Exam Results, Mini Competition & New Stuff

By John Clarke

Exam Results

Yesterday, me and the misses both got our degree results. We both got a 2:1, which we’re incredibly happy about, especially since we’ve always had Coffeesh0p to look after too. I know you’re probably here to read about drugs related stuff, but I don’t care – this is my blog and I’ll be smug all over it if I want to!

Mini Competition

Since I’m in a good mood and I’m still on the lookout for suggestions about any of the things I mentioned before, I’m going to raise the stakes a little bit. I’ll be giving away five bamboo shotgun pipes to the best five suggestions. If you’re not sure what I mean, please go back and read that post, then comment about any of the points raised in it at the bottom of this post. I’ll pick the five suggestions I like the most and give away a pipe to each person. Couldn’t be simpler, right? Just like Johnny 5, I need your input!

New Stuff

Since my last post, I’ve spent most of my time adding new products to the site. Tonnes of them, in fact – entheogens, smoking mixtures, pipes, grinders. All sorts. Since that’s all I’ve been doing though, I don’t want this to be another post full of links to new stuff, because, let’s be honest, it makes this blog look tacky. This isn’t supposed to be one big advert, blogging (I hate that word!) about what I do is just my hobby.

Hopefully, in the next few weeks then, I’ll be putting a couple of the latest products on the front page of the site, where the “Coffeesh0p Dev Blog Latest Posts” are now. I’ll also make an RSS feed available for anyone that wants to subscribe to that, keeping these blog posts relatively free of links.

Update:
Here’s the Latest Products page and RSS feed. 🙂

    The joint rolling contest sounds pretty cool although i cant roll too good so i doubt i’d win. Anyway i think the best way for people to enter is to record a video of themselves rolling their best joint, upload to youtube and post the link on the blog. Also in order to stop people cheating by using videos of random people rolling, you will need to mention synchronium.net in the video and also have the web address written on some paper which is then placed next to the finished joint. With regards to any legalities, entrants must use tobacco or any legal smoking mix or a mix of both.

    Bam, first winner.

    Interesting idea with a video. I’m worried it might create a bit of a barrier to entry. How easy is it to record a video and put it on YouTube?

    Perhaps we could have a video contest to win a bong and a picture contest to win a smaller bong or pipe or something, for those less technologically able.

    I could only think of a minor suggestion, which would be to make the home page shorter – make the picture links into two rows of three categories, rather then three rows of two, and move the sidebar to the top of the page (but leave them as picture buttons). the site looks great oherwise.

  4. Mark says:

    Its not too difficult to upload vids to YouTube its pretty straight forward. I think most digital cameras allow you to record video so those without a digital video camera would still be able to record a vid and upload it.

    But as you said about it creating a barrier i definately agree with you so i think a picture contest would be good idea. Again to stop cheating entrants must include synchronium in the pic.

  5. Mark says:

    Hi Synchronium just wanted to let you know that the pipe arrived safely today. Thanks man, i really appreciate you sending it out to me.

    Oh before i forget i tried the Hypnotic pills that you sent. They’re not that great to be honest, just got a sort of relaxed feeling although it could’ve just been a placebo effect.

  6. Synchronium says:

    Max: You get a pipe for your interesting idea. I can certainly see a benefit to making the page smaller, but I think there might be a better way to do it. What do you reckon to halving the width of the subcategory images, so I can fit two columns of those under the main category headers? It wouldn’t reduce the size by much, but it would certainly be an improvement, and also the width would remain the same. That’s important because if I make it any wider, then there’ll be sideways scrolling for the majority of users.

    Mark: I think we’ll go for the video + pics then. Sounds like it’ll be fun. I’ve had mixed reviews about those pills. For some people they’ve been awesome, for others, they made them feel a bit sick. This is the first report I’ve read where nothing has actually happened!

    Thanks for that.

    In other news, this is blog comment #200. Woo!

    Synchronium, I definitely think the joint rolling contest is a idea for a contest. From experience, it takes a lot of practice and skill to roll a joint in a short period of time. On YouTube, videos can be made viewable by invitation only, which can prevent it being flagged. As far as uploading videos to YouTube, most cameras have a USB or Firewire cable that connects to the computer.

    An idea for a future competition could be who can make the best, most creative homemade bong or pipe. For example, I am in the middle of making pipe out of some bamboo. It takes a lot of skill and craftsmanship to create a working bong/pipe. Contestants could carve a bong/pipe out of wood and post a video/picture.

    For your website, I love the ‘Synchronium’ graphic at the top of the webpage. However, when I scroll down there aren’t much graphics on the side so the webpage loses some of its pop. Maybe you could add more of the chemistry graphics that you have at the top, to the sides.

    Hope this helps.

    Synchronium, I just received my pipe in the mail. I was surprised it came with 10 screens, amazing!

    Thanks

  9. Synchronium says:

    Alex: Thanks for your ideas. I like the home-made smoking apparatus idea. That might have to wait until more people read this blog though – I’m worried that only about 2 people would take part.

    I also like the idea of putting more chemicals down the side too. The side bar does look a bit crap. I might change the search box too, because that just looks awful.

    Enjoy the pipe! 🙂

    Do you still have anymore pipes? 🙂
