    I think it's fantastic that the site is doing so well, and that this role has come about because of this - it really is great news.

    I do have a complaint however. I'm using the site less and less, and now only check it a few times each week because I can't be bothered to wait 3 minutes each time for it to load up. Out of all the forums I frequent (all with a really active user group) this has got to be the slowest to load. Surely if money exists for a new full-time role, money should exist for better/faster hosting?

    I'm not telling anybody how to do their job, I mean look how far you've come - It's just something that I have noticed lately and maybe something that should be considered.

    I take it back, although EduGeek appears to be slower than other sites I go on it seems that the problem may be the ISP at school.

    Sorry EduGeek

    I wish you all the best for the future.

    I found the site by accident, I cannot recall how. But since then I have been helped, helped others, scrotched to death in a flame war and had my ribs tickled to the point of agony.

    Where would I be without it?

    I've often wondered, does anyone have any screen shots of the original PHPBB based forum that edugeek used to be? The archived page on the waybackmachine doesn't load, because (understandably) none of the graphics exist anymore!

    Congrats. Hope it all pans out for you (and for us).

    Perhaps you can get Bett to sponsor you. Give you a free stand every year.

    err we already get it free well the space we get free... or what that meant to be with a ..

    In case it was serious we get space free but then we have to pay all the extras on top and heck they cost a lot and then we have to pay for you lot to come down so hotels, food, drink and the odd pizza.

    Well done! Don't forget to point the webcam at the coffee pot and buy a drinks machine that lets us check it's stock levels for maximum geekness.

    Congratulations Chris, it couldn't happen to a nicer Meat Loaf look-alike. (sorry). Seriously, all the best.
