Unless there is a rush in the next two hours, it appears only three of us were willing to ask a stranger.  :(

Numbers do seem to be dwindling again, sometimes wonder if its worth the hosting costs.  :-\ 

Guess from a site point of view it will become a case of use it or lose it eventually.   There's no easy answer either other than spreading the word, without spamming of course.

That said, I do intend renewing the hosting for another year, but see how it goes from there.  ;)
Thank You, "Guest" For Reading This Post.
