Changes Underway

Posted by Mr. H on Jan 05, 2003 - 09:42 AM  •  Filed under: news
I will be making some "dramatic" changes to the website over the next week or two. I'll try to keep it up and running in the process, but things may look a little weird or some things may not work. The first thing to go was all the audio files. They are gone because we don't have enough disk space on our server. I'm looking into options for that, but there are some other new things I have in mind. - Mr. H
