12, but at the bottom is a little section about awards their previous fans have received.. and DragonSteelMods is listed!!! WooHoo…

Some real recognition for all my hard work! It feels very good to see that, it’s actually very exciting, especially since it’s from one of my favorite companies, I love Noctua products and always have..

Check out the pics:

It might not mean much to most people but it makes me feel really good.. a nice warm fuzzy feeling inside!!!

and heres’ the links for the reviews of those fans

NF-R8 HERE

NF-S12 HERE

So Thanks Noctua for the recognition!

ATM Fees Suck!

I’m sure most people already know that ATM fees are just stupid, why should we have to pay blackmail to get access to our own money?

Seriously though, does it really cost $3 for a bank that is not mine to let me use their machine and give me money? So basically they are charging me three dollars for them to connect to my bank and see if there’s enough money to give me what I requested.. It’s goofy, it’s extortion is what it is…

So I had to go downtown recently and of course there were no parking spots on the street so i had to use a parking garage, it sucks really because I only had to run in for a quick 15minute meeting, but of course I got charged for 30 minutes. Luckily this was on a Saturday and 30 minutes to 1 hour is only $2 at the garage I parked in.

Normally I like to have some cash on me, or I’ll hit the ATM on my way to town, well that day I didn’t have any cash and of course the ATM was out of order at my bank, they were doing the maintenance on it… So of course I figured I’d be alright because I had change for the meter or I could just use my card to pay for a parking garage.. So as I said there were no spots on the street to park so I went into the garage to park, well when I got done with my appointment I went to pay, it’s all automated so there is no one there to take your money, and when I try to pay I find out that the machines are not accepting credit cards right now… So my nearest bank is about 5 blocks away, I really didn’t want to walk, so I hit the closest ATM that was only about 100Yards from the parking garage. I took $10 out, got charged $3 by that bank, so I get my statement in the mail from my bank and THEY CHARGED ME $1.50 as well for that transaction!

So it essentially it costs me $6.50 to park for 15 minutes. The ATM charged me $3, my bank charged me $1.50 for using a strange ATM and the parking was only $2….

$4.50 FEE for withdrawing $10 OF MY MONEY!

There’s something wrong with this system, there really is…

I don’t get it…

So yesterday I posted on here and DSM about the sale that USBFever was having, the MicroSD reader for 1 penny plus $3 shipping…

“Ultra Slim T-Flash (Micro SD) Card Reader for 1 Penny!

http://www.usbfever.com/index_eproduct_view.php?products_id=282

original price US$11.99/pc
sales price US$0.01/pc-Can’t beat that deal… but I believe there is a $3 shipping charge, still though it’s a very good deal..”

Well I thought it was a great deal so I posted it on a couple forums I frequent thinking other people might like to have one for basically $3.. it’s a great deal and most think it is… but today I get a PM from one of the mods on a forum that I won’t name, telling me that they deleted my post about the deal… telling me something along the lines of since they are a sponsor of mine I shouldn’t be posting things like this… essentially saying, (without actually saying-reading between the lines here…) that I was getting some sort of kickback for the deal… how much of a kickback could I possibly get when the thing sells for ONE PENNY?!?!?

I mean, I could be off base here, but that’s what I read into it, that it was being deleted because they thought I was getting something in return…

I thought I was being nice by sharing a great deal with others….

no good deed goes unpunished eh…

oh well..whatever

Bad Luck and DSM is on Facebook now

So I had some bad luck the end of last month with an SATA hard drive enclosure I got for review, it fried two of my SATA hard drives… They were extras that I use for backup and for testing things like the HDD enclosure but still that’s 160gigs of space that I lost now.. so yesterday I decided to switch my main system back to my Antec P182 case , the case I was using was just a bit too loud for my tastes and it’s open on the side so a bit of dust was collecting, and in the process I busted the data connection off of one of my 200gig SATA drives, I just got it last month.. So int he last month and a half I’ve basically lost 360gigs of data and storage, thankfully I do backups now all the time, every since my Maxtor hard drive caught fire last year.. I learned my lesson about doing regular backups… I actually backup my backup now!

and I’ve created a Facebook page for DragonSteelMods as well, just did it the other day, but if you are on Facebook, stop by HERE and become a fan!

I have my personal Facebook page HERE, but I haven’t really done much with it… I only joined because I found someone with my last name, which is odd… I thought I and my immediate family were the only ones with that last name… and he thought the same thing as well…

and here’s deal, one of DragonSteelMods sponsors is having a great sale:

Xbox Handheld game from Kellogg’s

I remember when I was a kid begging my mom and grandma to get me the cereal with the toy in it, I just had to have it, now that I have kids they do the same thing of course.

Well grandma spoils my kids of course, buying them their favorite sweetened cereals and usually it comes with a toy. So yesterday she gave me a box go Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies and it says on the box that there is an Xbox Mini Game Inside.

Naturally I’m a bit curious as to the quality of this so called game.. Looking at the back of the box there are pictures and descriptions of the many possible ‘games’ that you can get for free. In the center is a huge ‘Turn On The Fun!’ announcement surrounding a graphic of the Xbox power button. Inside the box I found the Car Racing game, the description makes it sound so cool and exciting, but in reality it’s pretty bad…

The graphic on the back of the box actually looks better than the actual thing.. now that’s bad…

Here’s some shots of it playing and a brief movie as well after them:

Check out that “Heart-Pounding Excitement” we have going on here… bah.. junk


Online shopping websites sell wedding rings jewelry ranging from imitation jewelry to diamonds. You can buy pearl earrings that might be interested for people looking for wedding rings. It’s just like buying dvd players from stores selling cheap dvds.
