I'm still mystified as to why there is any contraversy here. The CR site has or at one time has had links to a number of other web sites, including, I think, RetroRaleigh, Rivendell, Sheldon's site, The PX-10 site, Hetchins, Mercian, Caygill and many others. While the CR site has the most classic stuff, these other sites are a great resource as well, which is exactly why Dale linked to them. I think most members have welcomed the additions of new sites to Dale's resource page. Now some UK members announce adding another site to the many already available and we suddenly start debating whether this is a good thing. Why would it not be? No one questioned the establishment of the PX-10 site or saw it as a threat. I'm looking forward to another resource.

Regards,

Jerry Moos
