Since I started ahem collecting sewing, knitting and crochet patterns, I am constantly surprised by the quality of patterns offered for free. What motivates someone to release a pattern into the wild versus only offering it for money? And vice versa... I want all designers to make a buck. In fact, perhaps paying to use a design should be done via an honor system royalty fee paid directly to the designer. I.e. once you've made the item, you pay the designer. On the other hand, I've been occasionally disappointed when I pay for a pattern up front, only to find that it's not to my liking.

Just rambling...

eHarmony - Clones?

Is it just me, or do all the people featured in eHarmony's TV ads look like clones? Even the women look like the men...(or is it the other way around?!?) Downright creepy.
