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 DonationCoder.com 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.

-mouser

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

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.

My thanks go to FARR (Find and Run Robot).  huh

YES FARR! Because a google search for a program like FARR lead me to DC. And therefore my thanks goes to mouser as well for creating FARR and founding DC.  Thmbsup

To make a long story short, i agree 100% with jgpaivas post. And i can't live without my daily dose of DC anymore!  Thmbsup  Thmbsup  Thmbsup

[JoTo stands up...looks at all the others, wait until he gets attention from all people here and start to say...]

Hello, My name is JoTo and i must admit i am a DC-Holic!

[JoTo sits down]

But beware! No-bo-dy should try to start to cure me from this addiction.  Angry He/She will have no success...PROMISED!!!   tongue

Thanks again mouser and to all the other great people here that allow me to be a part of DC.

Yours
JoTo

Yes, thank you mouser for your thank you cheesy, the users are the ones who power every thing..

but of course you set it up and started the momentum, and kept rolling with it.

You are one smart human.. Wink you know how to layout every thing in influential ways (or maybe I'm just seeing things..  huh) but your purpose is good, and that's what makes this community solid.

Don't know if any of you understand that.. don't think I even do..  huh

Cool bananas!  Grin

I (as the head administrator of my own large forum) applaud, salute and Thank You, mouser ... on the special duties you accomplish here, day after day.

I know how difficult it may be to maintain a forum as active as this one. The responsibilities are enormous. I can't imagine the traffic you now get from visiting members.

As for me, and my DC-addiction ... well, I am on the side of the USER. I do not code at all, so to that admission - I Thank All DonationCoders. Newbies, veterans, and trolls alike.
As long as everyone contributes something of substance to this growing community, I don't see any end in sight for this amazing site.
