Site Revamp Story            Newest Issue - #7              Upcoming Issue Info

Beta 3 Crossover!!            Ordering Information       Link for existing site



Here’s the story:

Our former webmaster did an AWESOME job creating both our HTML and FLASH versions of the site! Unfortunately, he became mysteriously unreachable and site updates couldn’t get posted.  His personal sites shut down and the Flash version of our site went with them, since he was nice enough to host it for us!!  To make matters worse, since he was the one who originally set up this site at Tripod, I didn’t have any of the passwords or any login information that I needed to revamp the site myself!!


Well, after going round-and-round with Tripod, I was able to prove that it was my site, they granted me access, and now we can get to the massive (and much needed) REVAMP!  J 

More info coming soon.
