For those who are interested
whether this site will be down by next year, the answer is nope. I’m getting minimum payment out of Adsense, but it’s enough to keep the site hosted for next 10 years. Frankly I’m only working on the posts that I find useful (small tips on electronics and such), so don’t worry about shutting it down without notice. Cause if it is going down, there will be a bigger reason than financials.
Speaking of which, I had to make some changes with the location of where the ads are. Not that I approve of the idea, but it should stop bothering anyone who’s trying to read the post in magazine-style theme.
