NoMoreRack.com SUCKS – Do Not Order from No More Rack

If you want cheap crap that takes over 30 days to receive NoMoreRack.com is your place.

I’ve only placed 2 orders with them – both were terrible experiences.

Both took almost 6 weeks to arrive. My first order was for what was advertised as iPad charging cables. Problem is – THEY DON’T CHARGE the iPad!!! So, that’s a small problem.

Second order was for Hello Kitty hair clips for my daughter. Just over 30 days later, what should arrive but imitation wanna be Barbie like doll hair clips. So it took them a month to send me the wrong product. Hey, it happens I supposed. So I emailed their customer service this time. Their response was terrible. Basically the told me that I could return the product if I didn’t like it at my expense. So let me get this straight – they send the wrong product, and I have to pay to return it?? And no offer to send the right product.
I followed up by email explaining that I didn’t think I should have to send back the wrong product at my expense and I wanted what I ordered and would return what was sent with a prepaid shipping label. No response.
2 subsequent emails – no response.

Disney World Crowd Calendar 2012 – Disney World Planning

Filed under: Disney — Tags: , , , — Scott @

Back again with my 2012 Disney Crowd Calendar broken down by week.  This utilizing the data from the fantastic website TouringPlans.com but organized how I use it that I thought you might find helpful.  I’ve created estimated crowds by week.  This year both Saturday – Saturday weeks and Friday – Sunday weeks.  This way, at a glance I can see what weeks are least busy, or at least should be less busy than other weeks.  If you’d like to see what the calendar looked like for crowds last year see my 2011 crowd calendar.

Do I Need a New Hobby? Maybe Woodworking….

Filed under: Random Stuff — Tags: , , , — Scott @

Between work, extra work, family and sleep it’s tough to have time for too many hobbies.  Which is okay of course.  But maybe I need a new hobby….

A long time ago I collected baseball cards, but didn’t all kids?  Then I turned it into a small side business, then a job for a few years but now – years later the industry is very different and I just have the interest anymore.  Plus, one big factor for me in thinking about a new hobby is something I can do with my kids and my son isn’t a huge sports fan so baseball cards doesn’t seem like a great option at this age.

Disney World Crowd Calendar 2011 – Disney World Planning

Filed under: Places,Random Stuff — Tags: , , , — Scott @

I am a huge fan of Disney World and a huge fan of the Touring Plans Crowd Calendar; heck I’m a huge fan of everything Touring Plans has to offer.  Planning a potential upcoming trip I decided to look at the numbers how I need them.  Basically Saturday – Saturday (although now thinking why not add a night and go Saturday – Sunday, but for now this data is Sat – Sat) for the entire year.  So here’s a quick look at what I found and how I did it.  I put all the crowd calendar numbers for 2011, except the first week because I started late and didn’t go back and fix it, into a spreadsheet.  Then I totaled the crowd level number for the 8 days from all Saturday to Saturdays for the year.  So of course, the lower the number the less the crowds across all 8 days.  I then made a few charts to represent this, now I’m sharing.

T-Mobile G2 by HTC in my hands for 18 hours compare to Nexus One and G1

Filed under: Random Stuff — Tags: , , , , — Scott @

Just got my T-Mobile G2!!!

A quick bit of background.  I had a G1 very early on – pre-ordered and got pretty quickly.  This replaced by Blackberry (which had replaced my Palm) and I absolutely loved my G1.  When the Nexus One came out – again, I jumped on it quickly.  Ordered within minutes of availability and got it very quickly.  LOVED IT!  But…it had issues:  wouldn’t hold WiFi signal at home (well documented issue on forums), battery life is not good at all, and my top button has now died.  Froyo was like getting an entirely new phone – the speed boost was amazing!
