Oh, I never had a "business model". (My web pages succeeded
in getting me jobs when I needed jobs years ago.) I never
really thought of my Web pages as a business, maybe that's
why asking for donations, when I needed them, rarely worked.

My pages were simply the result of my own learning process,
that is, writing about past projects or new topics that I found
interesting or needed to learn for some work. What I didn't like
were the attitudes that I was supposed to _do more_ for visitors
to my pages or that I was a ready and available resouce. Plus some
of the folks' impoliteness made it more annoying.
