Totally agree, wheel. I go a step further if necessary and have more than once got on a plane to go visit someone overseas looking for a link. It has always worked. Hey, and with airfares so cheap these days, it has given me an incredibly high ROI! The added information that comes with these contacts are also amazing. I'm just heading off next week by volcano-ash-dodging train to a neighbouring country to secure a killer link (touch wood), but I'm sure I'll be gaining a lot more than that, value-wise, in new knowledge.
