  • Targeted Amazon Ads

    07/22/2014 1:06:53 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 18 replies
    I run Amazon ads on my blog and do pretty well. But I regularly see targeted Amazon ads on other sites like Facebook and Weather.com that show me ads based on things I recently searched for on Amazon. However I have not figured out how to do this with any of the Amazon Associate tools that are offered. Anyone know about how to do this?

  • Why would any company only write an iPhone app?

    09/04/2013 1:45:24 AM PDT · by chaosagent · 33 replies
    OK, I'm confused. Why would any company only write an iPhone/iPad app for their product? The last time I checked there were about 10 times more Android device than iPhone/iPads. Even Drudge only has an iPhone/iPad app. Nothing for Android. Is it just the cachet of the iPhone, or am I missing something here?

  • Looking For A Backup Utility

    06/13/2012 12:04:50 AM PDT · by chaosagent · 10 replies
    I'm looking for a backup utility, and so far I haven't found one that will do what I need so I thought I'd come to the font of all knowledge, FR. I need to back up a single folder to another folder every night at a certain time. Ideally, the destination folder name would be the date, i.e. 20120613, but really any name is OK as long as it has a different name each night. Note I don't want anything overwritten. I just want a new copy every night. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help.
  • Why was my Wordpress blog disabled?

    03/13/2012 10:47:23 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 19 replies
    Sometime this afternoon my blog at www.ourrvadventures.wordpress.com was archived or disabled for violation of their Terms of Service. This blog details my wife and my travels in our RV. I have no idea what I could have done to violate the Terms. I've had this blog for 3 years and never had a problem. I contacted Workpress earlier this afternoon, but still haven't heard back. Anyone have any ideas, or a better way to handle this, maybe the home phone number of the president of Wordpress?
  • What's happening with Irene's wind speeds?

    08/27/2011 4:27:23 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 144 replies
    What's going on with Irene's wind speeds? StormPulse says the winds are 80mph with Irene just off the NC/VA border. But WeatherUnderground show winds at Norfolk and Virginia Beach less than 30 mph. Drudge had a mention of this also. So are they overhyping this or what?

  • Bristol Palin Vote Compromised?

    11/22/2010 5:31:06 PM PST · by chaosagent · 32 replies · 1+ views
    Just tried to call in from two different phones to vote for Bristol Palin. The first time I called from either phone the message told me I had reached my limit of calls, on my FIRST call. It took me 9 calls on the first phone and 7 calls on the 2nd to get my 10 votes in. Haven't tried the computer yet. Wonder if someone is messing around with the votes?
  • Need info on Searchlight NV Tea Party

    03/24/2010 11:31:17 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 7 replies · 428+ views
    I'm hoping to get some info on the Tea Party Rally in Searchlight, NV this coming Saturday. I've gone to the Teapartyexpress.org website, but I'm looking for better info on where it actually is. We drove thru there a week ago on our way to Las Vegas, where we are now and I don't remember anyplace that could hold all these people. According to the Google map on the website it's at US 95 and Coyote Mind Rd. But what's there? Just a big open area in the desert? A grandstand? Will we have to walk a long way from...

  • Why are parts of the new "Get Smart" movie on video and not film?

    07/10/2008 11:24:30 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 4 replies · 95+ views
    My wife and I went to see the "Get Smart" movie this afternoon and I noticed something that I've never seen in a commercial movie before. A number of scenes were done on video and edited into the movie. It seemed to be mainly during action scenes, especially the scenes during the fighting in the SUV toward the end and some shots with the Chief in the Cessna. Is this the coming trend? Or something just in this movie? I hope not, because I've been in video and film long enough that it's very disconcerting to see this done. Anyone...
  • Problems with Strata-Sphere's Obama Birth Certificate Forgery Myth Busting?

    07/06/2008 1:24:43 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 23 replies · 754+ views
    I just read the Strata-Sphere's supposed debunking of the Obama birth certificate forgery situation. http://strata-sphere.com/blog/index.php/archives/5626 And I've got two (maybe more) problems/questions. 1. Where are the folds in the paper? It was posted in a previous article on FR that someone had talked to the department that sends out BC's in Hawaii and the lady confirmed that they never send out a electronic version. It is ALWAYS folded and mailed. Why would anyone go to the trouble to remove the folds to post it online? It would only call into question the authenticity of the document. The Decosta BC has...

  • How could American Oil Companies lower the price? Or Could they?

    05/22/2008 12:36:01 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 44 replies · 58+ views
    Could American Oil Companies lower the price of Oil, even if they wanted? The last figures I saw showed that American oil companies controlled 25% of the world market and 40% of the US Market. Let's say that under Congressional pressure all of America's oil companies got together and said they were going to sell their oil at $50 per barrel. What would happen? My thought is that the rest of the world would immediately buy up all their output to resell at the world price and then nothing else would change. Anyone have any other scenarios?

    A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big open mouthed kiss, then says she'll see him later and walks away. The wife glares at her husband and says, "Who the hell was that?" "Oh," replies the husband, "she's my mistress." "Well, that's the last straw," says the wife. "I've had enough, I want a divorce!" "I can understand that," replies her husband, "but remember, if we get a divorce it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris, no more...
  • What stuff do our soldiers want/need? (Vanity)

    What kind of different things do our soldiers in Iraq want/need? I've heard the following: Neutragena Skin Cream Beef Jerky Carmex Lip Balm Writing pads & pens Baby Wipes Is there a more complete list somewhere? Or can we start one here? Also, I've heard someone say they need postage stamps, but I thought mail from a war area went postage-free. Surely some Freeper has the info we need. Thanks
