Hi Lewis,

Nic of you to drop in. Pretty cool how one can look at the internet and see who has linked to one's work, isn't it? A good way to prevent copyright infrigement!

That's pretty cool.

I never heard of Scott, but I saw your site layout, and was like, "####, this looks like Rockwell's site!" Then when I saw your sriting style and references to Ken, I knew you had to be a bit of afan.

Keep writing about older gear! That's all I can say...it's a good niche.
