LJ / Credit Card II / LAUNCHcast / DDR

Yay LJ!
Haha! For two nights in a row now, I have read the last 20 friends' LJ entries and commented on some and even made an entry myself. My friends list has grown again and it's ever harder to keep up. It's a good thing.


Credit Card? Part II
So as I mentioned yesterday, I'd considered getting this credit card from an app I got in the mail. I stuck the app halfway in my purse to read the next day at work if there's time. Well, the cats ate the half sticking out. I take this as a sign. I will pass on this card offer.


Yea LAUNCHcast!
I really like the plus version with no commercials. It gets me through the day at work with favorites and new music alike. If you'd like to listen to what I like, I've put the link on my LJ page. Let me know if there's anything I might like that you're not hearing.


Exercise? Me?
Ok, I'm officially addicted to DDR. I play it everytime I go over to flower76's house, and now I'm jonesin' for a set up of my own. I plan to use it as an exercise program for myself, as it always gets me sweaty and winded. I think this will be my Christmas present to myself. BTW, does anyone have a link to a site with good instructions on how to duct tape the pad so it doesn't get all fritzy?

For the DDR pad taping, I think it will depend on the type of pad. Shaun helped me tape mine. Basically, you just duct tape the layer directly next to the wiring layer. You shouldn't have to do any cutting or anything. For instance, with my current pad, Shaun unzipped them, flipped them open, and then taped the underside of the top (if that makes any sense). Just put tape over the whole thing. The pattern doesn't matter. Try to keep the pad as smooth as possible. The goal is to keep the plastic you are taping (which is generally the only thing between the circuitry and the floor/pad) from getting crumpled up, folding and/or tearing. The material that the circuits are on is, I kid you not, like the cheap plastic wrap you find on stuff you buy (not the stretchy kind, the crinkly fragile kind). Make sure you tape before you use the pad. They really do break quickly! We're on our second set, and this second set is already acting a little bit squiggy.
