Stackexchange and the StackOverflow family of sites

I enjoy what I call "My geek sites". I use them for fun and for business. These include,, and other subs.

The goal of each sub-site is to become a repository of questions and answers on a given topic. StackOverflow is all about programming. I use it a lot for PHP and a little for Javascript.

A person gains "Reputation points" for asking and answering questions. I reached a milestone today at 2000+ reputation points.

I was already at that level in the English language version, but the programming version is much more important to me.

LED Signs for outdoor advertising.

Last month I wrote about renting Giant Helium Balloons, from Giant Balloon Rental,

Today I'd like to talk about the LED signs offered by the same company. At first, you might wonder what giant helium balloons and LED signs have in common, but with a little thought, they are actually complementary to each other.

The giant balloons get attention from a distance while the LED signs share your message with potential customers once they are nearby.

LED signs are also good inside events to share information with attendees. You can direct people to Lost and Found, or tell them where to park. Choose the full color version to display your logo to further brand the event and any product you are offering.

Make LED Signs from Giant Balloon Rental part of your outdoor advertising campaign.

If you follow that link, you'll notice that my client has chosen to combine LED signs and Spotlight/Searchlight rental.

As with helium balloons, searchlights reach customers at a distance, but are more effective at night.

An effective outdoor advertising strategy might include helium balloons for the daytime, Searchlights for night, LED signs for specific messages and giant character balloons to attract more attention for those customers passing by. Giant Balloon Rental offers all of these products and more.
