I may take that advice. At the moment the project is going nowhere while I faff about trying to decide what to do. I guess I should just set one up as a free directory to start with, then start charging later for premium poisition listins. Maybe will make it easier.
Start free, get the design sorted, build up some listings, then start promoting it locally. Yeah.
ANOTHER QUESTION: Which one, or another, is most likely to still be supported in a decade? I am looking long term here, so want to ensure that I chose a company that is likely to be around for a while!
