      Okay, let's explain what infostry is first of all. It styles itself as a "person to person information exchange" (or something like that)i.e a place where you can buy and sell pieces of information. All the buying and selling is carried out in infocredits (i.e points). Once you've accumulated sufficent points you can cash them in for a variety of stuff.(There's even a secondhand russian spacesuit on offer I seem to remember. Now xmillion has had a look round and can tell you that there are a lot of recipes for sale, and guides to the best sex and or mp3 sites and so on. He has even tried his hand at buying and selling the odd piece of information and can confirm that the process is relatively painless. However xmillion is more interested in the fact that infostry give you 10 points just for logging in each day, and that 1500 points make a $25 Amazon.com gift certicificate. Since it takes xmillion approximately 30 seconds to type his name and password, press go and wait for the page to load, he thinks this is a pretty good deal. So xmillion gives it five stars and says go sign up now! (Oh yes, and there are no residency restrictions on membership.) -------- Or he did. But good things never last. They've changed the rules (don't they always). You still get ten points for logging in, but you can't do anything with "these" points except buy information; there's now a completely different set of points given for writing/selling information, which you are the ones that get you the goodies. And xmillion was only a few days away from getting his first Amazon cert. One will just have to get off one's backside and do a little work to get there. Oh, and they've upped the price to 1600 points for the $25 Amazon certificate.
