    If you haven't filled out our survey within the last 6 months, please do so! Just <a href="http://survey.burstmedia.com/cgi-win/client.exe?readers,welcome,ad5477a,2000" target="_new_survey">click here for our survey</a>. It takes a few minutes to fill out, but provides our sponsors with much-needed information, and without them, we couldn't keep this place running for free!

    Thanks for all of those, Angelize. I really get a kick out of those cartoons. My friend is back at home now. Has some memory loss, but they say it'll get better.

    Keep with these updates Mike, cause I didn't even realise we were doing the survey again. I typically check new posts, so hardly ever see the main forum page.

    Survey completed!:D

    Tried to do the survey twice and both times ended up with a blank, non-responsive screen after the question "How frequently do you visit this site? (select one) ". A page reload gave me the message:

    "Sorry! You cannot continue with this survey! Either you have just completed the survey and then tried backing up with your Browser's Back key, or else you used up the time allotted for completing the survey.

    "If you did time out, you can try the survey again by entering again from the original location."

    I guess I got one of the answers wrong. :)

    I just took the survey.

    Weird thing though.

    A couple of the questions/answers that are posted on this thread aren't in the questionairre.

    The questions that I didn't see were :

    In which ways are you somehow involved in your company or organization's purchase decision for computers or related equipment? (Please check all that apply)

    Do you ….? (Please check all that apply)
    Research investment products online 20%
    Research insurance products online 10%
    Purchase investment products online 8%
    Purchase insurance products online 5%
    Maintain an online trading account 9%
    Manage your personal portfolio through an online service 13%
    Manage your household expenses through an online service 12%
    Bank online 36%
    None of the Above 51%



    Maybe those questions weren't asked due to my answers on previous questions ??

    And put Technical down because I wear many hats. Most of which involve CAD/CAM

    They change the questions every once in a while, Marioh... must have decided to get rid of those, maybe in favor for others? Or maybe just removed... *shrugs*

    You're the only one that I have seen "Administrator" next to the name. Are you the Top Dog here at TSG? Just curious.
