Miranda IM-All In One Messenger

I download Miranda IM, which is a all in one IM. Meaning you don't need to download AIM,Yahoo,MSN or ICQ-which is a life saver for someone with dial up and is uses less hard drive space up.

I am liking it, its easy and quick. A very small file-1.47MB. So it is a pretty quick even on dial up(if you use vista- make sure you turn off any of your firewalls while downloading). I am loving it.

Download it now at Its FREE

Social Network That Pays!

Yuwie is a site like myspace,facebook,bebo and friendster-yet at the same time, it is not like them.

Myspace and others, make tons of money because of its memebers. Therefor they get to charge a lot for ads. But we the members, who helped make them rich, get zero! Well Yuwie is not like that, they share their earnings with their users. Nice, isn't it?

We can get a slice of the pie now, and dont need to help make myspace richer or any other social network site richier. Join Yuwie now and tell your friends!

A Great Tool

I have used this site more than once, and granted it could be better. But since it's free, I have nothing to complain about. It's called , they have two plans. One is free and the other is paid. I always go with the free one, but it's really up to you.

What I like about them is the fact that it's easy and all you do in return is post a small button on your site. Now I haven't used it on this site yet, but I will!

Check it out for yourself!

I have just joined this awesome site, and I want to share it with my lovely fans! Okay okay, enough about me and my big head ;D!

Ciao is a site where they pay you 1 dollar for every review and for rating of your review you also get paid. The beauty of this site is the fact that, you don't have to live in North America to join and get paid. They pay through paypal! And if that doesn't get your attention, then this will. Microsoft(Yes, the company behind big products like Windows,Xbox and Zune), has bought it. So I highly doubt that Bill Gates would want them to buy a bad scam site!

Join by clicking my banner below. And be my friend on it. Together, we can help each other make money!

I know you won't regret!

Long Time No See

Okay, I'll admit that I have been a bit lazy and bad when it comes to my blog here. Please do forgive me though! I have a damn good reason behind it. I have a freelance job! So I will try to do better on this blog.

So I'll give you a real post now.....

So I am still searching for people who'd like to swap links with me, the more backlinks the better. I will check to make sure that you linked to me, before I link back.

Other news, I posted a warning on my other tech blog about a time waster to gain more traffic, so check that out here

And I hope to have a better real post tomorrow for you!

Google Docs Are A Life Saver!

I know I have dissed Google tons on this blog, same for Apple. But today is Google's lucky day! I am going to give them a great review.

This past week, I was hired for a freelance job. A job that is a contract job, meaning that I sign the agreement with the owner. But instead of slow snail mail, they emailed it to me. Not bad, right? True, but it was in the Microsoft's .doc form. So I have Microsoft's Works and that won't read .doc files. So instead of download a bunch of freeware(later on, I ought to do a post about the wonderful world of freeware!) that might and might not work, I remembered hearing about Google Docs.

The beauty of it is this, you don't download any software, it's all browser based! Perfect for someone like me, with a slow and old fashion Internet connection. So I thought, well I really have nothing to lose trying it. And you know what? It worked like a charm. I was able to do it all, fill it out and save it to my hard drive, all being online and doing it in a browser based script!

So if you ever need to fix a file, use Google Docs, they will make you smile!

For All Of You Google Lovers!

You can now download a browser by google. If you don't know what a browser is, read about them here

It's called Chrome, and it's in BETA stage.

What they claim is, they took best parts from other web browsers and built them into Chrome.(Hmm....I feel a lawsuit coming on)

You can read about what they say here

I won't use it, I've had bad luck with Firefox, so I'll stick with IE thank you very much.

What about you?

A Question For My Readers......

What more types of blog post, would you like to see?

Answer soon!

Monday, September 1, 2008

A Few Side Notes....

My first is a question to my readers, would you like to see a whole website and not just a blog by me? And what I mean by a "whole website" is, it will have tons more than what my blogs just has and links to all that I write for. Of course if I do create a website, I wouldn't abandon my blogs by anymeans. It would be loads of fun for me to do, but my main issue is, would you even bother to read it and use it? I would most likely give out links and tips on how I do it and how to help market. Please be honest.

On to other things!

