That's pretty good. How many visitors would Castanet see in any given month?

Was in Save On today and happened to notice the T-C has the cajones to raise their retail price to $2.75 - pretty ballsy IMO inasmuch as entities like McDonald's and BC Transit literally had to give the rag away for free and at that more often than not still had copies left over each day.

Wow! Castanet and the price paid for it seem like so pre millennium. Like internet bubble.
