To all our readers and visitors to this site Best Wishes for a
Good, Healthy and Happy 2018.
As usual we start the year by looking back on 2017.
The site was unavailable for 3 days in 2017, as a party that
delivered content protection and was discontinued actually
altered the site destination numbers, the day their contract
ran out , making it impossible to find the site. This information
comes from the provider and they changed it back. With our
apologies. The internet is full of really bad people and one
cannot be careful enough. Keep your protection up-to-date
and back up files regularly.
Nevertheless we had a record number of visitors, in the full
year over 21,200, mostly new but also approx. 12% of repeat
visitors. Thank you for visiting the site, your always positive
comments on the site, much appreciated.

the U.S.A. And thereafter mostly from English speaking countries.
UK is second with almost 9%, Canada third with almost 5%,
Australia 4th with almost 4% and Singapore 5th with almost 5%.
The first non English speaking country is The Netherlands in 6th place.
The top 10 is rounded out by The Philippines, India, Malaysia (2 more
English speaking countries) and France in 10th place.
