My guess is that you put way more effort into all this technology than most of us realize. I just want to say a big thank you for all the work you put into giving us a great way to share experiences, ideas and buy/sell opportunities. The increased traffic speaks to the success of your work. Until you are better paid - thanks again.

OK enough geek talk, you're free to use everything on the site again!

The pages load a little quicker now too.

Thanks for your patience and your suggestions.
