How to turn your dead computer into a new one.

Why you should get a new computer when your logic board breaks. It turns a bad day into a good day. Yes your logic board broke and that sucks, but hey you get to get a new computer right away, hurray. If you just fix your logic board it is a sad day, you have to send away your computer for a few days, and pay money to have the same boring computer.
I found out today when you should cry over spilled milk. As they came back with my open computer at the genius bar and show me that a liquid probably milk has corroded the inside. I was like yeah, my daughter spilled milk on it about a month ago, and it was working fine up until a few days ago.
I still plan to buy a screw driver to open it up and see if they are full of shit and I can get it working again.
But that is for a different day. Today I have a new new Macbook. I was going to wait till next year to buy one, but opportunity struck and I got lucky and had to buy one today.
Well I complained about the macbook having only one plugin, but don't worry now that i have one, let the complaints really begin.
I have an old post sitting around about 20% vs 10% discounts. And Jeff gave me two new posts to write over the weekend: "Saving Leftover Breadsticks" and "Buying Beefeater Gin".
Bye Felicia. Seriously, that is the line from Friday that became an internet meme? Of all the lines I remember people repeating after the movie came out, "Bye Felicia" was not one of them, but rather the responses to her requests, such as borrowing a VCR, but hey kids today don't know what that is.

Hats are soooo pedestrian

Edla.com is back!!! And what better way to celebrate than a pic of steak and eggs. Because if you aren't eating steak for breakfast you might as well eat cereal, yuck, what are you doing, getting ready for school, or currently sitting in a cubicle?
As the title suggests do not wear your hat inside. There is only 2 types of people allowed to do that: pedestrians, to whom do not know any better and the queen of England, because she is bald.
So before you order your meal, make sure your hat is off, or the waitress may spit in your food, and she will be justified; by giving you the equal respect that you gave her.

$20 Rebates not worth your time

My wife asked me recently should she fill out the rebate for $20. I was like definitely no, the time spent is not worth it. Now if she asked between $20 - $50, I might have said yes, depending if she was in the mood to do it, and if we were watching tv, and if the stamp was already down stairs and they provided an envelope. Personally even $75 dollars is shaky for me, $100+ is a definite yes, but I may still try to have my wife do it. Did I mention I hate rebates, and 1/2 the time the money never comes anyways, or another 1/4 of the time, you cut out the upc and then want to return the product which you no longer can do (what a scam). Post coming soon ... "Fire Your Butler: what to do when your yearly gross is cut in 1/2"

Be The Conversation Piece

I was worried my black sox would ruin peoples time at the pool party, but then i realized i gave them something to talk about.
This thought was confirmed when i realized my friends were talking about my knowledge of sun-tanning theory. No, none of them went to schools in a sun state. Im pretty sure sun-tan theory is not a major at the UofMn.
If you ever worry how you are dressed, keep in mind you are an internet millionaire and come monday all the well dressed saps have to go to work.
Imagine if everyone at a pool party wore black sox, seriously imagine the scene for a second. That would be pretty cool, and definitely a facebook worthy post.
Caveat: if you have your kids with you, dont be an asshole, take off those sox.

I Moved My Blog to Blogger

You might not have even noticed but i moved my blog to blogger. Why? Because i don't want the hassle of a server failing on me. The whole point of being an Internet Millionaire is to have less worries, and spend more time showing off your life on Facebook.

Unfortunately, every time i hit tab it does not indent, but rather just moves the cursor off of the Compose screen. Well some people don't believe you should indent paragraphs on blogs, maybe google agrees.

I guess maybe i will just add a line break, because otherwise this is going to look like an even more of a jumble mess.

So I will try to move some of my old blog posts here, specially the great instructional posts from mikeedla.com where i actually teach you something, about how to be an Internet Millionaire by the basics of starting your own arcade.

Why am I waiting for an oil change?


I apologize to my readers in advance for not having a personal assistant. Clearly that is necessary for the internet millionaire who would rather be spending time doing anything else. Though i do enjoy the free coffee and cookies at the Honda dealership.
Clearly, if I had a p.a., I wouldn’t have had to rush out of the house at 10:40, while i was still working on an important project.
Today’s goal was to find a virtual assistance to pick-up some more of my weekly web work, but maybe i should also have an ad out or search for on Care.com a p.a.

The difference between iKea and dRinking.

One you should do a lot, and one you should never do. Don’t have time to actually write something, already wasted time chatting with 
Pete a friend.
