If you don't mind sharing.
No, it's either 85 for a year or whatever I paid for an owned license. Last year I leased for a year, I should have just bought one. It's a smaller fee per year for access to updates and downloads now, I don't know how much.

I'm lucky to see $100 from goog every 6 months
considering our size it's a good return. My license expired the 24th and I got a goog deposit for 101 today. Good timing


We don't use a lot of b/w and I have a good host that will move me to another SQL server if it gets too busy for the forum, so shared hosting is still getting me by @ around $30/mo. I have easily been through 10 hosts in the last 2 years and this one is by far the best.

Hell i'll go to 5 banners a day if it will help out.
it's all a variable. sometimes goog has good ads, sometimes not. I saw a trussville the other day, but they usually pay out at 10-15 cents a click.... too many false clickies and they'll suspend me for fraud tho

Understandable.
*Keeping false clicks to a min.*

I just don't think it's worth it.
Now if I ever went to my own server instead of a shared that would triple or quadruple my cost si'd be all over it, but that won't be needed for a very long time or unless I can get a good stable line at home and run my own box. My UL on cable is like 20k/s which isn't reliable and comcast frowns on that sort of thing.

actually what I should do is set the forum up as a business and get a tax ID. Use it as a write off and be able to buy **** at wholesale

I'll pay $20 so I can abuse people like Philip does. Or maybe $20 to ban someone

Seriously though, thanks for the forum Philip.

Thanks from me as well. Where else would i waste my late nights.

I'm much too lazy.

Everyone wants like the die cut expensive kind and I'd need to front about $300 to get them run, plus time to mail the damn things out. Last ones I did cost me $30 for the run and I mailed them from work with their envelopes and postage meter. Shhhh!

I was thinking more in terms of my own hobbies. Usually if you have a tax-ID you can at least buy tax free B2B if not get a reseller account and get at wholesale.

Eh I say make the cheap kind, people can stick them on tool boxes and **** like that if they think they're too ugly for their cars.
I would stick the thing to a sheet of flat magnet and cut it out. Put it where you want and remove it when you want.
Hell stick it to someone elses car, with the Text "Pass It On" at the bottom.

lol, that would actually be funny. I'd die if I was walking in a parking lot and saw my stickers.
