Paid to Review

Ronnie, over at has talked about PayPerPost. and I agree that it is an interesting idea but as Ronnie says I don't like how you have to put the product in a given light. If I don't like the product I don't want to give it a good review. Thats not to say that I would be mean and harsh but if I don't feel I can recommend something then I don't want to recommend it just because someone is paying me to.

Then I found this is something that I will look into. This is right from thier info page:

"You write the review in your own tone, and can be as critical as needed. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but rude or hateful reviews will be declined."

See this is the way to attracted a good readership. Write what needs to be said about the product but don't go overboard. No one likes to see something bashed.

Now I am just waiting for Precia, she should be home soon, she had to play at Graduation today for some kids that will be singing. I hope she is having a good time. Until then, mor

Create a SHA1 hash of a string

This function will take a string and return the hashed value using System.Security.Cryptography; public static string GetSha1(string value) { var data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(value); var hashData = new SHA1Managed().ComputeHash(data); var hash = string.Empty; foreach (var b in hashData) hash += b.ToString("X2"); return hash; } Thanks to Lars-Erik
