    I required some information and was searching on Ask Jeeves for it. I visited each of the top 3 pages that came up but didn’t get any relevant result… I then luckily found your diamond forum in the dirt and thought to check it out. This is what I wanted!

    Cheers peeps at http://www.technews24h.com and keep the fantastic effort up.
