I suspect that as numbers get reworked over and over, that might fluctuate by a few cents.

Granted, a lot more came in from residual income streams and whatnot, but all that went out to projects.

When folks do "fair share" I wonder what they get?

So if you had 2014 to do over to help this number be higher, what would you have done differently? Or does the non-monetary benefits have you doing the same things?

It would be interesting to see the breakdown, I would suspect you have a lot of -$/hour items like gappers and dealing with issues on the forum where you are actually losing money per hour spent.

I personally would pay to hear more podcasts or have something like Spirco does where I can support monthly and get more content from you. But I don't know if that helps or hurts your hours rate.

I'm not going to pretend to know what the hell is going on or be some annoying online sage who knows everything but this post seriously made me feel like opening my wallet and making it rain (metaphorically speaking) to your bank account ($10 at most, where's a donation link?). It's not a thought of charity, just an itch to buy somebody you like a beer (metaphorically again, I don't drink). I like that you got balls, your a humble alpha male (like me, I think I'm one at least) and you have a vision which your chasing. Done a fine job enabling a community here, not that I need to tell you something you already know.
