I just wanted to say that IndianBill had the greatest journey thread of all time and I finally decided to sign up and join the community because of it. As for my background - I'm a skilled Java dev by trade and have written scrapers in bash and bots in iMacros for fun and profit. I'm chaotic neutral, so I'm about as grey hat as they come - hope y'all don't take offence to that, I just prefer to go after both white hat and black hat streams. Or use blackhat techniques to enhance white hat ventures. I've made like $7 on adsense in the last 3 years, but back then I didn't really get it. Time to take it seriously now.
