First Adsense Cheque!

Friday, March 9th, 2007

Yesterday I received my first cheque from Google Adsense! It was for my December 2006/January 2007 earnings. The cheque is $139.48 US. Right now It’s looking like my next cheque will be double that. I plan to get them to directly deposit future payments into my bank account, when I get around to it.

I didn’t post any goals for this year on my blog, however one of my goals was to make $100 online a month. I have now surpassed that, and am making $10-13 a day approximately. My next goal is to make $400 online a month. To do this I will be creating more proxies, and creating a more structured proxy network, and perhaps advertise it. I will also set up some scripts to prevent people from clicking on my ads over and over again, trying to get me banned from Google Adsense.

Backtrack Version 2 released, out of beta

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Backtrack is my favorite linux livecd, and they have just released version 2.0. This version comes with many new features, and a lot of bug fixes. According to the developer, “…BackTrack v 2.0 Final is the leanest, mind blowing and sexiest version to come out and hope that you enjoy using it as much as we did making it.”

If you are interested in network security or penetration testing, I recommend you download it and try it out!

Procrastinating Methods

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Last night instead of studying for my cisco final exam, I found myself doing a variety of things to procrastine. I’ve compiled them into a list, just in case anyone needs any help procrastinating!

-Browse online forums, and catch up on the latest threads

-Read your RSS feeds

-Organize your hard drive and delete old files

-Defragment your hard drives (yes, all of them!)

-Burn old files to DVD/CDs

-Watch downloaded TV

-Discuss random things on irc

-Download more music!

-Organize your music library

-Digg

-Draw wierd pictures using the handwriting tool in MSN Messenger, and then send them to your friends

-Do cheap design/coding work for people on forums

-Cook something to eat

Hope this helps do stuff when you should be doing more important things! Although I doubt most people have trouble procrastinating by themselves.
