When I accessed the directory:

"Sorry, this site is temporarily unavailable!

transfer. Visit our help area for more information. "

I don't think it could handle the traffic

Your message is the first that I've heard of it. It seems to be in the
early stages, so I hesitate to judge it, but let's just say that I'm not
overwhelmingly impressed.

For one thing, the language seems designed to convey an impression that
the site is a much larger operation than it is; for example, it talks
about hundreds of people asking to be put into the directory, yet
apparently no names are listed yet. Rightly or wrongly, I always feel
that such things are an attempt to deliberately mislead. True, in this
case, any misleading is probably harmless, but I don't care for it all
the same.

For another, most of its content is simply links to other sites,
including a healthy number to the Techwr-l site.

Given time, the site might improve, but, right now, I don't find it
