    Your Animated Knots site is simply fantastic! I've been sailing, climbing, and participating in search and rescue for years so know the knots well...but even I learned a few new ones from you!

    No need to reply. Our local paper (Valley News, West Lebanon, NH) had an article which listed as the best site of the week. I might have said best site of the year. Crisply designed, concise explanations, and of course splendid animation makes this site superb. Ironically I had just started my daily rant about the "death of practical knowledge" thanks to TV, x-boxes, i-pods and other virtual pursuits, when along comes and makes me realize that the internet CAN be used to restore what our grand parents knew and did every day of their practical lives.

    Just wanted to say thanks for your great rope web site. I have been struggling with info on several climbing knots and your web site ALWAYS has the right answers and great photos to guide me the first time through. Probably the best all around knot making web site on the Internet. Good work sir!

    This is a great site. It is the clearest presentation of how to ties the knots that I've seen and I've recommended to my knotically challenged sailing buddies.

    I came across your knot page. As a longtime (50 years +/-) student of the subject I found it brilliant. I do not understand how all this is done on a computer but it is really wonderful. I hope lots of kids come across the instructions.
