That is why we're working on both improving the site itself (fixing issues with 
the sub-release areas), as well as trying to a more regular monthly notice up 
... I find a jump in stats each time I do so as more ppl find out about it ...

Report I did a few months back shows only 85 Countries reporting in, so 
although its just one host here and there, adding 40 new countries is cool ...
