Q: Why Do I Have To Use The Trackback URL instead of a normal URL for blog posts.

A: I don’t no why. I have debugged and looked through the code but it seems that you have to use the Trackback URL to get properly credited. Its weird and I don’t know why it happens like that.

Q: What Does duzi Stand For?

A: Duzi stands for “Download, Unzip, Install” I was fed up of saying that sentence in every post where I mention an application. So I made a word up. It was going to be DUI, but that stands for drunk driving and it wouldn’t blend well.

Q: Why Don’t You Do The Latest News?

A: Simply because other bigger websites, with hundreds of authors can cover news quicker than me. My one man band can’t keep up so I don’t bother.

Contest Questions

Q: How Are Your Contests Run?

A: Contests are usually run in the following method: I set up a post detailing the competition. I then ask you to do something and leave a comment. Your comment is then an entry into the prize draw. Comments will then be filtered to make sure they are accurate to the competition and not spam.

Q: How Do You Pick A Winner?

A: Winners are either picked at random from Random.org, your comment number will correspond to a number picked on the list. As well as this winners are also picked by hand. This depends on the competition at hand and is explained in the post.

Q: What Happens If?

A: If there is any problems I hold the right to be the final judge. You can spell your out your case if you have a problem I will listen.

Q: How Long Do Contests Last?

A: Contests last between a week and two weeks. Contests will rarely last longer than 2 weeks. Every so often there may be a quick competition that lasts only 2 days but these are rare.

Q: Can I Hold A Contest With You?

Q: Why Do You Sell Advertisements

A: I sell advertisements to enable me to buy hosting and continue to post.

Q: Why Do You Do Affiliate Links?

Comments

A: Comments will be deleted as soon as I notice them. The IP address will then be noted and if the offense happens again it will be but on the IP ban list, you will then be unable to comment.

Q: What Syntax Is Allowed?

A: The following is allowed: <a href> headings <h1 – h6> although you wont be able to tell the difference between the latter headings. As well as this you can also use <acronym> <code> <em> <strike> <strong> <i> <b>. Most of these tags you don’t need to use. They are there if you want.

Hosting

Q: What Host Do You Use?

A: I am currently using SliceHost. At the moment I have a 512mb slice. It runs like the wind. It is really fast. I am only using over half of the memory at the moment. So a 256mb slice isn’t an option for me. I really wish I could get Dugg or Slash-dotted so I can really test it out.
