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 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.

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.

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.
