    Very difficult for a magazine to adapt to the Internet. CleanFax memories...not really...and maybe that was part of the problem.

    Not surprised with the print version of course but a little with the website. They must have a boatload of email subscribers.
    Guess they should have hired fred to do their seo ~

    Now what?

    My opinion would be, I think most cleaners take the cell phones with them when they use the toilet, not a magazine.

    Jeff bought them an extra few years I'm sure.

    Cleanfax is where the carpet cleaner fraternity first met the Internet. Kudos to John Downey for being such a cantankerous visionary!

    OK, guys, two things:

    1. I can run a Zipper. Give me a break!
    2. I bought a bunch of Cleanfax personalized pens. Darn it!

    Seriously, yes the competition in print is tough. It's all about Internet now. I blame Mikey.

    Jeff is such a talent at so many things I'm sure he will land on his feet. The guy is so qualified I can think of several jobs he could walk right into. "Hello welcome to Walmart!" " Would you like fries with that?".

    The dude is amazing! :winky:

    Just kidding! Seriously he is a great instructor, facilitator, speaker he should be fine. If not see above! :biggrin:

    Don't lie. Someone might ask you to prove it! :winky:

    I sent you a PM with my address for the pens. :biggrin:
