Wow Philipp you're really artistic. Did you hand draw these or was it a tablet or a mouse or what?

Great. I hope it will force some programmers to read something about antipatterns ... :)

Thank you for putting this on CafePress! It'll be adorning my cubicle by Chirstmas. At last I can finally say, "How badly do you want a bunch of dependency rabbits roaming around?" without getting blank stares.

Would be neat to get a photo of your cubicle iwhen you put this up Eric (and also tell us about the quality of the poster print...).

WOAH! There's been a Blogoscoped store on CafePress since 2005??!?? I didn't know about this until you posted the link on the bottom of this post!

Do you make a significant amount of money from it? Why don't you link to it somewhere obvious?

> Do you make a significant amount of money from it? Why don't you link to it somewhere obvious?

Nope, not really. Depending on how things go I may lose money from the store, since I pay a premium account for it to be able to customize the store template and upload as many products as I want. But I did sell some items through it in the past, it's not that it didn't ever make money. My first/ main goal would be to cover the costs I'm paying to Cafepress.

I did have it linked from the sidebar for a while in the old design, and sometimes in the past put in an an advertisement in the AdSense section, but not too many items were sold, so I slightly scrapped the idea. But I still kinda like to be able to customize stuff like shirts or mugs, it's fun. Maybe if I add more new items I can bring back the link somewhere in the navigation.

Here's the shop page for reference:

1. Do some hi-res versions of Programming Monsters
2. Turn it into a Cafe Press calendar
3. Get it picked up by Digg an SlashDot
4. Profit!
