Reliability on Thompson Super Ball Bushing

Posted by admin | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women | Posted on 29-09-2012


Ever wonder how NASA, Apple, HP and Bose create their products? I always wonder what it takes to create something so intricate and detailed. Where do these products come from? We always hear about the products themselves but never how many people it takes to create them or the products it takes to create them.

Considering NASA is such an important outlet in the Space Missions I wondered where these items came from. Obviously NASA relies on products that are strong, dependent and top of the line, as to secure astronauts and to complete space missions. I discovered a thomson super ball bushing was a huge contender for the production of NASA’s equipment. This little piece of metal plays such an important role in something so extreme and yet, you never hear about it. This type of information is interesting to find out, at least to me.

Goodbye Oh My SPAM

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women | Posted on 29-07-2012


It has been a great run…

I started managing this blog about two months ago and it has been my pleasure to bring you all my grapes and gripes about internet SPAM. The topic is pretty much endless seeing as some form of un-wanted ads will forever be engrained in the world wide web.

Truth is I got a big boy job working for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and I am having trouble finding the time to get up with all the blogs I manage and something had to go. Don’t get me wrong I have loved writing for this blog but there comes a time in every mans life when he needs to get up and move to bigger and better things. This time for me is now.

So take care all you followers (I’m sure theres tons of you lol!) I hope you stick around for whoever comes after me and show them more love than you’ve shown me!



Rick Rolled – SPAM at it’s best

I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

Weight Loss SPAM

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Beneficiary Emails, Fail, Financial Scams!, Jokes!, Oh My Spam, Oh no they didnt!, Seriously? | Posted on 23-07-2012


I do not consider myself an over weight guy, and I don’t know how I got on the list for all this diet pill SPAM (maybe penis enlarger but that is a different story, ha). But seriously everyday I get e-mails promises great weight loss results I wouldn’t even need if they really did work. I could probably gain ten pounds rather than lose them, so why am I getting all these e-mails.

No I am not putting those weird weight loss chemicals in my drinks let alone my body. No I would not like a membership to a gym. And no I do not want a bunch of frozen low calorie TV dinners, deserts, and snacks. That crap can all go back to the people who sent it to me. They’re fat sacks that are just trying to make themselves feel better by conning others. I have had enough. Go sell your fat farm products to some other schmuck.

Slim chews? Pft, yeah right.

SMI4motion – Ball Splines

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Misc | Posted on 22-07-2012


It’s hard to write up blogs on things for companies that aren’t in the most popular industries without sounding like SPAM. It seems to me that it is easier to write about sports or pop culture and other things that are naturally popular just as it is easier to take in ads or have conversations about these topics. But that doesn’t mean that unpopular things need to be ignored in internet blogs and chopped up to unnecessary.

In fact blogging for SMI4motion.com has given me insight to a world I otherwise would not have ever experienced. Not often do we think of the parts that go into creating that machinery that our lives so often depend on. Factories and machines are made up of tons of tiny parts like ball splines and ball slides and support rails and guides, all things not seen by the naked eye but all the same very important.

Chalking their industry to annoying after thoughts like SPAM would be a great disservice.  

SPAM – Are We Asking For It?

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Misc, Oh My Spam, Oh no they didnt!, Seriously?, SPAM, WTF | Posted on 18-07-2012


This whole website is dedicated to complaining about how much  of a pain in the ass SPAM can be. Pop ups, hacked profiles, hidden links, and stuffed inboxes can get old really quick. I doubt there is anyone out there that would state that they love internet SPAM and its efforts. Even the people you create SPAM probably get bothered by it while surfing the web like anyone else. I still think the number one cause of computer viruses is internet SPAM but for real occurrences that severe are uncommon for the most part if you use common sense online the web.

You should know that filling out this forum and that contest will lead the SPAM directly towards you like blood to a shark fight. Yes, the side bar ads can be appealing and look like the easiest decision of your life but they’re made that way. It isn’t that hard to avoid the tell tale signs of internet SPAM.

Be safe surfers.

Byproduct SPAM

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Drugs, Oh My Spam, Seriously?, SPAM | Posted on 17-07-2012


I’m sick of buying this online and then boom SPAM every day from the people I just gave money to. I mean I just bought something leave me alone already. I buy an amp and subwoofer on Amazon and suddenly Amazon thinks I need eight more and maybe $15 off will convince me to buy them. I buy a hat from Zummiez and now I need sweatshirt discounts and Volcom promotions. If I’m going to buy anything it’s because I need it or I want that product, not because of some e-mail ad.

My mother buy a onesy  for her niece a couple of years ago and we’re still getting baby formula coupons in the junk mail. Companies need to put their time and energy in to their products and costumer service not SPAM mail. There should be more companies like smi4motion. I bought a ball bearing slide from them the other day and they asked me if I’d like to be put on their e-mail list. To which I replied no, but at least they had the courtesy to ask before filling my inbox with SPAM.

Video Game SPAM

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Beneficiary Emails, I WON!!!!, Jokes!, Oh My Spam, Oh no they didnt!, SPAM, WTF | Posted on 17-07-2012


My brother and I have never really seen eye to eye on common interests. While I round my bike around with my friends and played in bands he was was busying playing dungeons and dragons and building computers with his friends. It’s not that I don’t play my fair share of video games but I just don’t understand the World of Warcraft or Mario’s Galaxy. So I thought I’d put together a SPAM blog about what gets computer gamers riled up.

My brother says the worst SPAM are the fake games that when you lose (or even worst when you win, he says) you get pushed to an add or forced to sign up for some mailing list to get more. I guess nothing if worst than getting a taste of what you want (in this case a video game) and not being able to have it. I guess I feel him, I get tricked in the fake PAC Man adds every now and than.

Yahoo Mail – Should I Merge With My Gmail?

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Oh My Spam | Posted on 10-07-2012


I’ve talked a few times about my Yahoo mail and what a pain in the butt it can be to deal with the heavy amount of SPAM it acquires. It is my oldest e-mail account and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get rid of it. The truth is sometimes I need it. I use it as my online sign up e-mail. Anytime I have to fill out a forum to do something on the internet that I don’t want to be bothered with on my Gmail I use my Yahoo address.

Lately I’ve needed to access the old Yahoo e-mail when catching up on things like Ticketmaster deals and MySpace messages and these accounts were made before I had the Gmail I use now. Yahoo now offers a linking with Gmail accounts that acts much like E-mail forwarding but I’m not sure I want to link up just yet. My phone already goes off enough with the small amount of e-mail I get on my Gmail day to day. I don’t think I’m ready to have SPAM invade my phone. Guess I’ll just have to keep an eye on my Yahoo Account.


Do you consider video ads SPAM?

Posted by Michael | Posted in 4 Men, 4 Women, Oh My Spam, SPAM | Posted on 08-07-2012


As the internet gets faster and faster and websites like Netflix and YouTube keep popping up video content seems to be more and more mainstream. The old days of internet video did not really seem worth it; an hours of wait time only to buffer every two minutes and over work your computer. Now it seems video is all over the internet. Even SPAMers have caught on, using video ads to lurer unsuspecting net browsers.

But are commercials on popular YouTube videos and Hulu television shows considered SPAM?

It sure is irritating to run into a 30 second ad before being able to view a YouTube video. Users online today want things instant and ads get in the way of that dream. If you used Hulu before the sponsored commercial breaks you were most likely frustrated with the advertisements.

But is the internet really that different from radio or television?

We’ve been dealing with TV and radio ads from decades now and most people have just grown accustom to it. Personally I’m okay with the sponsored ads that make view my media for free. It’s those ads that offer me nothing in return that I have a problem with.
