To tell you the truth, I’m not really sure what you mean by “official
endorsement”. Is it enough for me to just say “Yup, I think the site’s
great” (I do and have visited many times!) or were you looking for Amstrad
to make some kind of press statement or something? The fact is that as long
as it doesn’t cost Amstrad anything we’d be happy to do pretty much anything
but it’s unlikely that our marketing people would be interested in doing
anything that involved either direct cost or the time of any of our
employees (which is obviously a cost in itself).
