Congratulations, and thankyou for securing Amiga.org for the foreseeable future.

'Custodian' seems a well chosen word - it must be a bit like taking ownership of the village pub.

Nice to read. I believe .org is now in even better hands than before.

(just noticed that site cgraphics could use more aros kitties and morphos butterflies to stress the multiflavour nature of the site...?)
