    Capnjuan (RIP, brother):

    And thank you for single-handedly re-introducing the S100 and other solid body guitars. It was you and your posse that put them back in front of the members ... until you showed up and your enthusiasm made them interesting again, nobody had paid much attention to them.

    Hi John: I was thinking about that management issue myself and realized that it probably costs less in time for Don to run a free board than to try to manage a roster as you point out. Agree with you about "free rides", 'cause I lurked around here for a couple of years before officially "signing up" myself! We oughta make it easy for interested parties to get "free samples" ! :lol:
    I'm most in favor of the merchandise sales supplemented by voluntary contribs and donation calls as needed. The advertising query was more to suggest a possible a "stick" to use on Ultra Web :mrgreen: I just don't know if there could be any actual viability to the suggestion without excessive unwanted marketing as you describe.

    Hi Al: See new thread on this subject. Think about copying your thoughts over there. I'm going to wait a while before repeating what I posted above. John

    Good work John and I'd rather pay than the alternatives you cite!!
    I'm on board with that too. I'll also point out that one of the things that I really like about LTG is its quick response. It's always the first screen to refresh when I bring up my tabbed browser. The reason this is so (I think) is *because* there's none of that extraneous fetching of ads from other sites. LTG rocks.
