Anyone making money?

Just wondering - how many of you here are making money selling software products? Or at least by freelancing?

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...

Clarify

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!

True. And it would be great if everyone uses This instead of using Google. It most likely helps Portableapps. Same with ads and all.

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.

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