you should redirect it to my site...cough cough.
Looked ok though... little slow to load. But ok...
Was it a lightening bolt from a clear blue sky?
Great idea Matt! Are you prepared for the bandwidth bills?
It will get better! Lots of big time famous launches had rough starts. Could you tide us over by telling us the ploidy of Coleoidea?
