Why Subscribe?

I have introduced a voluntary subscription to try and defray the costs of maintaining the site which are considerable. There are approximately 1000 pages on Hoslink including the "ABC of Safe practices" which I host for free as a service to the Laboratory Community at large.

I retired on the 1st November 2002 (getting old!)so I will not have the income to support the site that I once had. A ten dollar subscription is not a lot of money and it will help to maintain this valuable resource. Note: It is 10 years since I wrote this - (NOVEMBER 2012) I am now 70. A recent stroke is a warning that I can't last forever so I am doing a major update now. The revised web site needs much more link checking which I am just starting on. Anyone wanting to volunteer to assist with this monumental task will be more than welcome!

Hoslink is currently getting about 35,000 hits a month and this is growing all the time. This is great for a non-commercial site. All in all there must be 40-50 thousand links so maintenance is very time consuming.

If you are a commercial site and would like to subscribe we will provide a link such as is found on the IT pages (example).
