Every member of ActiveRain needs to set up an Automatic Alert!  This feature is potentially one of the most important features ever released on AR.

I was reading the Seattle Times this evening and I came across an article about the 520 Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. If you live in this area then you know how important the 520 Bridge is for the daily commute. The Bridge is one of two that span Lake Washington connecting Seattle to the vibra...
One of my guilty pleasure's is watching Dateline's: To Catch a Predator. For me it's two fold. I love that the spotlight is being shown on such a disgusting aspect of the internet. These perverts need to be exposed and I'm so glad some of our local officials have made it a felony in some areas. T...

We started kicking around the idea of gift cards. Now someone let me know if someone is doing this, be...
I am glad that ActiveRain made the first post about our integration with the ActiveRain network. When we first approached them about integrating our Brio Home Search with the site I wasn't exactly sure of the terminology and how they would apply it to make things work. Luckily for us, Matt and th...
I see so many people that do not have an ability to follow a lead from beginning to end.
