Well, I certainly always aim to make an impression, and it seems that I
have succeeded in doing so, in your case. Thank you for sharing your
opinion of my website with me, and so eloquently at that! My heart grows
fonder knowing that my minor contribution to the web reverberates so
strongly with at least some people who drop by to visit.

Take care, thank you again, and I look forward to continuing to summon up
the profound thoughts and emotions of obvious intellects such as yourself.

Sincerely,

-dan

Hi. You sent me a cogent critique of my website about a month ago (quoted
below for your reference). I replied to you at the time, but I'm afraid I
never heard back. I hope this was due to network problems and not because
you didn't think me worthy of hearing more from you.

I've since updated a couple of the pages on the site, and I was wondering
if I could entice you to provide further thoughts and commentary on the
layout, content, and so on. Similar to what they say of cockroaches, for
every person that takes some of their valuable time to send you a
thoughtful email, there are thousands more lurking under your sink, so,
having found you--a clear and vocal source for my further inspiration--I
now hope to derive as much benefit from our interaction as possible,
however brief it may be.

I look forward to your correspondence.

Take care,

-dan

Hello again. Over the weekend, I completed an update of my Barcode Server.
I was hoping you could tell me what you think of it. The Barcode Server may
be found here: <http://www.milk.com/barcode/>.

The last time you commented on my site, it whipped me into a frenzy of
activity, making many improvements to the pages, and for that I am much
appreciative. Sometimes having someone light a fire under your butt is just
what you need. Unfortunately, however, you have thus far only chosen to
write to me that one time. I seek guidance from the public and am somewhat
distraught as to your silence.

Humbly yours,
