No one from Italy has been by my blog on an Elfo search, so Albert Callegari remains happily ignorant of what I think of his Bravenet message board and visitor counters. But, you know, recording studios do this. They get caught up in the business of recording and forget to tend their websites appropriately. Next I will write about the …
