In Reply to: I wasn't even talking about that. Have you heard posted by of english 101? Ron on April 28, 2000 at 20:53:30:

The tone of the post..

disparging "working for us"

Because I'm certainly not doing this "for me"

If I were, I'd drop helping all the Internet
people out, fold all the R/D money into ads
and make 20x the money with 10% the problems
and controversy I currently have.

I'll make you a deal Ron..

Come stay with me for up to a week.

My wife won't mind (too much)

You can wake up with me in the AM..

Hang out at my work. See all the madness I
deal with from 9 to 5..

Come home and watch what I do.

Spend a few nites up until 3am looking at hex
code with me.. Eat supper in a 15 min rush
then back to the office to work more.

I'll let you deposit the checks (if any)
I get.. and pay all the business bills
I have for the whole time your here.

Then you can come back to this board
as the "independent arbitrator" of truth
and tell the people if:

1) Jim C. is really in it for the money
and is some rich, high life fatcat.

or

2) Jim C. is one dedicated MF who's working
his butt off 7 days a week to make us
new cool stuff, while not really making
enough money to consider "making money"

You can post your findings, but I think if
your honest in your report.. we can write it
now.. just put #2 in your own words.

Maybe someday I'll post an annual accounting
for my business.. so the few vocal minions who
think I'm "in it for the money" can finally
get the truth.

The funny thing is, that I'm just beginning to
realize exactly how big a fool I've been, in
devoting my time and energy to try to "do
something good for BMW owners". I should have
been spending it doing something "good for Jim"

Then at least when y'all tell me I'm a greedy
spawn of Satan, I can tell you "Yeah, but I
have a fat bank account"...

Unfortunately I can't do that right now.

Jim
