That's an interesting point. Looking into the logs... quite exactly
half of the visitors are .net and .com addresses, and a quarter have
European domains! The remaining quarter includes European visitors as
well. This way, it seems that the visitor -> customer ratio of the
website is actually much higher in the USA!

Googling for 'flash sounds' delivers #1 of several Millions in
google.com, google.de, google.fr, as well as in google.ch (and in
other major search engines).

Cheers Mike
