So thanks to those whose efforts have contributed to the content, either by putting pen to paper and contributing/commenting or simply by getting between the camera and horizon. Thanks also to the visitors – it is encouraging to see that somebody deemed us worthy of a visit. And yes, we do appreciate that in the ethereal webby world 100,000 in 30 months is very, very small beer – we like to think of our visitors in terms of quality rather than sheer quantity 😉
