    Your site has been IMMENSELY helpful to me in clearing up the particulars and technicalities of doing this kind of work. I was extremely happy to find it and see it set up in such a graphically pleasing, user-friendly way.

    The Devil’s in the details and it’s the little things that kill…so your site has made a huge difference in seeming like a complete amateur and being an adequate neophyte. Basically, satisfactory work and being asked back.

    THANK YOU for what you’ve done here.
    It’s much, much appreciated. And again: not a boring site! Visually appealing and very readable—not just reams of dry text, but actually engaging!

    Thanks again!
