Need a quicky camera mount for use with a mic stand? “mnwingnut” wanted to create something that was cheap, easy, secure and small. He finally picked up both a non-threaded female to male PVC adapter and threaded PVC cap, added a nut, wingnut and bolt, some flexible water hose and he had himself a mini-mount. Although the mount can pan and tilt, it is somewhat limited in its ability to make angle adjustments. A step-by-step guide is available for the $4.00 gadget.

Yesterday we posted a promo code that gives you 20 free international calling minutes on MyGlobalTalk, with no purchase necessary at all. A few people emailed in and asked if there were any deals that could be had if they were willing to make a purchase. So we got on the phone and worked out yet another deal. Using our latest MyGlobalTalk coupon code, if you buy $5 in pre-paid minutes, you will get 60 free minutes added on to your purchase. We’ve found MyGlobalTalk to be the most inexpensive way to make international calls, from anywhere on the planet. That said, that initial $5 payment will bank you a ton of minutes on it’s own (many hours, depending on where you call.)
