Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

Just linking a couple of other answers in: Any good alternatives to bricklink and How to minimize the number of merchants for a given set of bricks which have some useful tips on working with Bricklink.

You seem to have something odd going on in the mark-up of your website resulting in a rather massive table of white text on a white background, which is considered a little suspicious by some, as if you're hiding something?

In terms of the knock-off minifigs, these are all over the place, including Amazon through sellers.

The research from the OU indicated that the 1x1 bricks would be stronger than a 2x2, which in turn were stronger than a 2x4, presumably due to the greater amount of "wall" to surface area.

But building a pyramid would also result in more than the supported 4000N of force on the bottom - so you wouldn't really manage to reach the upper limit as the bricks would crush at a lower height...
