Agreed, Rudy.

Though meo is a useful resource, not everyone is using it for the stated
purpose. In fact, very few out there are actually using it for learning new
stuff. (I'd be happy to be proven wrong.) There's Jeff's code library, and
shaggy's code library, and... that's all that I can think of, actually.
Many just use it for their blogs, which, IMO, isn't quite what it was meant
for (unless you're building a new blogging tool on your own.)

But maintenance?

Yes. I'm in agreement with what Dan wrote (not on MeFi, but on his own
site.) The dude who politely pointed out that *everyone* pays taxes was
smart, and right.

But $23000 in two f***ing days? What on earth? $23000 = $1916 per month.
Cool! Maybe if we sobbed like Rusty... bah!
