  5. Steven: That’s great, congratulations. I don’t know of it. I have recently joined alternativeenergy.com where I’ve had some interesting discussion already. Do you want to submit a guest article on dmoz.org for this site? It could be brief (or any length). Jim

  6. Steven: I should add that I did receive your prior email about dmoz but hadn’t had time to follow up on it yet.
