  1. Hi Mark, thanks for posting this. Regular monthly updates would be great, very useful!

  2. max says:

    this news volume – and therefore monthly – is good in my eyes.
    i opt for 2nd-weekly updates if time shows that monthly becomes more than this.. otherwise it could become ‘too much’ to digest at a time..!?
    but anyhow: thanks
