hiya all,

Great work Nick, it's looking excellent!

Some comments from an ex-camwestie...

'Linkrot' is always a problem, sadly, and it's bad form on the *other* 
links, not us, but yes, it's good to update these.

I'd love it if this page kept being updated. I inserted the paragraph at 
the top to warn people it'd 'age' a bit, as I wouldn't be able to keep 
working on it. But this was a shame as we used to be the top Australian 
site for a serach on peak oil in google, and now, amazingly, we're third:

http://www.google.com.au/search?q=peak+oil+site%3A.au&btnG=Google+Search

Further to our kudos, we were one of the first sites in Australia to 
start covering this issue, way back in 2000.

Perhaps you could keep linking to cycling and peak oil specific sites. 
But my rationale for stopping general links is that now there are much 
better sites doing the work already, like http://energybulletin.net/

Happy cycling - we're having a ball in the Gong...

Cheers,
Marty
