I won a book, I think

It looks as though I won a book from Dave Marshall. He held a contest whereby you could sign up for the feed for his php jobs site and win the Php|architect's PHP Job Hunter's Handbook.

I know it's stupid but I didn't realize his site was based in the UK and not in the US where I am. But looking at what he's doing with his site got me interested in making my own phppositions site. What it is is a learning process for him to learn the Zend Framework. That works out for me because I am interested in learning about the Zend Framework as well. We'll just have to see if I decide to go through with it.

And thanks to Dave Marshall.

Reprint: The Fall of GM - a visual guide

I found this from the businesspundit blog. It just so happens to be a very good explanation.

Swagbucks search and win?

Today my wife found a site that you can supposedly search and win prizes. It's called Swagbucks. There are actually some good prizes on the site but I am not sure yet how many points you can get every day. One of the tips is to search as you would normally search.

So far we've only gotten 8 swagbucks (including the 3 that registering gives you) and a $5 amazon gift certificate is 45. If you want to sign up, click the banner and you can sign up using my wife as the referrer. I guess we get a swagbuck for everyone who signs up.
