    It's really a good document ;)

    I added my own personal star rating to most links from * (for mediocre, has no use to promote trash sites ) to ***** for excellence.

    I tried to have an animalrating similar to that of tucows but alas I didn't find apropiate pictures

    Hendrik wanted to have all postings to this forum emailed to him automatically - there's dedication for you!

    I've now done this so, hopefully, he'll get this and know it's working!
