    Phoronix: Win $500 USD From Phoronix, Take Our Survey

    IDG TechNetwork, our advertising partner for Phoronix, is running a site survey for us where you can win $500 USD. This survey should just take a matter of minutes and asks about your reading habits on Phoronix, what you would like to see, your job roles, how you interact with advertisements, etc. The results of this survey are used by IDG to help pull in new -- and relevant -- advertisers on Phoronix...

    If you can't afford to run a web site then don't run one, no body is forcing you to go bankrupt or something for spending 20 bucks a month.

    Sadly that method wouldn't be too sustainable.

    PTS is getting very, very easy to install and to use. I don't think it's going to be that much of a stretch.

    'buy now' links at the end of reviews with referral tags in the URL may not be a bad place to start.

    Your captive audience would have to be much larger then what phoronix is presently for that to start happening.

    Please do tell where you can get a server that can handle the traffic that this site gets as well as it's sister sites and handle project management efficiently with enough bandwidth that you are not paying overages, experiencing regular downtime, that isn't a shared server and has guaranteed bandwidth.

    Crap resellers need not apply.
