Crikey, what have I started?
I echo all the contributors to this forum's sentiments, particularly ChrisD. John, you are doing a fantastic job (don't know where you find the time!)as the site works exceptionally well due to the fact that it is topical, fun and educational. It does not rely on fancy plug-ins which similar sites depend on to keep you coming back. I suspect most people who visit rib.net are generally pretty experienced in one way or another with anything to do with RIBS. I certainly visit regularly as there is a wealth of information to be found here. The thoughts on starting another publication are great,(me being selfish) if the market could support another mag ?
You,(John) probably have an excellent application (I think you explained it to me at Ribex)which monitors your 'hit-rate' and who exactly is logging on. Surely this is great information to take to manufacturers in tempting them to buy space for advertising features... this could be educational in nature, and not just 'selling your soul'
I would also wholeheartedly support some or other subscription to this excellent mouthpiece!
