I think that sometimes, for a solo developer, just getting the software sorted is quite enough without the drain on time and resources that running a website entails. That's why we have drobe and its monthly roundup of software developments.
Alas, it is also true that in a small market such as ours we are reliant on the often herculian labours of individuals to pull off miracles. The main thing is not to take things when they do happen (like the Iyonix, and Adjust) for granted. Support and encourage, lads - or we'll go nowhere.
