Thanks for running this standup! I've never participated before, it looks like a great idea
I pushed out the prototype of my new newsletter, It's Not Magic. I intended to get feedback this week before I started promoting it, and someone subscribed from the IndieHackers milestone that I posted. Happy surprise, haha.
What's on deck for this week?
What's your goal for the month?
I want to get at least 10 subscribers for my newsletter, and have qualitative conversations with 5 of my newsletter subscribers about the challenges that they face in getting users in the door
Love your newsletter concept! I'm a lover of spreadsheet modeling as well, I wish more people understood how useful it is!
How did you fare last week?
Sorry for missing to post last week.
I did end up updating both Vimalin as well as releasing Vimarun.
Ended up selling 7 licenses during the "black friday" sales, so made a cool 70 bucks on Vimarun.
It's not a lot, but you have to start somewhere and at least there is some sales and not just people testing.
What's on deck for this week?
Very busy with a infrastructure change for my servers at the data center, but will try to look into a fix for some bug reports (one for vimalin and one for vimarun)
Goal for the month?
Same as my EOY goal.
End of Year goal
Keep on growing the sales for Vimalin.
Vimarun - run VMware Virtual Machines automatically.
Vimalin - automated Virtual Machine backups for VMware Fusion, Workstation and Player.
SEVENTY BUCKS. That's $70 you didn't have. Nice!! Pretty awesome that someone validated your work :)

Bit of a dumpster fire in getting anything notable done last week. Getting reoriented with the kids back home with remote learning has been a struggle. Positive note is I started with a new client in my consulting work.
Browse Me Later is an email reminder to help you set aside focused time to check out articles, websites, and videos.
I understand completely, 3 of em here. We homeschool though so it's pretty easy to take days off if we need to switch gears! Grats on the new client :)
We've considered moving them to home schooling because of the scheduling nightmare it's been. Only reason we haven't is because I don't trust my self to find social networks for them.
That's a biggie!
(Damn. Almost forgot to post today. Had to go "into work" since I swapped my Friday for Sunday. Back tomorrow with an update!) @vimalin Don't think I didn't notice you didn't post last week!
I had a nuts week last week, so many job interviews, a divorce trial. So I extended my weekend through today and I'm just posting now ;)
LOL, I didn't think it wasn't a problem, but had my mind elsewhere.
