The ASC - 'The Earth Quake Chasers' [link]

I came the across a quiet interesting link - - a group calling themselves The ASC, short for the Amatuer Sesmic Centre. A sort of hobbiest group with a serious interest in Earthquakes.
They describe themselves as
an independent website based in Pune (Maharashtra, India) that was founded in June 2000 by Stacey S. Martin. The website was created with the aim of providing users in India and overseas information on earthquakes in the sub-continent.

Not suprisingly at all that it's based out of Pune.
