The State of Panbo, 10/1/2006

State of Panbo

Dear readers, it’s time for another entry (also here and here) on the state of Panbo:

*  If you’ve been accessing this blog with an RSS reader, instead of going directly to the site, you may be annoyed because I recently changed the feed from full on to just summaries. I’m sorry about that, but it’s part of a transition meant to generate some income for improving the site, and also for the efforts of yours truly (direct contributions are also welcome).

*  In that regard, Panbo will soon have a major sponsor (whose identity will be no surprise), as well as some small banner space for “Friends of Panbo” sub sponsors. Please e-mail me if your organization is interested, and hasn’t already been in touch. No worries, though, Panbo will not get plastered with ads; and, hopefully, you’ll see improvements like full length reviews and forums in due time.

*  Finally, I’m just about to embark on a rigorous travel schedule—a press tour of Cape Town, South Africa, boatbuilders and boat show; the NMEA Conference in Naples, Florida; the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show (aka FLIBS); and METS in Amsterdam. Posting will necessarily be choppy, but, by golly, I should get a good look at what’s new in electronics, not mention some insight into how they’re used on the other side of the planet.

PS. Please note that using a feed reader will still keep you informed about the when and what of new entries; you’ll just have to click over to to read the whole thing.

PPS. I hauled my boats last week, and turned on the house heat today. Ralph, is now serviced and sitting on a refurbished trailer ready for another happy owner (major electronics shown below excepted).

    I don’t mind clicking over to your site to read the full entry at all, however…..
    I’m using IE7’s feed and if I click on Panbo’s feed notification then click on the header to go to the full site, it takes FOREVER to load. Normally, I would suspect something like this to be a problem on my end, but I subscribe to other feeds and haven’t noticed this delay.
    So I just type the url into the address bar and come to your site that way when I get a feed notification.
