Verizon Wireless Card

Verizon PC5740 card

I have a Verizon Wireless PC card – PC5740 (courtesy of my girlfriend’s work). It’s the best thing ever. If you have the money to spare, do yourself a favor and get one. I use it every time I travel. I can surf the internet while I’m in traffic – jealous much?

Anyway, since I got my new laptop I hadn’t had a chance to used it. So I installed the program and slid in the card.

And I got the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.

Nothing I did worked and everything they had about the issue on Google was over 2 years old.

I looked to see if I needed to install any Windows Updates and yes, I did. Vista Service Pack 1 was there staring at me in the face.

I installed it, put the card back in and now I’m ready to go mobile.

Quicktime Ruined My Day

Since my laptop is new, I havent put all my programs on it yet. I usually get around to doing that on a “when I need to use it” basis. This morning, I was messing around and saw a new movie trailer I hadnt watched yet and needed Quicktime (I wont say what trailer cause it’s a total chick movie).

I downloaded Quicktime and watched the Mama Mia trailer… uh, I mean, watched the trailer for the Angelina Jolie movie Wanted.

A little while later, I noticed that whenever I clicked onto a web page, it took a while to load. I was going nuts cause there was no reason for it.  I searched Google, disabled my firewall, plugged my connection directly into the router, and did a hundred other fixes. Nothing I did worked.

Since I have the worst memory ever, I finally remembered: I installed Quicktime.

I love Quicktime and in all the years I’ve used it, I have never ever had any sort of problem with it. But regardless, I was getting more and more frustrated and went to System Restore.

It deleted Quicktime and what do you know? I was back up and running like nothing was ever wrong.

Has anyone ever had that problem with Quicktime?

Shifting ads units around

If you haven’t noticed, I changed some of the ad placements on this site – more so on UltimateRedskins.

I tried to change them around on CatPuppy but I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with that site adwise. I’ll address that in a later post.

I found some great info on ad placements and decided to move things around. I havent been making a lot of money from my sites (I’m cool with that, it’s just frustrating hearing about the amount of money I could be making if you have the proper placements) so doing this was a no brainer. Google has a nice page about where the best placements are. Problogger has one also.

Tension Headaches suck (Updated)

I’ve had this freakin’ headache since Saturday – 6 days!

I went out on Friday night and drank…so I originally thought it was a small hangover (I never get hangover’s – I know, I’m blessed) but when it went into the evening, I got suspicious. I had already taken some Motrin but obviously that didn’t help. So, I popped some Tylenol.

Nothing.

I bought some Excedrin and started popping them. Still nothing. I’m still in pain and now it’s Monday. Tuesday, I go out and buy Excedrin Tension. Again, nothing! still don’t know what the deal is… I just want it gone so I decide to log onto Google to do some self-research.

Apparently I had a brain tumor. (more…)

My quest to get Page Ranked

I’m relatively new to blogging and especially blogging for money, so up until a couple weeks ago I had never heard of page rank – much less Alexa. Well, I think I hooked up with a girl named Alexa back in High School but let’s leave that for another blog.

Anyway, after Text Link Ads (click here for the post) denied me because I didn’t have a high enough ranking, I realized: I gotta get recognized.

So, I started my research. (more…)

Hacking the Verizon Voyager to get Sirius Radio

I’ve been jealous of the iPhone since it came out so when I saw that Verizon had something coming out called the Voyager that was compatible, I had to have it. It was my Christmas present to myself and I love it. It’s everything I’ve wanted in a phone and what’s the best is that I didn’t have to switch providers to get it.

Anyway, I love Howard Stern and I’ve tried and tried to listen to Sirius Radio on the phone since day 1 but finally figured out it just wouldn’t work.

Then last week, I got an idea: What if I used my phone’s blue tooth and pair it with my PDA. (more…)
