AVault: Did you ever anticipate VE would grow as big as it has? To what do you attribute this success?
Wilson: A very hard question. It’s done out of fun, and I think readers can see through people that just hop on the “Oh boy, I’m going to start a web site and make money and get free hardware, even though it’s not something I really enjoy doing” bandwagon. People can tell when somebody is enjoying what they are doing, and for the most part, except on some off-days, I really enjoy it, after all this time. I think the other part that has helped is being consistent. No matter how tired I am, how beat I am from Kung Fu, how many ribs I have broken, what painkillers I’m on or anything else, I always try to keep the page updated. Also, having a chronic case of insomnia helps tremendously! And finally, I think keeping it fun helps. I mean, for God’s sake (God, depending on who you are and what you believe), we’re talking about games here, so you shouldn’t sound too professional. We’re not talking about Wall Street.
