PacMan of personal details

August 19th, 2008

David Lloyd Health Club and Fitness Centres really got me going.

.

So I decided to check out how much it would cost to use their swimming pool for a bit of exercise. Like anyone in the XXI century i checked out their website http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/ totally useless when it comes to prices really.

.

The only way to find out more information about prices and memberships is to fill in this form which gives them ridiculous amounts of information like my address and phone number.

.

So I decided the hell with them I will walk in and ask for the information my self.

finviz.com – great for picking stock

August 11th, 2008

It has been a while.

.

Just bumped into this website www.finviz.com via www.stocktwits.com which in turn I found via http://www.wallstrip.com/2008/08/11/twitter/

.

So what’s so cool about finziv?

.

Well they have an extremely powerful search tool for you to find the best stock.
When you have the list narrow down to a few stock you can just over over the price of each individual stock and a graph of historical prices comes up without any delay or an extra popup or window, really user friendly stuff.

.

Also their SotckMap is rather good and customizable, zoomable, etc…
Just hover over a stock and look at the right hand side for the % gained or lost in the past or current day.

.

Hope you guys enjoy this website

For my day to day portfolios I use yahoo and google finance both have their Pro and Cons
