  1. I have known quite a few folks to be successful with iDevAffiliate, and I think you went with the right company. I am curious as to what what your product is though? A game key cd store? Is that like when people lose the registration key from their games?
  2. I would think the risk and the expense would in no way be proportional to the rewards unless you already had an established income flow that could cover your costs on ANY given month. Otherwise, I believe you are setting yourself for a failure that you will have only one person to blame on.

    So what was your first Linux distro?

    I find that Skyrim works absolutely flawlessly on my install of Wine, but older games do not for some reason. It's like you said, it's hit or miss with that particular application. I work with Ubuntu 11, and have found more and more reasons to stick with it every day.

    Good people in the world

    This was pretty inspirational indeed! I just hope that her team mates saw it the same way, high school girls in the US can be brutal creatures....

    Avazio?

    I have always used Mediafire and have never seen the need to go with a pay service on that. They allow you unlimited storage, but only for files that are less than 200 megs. I don't see where a student would need more than that, but college is a weird place.
  6. Heh...the one guy who thought Fortran was going to give away his age isn't going to feel very bad. Anyone here remember BASIC? 10 PRINT "Dang I'm old.." 10 GOTO 10

    Dealing With Email Spam

    I have Thunderbird's filters set so tightly that I doubt my own mother could get an email through to my inbox if she were using anything other than her own PC. Do you use any kind of POP3 client?

    Impulse Buying.

    It depends for me. If my PayPal account is looking good for the month, I tend to go a little crazy with that money because it seems so much more "disposable" to me for some reason. Instead of websites, I splurge on the e-cigarette stuff like gourmet smoke juices and the like. But my brick and mortar bank account is kept tighter than most, to the dismay of my fiancee and her shoe habit.

    Opinions on My Next Build?

    I think the most intensive thing I do with my PC would probably be one of my games or the Seti@Home program that I leave running. I try to keep my options open though, and I do use Sql quite a bit during the course of my home based 9-5 job. Thank you all for the input, and I guess I can see not throwing so much money (about 400 clams) down on RAM that isn't neccesarily needed.

    Freebie!

    I'm actually seeing quite a bit on your site that interests me, Spike. I have been completely freelance since 2006, and yet still find myself stumbling around a little bit. My usual thing is to hook onto a solid remote IT contract as my primary source of income, and use the rest of my time either developing a blog or exploring other opportunities. Nothing has really panned out... So thank you for the free book, it was very gracious of you. And I will be haunting your site for a bit for some more needed knowledge.

    Tech Firms Scour College Campuses for Talent

    They never scoured the campus of MY college *sheds single, dignified tear*. Then again, UF was more known for it's athletics than it's eggheads, in fact I had to do one of Danny Weurfel's(sp) lab assignments because he hurt his widdle knee. I'm not bitter though...really.

    MyBB hacked

    Seems like a weird and unprofitable target for a hack. It's open source anyway, isn't it?

    Godaddy.com

    I would say that GoDaddy would be a good choice for a beginner who had limited technical knowledge and wanted to just get up and running quickly. What I don't like about them is that they are way overpriced for what they offer, and they never seem to stop wanting to up-sell you SOMETHING. I use ANHosting now, and haven't really looked at any other companies. Their service is a bit more all-inclusive and they offer unlimited domains, bandwidth, storage, and they never bother me to buy more swag.

    How to Remove Winrar Popup

    Yeah I feel ya on the Winrar popup, and the "full version" you purchase is pretty much the same thing, only without a popup and a tech support number. And well....if you need to call their technical support to be able to unzip something, you're probably the kind of person who shouldn't be using it anyway. Just my opinion though, and I don't mean to sound harsh. Thank you for the hack!

    Opinions on My Next Build?

    Sure it will. It will help me look over at my fellow geeks and say, "hey, I got 32 GB of RAM". But I see your point, but my big thing is that I upgrade my entire machine every five years. Sure, the OS won't do much with the other 24GB, but no one can predict the future, and that's what I have to keep in mind due to my remote location.
