I'd like to express thanks to the community today

(1/3) > >>

It's always important to step back and take a moment to reflect on what you should be thankfull for.  Sometimes it's easy to get lost in the moment and feel stressed out or on the losing side of a struggle to survive..

Today I find myself incredibly thankfull for the community of users, especially those of you who have participated in this forum, making it a better place.

It was almost 2 years ago that i was in a complete panic about the fact that i couldn't pay my bills and yet i found myself still unable to stop spending my time writing programs, and unwilling to enter into the world of selling software unable to handle traditional employment.

I still have a bit of trouble paying bills, but now when i am programming i feel like i am doing something productive - and that i'm part of something good, and honest, and fun.

This site has become my second home and it means so much to me.  I feel like I know all of you a little bit, and I am thankfull for the opportunity to participate in it, and thankfull that you guys+gals have made it possible to keep spending time on it and trying to improve it.

Thank you all for making this possible.


i am "thankfull" too, mouser that i found this site.. :)

i am glad that you are able to concentrate on your 1st love - writing programs, rather selling out to the corporate world right after school. that's something i can associate with, doing what we enjoy but unfortunately when i finished school, it was a different time with few opportunities (read:dial-ups, yuck!) and slowly, other responsibilities creeped in.

anyway, i am truly happy for you & would like to wish you all the best! :Thmbsup:

In my opinion, I'm the one who has to thank you, mouser.

Finding DC was the best thing that happened to me in the recent times, it allowed me to know other people with my interests, to see how "the real world" is, understanding how the software world works. And i'm very glad to be a part of DC (recently not as much as i'd like, unfortunatelly) in it's swim against the tide (in what concerns donationware).

It's fantastic to be able to finally relate to an online community, filled with interesting people always willing to help and offer new stuff to the community. And i must say, that's all because of you.
I think that by creating DC and its donation-based goal, you've been able to atract people interested in doing more than just watching the world pass by, and every day we can see an example here in the forum of people helping each other.

Yes, i'm a DCholic, and i owe it to you, mouser, and to this fantastic community which i can't live without anymore!

This is an interesting place to visit, in great measure due to your perseverance as far as I can see. Having started without "two ha'pennies to rub together" I can say from experience that perseverance can pay off in many ways -- some financial and some more intangible. Personally, I think it's better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all. Better yet is to have tried and succeeded; one doesn't always notice the success happening until it's well under way.

A big thanks to mouser for coining up :D the idea of the site.

A big thanks to Jibz for nudging me into checking it out.

And a big thanks to the rest of you for keeping the gears spinning!
