My Interview on The Gasoline Gangsters Show (w/ Video)

29 07 2011

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dusko Jocic on The Gasoline Gangsters Show a few weeks back. The show’s general topics revolve around gasoline theft and peak oil.

I had a bit of a harder time with this interview as it asked harder questions that the usual ones. But all in all, I think I did pretty well.

Thank you Dusko for the great interview opportunity!

End of the line for the Roadster!?… What am I to do? (w/ Poll)

15 07 2011

As most Tesla fans out there know – the Roadster is nearing end of production and they will stop taking orders of this iconic vehicle very soon as stock diminishes to focus on the Model S. Even though they ordered an extra 100 chassis from Lotus – I doubt they will last that long.

When news broke out, I received several messages saying that my quest is over. As much as I would love for Tesla Motors to hand me a brand new one at the end of the line, I know it isn’t a realistic goal and wasn’t my original intention. I agree that it will be hard to pry this car out of someones hands, but I always thought I’d have better chances acquiring a used one.

To get a new one, there just isn’t enough time. I would have to pray for a miracle that Tesla Motors holds one for me or that I complete multiple Hail Mary, high profile trades to order one in time! I guess everything is possible but this is unlikely.

That being said – I’m not giving up and will try my hardest to get one whether used or new! 🙂 Or should I perhaps change my goal car to the more practical Model S, since I have a growing family? Hmmm….

As I’m sure a lot of people have their own opinions regarding my quest’s direction. What’s better than a poll to figure out what people are thinking?

Important change to the Shopify package could sweeten the deal!

6 07 2011

Shopify has just made changes to its packages – essentially removing the Enterprise and Premium packages and introducing an Unlimited plan. Since this change directly impacts the package that was offered to me, Mark Hayes was nice enough to contact me with a proposition to change the package to a 3000$* gift certificate that can be applied to any of Shopify’s monthly plans. I accepted as this makes for a much better deal for the next person I trade with!

What does this mean? A potentially much better online store package! Here are the plans you could chose for the trade:

– 23 month Unlimited Plan w/ 0% transaction fees** (BETTER HURRY BEFORE IT’S GONE! This plan is on promotion right now and would regularly cost 16 077$! Plus the 0% transaction fees is huge!)
– 30 month Business Plan w/ 1.0% transaction fees**
– 50 month Professional Plan w/ 1.0% transaction fees**
– 103 month Basic Plan w/ 2.0% transaction fees**

As you can see, this change gives the next potential swapper lots of options to open a new online store. This should definitely be interesting!

If you need more information about what is included in the packages, please visit this page on Shopify’s website:

You may also want to signup for a free, no obligation 30 day trial. If you like it, and make a successful trade with me, Shopify will add the package of your choice to your account. How simple is that!?
