The day a coat-hanger made me POOP myself...

by 2 comments
I know you're thinking... "Nath... wtf... a coat-hanger?"

I'll get into it straight away.

3:14am... Was doing some work on my trusty laptop (one and only computer). At the time I also had clothes on coat-hangers on the left side of my bed... I was on the right.

It was so early but I was plowing through my upcoming release so I didn't want to stop.

I went to get a drink of milk... So I placed my laptop next to the clothes... really close to the coat-hangers.

As I came back into my room... put down my milk... and proceeded to put my laptop onto my 'lap', a coat-hanger decided to come with it.


The coat-hanger lodged its end into a USB port and shorted it out. All that work was ruined! Not to mention my underpants .

I came to think... oh my god... what if it cannot be fixed... what if it shorted out the CPU or motherboard... what if my hard drive is farked!

By this time my underpants were almost non existant.

Luckily all that was needed was for the battery to be taken out for a minute... so the memory could be erased and the 'safe switch' would turn off and let me turn the laptop back on.

The worst part is... I hadn't backed up anything from that month. I was also lucky in the way that I lost no work.

I consider myself one of the luckiest warriors as I know sooooo many of you have at one time or another lost a lot of work due to it not being backed up.

U'll be glad to know my computer automatically back's itself up every 24 hours on autopilot.

My schphinkter can now 'release' and I can get back to work... uni study that is


So the moral of this story is that I hate coat-hangers... no no sorry.

The moral of the story is backup every-fricken-thing automatically!

If someone wants to send me over a beer for some new underwear I will greatfully accept hahaha.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
