I'll put a simple one together at some point soon(ish) - even if it's just a
simple holding page, until I can get around to something better.

If there's anything specific that people think should go on the site, though
- bring the subject up next Wednesday evening.

Yup. That's another possibility - but one flaw with it is that it would be
Yet Another Place for People to Have to Look [tm].

It's a good example, though, of how the domain could prove more useful than
I thought when I registered it this morning.

It'll be hosted through my existing set-up, which does have limits, but it's
been more than adequate for everything I've set up so far. (Sites like
ROOL's have much higher bandwidth requirements, but that's because they have
more/bigger things for people to download - notably including the sources).

I don't remember seeing him at the last couple. Was he there?
