Someone made a blog comment the other day about not having a button on the Paint.NET Donate page for Australian currency. I realized they were totally right and there was no reason to not have it, so today I added it. Also, freeware developers … do not underestimate having a release close to Christmas time. … Continue reading Australian $ added to Paint.NET Donations page
Earlier I wrote that I was receiving many small, suspicious donations. I notified PayPal about the issue, but unfortunately I only got a form-letter response back (and it took a week to get it). I refunded every single suspicious donation, and was getting worried that the refunding would then flag me as some participant. So … Continue reading Update on Suspicious Donations
Over the last several weeks I’ve been receiving a barrage of very small donations from a single person. They range in size from $0.01 USD to $0.05 USD, and the PayPal transaction fee results in a net of $0.00 for me. It’s obviously very suspicious, and my bet is that this individual is trying to … Continue reading Lots of small donations = Suspicious?
It’s been a little over 9 months since I left Facebook, and since then I’ve been hard at work on Paint.NET. (There were two primary reasons for me leaving Facebook: 1) it was way too exhausting, which is also part of the reason I haven’t been blogging much for several years, and 2) I really … Continue reading What’s next for Paint.NET in 2019?

You can also make use of the 30-day free trial to get started. (It may take a little bit of time before you … Continue reading paint.net is now available on the Windows Store!
Over the years I’ve had to put up with several individuals, and companies, trying to plagiarize Paint.NET by recompiling the program under a different product name and with their own name stamped into the credits. Sometimes they charge money for it. I even came up with my own term for it: “backspaceware.” Additionally, every once … Continue reading A new license for Paint.NET v3.5
As many people may already know, I am a big fan of the band Nine Inch Nails, aka NIN, which is basically Trent Reznor and whomever he hires to work and perform with him at any given time. Earlier in the week, Trent posted that a new album was available, titled “Ghosts I-IV” (volumes one … Continue reading Nine Inch Nails and the New Online Business Model
Awhile ago I blogged about making sure you accept Euros in addition to U.S. dollars. I also blogged on Friday that I had [finally] added Australian dollars to the Paint.NET donations page. Several were quick to comment that I did not have British pounds on there, and so I also decided to put that on … Continue reading Don’t Forget To Accept Pounds!
Yes, for goodness sake. This may seem obvious to anyone who’s been following the financial market in the slightest, but if your bank accounts are in USD$ then it is to your advantage to also find a way to directly accept EUR€ (euros). Case in point: the other day I received a donation for 20 … Continue reading Money Making Tip: Accept Euros
Overall usage is up only 3.8% for September, which isn’t too surprising nor is it bad. Vista share grew only a very small amount, and 64-bit is basically at the same level it was in August – it’s still disappointingly low. Overall there isn’t really much to say this month that hasn’t been said already … Continue reading September 2007 usage statistics
