Quote from: analog kid on January 13, 2015, 11:20:37 PMWhat's the advantage of using google? I'm about to renew a domain next month, I'm with godaddy, which of course blows. But it's $15 a year for the domain.

Quote from: Juan on January 22, 2015, 07:02:28 AMI'm seeing this constant upgrade stuff across a lot of software - and said software seems to end up as pay by the month - Adobe products, a couple of songwriting programs, and now Cakewalk Sonar. It has the appearance of a looting scheme. I'm trying to go back to open source.
Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on January 22, 2015, 12:10:40 PMAmazon's Mechanical Turk is a subsite where people pay something like 5 to 8 cents to have a person enter some kind of data found on an image. This data is very difficult for machines and computers to read. However, many people are using it to game goolge-increasing their page rankings. They put a listing on the mechanical turk to go and find some web site (and then link it) and they pay 2 cents per link.Take a look:https://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=3WNG995UYJGH86UZZ8E8746M2298DV

Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on January 22, 2015, 08:54:49 PMI'm not sure about Canada's tax code, but in the US you could possibly deduct the price of your computer, your monthly internet bill, and even a 100 square foot home office for this work since this is your business.

Quote from: cweb on January 28, 2015, 05:38:01 PMJust spent an hour sanitizing my parents' computer. Thanks, reckless downloading!My dad was getting the "YOUR COMPUTER IS AT RISK AND WILL START KILLING PUPPIES UNLESS YOU CALL 1-800-ufakery AND PAY $60 FOR NOTHING" message. Because his work portal site works best on IE, which is a slut of a browser.
