Dang... 750-800KB/s

My combined bittorrent speed from 10 torrents has been hovering around the 750-800 KB/s speed for the past...5 minutes.

This is quite unusual. I usually don't see more than 500 on comcast's cable. I guess no one else is using it in the local area.

Nair

Nair doesn't work like I hoped/thought it would. :P I was hoping it'd loosen the roots of the hair, so it comes out that way, but instead I discovered that it just melts the hair, more or less, so it separates easily.

Should have done more research -.-;;; But now I know. And it wasn't all that expensive.

And no, my legs aren't bare yet... I figured it be safest to test it on my bellybutton, and a tiny bit below that... Had to wait 'bout 8 so minutes, past the 5 they suggested. :: shrugs::

Next in line to try:
Braun Epilator [ random version at amazon ]

Suggested on a, oddly enough, nudist forum on shaving. Seems most people wax, or shave, but this was noted as a pretty good option, and has pretty high reviews. As in, 4.5 stars over 100+ reviewers on Amazon. It's on the expensive side though, but if it means not having to shave and such daily, I think it may be worth it. We'll see.

Blingo

http://www.blingo.com/friends?ref=HTZrVCDfBET-WYvA20O8mZ9hk9A

So here's how this works:
It's a search engine powered by Google.
Blingo picks certain times of the day. If you search at the right time, you win a prize, stuff ranging from movie tickets/$10 iTunes certificate, iPod shuffles/$100 visa card, to PSP/$250 visa cards. Also, if you're referred by a friend, they also get the prize.

Limits:
Each physical address can get two prizes per month.
You only have 10 valid searches per day. (chances are, you won't use all 10. Who searches 10 times a day, anyways? I know, at most, I'll search 4-5 times throughout the day.)

How they earn money:
Ads on the side. Usual stuff.

Use the link above, or the one below, and join. And search. :D Let's get free stuff!

Join Blingo under me! Mwahahaha...

Although, honestly, I'm not fond of their layout. It takes up more space than I like. Kinda... cramped, somehow. And there's less.. spiffyness to play with than A9, which I use for the sake of π/2% off Amazon purchases. hehe. Although, I think I've saved 'bout $10-20 over the past... several months since I started using it.
