I'm glad to see that at least some other people here "get it" because I
thought I was going crazy for a moment. I've seen several accusations
of Erik/DFS/Flatfish/Myself/whoever actually getting "paid" to post
here which I find completely insane.
For the past 4 months I've averaged 16 posts/week. And there are
actually people out there that believe that this somehow provides a
living for myself and my family? I read and post in COLA for exactly
one reason and one reason only; It's amusing. Anyone who thinks that
what gets posted here in COLA matters enough to change the landscape of
computing needs a reality check.
