Glassware can get pretty expensive especially if you’re in college and always getting sht faced and breaking your glasses. Start just using your empty beer bottles and turning them into your new glasses. Look dope, easy to make and cheap! Follow these 5 easy steps.
Step 1 – Grab a beer bottle preferably with thick glass such as corona bottles. Tie a string just above the label on the empty bottle
Step 2 – Keep the string tied and soak it in lighter fluid.
Step 3 – Put the string back on the bottle and hold it horizontally. Light the sting rotating the bottle so the flame spreads. You should hear the bottle crack slightly in about 10 seconds.
Step 4 – After you hear the crack, pour cold water on the string and the top of the bottle will fall off.
Step 5 – Now grab sandpaper and sand the edges of the bottle till it is smooth.
So useful to know!
Yahoo has decided to release some of its premium domain names to the public through an auction at Sedo…
Yahoo!’s Domainapalooza (link updated Nov 16th)
This premium domain name portfolio auction started today, November 14th, and runs to November 21st, 2013. Although there are quite a few names that I feel are not very good (especially for the reserve price indicated), there are some great domains in the bunch…
- BlogsPort.com (or brand it as BlogSport.com)
Some of these names may seem a bit random, such as MYM.com, but if you took a look at it from Yahoo’s perspective it may have been intended to become the shortcut to my.yahoo.com/mail or something. Still, it could become My Mail or My Messenger to the right party looking to develop the name.
Some of the names will require some development, but that is normal for any domain name.
Now, please note that the above list is merely an extremely small sampling of some of the best domain names in the Yahoo Domainapalooza premium domain portfolio auction. But that portfolio is listing over 500 names on its first day, and Yahoo! also indicates that it will also be adding even more domain names throughout the auction. So, be sure to come back and view this list each day as it develops.
It is easy to see there are some great names, here. There are also some stiff reserves, but I would expect many to meet the reserve. Others, not so much. But as an example, I fully expect AV.com to be sold for millions as a two letter domain name that spells out Audio/Visual or Audio/Video… in two simple easy-to-remember letters, it defines an entire industry of presentation and commercial production. That said, it can even be redefined in a number of interesting ways, though that would be a greater task since the A/V theme is an iconic reference from before high school.
Can you walk away with a great brandable domain name that you could develop into a profitable website or business? Very likely, considering the quality of some of these names. Especially with names that have an excellent second meaning. For instance, even though winter is coming and sled would make a great name to sell winter snow sleds, “sled” is often how I refer to older muscle cars that had great power but lacked the handling of a sports car. These beasts will never have sports car handling because they double as grocery-getters and transportation to work. And if you are into muscle cars like I am you would see the opportunity in that street rod slang name.
With Freeby.com/.net you could redefine the free give-away industry to become a leader in helpful, non-obtrusive marketing. There is so much potential in this list of premium brand names.
As of this writing, there are 517 domain names available for auction and with Yahoo still planning to add even more to this list, this may become the most watched premium domain name portfolio auction in history. Because some of these names do seem to be affordable for us little guys to get in on.
Happy domaining! I hope there will be many domainers taking advantage of this opportunity to add to their portfolio and domainate the market with domainating names. ;)

Women darken their eye sockets and underneath their cheeks and it looks more like skull bone protruding zombies to artists because it just emphasizes the structure of the bones we look for underneath the layers of muscles and skin.
It’s what we draw/paint and when the girls come out wearing it already it makes it even more difficult to not see them as living corpses. Nice lips, though.
I just think she would look better without all the make up, myself.
The W3N.US Short URL Tool is now online. You can now define any unused vanity or custom keyword after the http://w3n.us/ address to create a short URL that you can easily remember. Furthermore, you can even keep track of the stats for the short URL.
I hope this might prove useful to someone other than Myself. ;)

Although I have a lot of redesigning left to do, today I was able to upgrade my old static font-Journal to a much more dynamic system. There are over 12,000 fonts there online and font previews are dynamically generated (and cashed). You can specify custom text to sample the font in, comment on fonts, rate the fonts and of course, download the fonts.
I am currently deleting fonts that aren’t very useful (only caps, etc.), so if you see anything I miss, let me know and I’ll be happy to deactivate any incomplete font that just isn’t up-to-par in the design department (I do have a few fonts that are only displaying characters in caps and require the user to use uppercase, but they are unique and might be of interest).
All fonts are free for personal use, some may require a shareware fee for commercial use. Please check the read-me or any text file associated with the archive for license information.
