thanks Dave (hal9k talk:)

everybody reacts positively to positive incentives (just an economist
lapalissade, but yeah;)

whether it's still alpha?

well, yes. on my call and personal stance there's only two phases to
software life cycle: alpha and omega. anything in between is just
marketing gibberish

alpha is when some software "entity" is actually running to its users
benefit. whether saying it does it well or not--in my experience it
often does not--it's strictly a user's prerogative, not a developer's one.

while in this so-called alpha phase, all software lingers in a more or
less broken state. yes, broken. nothing is perfect and never will, until...

then, paraphrasing Exupéry's, only when the last user leaves the
building then you know it reached ultimate perfection and that my
friend, it's when you know it reached omega :)

cheers
