:) Actually, answering questions helps to keep me involved in actually using the software myself. It helps me more directly understand what things need to be tuned up. It's one of the things that helps me actually do more intelligent work.

Also it works well to answer stuff here on the forum, since many people can read posts here and benefit from them. So that also makes it a good (efficient) investment of time!

I wish! :) That's definitely not the case, it's been really tough to make it through the last 3 1/2 years without any income, it has taken a lot of scrimping to make it happen. Hopefully it will be worth it when version 1.0 is ready!

But giving away the betas was really the best way to get things rolling.

You're welcome!