I just joined HubPages, and it sounds like fun! My only issue is, it's slow on my good ol' dial up connection. I hear it can help drive traffic to my site and I know people can stumble upon it pretty easy. I think it can be useful for everybody! Why I say that?
1-It's already got high traffic, and if you comment on other hubs, more people see your profile and thus far, they're likely to see your blog.
2-give out tips and help others. I'm sure you wished you knew what you know now, when you started!
3-You can join google adsesne,amazon and others and place you code and get paid that way.

So check out my hubpage and sign up today!

Pretty nifty, isn't it? ;)

Also, I am a VIP paid blogger, well at least at my new blog! So check it out, and if you'd like to try it yourself(they pay through check and paypal!) join now here

Also if you have any other clues on how to build traffic for your blog, feel welcomed to comment.

I have been a member for over a year with them, and though it's not great money, they do offer a marketplace.

What I like about Helium is that you can write articles and rate them, it's a community effort. Also the fact that they have a marketplace, where you can earn real money is good.

I have fun on that site, and I am just starting to use it again.

So join it, it can be loads of fun!

Random Fun

I like to keep things fun around here, so that means being random..... So this will be my first attempt at being random.

Quizzes are always fun, granted that they aren't stupid like "which harry potter character are you?".... How many of those can one have? So I will chose some of the best and post my results up and I hope you take them too!

Personality Type Quiz

You don’t really daydream or think about the future (unless you’re planning ahead, of course). Actually, you tend to find day-dreaming and flightiness pretty annoying and pointless. Sometimes people get you confused for being pessimistic, but you know that you’re just being real.

The Apple Has Already Been Bitten

So the third generation of the Iphone has come out, but what about the older generations(Same goes for the Ipods)?

Well refurbished Apple products seem to have found a home(or at least a new home). People are willing to buy used Iphones and Ipods, just because they are an Apple product. Apple being a "hot product" at the moment, meaning owning any generation of an Apple Ipod or Iphone, makes your "coolness" factor go up.

Kind of like a cult following.

Personally I could careless about Apple, I will never buy an Ipod or Iphone. And if that makes me uncool, then so be it.

Whats your opinion on used Apple products? Would you buy a used one?

Good AdSense-Why I Won't Use It

Some of you may know that I have another blog, while you others do not know that. I tried Google AdSense with it, and let me say that I wasn't pleased with it.

They claim that it match's your content, well not for me and a few others. What does teen pregnancy has to do with the war in Georgia? How on Earth do they come up with Papa John's, for a beauty blog? I mean, HELLO!

I tried to like Google AdSense, as I heard many "good" things about them. But, in the end I didn't feel like that they where a good match for my blog(s).

Now I am not saying that they don't work well for other people, I'm sure they do.

Wi-Fly Without Wi-Fi?

Delta and Continental have made plans to offer Wi-Fi on their domestic flights.
Delta plans on offering it on their whole fleet, by next summer. And Continental on most of their fleet by early next year.

Delta is teaming up with Aircell(an airborn communications provider) to install the network needed, so Wi-Fi enabled devices(ie:laptops, pds, smartphones and more) to connect to a broadband wireless internet connection. They're also looking into adding it on their flights for around the world.

Of course it won't be free, for 3 hour long or less flights they charge a $9.95 and for longer flights it will cost $12.95.

American Airlines, will offer the same service as Delta is planning too, later on this year. Only on 15 though, for their transcontinenal routes.

JetBlue offers FREE Wi-Fi on one plane, that flies transcontinenal as well. While US AirWays will offer it on a trial basis on one plane this fall.

So next time you fly, you maybe able to check out my blog!

15 year olds making money online? You better believe it!

Remember when you where in high school and middle school? How you always needed money to buy something you wanted, but Mommy and Daddy wouldn't buy it for you? So you relished the day, that by law you could work and get money, right?

Well people, wake up! It's the 21 century, and a new way of making money as appeared for kids under the age of 16.

Carl Ocab is a 15 year old boy, who is on a mission. A mission to make money online and then to show you how to make money online. Not bad just a 15 year old, right? But wait, it can only get more shocking!

He started it at the age of 13! Yes, he started making money and showing others how to as well!

If a kid can do it, why can't us adults?

His blog does have good tips and advice, I'd advise you to check it out at Carl Ocab

Hey Apple, move over! Dell is making a mp3 comeback that might make you grow moldy!

