    Hi everyone,
    for the past few weeks I have been taking a look at the home page and some threads that interest me and couldn't belive my eyes when I saw the kind of methods
    and tricks you guys come up with. I'm not into online communities too much but BHW takes the cake. I had to register and start learning more interactively because
    here there are people doing what I ultimately want to do: earn from the internet and avoid a 9 to 5.
    I suppose common mentality brought me here as I know a bit about command line tools, scraping and using apis and have tried in the past to make money from the​
    internet, with less than satisfying results though. My passion so to speak is warez, games specifficaly, and I hope to use this to start something grand. Having worked
    for a while as a software developer all I can say is I want to avoid that sad life. In the end I hope of turning white hat and earning a good living from that, but now
    have to avoid any scruples in order to obtain my goal.
    Anyway, not wanting to turn this into a tl;dr text wall I salute you all old and new alike and hope to see in the forum, wether exchanging info on monetizing, you needing a
    scraper (wink wink), answering to each other's questions or mostly just being badass.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Really want to be around likeminded in this transitional period I'm going through.

    bushinonasake don't expect the sky and the land, I mostly do not too complex bash scripting, but some, like curl, can also be done in php.
    That considered though, I have scraped simple warez sites of 10000+ posts and dabbled in the api's of blogger, picasa, dropbox, imgur, a few sites like
    safelinking and some filehosts. I will gladly show some of my stuff when I'll begin my journey with the gargantuan 5$/day objective within next week.
