I'm going for a 20" LCD monitor. It took me two months though, but hey... It's a good pay for a hobby! ;)

Have fun in Italy, and remember: if they ask where you're from DO NOT ADMIT you're dutch, just tell 'm your Belgian ;)

Well I was going to do some upgrades to my home network, but unfortunally I have many bills to pay first like property tax on my house - estimated federal tax, etc.

Actually it is a toss up on whether I have my house carpeted anew or put in a new well..Ouch!..

I suspect the well will win though as I have some pretty bad water, to me, and am tired of buying and toting in spring water.

Yep, things are still looking up :)

I'll just pay my Over & AdWords bills like I do every month.

Not as bad as it sounds as business is booming and I used to pay the bills out of my own pocket :-)

Half will pay my bills as usual.

The other half is being reinvested in my Sept Adwords campaign, going 4x my regular budget. Hoping to make the $10K+ club this fall.

November, new Mac Pro laptop or tower. My old G3 laptop died a year ago it was #212 of the first production run, had a half a million miles on it.

Getting tired of this PC chunking along but it works, it just ain't pretty.

PIP in Florida USA! Wow! Pretty fast.

We will use this money to build my "appliance garage". This will be a large closet to hold all my kitchen appliances. I have so many that I have not got enough cabinet nor counter space for them, so this will organize my kitchen!

Thanks G!

Hmm,

I have several months' worth of AS cash due to hit my account, and have already spent some/most of it on a spiffy new (Sun CoolThreads) dedicated server in co-lo and two big chunks of network-attached-storage (ie disc with Ethernet and USB!) for my expanding site and its backup!

The thought of having a handheld ~1*terabyte* disc just as a backup that I can walk off-site blows me away. The first hard disc I used was 5MB, and of a similar size and weight... When I went to Uni at about the same time (a major UK uni and very advanced in computing) its entire on-line and off-line storage was something like 1.5GB. I carry roughly that on cheap USB memory sticks with my laptop...

Nostalgia ain't what is used to be, but AS revenue is always great, even if slightly diminished by conversion to GBP at the moment. %-P

Hi alwaysthinking,

Yes, I should buy some stocks with that PIP too, but it's on the wrong side of about 2 tax barriers in the UK. Better to re-invest it in the site for me...

jealous can't begin to describe how I feel. I have to wait 2 weeks for the check, then another month for it to clear.
