20th April.

Job listings...Job listings...Job listings...
Gaming floor constantly needs more job listings. If your company needs quality staff then make use of our emloyment section and in January there were 5,500 visitors. For $150 per-month with a fully formatted Ad., logo and links it really is a bargain. Ian



This is a question I occasionally get asked.
Q. How many people visit the message board. ?

A. There is a counter but also looking at my log files in March... 
3804       /meeting/index.htm
So 120+ a day.
I do not push it too hard though as I would like the board to remain casino people.
Let me know if you have any ideas on how the service could be improved. One thing that is discounted though is any form of membership/password system.

A major priority is now attracting more advertising to Gaming floor as well as getting more job listings. Ian

P.S. This section is also protected from robot indexing so email addresses are not picked up.

HELLO FROM!: Bill & Sandy Stemp
PRESENTLY IN: Howzit?
Bumped into Paul ‘Dodgy’ Winder, who pointed me to this site. Totally amazed (mostly because I thought everyone I worked with was illiterate - and now you can even use a PC) at some of the names I came across in the archives. Still married to Sandy (Brady) and currently retired in Franschhoek, Cape Winelands. I’m still the same, if you look past the darby and grey hair. Haven’t kept in touch with anyone and not sure I want to (less hangovers that way), but do drop me a line if you like.

HELLO FROM!: The Status Quo
PRESENTLY IN: With so many of us casino people travelling the world searching for pastures new can we please add to this site a travel section so we can exchange info on what sites to use for cheap flights, what hotels to stay in, things not to be missed in the places you go to etc etc. I ask because i need to search for flights and it takes ages to find best deals but we all travel almost everyone of us so lets exchange what we know about the places we know. please
E-MAIL: deadmandshand@hotmail.co.uk

I have taken onboard what you say and I myself have a list of different bookmarks that I use when looking for the best deals. May post them on a new page. Prices I know vary considerably online so it's always a good idea to shop around. For Hire cars alone I may check at least 5 different companies before making a decision. Ian

9th March
 UK domain name - www.bet-uk.com
I have just been informed that this domain name is for sale. I already have the .co.uk

With the U.K. now becoming the world leader in offering gaming services this is a superb name. The idea would be to set up a site specialising only in UK based gambling, gaming and betting operations.

If any visitors are interested in partnering in this project let me know. There will be an investment required to get the venture off the ground. Ian
