John, I don't, and never will use FB. But I just had another quick word with The Geek, and he says, that he wouldn't know what he would be putting on FB, as regarding your request. ? Will help you more if I can. Just ask.

well, alot of people use FB and some are from the disability community some are from the Assitive Technology field i was thinking that most new users on FB don't know about HTG's involvement of spreading the word around about assitive tech. i also think it would help the site to get new users sign up. like i said i am promoting the forum not me. as i see it as a win win situation for both The Geek and the forum that i took pride in coming up withe idea in the first place. if the Geek is totally against it that's fine it's his site and FB page and i will shut up about it. i just think it would be a way to get the word out about 1 the site 2 assistive tech and if he wants to lay the forum at my doorstep that's fine i welcome the challenge. LH, i am not a ego booster person i don't have a big ego at all i know that the above might state otherwise but i don't, let's just say i am passionate about my beliefs in assistive techonology. Please relay this to the Geek and if he wants to email me personally he can. as you know my email address is in my profile.

John feel free to post links to HTG on FB. I advertise HTG by wearing an HTG cap whenever I go out, and sticking the occasional card up on the board in the local supermarket.
