    Is the company name still The Fitness Doctors? The latest logo doesn't show this.

    Oh lala, if your summer is ending, that means my winter is ending.

    Amazing pirate mermaid wedding! I went to a pirate birthday party on a boat once but that doesn't even compare to a wedding....

    If it were me, I'd just write off all the work done so far as pro bono. Like several others already mentioned, I do all family work for free and if they want to pay me then that's an extra bonus.

    I had inlaws approach me for a logo and website. What a nightmare. They are a married professional couple and said "Of course we would pay you, $___ (an amount that barely covers 2 hours of work)...

  • My quest to find the holy iPod of Antioch.

    Ok. First off, this may be totally inappropriate so let me apologize in advance if that’s the case. If it is, then I throw myself upon thy graces mercy. Be gentle.

    A co-worker of mine came into work yesterday and said, “Check it, free iPods”. In the age of email that offers free pharmaceuticals, increased manhood, mail-order brides and horny housewives I was skeptical. But I went and looked at the site and these guys have been on wired.com and CNN. And it seems that there are success stories all over the internet (which could absolutely be fake. I could believe they spend all their time making up crap to make themselves look good. Farfetched, but believable). I am still skeptical but I’m going to try it. I'm also going to document my progress to see how it works.

    Does anyone want to help me out? I need to get 5 referrals to sign up and complete one of the offers (I signed up for the Real Rhapsody one. It costs $1 and I get 5 songs out of it). And if it turns out that they really send me an iPod, all you’d have to do to get yours is the 5 referrals part.

    So whaddya say? Please?

    ramsites.net/~libeycg/ipod/ (Updated and started a line.)

    My Quest Thus Far:
    8/20/04 - Signed up for Real Rhapsody and received credit for it at freeipods.com. Quest 1/2 complete.
    8/19/04 - Signed up at freeipods.com. Quest 1/4 complete.


    EDIT:

    Here's a couple of links to people who have done it.

    This is defiently a scam.

    Comon now. I hope you didn't give them a credit card or anything. Oh GOD!

      Nope! You don't give the free ipod-ians anything. But in order to complete an offer you gotta buy something (I think the real one is the cheapest @ $1). Well. If you have good credit you could do the credit card one and just not ever activate it I suppose. I didn't look at it cause my credit sucks.

            I know, right. That's why I want to test it. I did a google search and people all over other forums are doing the same thing I just did. :/ Guess I'm behind the times. Getting 5 referrals is going to be harder than I thought.

                it seems to be a complex scam. you know.. like how some insurance works.

                but there's this thing right now where you could bid the lowest for a product.
                but there's a few rules. you have to be only guy that bid that amount of money and you will be able to bid 5 times a month.
                and you need to pay them around 4/5 bucks per month for membership.

                yup its real. one of the guys got a creative zen for 14cents.

                  I got one of those emails about the free iPod - deleted it w/o reading it - probably afraid I'd get snookered if I did.

                  Here's what you do to get a free IPod Holliday. Earmark a complete job or small parts of several jobs for the iPod - essentially getting your clients to pay that little something extra toward your noble quest. Don't go to Gypsy hucksters when you can politely get a bit more back from your own clients - do what you must to justify it to whatever (if any) ethical structure by which you live and work. It's a business thing - give them a little something extra for the little bit of extra cash...
