So, to the question of a forum.
Do I? Don't I?
I shall be running a poll regarding this for the rest of the year. Just so folks know I will be unlikely to be able both blog and moderate a forum, and given the choice I would rather stay with the blogging (I wonder if I will have to eat my hat with that statement later...?) So if a forum did go up it would most likely be moderated by another party, with me appearing a little less frequently.
Looking forward to people's answers.
(And I blame MooseGuy for this... ;)
