  1. I do not leave a leave a response, but after reading through a few of the responses here Martin Jetpack-finally for sale
    $100,000 | Inane World. I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be just me or do a few of these comments appear as if they are coming from brain
    dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to
    post. Could you post a list of all of all your public sites like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  2. LOL, no you are correct – on any site where the general public can somewhat freely comment (I do have to approve, but I only disapprove spam), you will get people posting who have an axe to grind with a given company, or who are very opinionated, almost in a “religious” fashion. No, I don’t really write on other sites, other than doing my own comments when something really bugs me. Thanks for the vote of confidence on my postings :-) One of my 2014 goals is to post more stuff on here, I admit to being lazy lately. Yea, I guess I could do a post pointing to my other social presence, good idea.
