Because 30 just isn’t enough

I got an email from the NaBloPoMo people, and they sent me a link to http://blog365.ning.com/.
The idea here is to blog every day for 2008, with Feb 29th being a day off.

I wonder if I can do it?

I mean, I almost didn’t make 30 days in a row, and now 365?
Granted, it would be a little different. I wouldn’t be going for word count for this.

I suppose I could do it, as long as people didn’t mind the occasional inane little post.

So, uh, yea. I signed up.

And in signing up they had one of those picture words.
Is it bad that mine was facile? 😀

Slayer

I’ve been watching videos most of the morning(I think there are a total of three people in the office this morning).

Started with Dragonforce, now onto Slayer.

I watched Seasons in the Abyss with my mother one day.
All she could say was “He has a very nice guitar.”
Not sure if she watched enough to see the spikey arm band 🙂

Cheap Ink

When I bought the printer, I knew that I would need extra ink.
For my printer, there are 4 cartridges.
Once per colour and one for black.

At Bestbuy, the colour ones come in a handy single pack for $71.
The black you get get in a two pack for $40(more or less).

That seems like a lot of money to me, and I knew this is how these companies make their money.

So I found http://www.sellink.ca

Recycled cartridges are $8 each, so $32 to fill up the printer again.
What I didn’t realize until it showed up today is that these are filled with ink already. For some reason I expected them to be empty.

Also, refills are $20 for 6(of each colour) and $27 for 12 of the black.

So for the $90 I spent(taxes are in there as well) I have 7 colour refills and 14 black ones(bought two cartridges for some reason).

In comparison, that would cost me $777 from Bestbuy….egad!
Wait, and that’s $885 after taxes!

Gah!
Double Gah!

Granted, I haven’t tried this ink yet, it might be too good to be true.

But still….
