So, my mom and Ken have been watching way too much TLC and are now, in their own minds, couponing bandits. They’re like Mister Toad, going from one mania to the next and annoying the heck out of the rest of us. And, right now, the mania is couponing. They call me now and then to bother me about coupons, but I suppose their bothering me about coupons is better than the last mania they bothered me about, which was stevia, lol!
I keep telling them that they’re missing out, clipping coupons when they could so easily be searching for better, easier to use coupons online.
For example, I’m a long-time fan of VistaPrint. I first used the site years ago, when I nabbed a free coffee mug for nothing but the shipping and handling charges (which were cheap, by the way), and now and then I go to check them out to see what new deals they have.
Until today, though, I’ve never checked out BestOnlineCoupons.com, or any coupon code site, looking for coupons for VistaPrint. I didn’t even realize that VistaPrint accepted coupons! That almost doesn’t make any sense, though, since they don’t charge enough for their services to really warrant coupons, but I’m cheap and I’ll take what I can get.
So, I did a search on BestOnlineCoupons for Vistaprint coupon codes 2013, and found a good amount of coupons for free shipping, 25% off, etc. that I definitely need to try. But then I expanded my search and found out that there are coupons for my mom and Ken, since they’re big Target and Walmart shoppers and several coupons exist on the site for all manner of discounts from super stores.
It wasn’t hard to find a coupon code February 2013 for my absolute favorite product, ever, which is domain names – yes, I am a domain name addict! I’m generally not a fan of GoDaddy, but at prices like $7.49 for a renewal, or a new domain, or 10% off coupons it’s easy for me to overlook some of the issues I’ve had with them in the past. I’m blinded by coupon greed!

As you probably know, I live in perpetual 1940 when it comes to my hair, makeup and fashion. My lipsticks are all spice and red shades, my nails are red, my hair is fingerwaved or pincurled any time I go out. I live in dresses, my face is always made up. I have 70 year old mirrored compacts, bakelite and lucite jewelry, and I'm saving up to replace my worn out saddle oxfords that I go everywhere in when I'm in casual clothes. Basically, leggings just don't fit my style.

Okay, I said the last post would be my last of the year, but I lied – but, in my defense, I did plan not to post anything else since I’ve got somewhere to be.
I’m sitting here, watching Once Upon A Time (that show’s awful, but the review will come later) and messing around at DealDash while I wait for my ride.
I’ve heard of it before, but it’s been awhile since I’ve checked out Deal Dash, and probably awhile since you’ve heard me talk about anything like it.
I’m actually quite fond of penny auctions, not just to buy things (I don’t believe I’ve ever bought something that way), but I like to play at them for fun. Well, I just finished reading this DealDash Review and they pointed out that DealDash is actually a penny auction with 1.5 million shoppers. – a concept which, even though it’s obvious to me now, eluded me because I’m so used to penny auctions ending with you losing the money you spent on bids.
The difference between DealDash and your run-of-the-mill penny auction site, other than the free shipping (which is tubular, since I hate shipping fees on account of my being super poor, lol), there’s also a buy it now option. If you lose your auction, you can buy the item at it’s usual price (so there’s no real risk that you won’t get what you want so long as you’re willing to pay for it – which I love), but if you do buy your item you get a full refund on all those little bids you spent trying to get it for a deal. How cool is that?
Okay, I have to go paint my nails and watch the rest of this horrid show. If someone manages to win a DealDash (or finds a fun site for me to check out), let me know — Happy New Year!!

As I’m sure you noticed, for about two days BSNET was flagged for malware by Google. Obviously, it’s all back to normal but I’m still cleaning up the handiwork of a pretty ridiculously destructive hacking. The mode of hack was simple enough, somehow they got into my cPanel and uploaded file that changed the htaccess file in every directory, or uploaded a new one, that redirected to a site that was distributing the malware.
When I started fixing it, I asked a friend of mine if he had any idea how it could have happened – since I’m quite careful with my information, even when I’m not connected to the internet. He then asked me if I’d ever considered using an ad blocker software to keep me from accidentally loading ads that may download malware or viruses onto my computer.
Of course I do, I have a combination of popup blocker (which generally does the trick) and two different flash and banner blockers to cover those ads and even stop Youtube videos from automatically loading.
He said I should have been fine, and then asked – suddenly – if I watch any videos on Facebook. That was probably the thing that did it, because I’m not opposed to a funny political cartoon now and then. I’m thinking of looking into a new adblocker system like Adguard that has pretty much only one function – to keep the user away from malicious content and phishing websites that can hijack their computers. They do it via blocking unwanted ads, which is what I thought I was doing. Trust me, you want to really look at what you’re doing online!
No more Facebook videos for me. :/
