    My desktop gadget to your website keeps going blank within the past 2 days. If you have any ideas why, please email me. Thanks.

      I’ve noticed something similar myself; I think it’s due to bandwidth issues with the webhost I use. Unfortunately, I can’t upload the file and access it from WordPress so I have to use a third party hosting company.

      Haven’t noticed any issues over the past day or two so hopefully it should be okay now.

    Wow, I’m really impressed! You’ve brought together hundreds of news items in under nine months. I think it takes a lot of guts to commit to producing content for a website on such a consistent basis, especially if you work by yourself. I hope you stick to it, it’ll payoff for you in the long run. Good Luck!

    Thanks, I really appreciate that. I’m not sure why I do it LOL I’m sure there was a good reason; I started getting the press releases sent to me when I wrote for Astronomy magazine and I’m still getting them now, so it seemed like a shame to let them go to waste 🙂

    There are a bunch more stories out there on the ‘net but I don’t have time to report them all. I just post what’s in my inbox 🙂

    Thanks again for the support!
