Pixies Playing At Jodrell Bank

Well I haven’t updated this blog for a long time! It was moved to write a little ditty because I saw that the Pixies are playing at Jodrell Bank in the UK this year (July??).

With all the Earth moving news of the extra-solar Trappist system and Pixies being, well, OUT OF THIS WORLD, it’s pretty fitting.

I know there’s still a lot of ballache around Kim leaving and whether Paz can pull things off to the same degree but HEY! she’s just great.

Really looking forward to getting my eye in on that major telescope while I’m there haha!

Good Phone Tracking Sites

When looking for a good phone tracking software and websites you need to think about 3 key points that you will want from the software once you eventually download it.

The Lowdown: Good Phone Tracking Software And Websites

One of the first things you’ll need to think about is cost. The costs out there vary, yet some of the tracking softwares are much better value-for-money than others. There are a whole host of scammy rip-off merchants out there that will sell you a duff piece of software – and don’t expect to get a refund. Half the time the company details will be false and you’ll have a heck of a time tracking down where your cash has gone. So along with cost variations you also need to consider how reputable the company is. There are a number of reputable companies selling this kind of software and you’ll find a couple by following the links in this post. By the way, you can quite often tell the legitimacy of a company by its website quality and by checking that the contact information does actually check out.

So, what’s the best phone tracking software?

Another thing to consider when searching for a good phone tracking software on a reputable website is exactly what you want the software to do. If you want to listen in to live phone calls then you are going to have to pay a lot more than if you simply want to track the text messages or even track the person who is using the phone by tracking online maps. There is actually a very good company that sells good phone tracking software at the following website and it has some excellent features such as text sms recording, geographical tracking by using the GPS system in the phone – you can also see what the person is doing online on the phone as well as see any photos or pics exchanged on the cell phone. For $50 this is a superb top-shelf piece of software that gets excellent results and is available for almost any modern smart phone.

Looking For Good Phone Tracking Software and Websites?

That brings me onto the final criteria for selecting a good phone tracking software as their website will show you; compatibility and updates. Just click through and check the compatibility of the software with the phone that you want to target. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a phone that it doesn’t work on. Because they are a solid company with good reputation, they can afford to keep the best tracking software updated and make it available for all the basic platforms such as Blackberry, Symbian, iPhone, Android and Windows phones. The software works well and many folks get what they need from it without having to resort to the more expensive type that allows you to listen in live. Can you imagine the power of having access to somebody’s text messages (even the one’s that they think they are cleverly deleting!)? You’ll soon get to the bottom of whatever it is that you are trying to find out about them. And just think of the advantage of knowing exactly where they are when they have said that they are going to be someplace else! Many people have found out their partner’s true intentions with this killer combination of text message spying and location tracking. Forget paying $300 for the live phone call bugging, this combo gets you exactly what you need to know for one sixth of the price.

Those are 3 of the basic criteria that will help you find good phone tracking software and you’ll see by their websites, customer testimonials, professionalism and reputation that they are not going to rip you off. Indeed, the companies at the end of these links will provide no-questions-asked refunds promptly if you are not completely satisfied by what they provide. They’ll also provide discreet, secure and varied payment options and excellent customer service. For good phone tracking software and websites you cannot go wrong with these two!



Inflatable Dinosaurs and Chocolate Proffered to Sway Judges

Simon Schwart loves this time of year.

That’s because he belongs to the Software Publishers Association (SPA), which next week will hand out its annual ”Excellence in Software” awards. And Schwartz, like the other 487 association members, gets to vote.

That means he gets free stuff — posters, mugs, inflatable dinosaurs, toys, videocassettes, CDs, tapes, chocolates, software. Each spring, all this and more comes streaming through the mail from companies lobbying for SPA votes.
”Some people are bothered by it, but there’s nothing wrong with it,” Schwartz said. ”It’s the only way to find out about some of these products.”

