Unlimited hosting does not exist

Web hosting is very important if you want to get a website hosting as it is this that allows people to host a website in the first place. Many years ago you was able to get a web host for about £5 a month which given you something like 500MB hard drive space and maybe 2GB data transfer.

Over the years that bandwidth and hardware got cheaper and cheaper and it got to a point in which people started to offer things like 10GB hard drive space, 100GB data transfer for around the same price of £5 a month.

However it did not stop then. Finally some people started to offer unlimited web hosting. Basically what this means is you can use as much data transfer you like, hard drive space you like for just a low price of something like £3 a month (I am sure if you shop around, you can find it for $1.00 a year).

If life was like a RPG

I am sure that most people on Tweaked for your Pleasure have played a role-playing game but have you ever stopped to think what life would actually be like if we actually lived in a RPG style game. Well, I did today and this is what I came up with…

In the morning you would wake up and then decide what clothes you want to wear. There would be a few factors to decide would not really be much about fashion as no one in this world would be more important than you in any way shape or form but also you would think how much defense and other stats it would give you. Once you have decided you would go downstairs.

Stealing content online

As you may know, I have a public email floating around that people can contact me using regardless of how often I actually check it but I saw a message which made me think a tiny bit. It went as following.

Hi Snat

i am trying to block the ad on your website but when I do so no youtube video works on this website. can you help me ?

That e-mail made me think. In a way, this user is actually stealing from me. Think about it for a minute. I use Google Adsense to fund the hosting that Tweaked for your Pleasure uses and that by using this website you agree that you will view the ads. Now I do not mean you have to actually visit those websites but I just mean that they have to be on the website.

Tis is the season … of gift voucher

Ahh yes, December the time in which everyone does the very last of their Hanukkah/Christmas/Whatever shopping. Sure, there are tons of great stuff you can buy at very low cost and that is may many do leave it until the end but naturally there is always that one person you can never remember and at the last day you remember that they exist and even worst, they gotten you something (or they are a child or something and you just have to buy them something for the sake of it).

  • Do not bother
  • Get that "last" minute gift

Do not bother

The first one is that you can just go "oh well" and then just don’t bother with this. When you do this, people tend to just moan at you or something like that and then for the next few months you are known as the person whom didn’t get that person something. Sure that isn’t a bad thing but not everyone likes being known like that. While children do tend to forget about it quickly, they are also the ones that don’t understand. But lets say for a few minutes that you didn’t get them something because you simply didn’t have any money to do so. Adults (well, most but not all) will understand and wouldn’t expect anything in return but merely to offer joy (one of the meanings of Christmas) but children do not understand.

Most children do not understand about money. In the research I have done, most children believes that that money "just comes out the hole in the wall" and unless taught at an very early age, a lot of these children will grow up believe money will just come to them and we have all seen what happens. But going back a bit, even if you just forgot about it that the children will still cry about it as they always think it is about them but anyway children isn’t the point of this article.

So if not bothering isn’t your thing, then there is one more option that never fails which now leads me too…

Get that "last" minute gift

I am sure we all know those shops that are always open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year and they always seem to sell those little toys for a couple of pounds. For children that are not your own, these tends to do (coming from experience) but children belongs to you or children that are children of family friends always seems to want that "one big gift" that cost always seems to go up each year. But for adults, they are always happy to just get something that they can unwrap.

So which leads me onto what both adults and children likes – gift vouchers. Children loves them because they are able to buy something that they want such as a game or something and adults love them because they can spend it on something they actually like. Gift vouchers also helps because it stops the likes of people going in a few days later returning that gift they didn’t like but just nodded because they had to be polite.

Also, with the e-vouchers becoming very well known with companies like Apple and Amazon, it got to the stage where what people actually want – you can just click and order online and get within a few minutes which you can then often print out or e-mail.

Sure, it defeats the feel of surprise but to be honest, it is only children that tends to like that but on the other hand, they tend to already know because they told Santa 😉

This article is NOT RELATED to me trying to order a Amazon Gift Voucher last night for a gift for a female whom name I have used so many times in Tweaked for your Pleasure in quite a few "bad ways" I am surprised she even still says hi to me !

Amazing how the world hasn’t changed

The media always is telling us about bad things to come. They are always telling us that the end is coming due to certain reasons such as terrorists, bioweapons, nuclear weapons, Bush but the fact a lot of people do not seem to understand is that they ALWAYS been saying that. The media makes it money by staring people. Lets be honest here. If I published a newspaper or a website that said cute kittens was found safe after having a bath and now smell nice, that you would not really give a fuck. You may go aww or something but you will not care. However if I do the same and say”cute kittens creates a biological organic weapon (BOW) and says will issue a nuclear strike to the USA within days” you would say oh my god and get worried about it.
