Just wondering - how many of you here are making money selling software products? Or at least by freelancing?
you do realise that the only one who is making money here is John T. Haller and only in the way of donations right?
we dont "Sell" any products here.
I meant the programmers who hang out and contribute here. Not from this site, but in general from their skills. Because people developing open source can't live off of donations I guess...
most of us are kids, probably if they have a job at all it's their first job, they do this for fun, and to get some experience
Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.
...more like a hobby than a job. We do this for fun.
May the Shwartz be with you
MOST of us are just kids
... well... okay, fine, Most of us are teens, does that make you happy?
I dont know if im happy or not...
Yeah Considering I'm an Adult

John makes quite a bit from the ads.
And to the OP, no one here sells software.
Since this was pointed out on IRC... the money from the ads goes to hosting. Hosting is about $13,000 a year and climbing.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
that's a lot of money but its usefull to spend on the website and developing ! cauz portable apps got miljons users and if they dont have portable apps anymore that would be a sad case
True. And it would be great if everyone uses This instead of using Google. It most likely helps Portableapps. Same with ads and all.
Well maybe there are ways to raise additional funds not by just using donations and Google ads.
Like selling crack.
Why stop there?
Alright, BAKE SALE!!!

Okay, longer is better in this case.
No, we don't make any money personally out of this venture. And if we did, I'm sure we donate it to John to help keep up this website.
Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Mix Master Trix these comments are unneeded. A joke every so often is funny and entertaining but you border on idiotic. Please chill out.
