Join the Gymboree Affiliate Program

Do you run your own blog? If you do, you should consider becoming an affiliate of Gymboree. In addition to the more typical affiliate opportunities where you get a kick back when one of your readers buy something, they also offer sponsored post opportunities where you get $5-$15-ish to share their pre-written posts, and you get paid for recruiting new affiliates for them (like with my affiliate link here). 

Taste of Iceland Weekend, Concert Tonight

Taste of Iceland Back in Boston

For the sixth time, Iceland has invaded Boston. As stated in the earlier Taste of Iceland Back in Boston article, the tourism board of Iceland is in town for the weekend. You get to try out the food (and drink) of Iceland all weekend at Tavern Road, hear the music of Iceland and Boston at The Middle East in Cambridge and watch the Icelandic Film Festival at the Kendall Square Cinema on Saturday. Its a fun weekend to experience the culture of the land.
According to Frommers:
Iceland is located just south of the Arctic Circle, but thanks to the Gulf Stream, temperatures are cool in summer and remarkably mild in winter. (New York's winter lows are normally lower than Reykjavík's.) Icelandic weather is unusually volatile, however. The Gulf Stream brings mild Atlantic air in contact with colder Arctic air, resulting in frequently overcast skies, fog, driving wind and rain, and abrupt weather shifts. You could well encounter four seasons in 1 day.
Compared to Boston this past winter, Iceland probably feels like summer. Basically, it is not really that cold compared to the imagery the name implies.

Inateck Hard Drive Carrying Case Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Do you have an external hard disk drive (HDD) that you carry around with you? Inateck has the perfect accessory to go along with it, a shock and shake resistant and water repellent carrying case. Instead of the drive getting pumped around, the case helps protect the drive from getting scratched up, bumped around, or accidental spillage.
The case comes in either blue or black and can hold nearly any 2.5" portable drive. It's retail price is $16.99 but it is currently selling for just $6.99 at Amazon. If you look at the product at Amazon, though, you have to be careful reading the reviews. The product reviews seem to be mixed up with another product.
For me, my usage of the case was with an internal HDD instead of an external one. Instead of carrying a cable on the left side of the case, I connected my drive to my system through the Docking Station I previously reviewed. Not only did the case help protect the drive from banging around but it helped it from collecting dust, too. I try not to spill liquids purposely on drives, and I did not specifically test it with the drive inside, but did spill some water on the case without the drive inside. You can tell a liquid spilled on the case but the inside stayed dry. It should survive most typical spillages.

For under $10, a good investment to protect your drive, if you carry one around.
