What? .. Let me explain...

First before you spend(ask for) a favor you have to make sure you enough in the bank. Ask yourself have I done something for this person that would make them want to help?

Bank your favors Always invest your favors so when you'll need a favor you can withdraw.

Make sure your investing in the right favor funds
Ask yourself: Has the fund helped me when in need? Am I just putting all my favors in and not getting any favors in return? You want to make sure you your getting a good return on investment.

Limit your loans Nobody likes debt. If you have a a favor loan make sure to repay quickly. Interest does accrue and is unfortunately not a viable tax deduction.

I made my blog available in rss so it would be searchable with Google Blog Search. It seems like I have to design my whole site around google's antics :/.

The next upgrade might be to add smilies to the blog so when I feel like making stupid faces like :O it changes it to a face.

Here's the link to the .rss until I add a permanent link.

I updated the rss feed so the format is nicer and easier to read. Before the html was showing as text.

I've been thin all my life. And by now, since I am 26 years of age, am tolerable to the fact that I will never be of average weight but slightly less. A lot of people made riches off publishing their guide to weight loss and often people encourage me to do the same. I've meant for years to do so however have come to a block in the road on all occasions. However I do now know the recipe and will now write it here for free without any published book title "Tjs Diet" or ever clever naming scheme. The secret to thinness is to fidget for whatever worth. Never stay still.. if you sitting move you are leg up and down in a fast uncontrallable motion ...if you are waiting for company to arrive walk around your house in circles to they arrive...if you are sleeping, move around the bed so much that when you wake your sheets are no longer on the bed... chew your pens to the ink fills your mouth... when you are nervous have your hands tremble in an uncontrollable fashion so when your passing a drink to a friend the drink splashes to the ground... make constants trips to the fridge open it, see nothing you like and close the fridge, open again and repeat just to close again and take nothing...

These are some of the things I do every day without noticing. These are the things I think make it impossible to gain weight. Unfortunetely for those who do not fidget I do not beleive that controlable fidgeting is a weight loss possibility.

I'll try to conitinue when I'm sober...

Joost (pronounced 'juiced') is a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis.

Watch your favorite shows from MTV, Comedy Central, and WB on your computer.

I have the program and I gotta tell you I'm quite impressed. There's not that much programming available but they do have some cools shows and the quality is decent too.

Joost sign up is currently an invite-only basis.

The good news is I got invites so leave a comment with your email address and I will be nice enough to send you an invite.


Update: The Joost software seems to be very tempermental and will no longer load up. I checked the forums and it seems a lot of users are having the same issues as me. It's not worth the hastle so I uninstalled the program and will wait for

a.)better software AND
b.)more programming.

Unfortunately, I can no longer offer invitations as you need the program installed to send invitations. The alternative is to goto and "Sign up for Joost beta" and you should receive an invite in a couple days.

Disable Back Button - This is very annoying and I hate site's that do this. If you have to trap people from exiting your site you have a problem. The hits you gain from this practice is not worth the visitors you piss you off by doing this.

Sound - Sound from a website is very annoying when its unexpected. A lot of pages are starting to put movies and songs on their main page. This trend defitinely does not bring in more visitors but it sure does lose visitors. Just think of the person viewing a page at work and then hears music - right away they close the page never to go back to the site again.
