Chris is the Co-founder, Administrator, Architect, Chief Editor and Shameless Hack who wrote and runs The Code Project. He's been programming since 1988 while pretending to be, in various guises, an astrophysicist, mathematician, physicist, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a web developer. He is a Microsoft Visual C++ MVP both globally and for Canada locally.

His programming experience includes C/C++, C#, SQL, MFC, ASP, ASP.NET, and far, far too much FORTRAN. He has worked on PocketPCs, AIX mainframes, Sun workstations, and a CRAY YMP C90 behemoth but finds notebooks take up less desk space.

He dodges, he weaves, and he never gets enough sleep. He is kind to small animals.

Chris was born and bred in Australia but splits his time between Toronto and Melbourne, depending on the weather. For relaxation he is into road cycling, snowboarding, rock climbing, and storm chasing.

Thanks Chris for the update.

I was a bit perplexed when I got a refund on PayPal today. Workspaces had a lot of merit and I got it. I was planning to move In with my next article I'm slowly working on. The news comes as a mixed bag to me now, and I'd like to expand.

I've been a long time fan of CodeProject. I can't begin to count the number of times I've needed a "Hint", or a quick "How to" over the years and found the answer here. While the service is free, I really wouldn't mind paying something. I saw having a "Professional Workspaces account" as just that for the few months while you were in BETA.

While I'm no marketing expert, as a consumer, Code Project does need something to quench my inner guilt for getting so much for nothing, and I'm sure others do too.

I think a good model of what I'm talking about is reddit. As you may know, having a "Gold" account really doesn't do much but put a badge on your profile, give you access to one single private reddit, allow you to turn off the side bar ads, and allows you to get more posts comments per page load. That's about it. The funny thing is I don't turn off the ads because I like the messages you get when you don't.

Long story short - Not much different than the free, and they've monetized my membership for about $50 dollars a year. I also can purchase "Gold" to give away to other members. While these things don't do much, they do help build a sense of community and offer a way of saying "thanks" with a small monetized gift token to someone whose helped you out.

So here's my advice - take your Alien (I believe you all were first with the alien, right?) and paint him yellow or "gif" him up so his arms wave and he's jumping for joy - Anything - And tell me I can have him on my profile for 2 to 5 dollars a month, 20 - 30 dollars a year (29.95???) And I'll buy him for the bragging rights.

Just my thoughts.

EDIT: got punchy on the submit button fixed my last two paragraphs - sorry.
