Personally, I always enjoy a good play on words, even if it gets me slapped.

I like the word play, too, but you can have the actual slaps. Virtual slaps I can handle, but I try to avoid pain - or anything that will leave a mark.

Probably not going to win, but heck, might as well try

I'm Giving Away The First Amazon Kindle Fire EVER!

Yes, I really ordered 5 Amazon Kindle Fire tablets like 1 minute after the pre-orders opened up on Amazon. http://geekbeat.tv/fire

Some of the Livid Lobsters at our office were all like, "Why did you need 5 of these?" And I was all like, "I don't know! But I'll find a use for them!" And they were all like, "You should give some away, as you are often want to do!" And I was all like, "That's a swell idea!" and "You don't have to talk in old English."

So, here's the deal. I'm going to give away ONE of the new Amazon Kindle Fire tablets to someone who has me in a Circle here on Google+. There are only three requirements:

1) You have to be in the USA. Sorry, but shipping is nearly impossible outside the states. :-(

2) Do you have me in one of your circles? Great. You're golden.

3) SHARE this post to let other's in on the chance to win one as well.

I might possibly give another one or two away later, depending on how this goes. Stay tuned and we'll see.

Good luck!

I figured since the flood gates were opened, here is a nice guide, heck, I've been using it for a month and some of these things helped me. Thanks to +Denis Labelle for getting it together.

Ok, so i see that for some strange reason i am being added by people. Just to let you guys know I am a recent graduate with a Bachelors in Information systems. Unfortunately the area I live in is devoid of opportunities, so I have turned to the internet in order to gain experience on how to program. I currently do not post much, though starting November I will be starting a project to update at least once a day. Mostly i post just based on opinion, or if anything catches my eye I will reshare.

Have a great day guys.

Ok GPlusers. Ive seen those "30 days" picture projects on Facebook and figured that it takes a good amount of motivation to keep them going, and thus thought it would be a good idea to try one. But then I realized that I hate taking pictures, and seeing how I work full time in something resembling a cubicle there probably would not be that great variety. So I decided that I would take a different route. Instead of boring pictures, i would do what i shall title : "30 days Of Blogging". This plan is to post something new every day for 30 days.; Now the issue becomes I really can't think of enough topics to write about for 30 days. And that's where u fellow Googlers come into play.

Throw me ideas. I'm not saying I will use all of them, mostly because knowing you douche-nozzles I predict a lot of penis jokes. But any ideas that come out of it will be helpful never the less. So feel free to ask your friends, or if there is something you want to see what my opinion is about something go ahead and comment.

Also, please do not be vague. Religion is waaaaaay too big. Instead, ideas like Was Jesus Black? or a woman? things like that.

Lastly, I apologize beforehand. In the small chance i actually pull this shit off, I'm pretty certain the quality and language of my work will considerably diminish as time goes on. So pretty much when that point comes along, just bear with it.

Lastly Lastly, I know many of you do not know me, and this is my attempt at looking at what life as a blogger is, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. As I said, i want to do this and the more ideas I have the better it will be.

I will be posting each new post through here, but the actual posts themselves will be on http://you-anger-me.blogspot.com/ (which is my newly posted blog)

Addendum: Este proyecto es una idea que tuve, y necesito temas de que escribir, asi que cualquier tema que tengan (asi sea en español) seria muy buena.

Thanks a lot for any suggestions

By the by, i know most of the people i follow here relate in some way shape or form to tech, so please have in mind Im just a poor recent grad that lives in the midwest, and thus I will try my best to keep up with current news, but it will be challenging.
