      That is awesome Timon, Congratulations!Its great to read when soneome reaches a goal like that as it gives people the encouragement that they too can reach similar goals (if they put in the effort).I've just lost my job which is a bad bad thing, but it is also good because it means now I have more time to devote to my own websites and my own goals.Well done on reaching your goal !!
