Mad About Mahound taken down overnight (20 November 2012) :(
Bruce has confirmed that MAM has been taken down ... as that was like a second home, and gave me the extra confidence to start this blog, along with Bruce's help / hints in setting up Disqus and general configuration, I thank him for his help & friendship over the last couple of years, and wish him well in either having MAM reinstated, or starting another blog.

Mad About Mahound - gone (for now?), but definitely not forgotten!
