Amen. I could see something to it if Rick is out to make a few bucks from it. Nothing wrong with that since people do like to be compensated for their efforts, but if it's just something done for love of the hobby then I would think all avenues of distribution are worthwhile. Why not have a regular show on YouTube while we're at it. People could actually showcase their languages so others can actually *hear* them instead of just describing them with ASCII text. Or maybe even a regularly scheduled podcast?
