21695Re: Time....Its all we have
- Feb 2, 2013I have to concur with Ken. While I would love to toss new features in to meet everyone's needs, I cannot invest my time in every want and need.
Now if you want to pay me to implement a feature, I will be happy to do that. I have worked with some companies to support stations that are not in the consumer market. They pay me for my time.
Now if there is a popular demand for something, a popular station, a new weather server, whatever, I will invest the time to implement new features.
Keep in mind that I do this as a hobby, on the weekends as I am too spent during the week to write more code after writing code all day.
