Craig works at another job, and only occasionally devotes time to his brainchild – helping workers with the support staff. Powerful servers and a few support people are paid for by the only paid ads – job openings from major firms in major U.S. metroplexes. Profit stays zero – it’s a company principle, Craig’s principle.

- searching for various services related to beauty and health, education, home help, finance, relocation, and more;
- There is a forum on a huge number of topics, though I myself have never used it.
