Buy us a Cup of Coffee

[inline:1]
So, you read a few things here that helped you get through a little bump in the technology super highway. It might not have been a huge thing but it sure made your life easier, saved you some time and likely a few bucks too. Being the friendly sort that you are, if we worked just down the street from you, next door or upstairs, chances are you'd offer to buy us a cup of coffee or perhaps a beer to say 'thanks for the help'. That's great, we really appreciate the gesture and here's how you can make it happen.

In this online community we live in, the world has become 'right next door' so here's more about how to buy us a virtual cup of coffee to say "thanks".

Typically a large, traditional espresso style coffee at Starbucks or a similar coffee house goes for about US $5.00. If we went to Krispy Kream donuts we could get a large coffee and a couple of donuts for just about the same price but that might not sit well on our waist lines. Of course, if it was after 5 p.m. we might even share a 'wobbly pop' (aka beer or brewski) down at the corner Pub, again for about the same price.

So, if you'd like to buy us that cup of coffee then please click here and fill in the US $5.00 shareware fee field:kagi:. If you're so inclined, we'll even mail you the receipt for tax purposes, just send us an email with your mailing address and we'll put it in the mail (seriously). Smile

So, 'cheers' and thanks in advance for sharing a cup of coffee and helping support caddpower.com

Buy us Lunch

Well, something here really saved you some time and money and helped you clear a significant hurdle! Wow, that's great, we're glad we could help. Being the gracious person that you are, you'd like to buy us lunch as a way of saying thanks for the help and here's more on how you can do that.

We know this great little Mexican place just down the road. They're family owned and operated and serve up great food at really reasonable prices (we like supporting the little guy)! They do breakfast too which can be kind of nice if we've been working late hours posting articles and how to tutorials and movies, and figure it's easier to stay up and go eat than go to bed 'cos it's so early in the morning.

Lunch typically goes for between $5 and $8 bucks. Toss in a drink and a small tip and it's so close to US$10 that we'll just leave the 10 spot on the table and call it even. So, if you'd like to buy us lunch (or perhaps breakfast) please click here and fill in the US $10.00 shareware fee, quantity 1:kagi: If you're really happy and would like us to take our spouse for lunch too then you're welcome to fill in a quantity of 2 for a total of US $20 which will cover the lunch tab including tip. If you're so inclined, we'll even mail you the receipt for tax purposes, just send us an email with your mailing address and we'll put it in the mail (seriously). Smile

Thanks for buying us lunch and helping support caddpower.com

Buy us Dinner

The things you've read here have really helped save you and your staff a lot of time and we all know time is money. Gee, the boss is going to be thrilled with you (or maybe you're thrilled 'cos you are the boss!).

Now that we've helped you out and you're saving some money and hopefully having a bit more fun in the process (or you're less stressed out), dinner is what you're thinking is a fair trade. That's great, this seems like a win-win situation for everyone! Let's see how this might work.

What if we managed to save you 5, 10, 30 or even 60 minutes a week. Or perhaps we showed you something or answered a question that you just couldn't figure out that was worth hours or potentially even days of your time hunting and pecking to figure out how to make it work. If your charge out rate is between $60, $90 or possibly even in the range of $120 per hour you can see how the time and $'s can really add up fast!

Maybe we saved you, your company or the company you work for a pile of money because the answer we provided here was passed along to 3 or more staffers who now benefit from that same time/$ saving! Even if it was only 2 minutes per week it would still save you a lot of time and money over the course of a year whether you're an owner/operator, mid size or large firm.

The math can get pretty crazy, pretty quickly but it becomes apparent that saving time is saving money.

Now that we've made you some money by saving you time, we really appreciate the fact you'd like to buy us dinner as a way of saying thank you. After all, if we worked next door or down the street or upstairs you likely wouldn't hesitate since you really do appreciate good help and buying dinner just feels like the right thing to do. Well, in this internet age, we're all just down the street or upstairs so technology makes it easy.

There are many places to go for dinner here and they're all pretty good. A decent dinner at a middle of the road steak house can run anywhere from $50 on up. Other places have nice meals for the $25 range so there are plenty of choices. If we start to add in a bottle of wine then prices go up from there. If you were particularly thrilled with the level of help, education or support you received and how much money it saved you then we'd be remiss if we didn't point out we're partial to a nice after dinner drink (there is a particularly nice 25 year old single malt scotch that goes for $45/glass which we very much enjoy).

Ultimately we leave it up to you as to how much of a night out you'd like to share.

All you have to do is visit this link and enter the desired quantity in the $10.00 Shareware field:kagi: For example, if you'd like to buy us a nice $30 entree then enter a quantity of 3 for the $10 line item. That really nice steak dinner with all the trimmings would want a quantity of 5 for $10.00 line item. Of course if you'd like to include a nice single malt scotch to round out the evening then call it a quantity of 10 for an even US$100. If you like, we'll include a photo of us enjoying the evening along with the receipt for tax purposes -- just send us an email with your mailing address and we'll put it in the mail (seriously). Smile

We really do appreciate you're supporting our efforts here at caddpower.com. You clearly understand the time=money equation and how much effort really goes into making something like this work!

Cheers and thanks again!
