What’s all that about?

There was a blip new year’s eve when, along with several others hosted by the same ISP were hacked by some uncharitable git who replaced all our files with a single page in Arabic.
Then all of a sudden – 1,330 hits on the 6th of January – just three short of our best ever the day after launch night.
It is pretty certain this was the result of our calendar being featured on the main page of the AOL website. In fact a friend of Miss April’s Dad emailed to say he had gone into an internet cafe in New York generic cialis and the first thing he saw as he logged on was a feature on our calendar!
World Famous Eh!
The feature is now on the AOL Ruby Room blog featuring Miss February illustrating the article Bizarre cheeky calendars as well as joining Miss March, Mr March and Mr September in the “Eye Candy” slide show!

Read the absolutely fabulous review on the Rhuthun blog. It is so nice that someone has actually gone out and bought a copy of the calendar to take proper considered look at its aims and aspirations. And so refreshing to see something written from the heart, rather than use our press releases almost verbatim. We are grateful, of course for the publicity we get from all quarters. The more the merrier. But a big thanks to Non Liquet, whoever you are (it is not clear!).