Okay, remember when Dell back 2003 came out with the Dell Dj? A hip mp3 player that made a splash even for a second?

I didn't think so.

But that's okay, cause Dell is making a comeback into the mp3 world with more than a simple mp3 player!

Apple's IPhone is over the $300.00 dollar limit that most people cannot afford, so a mp3 player with WI-FI that isn't over $200.00 dollars is lacking. But maybe starting in September, it won't be!

Dell has created a mp3 player that has WI-FI connection and a music subscription service to go with it, all for below $100.00 dollars doesn't sound so bad, eh?

You can read just what the CEO of Dell had to say here. It will make you smile!

Go Dell, and Apple go away!

New Series:Website Wednesday


I come with a new and first ever series on this blog, it's called Website Wednesday! Where every week(on Wednesday's if you guessed), I'll post a new website and review it for you my dear readers!

So on to the first post of my series!


Who doesn't like to make a little extra money(I know you do!)? We all can use it, even if the economy was doing good(which it isn't, if you haven't noticed). So I am sure that everybody thinks this sooner or later, "Gee, wouldn't it be nice to find a way to make a little extra cash?".

Mmhmm, I have been there. So you might get the idea one day to google the term "free money". Oh, now you wished you hadn't! Scams crawl all over the place like little bugs. Now you can't tell what is real and what isn't.

Such a shame, but their is a way to make "free" money. You don't need to spend a dime if you don't want to and all it really takes is time. But I am sure you already spend your time cleaning spam out of your email box.

This is where CashCrate comes in!

It's a PTC(paid to complete) that allows you to use old email address and get money for it. I have been paid by them, and many others have to. Just ask people at their active forums!

Tons are free! Meaning no need to spend a dime, just your time(cheezy, I know)! You can make money every month if you like too, darlings.

All you need is some time, old email address and multitasking skills. They do have ones that cost some money, but I avoid those at all cost. Just stick with the free ones, and you're set to make some money.

They send out checks every month, so no need to have a paypal or other crap like that.

What are you waiting for? Sign up now!

GIMP-Great OpenSource Freeware

So imagine this, you see all these pretty computer graphics and want to know how to make them. So you ask, you find out that they used some fancy expensive software. You know you don't have that kind of money to blow, so you search the Internet for days-maybe even months. What feels like forever, you find some free software, but like most-it is limited.

So this goes on for another 6 months, then you one day find a software that does all the fancy stuff, just like Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro. You think like a smarty pants would and say, "okay this does look great. but what is the price?". Then you search and you read the most amazing words one could see, "free".

Wait, don't rub your eyes. It is free. Don't check your heart rate or see if you're breathing, it is real.

If that's your story, then my friend- you are not alone!


Maybe it isn't so melodramatic(hey, we all need a laugh), but your search is finally over. I'll wait while you do you're chicken dance.


Well, you should be done dancing. Or at least I hope you should be ;)

But back to the real topic.

It's called the GIMP, a open source code that allows it to be free(what a beautiful thing that is, eh?)

It all started in 1995 by two guys, but is now ran by free volunteers. It is always being updated and is still being worked on. Every few months they come out with their latest version. It is multilingual and can be ran on cross-platform.

Perfect, right?

Wait, it can only get better here.

You can now use those nifty photoshop brushes with GIMP without converting them. A time and perhaps a life saver for those who are tech challenged.

But enough about what makes it great, don't take my word for it. Download it yourself and try it.

You can download the software here at

Download addition brushes to make your GIMP ever more effective at Deviant Art

Great site with an awesome forum to help you and learn how to use it for the better at Gimp Talk

Enjoy and big props to the people who made the GIMP happen.

Welcome New Readers!

This is my first real post, and I just thought it would be nice to introduce myself and yourselves. Just a little quick note before I'll begin, if you comment, I'll follow. I need one of those tags, don't I?

On to myself now

I am Miss Virtual Reality, if you haven't noticed. But I am also Artful Frog(that's the title of my other blog on here, it's political). I love all things tech and like to share my knowledge with everybody on the world wide web(isn't that great?) This blog will be used to share fun and new stuff in the world of technology. You never know what is next in this world. Think of it like a never ending ride at the amusement park! ;)

Anyways, so please feel free to tell me about yourself and your blog. Shameless self promotion is a must!

Back to regular broadcasting now....
