That's really simply a matter of convenience. Yes, it's promotional, but there's no particular reason it needs to be moving and branded and such. It's just: I have limited willingness to sit and futz with links, and making a whole set of links (with price estimates, pictures, etc) in a pretty arrangement is beyond that. A widget isn't. :-P If we had someone willing to do design work on our website (any takers? services are donations too) then perhaps this could be solved...

I *think* I got everything from the recommendations thread that wasn't language-specific. Not trying to do any sort of enge sway here, just to make sure that it'd be of interest to conlangers generally (of whatever persuasion) or at least significant portions thereof. If I missed something, it's due to oversight, not malice. ;-)

All added. - Sai P.S. Your reply-to is weird; it double-lists CONLANG in addition to your personal address.
