A pain to use over a dial up connection. I am afraid that, given the reluctance of organisers to keep their entries up to date in other web based directories, it will be about as useful as EFDSS's late and unlamented Root Source site after a year or so.
It is clearly the case that shifting Googles tiles is not something you want to do on dial-up. There are ways round it, which I shall apply myself to in good time.
There are ways of keeping entries up to date. The most important which I have been pedalling from the start is that entries should be made by organisers, and that their contact details should be valid, so that you can get ongoing confirmation.
Another is having an application which is so attractive that it gets used. It is the knife in the draw which goes rusty, not the one in the hand.
Mmm - quite like that :-)
