I apologize for the sever lack of posts in the past two weeks. The past few weeks I have been busy with a number of things:
1. School - I just finished my second final and I have just one more left on Friday. I can't wait for it to be done. This semester went by really fast but at the same time I am ready to be done with these classes and move on.
2. Launching of a new website - My friend and myself launched our first joint venture last Friday. The site is Minnesota Casino Index - http://www.mncasinoindex.com/ It is not done (the about and contact buttons do not work just to warn you, but that will be fixed soon). We have been working on this idea for a website that indexes casinos (and doesn't suck...as every single other one we have run across does). Our next project is the launch of http://www.usacasinoindex.com/, it's going to be great!
3. Online Poker - My friend Judd who writes at hanging on to nothing (check it out) told me about a new sit and go offered by pokerstars called double or nothing sngs. Basically, ten people buy in, and when there are only five left, the game is over. The top five each get twice their buy in. So naturally I thought "wow that sounds amazing!" and started to play a bunch. My goal was to run at 60% or higher. Each sit and go costs .20 to buy in, so for each 100 you play you have to count 4 as simply lost. So to get that 60%, I actually have to win 60/96. I am running right around there, with 6 left to get to 96. I need to win 4/6 to reach my goal, so hopefully I can get it done!
With all that being said, I will definitely be posting more often as time frees up. One thing in particular that I will be working on is a letter to B.J. Lawson (Republican Nominee for North Carolina's 4th District, nicknamed "Ron Paul Jr.") laying out the reasons why I think he should run again in 2010. My friend James who writes at Dinks Finance told me that he was emailing with Ron Paul's press secretary and he thinks B.J. is a strong candidate and should run again. He is a candidate that anyone who loves liberty can get excited about and I hope he makes another run at it.
