Two good things for five bucks

First is phpFlashMyAdmin. If you're using MySQL, you're probably using phpMyAdmin to manage your database. It's a great tool and it does make the job of managing your database way easier than via an SQL command-line, but it's based entirely in HTML forms. This makes the whole experience clunky to say the least. phpFlashMyAdmin has all of the same back-end as phpMyAdmin, but instead of an HTML form front-end, it has an interface built entirely in Flash.

And it works great. It's not quite as snappy and luxurious as using a native EXE front-end to your database, like MS Access, but it's about as close as you're gonna get in a web browser.

And it's five bucks. Worth every penny.

The next is "Banquet Crock-Pot Classics". These are frozen meals that you make in a crock-pot, and they're great if you don't wanna spend a lot of time cooking. Basically you toss most of the ingredients in a crock-pot, set it on "low", then return eight hours later to drop anything in that's not slow-cooker friendly (like rice or noodles). Then a half-hour later, you're done. The $5 package makes three big servings, and it requires a total of about five minutes of actual prep-time. Good if you want something that tastes better than a TV dinner but has the same commitment. Best is the Chicken & Rice. Worst is the Pork & Potatoes (mostly due to the potatoes being mealy).

I'm always looking ways to eat cheap without working my ass off, and this is a good one.

And I have nothing more to say, so here's a picture of the Flying Spaghetti Monster with a bomb on his head. Pastafarians will likely be burning my house down soon.
