I had been whining yesterday about my horrid luck and lo and behold if it didn’t change. Not till I got home tonight but anyway…
I was surfing around the other night and found this site called “Take My Tech” ran by Jason Burns of Philoking.com. Basically what he does is he posts his tech stuff that he doesn’t need anymore and then, well here let me use his words:
* Leave a comment on the item you want.
* When the item reaches 100 comments it will be randomly given away to one of those readers!
* Emails will not be sold or used for other reasons
* one comment per item
* rude or profane comments will be deleted!
Anyway, the comments finally hit 100 for the backpack I had been coveting and when he did the drawing I won, woo hoo.
From what I understand he is counting on ad revenue to pay for shipping and running the site. Sounds like a pretty cool idea and I hope it works out for him, hey maybe he could even turn a profit if enough people hit the site! Go check it out, you really have nothing to lose!
