I hope Russell you will allow me to ask if certain Birding-aus members who have their own website or know about these things can provide me with some information. Others - please delete!
I received an email from a US company wanting to publish my website on CD-ROM called the World Online Digest, which is distributed to subscribers in the UK and Australia who do not have access to the Internet; with the CD-ROM, they can browse family-friendly Web sites without paying for an Internet connection. It appears they do charge subscribers but don't say how much. I checked out their website and it's good-looking but basic, with US phone numbers and email addresses.
With so many suspicious schemes, email databases, viruses, hoaxes and what not going around I'm not sure about this; I thought it might be a good idea and should be harmless enough?? Does anybody else know anything about this?
Many thanks in advance
Peter Waanders