Game developers are the heaviest promoters. ”It’s a very serious thing for us,” said Charlotte Taylor, a spokeswoman for game developer Sega. in San Jose, Calif. ”The SPA awards are like the Oscars.”

Like the Oscar award, an SPA prize is worth money. ”If a customer sees five similar products and one says, ‘Best Product of the Year, SPA’ . . . he’s more likely to pick that one up,” Taylor said.

So companies spend thousands of dollars on promotions. ”There are so many products nominated, and there are so many SPA members, that what you’re trying to do is flag somebody’s attention,” said Les Crane, chairman of The Software Toolworks Inc., a game-software maker based in Chatsworth, Calif. Crane’s firm flagged attention by promoting Life & Death, its surgery game, with a white-chocolate brain.

Most other nominees ran similar, if less gory, campaigns. There are about 50 prizes, with five nominees for each, so judges end up swamped. ”My mailman complains,” said Jeff Tarter, editor of Soft — Letter, an industry newsletter published in Cambridge, Mass. ”But I got a lot of nifty software, particularly games.”

Game developers run the most extravagant campaigns, but business-software developers lobby, too. Even IBM sent a letter to judges seeking votes for two of its educational packages that are up for awards.

Symantec Corp., of Cupertino, Calif., with five products up for 10 awards, sent out a poster headlined ”Symantec Blows Its Own Horn.” Said company spokeswoman Loretta Wagner, ”If you really think you’re that good, then show it.”

The nominees must believe in themselves, since most nominate their own wares in the first place. Under SPA awards rules, developers pay $50 to nominate one product for one award, then $100 for each additional nomination. A preliminary round of voting whittles the ranks of nominees to five finalists per category; winners are determined in a second round.

This year’s awards will be handed out at a May 24 black-tie reception in San Diego.
Some companies, such as Microsoft Corp., Adobe Systems Inc. and WordPerfect Corp., don’t lobby at all. ”We think that’s sleazy,” said one company spokesman who asked not to be named. But they do brag if they win. Microsoft and Adobe tout past awards on their packaging.

Schwartz, twice a winner for business-applications software, testifies to the selling power of SPA prizes. ”I’ve used it a few times to close a sale,” he said.

Looking For Love Not Sex

I don’t think I’ve ever talked about this before, but I need to get this out. I was in a relationship with a man who was very handsome and charming, but he turned out to be a nightmare and I had to get out. Now I am back in the Midwest and trying to find my path in life.

Sex doesn't make a relationship

Sex Isn’t Everything

I feel a lot of anxiety right now; I did meet someone else, but I dismissed him because he didn’t seem all that interested. I want to get out and meet people, make friends, be normal, but I can’t bring myself to go out, to leave my house.

So I meet people online, but I can’t bring myself to meet them in person. I want to get back out there, but I can’t change or compromise my position and my views on sexual relations; it’s hard to get anyone to understand that it isn’t the sex that is the problem. I just can’t bear to lie down with a man knowing that he isn’t in love with me and doesn’t love me and/or there is no future. It’s the one thing that stops me from getting too close to anyone.

What I am wondering right now is should I change my position so I can meet someone? Am I really that out of touch with the standards of today? I know I’m not the kind of person to get physical just for the hell of it, and I don’t want to be a one-night stand, so what do I do? All I do know is if I keep on doing what I’m doing, I’m going to keep on getting what I’ve gotten, so a change has to be made somewhere. I just don’t know where or what needs to change. Should I be like everyone else? Or should I stick to my guns?

I’m asking for help here because I keep getting the same thing from different men. So many of them won’t give me a pass because their greatest fear is ending up in a sexless relationship/marriage, even though that wouldn’t be the case. I just don’t want to end up being used. I want to be loved and I don’t think these men understand or realize that sex and love aren’t the same thing because you can have one without the other and just because he’s having sex with me doesn’t mean he loves me or wants a future with me and I cannot settle for anything less than what I want. Is that being selfish on my part?
