The Beauty of RSS

12 Jun

Have you ever come across a blog or news site that you wanted to keep up with, and you just made a mental note to return later? Maybe you bookmark it, maybe you don’t, and sometimes you just plain forget how to get back there, or forget to check back, and you miss out on stuff. There’s a simple technology called RSS that makes all of this easy … and will allow you to keep up on my blog, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

Poker School

12 Jun

As mentioned previously, I have been playing a lot of poker. I went through plenty of ups and downs in terms of bankroll, but in the end, I always came out as a loser by the end of the month. Clearly, I need more practice. The trouble is that people playing on the “play money” tables don’t play real poker… they play a game called “re-raise to the river, hope to get lucky, and ask for more chips when I lose”. That’s no way to learn poker.
Then, I found Poker School Online. For $15/month (actually, I immediately upgraded to an annual membership for $150) I get to play on “play money” tables with people that are playing as if it’s real money. Everyone there fiercely protects their bankroll. There are a lot of poker lessons on the site, very informative forums, and decent software (though they need a decent web design guy!). I like it. And, it limits my losses to just $150/year 🙂
If you check it out and decide to join, please use this link … I get referral credit. Good luck!
