    Hi – really good web site you have made. I enjoyed reading this posting. I did want to publish a remark to tell you that the design of this site is very aesthetically pleasing. I used to be a graphic designer, now I am a copy editor for a merchandising firm. I have always enjoyed playing with computing machines and am trying to learn code in my free time (which there is never enough of lol).

  4. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the writing on your web site. But I am utilising Firefox on a machine running version 9.04 of Xubuntu and the look and feel aren’t quite proper. Not a big deal, I can still basically read the articles and search for information, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of tough to apply with the config I’m running. Keep up the great work!

  5. Hello, been reading your blogging site for some time. I run a comparable blog page but I keep getting tons of spam remarks, how do you keep your blog so clean?
