Estee Lauder set 2008-August

You can buy this totebag filled with Estee Lauder products for $33.50 with any Estee Lauder purchase (while supplies last)

Bill C-61 Copyright Bill will Negatively Impact our Education System

Bill C-61 Copyright Bill Goes Beyond Downloading. Help Protest it!

This article about Bill C-61 and how it threatens our universities was published in the Queen’s Journal. It’s a serious situation that can have grave consequences on our rights, universities and much more!

A proposed change to copyright law could change the way Canadians share media. It could also have a negative impact on the education system, said English professor Laura Murray.

An anti-circumvention clause in the bill would make it illegal to break digital locks on copyrighted material, nullifying the new allowances for most digital media.

Murray, also the author of the book Copyright: A Citizens Guide said, If passed, the bill could have a serious effect on Canadian universities.

“Decoding is being criminalized when there are a lot of legitimate purposes for it, especially regarding education,” she said.

How do you track your spending?


Financial micromanagement might not be for everyone, but sometimes it really helps to see where every penny is going.  You’d be amazed at how much you might spend on coffee or snacks.

In the past I’d used Excel to track my spending.  It might not have been the most simple form of tracking, but it was the most flexible in that (so long as you’re fairly competent with Excel) I could chart that data any way I wanted.

Still, there’s something to be said for simplicity.  Recently my family has tried to use the web-based  It provided a good set of features, but still didn’t work exactly as I’d wanted.  Up next we’re probably going to take a look at Wesabe or Yodlee MoneyCenter.

What about you?  How do you track your spending?

PuzzleQuest DS $4.99 at EB Games


Just a heads up, and YMMV, but reports are pouring in to CheapAssGamer that EB Games Canada has lowered it’s retail price on PuzzleQuest DS to $4.99, with used copies going for $2.99.  This is an amazing deal on one of the best games of the past few years.

PuzzleQuest is one of those games that appeals to just about everybody.  It takes the simple match-3 gameplay of Bejeweled and adds in a story, RPG-elements, and combat.  It truly is the best of both worlds.

Reports are also coming in that since the price drop it’s become nearly impossible to find.  I’d suggest calling to see if they have any in before hitting the road.  No word on whether or not the price has dropped  PuzzleQuest for other systems (it’s on every platform known to man).

Microsoft makes your Xbox 360 a little more Canadian, free of charge



Not too sure how this one flew under my radar for so long.  This past Canada Day Microsoft decided to treat Canadian gamers to some free gamerpics and themes to celebrate the holiday.  They’re pretty sharp, and who can disagree with the price of free?

Not too sure how long they’ll be available for, but they were still there at the time of this writing.  I’d hop on and grab them as soon as you get home.
