  It is a good site too, which helps.

  I agree, and would also pimp my site ;)

  My suggestion would be to move the URLs listed in the page:


  I'm not too sure which way it should be, either move the misc/related
 sites into support#web, or vice-versa.  But having two lists which
 overlap so significantly is unnecessary duplication IMHO.

   Perhaps a seperate tree '/support/web', or similar?
