None of you will have noticed that and are now actually hosting Microcosm which is a Microsoft portal of some sorts.

I was approached about a month ago to see if I would sell Hell yes. I suggested $3000 as I could not be bothered getting into a to and fro debate on the price. I also offered for $2000. Both suggested prices were accepted and the domain transfer proceeded using Network Solutions certified offer service. I am yet to receive the checks but I am well chuffed and after £2000 in the last 2 months on car repairs – it is definitely needed.

I have since purchased and so my Aggreg8 RSS reader will be moving there once I get a chance.

    Once we acquire enough data from the Rhapsody API, we should have pretty decent matching.
