What Are We Doing With the Extra $10?

Today we announced that the subscription price for WinCustomize was going to go up $10/year from $20 to $30.  Now, of course we had to come up with a good justification for this, something that would fool the sheep of the forums into believing we did this for their own good and that they're getting the better end of the deal.

But, just between you and me?  Complete BS. 

As some of you may know, today's Angie's birthday, so as a gift the company bought her a new car...

So that would have probably accounted for a $2.50 increase per subscription, but some of us were looking at that car and asked "What about us?"  After some haggling and stomping of feet and numerous rude gestures, we sold upper management on the idea of the Stardock Porsche Fleet...

Each, of course, added $2.50 to the unit cost of a WinCustomize subscription. 

That's why the subscription is now $10 more per year.  Gotta pay for the fancy cars!

Now, I know some of you are probably getting worked up about this turn of events, especially considering how we told you it was really about the free skins, and not the Porsche fleet.  To calm your nerves, here's a serene picture of some geese...

That's right, here at Stardock HQ we have a fleet of Porsches AND cute little baby geese!

No kidding.

Actually, they run on the tears of clubbed baby seals.  And that stuff is WAY more expensive than gas, but we decided to eat the cost on that one ourselves.

Not mine- mine runs off Technical advisor tears and sweat.  I get it as a company benefit.  Of course, I don't usually drive mine.  I just get in it and make vroom vroom noises.

I sold it to buy shoes.  I like shoes.  No kidding.

Not bad, but I would have suggested something more along the lines of this. . .

Jafo,

I could have sworn Brad said he mailed you one last week. You didn't get it yet?

Must be stuck at customs. Or, maybe a Kangaroo drove off with it.
