    I just noticed today that Frank Hoose put up a notice on 8-03-2018 that the Premium Content and YouTube channel are not providing enough income and that he is looking for other means to reduce cost or get support.

    I interpret this to mean that perhaps the site will change or be lost. I don't want to speculate any further.

    For those that have never been there:

    Media's an increasingly tough game. And getting tougher, with Facebook and Google hoovering up 85 per cent of all new online advertising spending.

    With the severity now imposed on Chinese imports in the USA, I'm wondering whether 'model engineering' which is so small as to be negligible in the real economy, will simply not survive.

    As I watch the changes, Brexit, the projected rise in house rents, the rise in interest rates and the staggering rises in fuel bills, one simply has to sit back and THINK.

    I remain more than a little apprehensive and certainly curious regarding the outcome.

    Cheers?
