Thank you for that info. As a matter of principle all posters should
declare any commercial affliation which is relevant to their post.
However his site does appear to be of interest, I've registered and keep
an open mind. I suspect its usefulness will be measured by how often I
go back. 

In response to his comment that questions aren't answered very quickly,
many of the questions on here are clearly from lazy students looking for
info for exam/project questions. They can't expect busy research
professionals to do their study for them...(little things like google,
webferret, scirius or heaven forfend, going to the library and reading a
review or even a research paper!)

When intelligent questions are posted they tend to be answered quickly,
even if from students when they had clearly put some serious thought
into the topic. For example the recent citrate cycle topic.
