Annual revenue was $85 billion with net income of $7 billion. Market capitalization was $146 billion. Or are those the figure for IBM?

LOL - Is he kidding??
If that is true then why does Brenda get so ticked when Paul swipes money out of the grocery budget to pay for the Server Support?
Apparently Menaka was not around the last time we "passed the hat" trying to round up enough money ($800) to upgrade the memory so that we would not crash so often. :roll:
Paul Wheaton is not adverse to making money on this site - he just is REALLY particular about not doing anything much that would be too commercial, so he keeps turning down any money making suggestions that would interfere with the "java-ness" of the site.
So we are poor but happy. And everyone volunteers their efforts for free. Considering the caliber of some of the other folks contributing here, that speaks well for the technical community .

I believe JavaRanch's single greatest source of income is a tiny but conniving little consulting group in California. The same group also sets world prices for zinc and beef jerky.

I tried that zinc and beef jerky once and I have to admit that I like the regular beef jerky better.

I think they target that to older guys like me. You know zinc is good for the prostate.

Hi,
i support my favorite german forum by adding /dasforum to the url of each selected item i intend to buy at amazon.de ... and press enter.
I wonder if javaranch would benefit if i added /jr%5Fbunk-20 to each 2nd item. Or does it only work with amazon.com / co.uk ?
cb
p.s.:I acquired Kathy and Bert's book via bunkhouse from uk, wich was ok as the shippingtime was the same as it would have been via com or de, but for most cases it wouldn't be worth the effort. com and co.uk don't even find ISBNs for german books in the search tss..tss...

As I understand it the Amazon.com / co.uk /de etc are all different companies operating as franchises under the Amazon banner (I;m sure someone will correct me here!)
Their affiliate schemes are all entirely seperate and if we registered with all of them, each book in the bunkhouse would have WAY too many links. We don't make much at all from the affiliate schemes but it's better than a kick in the teeth.
We make most money from the 10c or so per book you guys buy from Amazon.com through the BUnkhouse, co.uk doesn't really get us as much and so I can't see there being much financial worth in linking to .de too.
However, if there are a lot of guys/gals in Germany out there, there may be some "being nice" worth, which is worth more than anything too us

Did you ever try out adding /jr%5Fbunk-20 to any item's url at .com, not only the ones linked from the bunkhouse?

We did have three companies this year shell out $300 each for banners. We also scored ten tickets to JavaOne in exchange for some banners.
