just sit back and rack in the cash   :kewl:

Sound way to good.... (been there, done that... in other time)  :-)

Agree with Luis.

I hope you and everyone else rakes in boatloads of cash Daniel.

(warning: freaking rant below, not to be taken personally)
Reality is, there will be a few winners, a few that place, and a boatload of losers. The odds of being in the winners circle are far to great for me to even consider coding for that platform. Hell, I don't even like the odds with Autocad, but I'm not trying to sell in that market either.

(going over the edge now, still don't take personally)
Do you have a business prospectus yet? If you have, I can tell you that it is probably way, way, way, way, off. Multiply the bottom line with a dose of reality, 0.001 to 0.0001 is a good kick in the teeth. Now are you making a living or making a hobby?

(ok, reel it back in now)
Either way, best to you.
Sincerely.

It's Alive!

Still taking risks, just looking for bigger markets to expend time, energy, and money into. For me, putting that energy into the cad market hasn't been worth it for a long while.

I understand and I know that with exceptional talent like yours, you can choose any market you like.

Daniel, it was a pleasure meeting you in Belgium. Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you at the airport, but I have to confess, the look on your face was priceless. :)

In my case, and per my past experiences, I prefer to take a fix amount or sometimes, a little more every two weeks, or at the end of the month, for sure, and leave the risk to the ones I now write code for - The risk I take now is to find clients and keep them, that way I can have a job.

Now that I'm in my early fifties, the risk I want to take is to learn better C++ and not spend so much in AutoCAD developing, there are better opportunities in other sectors, and the pay is better.

My 2 pesos - That nowadays worth almost nothing.... (and something totally different: in 1972 with a US quarter I could pay for four bus tickets, or buy me a sandwich, a soda, and a chocolate)

:)

What do you get when you put a hundred C++ coders in a Salvador Dali museum, with truck loads of free beer?

The CAD equivalents of Unix and LSD?   :-D

Nope, but I know several people who have met him in person. There's a guy who's legend is larger than life, but I guess he's a pretty large guy as well.

Owen, the pleasure was all mine.  :-)  BTY I found where to get a mean Ribeye + loaded potato, so next year we can get a good meal.  :laugh:
