October 1st will mark one year of this blog.
October 1st could also mark the end of this blog.
I’m now imposing a tax on your readership. If you come here to read something, even once, you have to pay.
If I don’t see the needle move on these things in a significant way, October 1st will be the final day of this blog.
I see the readership here. I know of a handful of posts that if people had to pay just US$1.00 to read, all three fundraisers would have been accomplished within a day.
So, no more coming here for a free ride on my ass. Your ass now has to pay.
No, you don’t have to do it every time you come here. Just the one time. Pick one of the three funds and do it.
Special Taxes For The Particularly Annoying:
If you are an employee of Palm: US$5.00 to each fund
If you are a Microsoft MVP: US$5.00 to each fund
If you are an employee of Microsoft: US$10.00 to each fund
If you are a Microsoft V.P.: US$15.00 to each fund
If you are in law enforcement: US$20.00 to each fund
If you are in law enforcement and are monitoring this blog: US$50.00 to each fund
If you are Steve Ballmer: US$50.00 to each fund
If you are Ed Colligan: US$75.00 to each fund
If you are Bill Gates: US$100.00 to each fund
If you are Rupert Murdoch: US$150.00 to each fund
And until I am satisfied — or until October 1st, if this blog is euthanized — you will see this at the bottom of each post:
Did you just read this post? Now click here.
Which will link to this post.
Let the countdown to the nuking of this blog now begin! Go on, you all watch 24. This is your chance to be Jack Bauer. Or not.
