<-- Well..... Quite frankly Marshall, I don't give a damn where it's located. There was a need and I 
made an offer. Don't bite my head off about it!

It seems like if the ohnosec.org/drupal/ site was the place to be putting stuff, others would have 
done it before now.

<-- Yep, it's SUPPOSED to be. When I was starting out that site left LOTS to be desired, hence why I 
created the allstarnode.com BB site.

 > Having multiple websites will confuse new users on where to get information.
<-- Google will find GOOD information no matter WHERE it's located.

Back to sleep,
