First repeat customer, woohoo!

So I released a new app in early February and sent an email the other day offering it at 50% discount to my existing customers.  Got my first payment today from one.  :)  I'm starting to like this software business.

Great news. Keep going.

Aside: Maybe investigate using a different host, given weird issues reported in your previous post.
