"I wish to congratulate you for finding new web sites each week…I have found many interesting ways of surfing the net, faxing free on the Internet, sending cards, and lately visiting the Power House, playing with colour tests and using a time zone converter which is very convenient as I correspond with friends all over the world. I hope you will keep the good work." - Philip Morlet, Brisbane.
