State of the Guild Address
posted by Nastard on Wednesday December 21, @12:12PM
from the long-time-coming dept.
slack It hasn't really been almost seven months, has it? Really? Well I'll be damned. I apologize for the worst lapse in SG history, but I've been a little busy lately. Busy doing things like meeting the woman of my dreams, recording and releasing an indie rock record, getting laid off, and logging more hours in the hospital than the rest of my years combined. At least the server has stayed up. That's good.

For those of you still paying attention, here's my notes on where we are now, where we're going (or not going - whatever), and where you can all stick it.

Computers Anonymous Coward writes, Our child certainly adored his jumperoo, also it offered me a chunk of fingers down time in order to smoke, clean up or use a cuppa. I aquired the idea 2nd hand pertaining to $54 and also marketed the idea 6 many weeks eventually pertaining to $47. We would declare your baby only tried on the extender till your baby had been hanging around after which your baby couldn't wish to be restricted therefore it's value looking at next hand. I will perform the exact same pertaining to this little princess in certain many weeks when this woman is significant enough. One of our best baby jumpers products! Our own litttle girl just simply considered in place and also bouncing continuously, it absolutely was a real stress on all of our arms/backs and we all acquired your ex a Jumperoo, additional release, and he or she certainly beloved it., definitely we were required to reduce your ex occasion inside it, she would have got bounced non-stop, and he or she have when bounce she is in order to sleep.

Everyday most of us combine our tortilla dough completely from scratch, rotate these out and about, then bbq grill these just before you about our own master iron comal. These substantial, game iron griddles happen to be utilized to cook flatbreads like tortillas since 700 BCE, and that we didn't go to whichever reason to shirk tradition. But now, everything become easy to make tortillas with the best tortilla maker. All of this additional energy repays the result is the actual hottest, a lot of delectable base pertaining to enchiladas, tacos, plus burritos. Along with you know what? They will simply have some sort of 10-minute lifespan, and that means you recognize that you are having the hottest possible!

Ladies and gentlemen, a guest article by Fred Durst!

An Intro to White Plastic Crap
posted by Nastard on Monday May 02, @10:24AM
from the long-overdue-apple-linkdump dept.
Links With the release of the Mac mini, the iPod shuffle, and now OS X Tiger, Apple has been seeing a lot of press lately, and for good reason. It's easy to see how Apple has returned to the status of industry darling with 40 iPods being sold per minute (and increasing). The marvelous little music player has also made AAPL the tech stock to watch, bumping Google to a close second (a fact that Apple has not overlooked in their Dashboard widget). What is it that makes Apple fans so passionate (read: cult-like) about the company? It could be the attraction to style and design, which, as even the PC-friendly will admit, Apple has down to, well, an art. It could be the infamous Steve Jobs Reality Distortion Field. Or it may just be the hipster elitism of being in the expensive designer minority.

Of course, the real answer is simple. Macs are much, much better.

The Secret Images Microsoft Doesn't Want You To See
posted by bonch on Wednesday March 30, @06:00PM
from the confidential-like-strawberry-ice-cream dept.
Computers Microsoft has been working on Longhorn since dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Armed with mighty spear and leather crotch-cloth, ancient Microsoft empoyees embarked on a prehistoric journey that would rival the cockroach in its ability to never stop going on. Recently, Paul Thurrot of WinSuperSite ran yet another Longhorn preview, telling us how great it will be for Windows to have features other operating systems have had for years. A series of screenshots were also released on the site. But by the time Slashdot got its hands on it, three screenshots were removed from the original piece. And this is their story. Read on...

Better Than Free - Giving Away Money
posted by Nastard on Thursday February 10, @10:47AM
from the still-cheap-for-me dept.
slack I mentioned before that I didn't want to see SG turn into a free___.com whoring site while we worked on the relaunch, so this will be (I promise) the last time I post about it.

We all know that I was sent two (2) iPods, and Noir just got his a couple of days ago, so this is most assuredly not a scam. Call it a pyramid scheme, call it stupid, whatever. It's legitimate, and you really do get whatever it is you're signing up for. This, to me, translates to "not scam".

I have most of the needed referrals for my iPod Photo, but none for my Mac Mini, and only a handful for the rest. While I appreciate everyone who has signed up and helped me (and the other folks whose links were in the last post) out, it's time to sweeten the pot just a little.

Many of you have no interest in signing up because you'll never get all of the needed refs to get anything out of it. To give you folks some incentive, I'm offering $10 to anyone who signs up through my link and completes an offer. Once your offer is complete, send me an email, and I'll send you $10 via PayPal. Yes, I'm serious. Here's the links:

Free Crap Roundup
posted by Nastard on Sunday January 16, @11:02AM
from the buy-our-love dept.
slack At the risk of allowing Slackers Guild to turn into an advertising site, I'm posting another article on the various Gratis "free" sites. Before I get to the links, I'll point out what I've said before: this is not a scam. I received (thanks to their mistake) two (2) 20GB iPods from freeipods.com. Nothing bad happened. Sure, they probably signed me up for some spam, but that's what Hotmail accounts are for. Or better yet, if you have reservations about spam, I'd be glad to send you a Gmail invite.

Free Crap:

iPod Photo: 40GB iPod Photo from Apple. Requires 10 signups.
Flatscreen: Choose between several flatscreen TVs or a 17" Samsung LCD monitor. Requires 8 signups.
Game Console: Choose between an X-Box, PS2, GameCube, or the new Nintendo DS. Requires 4 signups.
Mac Mini: Apple's new Mac Mini, just announced last week at MacWorld. Requires 10 signups.
iPod Shuffle: Apple's new flash-based iPod with 1GB or storage. Requires 3 signups.

The whole thing is rather simple and painless, and even if you lack the motivation to seek out the required referrals for yourself, at least by signing up you'd be supporting SG. And this way is more or less free to you, unlike the donate and wish list buttons over on the left, which you're also more than welcome to click.

Ask SG: Where Do You Slack?
posted by Nastard on Sunday January 16, @11:00AM
from the what-do-you-do-half-assed-these-days? dept.
slack Amnott Responsible writes, "So I happened upon this site while i was killing the many free hours in my day. I chekced it out and found some pretty cool stuff. But there was one thing that was missing (besides recent updates), but i was wondering what the rest of the slackers guild does for work. Now i know that that might seem a little contradictory but i my self am in a great position where i get payed to slack off all day. I'd like to hear from the rest of the guild and see what it is they do that they can get away slacking all day long?"

I wasn't going to put up any new articles until the re-launch, but this is a really good question, and I'm surprised nobody has asked it before.

Holiday Charity
posted by Nastard on Tuesday December 21, @10:33PM
from the last-article dept.
Humor I was at Best Buy the other day, and after I was done fending off the slack-jawed moron who was trying to sell me a replacement plan for the replacement plan I just bought, I noticed that they have a "Toys For Teens" program. Upon further inspection, it seems that it's an extension of the "Toys For Tots" charity. This clever alliteration combined with the sudden seasonal desire to give a shit about people other than myself inspired me to create my own program.

What Do You Want For Christmas, Worm-Children?
posted by bonch on Friday December 03, @04:34PM
from the jolly-boots-of-doom dept.
Rants Another November has passed, and the cold, chill of evil December, last month of the year, has reared its icy head to gaze its glaring red eyes upon the innocents. Christmas is also coming, so what would you like under the tree? I'll start, but first I must describe the evils of Christmas. Because you care. Read on...
