Well today’s the day a lot of you have been waiting for Pligg 2 has been released. Kind of… Yankidank has decided he wants to charge for it. May I remind you that I don’t see a single penny from that. It all goes to Yankidank. It wasn’t my decision to release it that way either. Personally I think it needed more work before releasing it, and it should have been free. His method is more like charging you be a beta tester.
We disagree on a lot of things, but that’s ok. It’s good to have different opinions. It brings out the creativity in both of us. We argue like brothers. We always have, and I suspect we always will. Our arguments are always over the betterment of the project so it’s not like anyone loses. In the end the users always win.

Wow I need a vacation. I mean like a real vacation. I haven’t been on a vacation in over 5 years. Working 1825 days straight without a single break.
Still no contributions today. So I am still stuck in this homeless shelter until I can get at least a few hundred more in donations. Please help me get out of here. I have been so close to being able to go home for the past few days, then all of a sudden the contributors dried up, nobody was sharing my blog, or Indegogo Campaign anymore. I feel as though everyone has suddenly forgotten about me.
Tune in tomorrow
