I really would like it if you guys had made this puritanical information and a few of your other things in the style of a video clip, have you made any video tutorials? I am really one of those individuals that grasp a lot more material from seeing stuff in action and I would appreciate it if you were able to present your information like that. It looks like all your stuff is well thought out and it would really make my day to find a couple after i revisit. It is nice to finally find a website that the owner cares about. Do you allow trackbacks I would absolutely like to give you people some credit for your stuff? We would particularly want to include this one if it's okay. I will just bookmark this entry in case you can't find time to get back to me.
