They subscribe to Google's AdSense program and serve ads.
As the ads earn money, the money is automatically used to buy shares of stock in Google (GOOG).

Overall, I'm up
$263.89 but a couple of other folks are 3+months late on their loans. This is the part where it gets a little scary.

We are hiring

My team is hiring developers again. If you or someone you know wants to work in midtown in the financial industry, get in touch.

.Net, C#, Web Service, SQL, XML, ADO.NET, Object Oriented, Design Pattern, Excel programming is a plus
You'll be talking to customers, so be able to speak well. In other news, I've been racking my brains for a way to screen resumes for team players without having to look for the words "Team Player" - I think you just have to find that bit in the interview.

Blogger thought I was a spam blog

Don't know what made me look like a spam blog, but I had to get reviewed by a human to turn posting back on.
