Hi Deepgeek,

I happen to enjoy hearing you - also we are very much in agreement. I
probably wasn't clear enough but I am not suggesting we host our own
forums which is why I suggested taking dann up on his offer to host it
over at tllts.org.

But I don't particularly care so long as there is some place.

Ken.
