Goin' Commercial

The astute among you may notice that this blog has grown to include Google AdSense ads. I figure I should be able to take in an extra thirty-seven to forty-three cents a month, depending on the hotness of the topics. If I do that every month for the next eighty-two years, and the Canadian dollar continues at its cuurent high value, I will just about be able to afford two IBM certification exams. Yay!

The real problem now is going to be carefully crafting my postings so that hugely attractive product groups are displayed. So far, my name is putting up "Free Music Downloads". I hope the good people at Fogarty's Cove Music don't get too upset about that. And I certainly don't want to take money away from either Garnet (Stan's younger brother, sidekick, and darned fine folkie in his own right) or Nathan (Stan's son, whose own music has a slightly edgier, party quality to it). Oh, and please don't download Judas Priest, eh?

I figure the market for Domino add-ins is going to be pretty limited, so I probably shouldn't have written this sentence.

Do you sense an experiment in progress?

Interesting side-note: the post entitled "Vroon! Weeeee-lah!", wherein I first made public my several near-death experiences with bibulous behaviour, raises ads for beer and beer-making supplies. Ad "Sense"?

And what is wrong with Judas Priest? Playing some of these songs on my Ibanez electric guitar with heavy distortion and high volume on my ampligier actually helps me keep a bit of sanity!

I'm not living after midnight but for sure, you've got another thing coming...

Nothing wrong with legally-purchased Priest, Ben. It's the "free download" stuff that'll cause suicides....
