Phenomenal Response

Thanks to everyone that has been to the site so far. I've received an enormous amount of feedback, and it is really appreciated. Keep it up. In the meantime, I wanted to give you a status report on where I am at with the changes I'm making, and clarify a few things.

1) The overwhelming majority of you want to see the Security Bulletin number in each post. That will apply retroactively to all posts as soon as I can compile them.

2) I had some issues with font tags when porting these posts from my .NET Weblog. I'll go through and clean them up shortly, so that the site looks a bit cleaner, and it's easier on the eyes.

3) I'll be removing the login section from the front page, because that's only for me to be able to go in and add new information. It has been very confusing to people, so I'll take it out. To clarify, everything on this site is free. We're not going to make you register for anything... it is all easily accessible. Though this site is actually sponsored by my company, you won't see any advertisements, or receive any e-mails advertising our products or services. You like what we're doing here? Click the logo in the menu area and see what else we do.

4) I had several requests for a web service to distribute the information. Actually, the entire site is syndicated through RSS. Just click the  icon on the top left corner, and you have a complete news feed containing all the posts. I'll have an FAQ soon on how to utilize this resource if you are new to the world of aggregators and RSS.

5) I would love to send out e-mails or set up a listserv for the site, but lets face it. You get way too many e-mails already. And I don't want my mailserver to be blacklisted. RSS is really the method of choice for getting the information whenever you want, and as I mentioned above, I will post a great informational piece on how to utilize RSS very soon.

That's about it for now. I'll probably make these changes over the weekend. Again, thank you so much for all the positive feedback, and keep it coming. This site is for you guys.
