That’s a wrap! – Friday 31st August

I’m heading off to Scotland this afternoon to meet up with Scott, so it’s a good job I heard about Double Wires earlier in the week. The high score to beat is 107.82 yds by Scott’s 7yr old son 🙂 .

Great post by Wendy on hosting lessons learned to survive the Digg effect, I’ve been through this before and there’s a lot of sound advice here.

I’ve been invited to join the Chitika Premium Publishers Club, it sounds pretty cool with instant chat to your account rep, real time reporting, CPM ads and custom ad units, I’ll review this in a later post when I’ve had chance to play with it more.

  1. What no highly addictive flash game to waste another week on? By the way level 23 is hard 🙂

    Have a good weekend guys and enjoy your meet up.

    • One was posted, it’s called Double Wires for this week game. You nutter Tim, you must have played that game all through your holidays 😉 How on earth did you get to level 23?

  2. Well I never do you know I must have gone post blind and didn’t see it.

    It sort of just clicked and suddenly went through 10 levels in less then an hour.
    Sadly my hols were pretty interupted anyway.

  3. Candy stand has a similar game
    But much easier to play 🙂

  4. Have a great weekend, I look forward to hearing how it went.

  5. Was on a roll and got to 183.58 after two tries. Plays like a drunk spiderman.

    Some friendly proof and chest pounding can be found here:

    183.58 guns

    overall fun game

  6. Good links, thanks. I didn’t know about the Chitika premium publisher club so maybe that would work for me too.

    My latest earnings have been over $60 per day so maybe I qualify. 😉

    The wordpress hosting Digg link is a also very useful if I ever get to the stage getting Dugg multiple times.

    By the way, did you know that Site Build It sites survive a Digg without a hitch?

  7. Thanks for the mention 🙂

  8. On double wires I managed to score 377 if I remember correctly. After about 200 it became a lot easier. It seems like once you are past all the squiggles you just carry on from the start but the hard parts are ommited. Its then just a matter of hanging in with out falling asleep.
