Hi. Welcome to The Gun Rack. No doubt, your journey here has been a long one. But rejoice! For you have arrived at a place like no other. A place where goats and Chevettes dwell in harmony. A place where Glock fanboys and HiPoint hipsters coexist with mutual respect for one another. A place where even crocs are considered cool. Well, not really, but those that wear them are still accepted. Hell, even the owner of the site is a kilt wearing Californium. So register, log in, and become a part of the most eclectic gun forum on the interwebs. You'll be glad you did 😉

    I try to remember what the great theologian Mick Jagger once said. "You can't always get what you want."

    Joking aside, life is full of little thorns, and a few big ones. On the list of life thorns I would like to think we all can agree that this is a pretty small one.

    First off I am sorry you feel that way. But let me fill you in on the Issue, I had to run a patch update that was required by TT as the site gets a very small stipend from allowing them to have advertisers show up in TT when you connect to my site. The issues was that the old version was not allow hits to count towards earning that stipend but TT was still generating AD revenue. I spent something close to 12 hours tearing apart the site and trying to get the version they provided and the patches they provided to work correctly before I placed the ticket with them. I followed up with them 24 hour 48 hour and 72 hours later and then went back and week later still waiting for a response from. At that point I said screw it and I may or may not work on TT in the future.

    Now to understand why I gave up on getting their software to work correctly is this; When I am doing consulting work my rates average $60/hour and I spent 12+ hours on this one issue. If this has was client he would have paid me close to $720 for not accomplishing anything. When I look at the amount that TT paid me for advertisement last year it was roughly $8. So I decided that peoples preferences did not justify the amount of time I had invested in trying to resolve the issue.

    @Daedalus, given those facts, I think I would have quit working on it after an hour, you know, the whole cost/benefit thing! :D

    Thanks for the reply, Jacques. I do understand the situation better with that explanation.
