It seemed kind of quiet here lately so I thought I'd throw this out on the table as a question. I appologize if it's inappropriate and will understand if the list Mom decides to yank it. I have a number of ideas for small shareware programs. I'm not expecting to became wealthy or dreaming of retiring early, etc., etc. but I think it would be neat to make a few bucks from programming. I'm sure others here have thought about it and I know some of you are doing it succesfully now. I'm hoping to tap some of the great minds here on how to proceed. I've searched around on the list and on the internet but I'm afraid that much of the info out there may be quite dated and I thought it would be nice to get all your thoughts in one place. Here's the short question: How to get started? Here's the longer (set of) questions. Do I need my own website and or domain name or can I use my own ISP personal site? Are there cheap or free domain registrars or hosting providers that you would recommend? Do I need another host to provide a download portal or bandwidth? How does one setup a Paypal account, what is the cost? (or is this a bad idea) Are there other (better) methods of receiving payment? Are there places to publish (version tracker) etc. that you'd recommend (or NOT recommend)?
