Work is continuing all be it slowly on recoding all of the pages of the site to bring them up to HTML 5.0 coding standards so that browser compatibility can be maintained. During this time though please bear with the webmaster if your inbound emails seem not to be acknowledged or replied to in an expeditious manner. No disourtesy is intended, I am simply buried under almost 700 pages of recoding while at the same time trying to juggle all my other commitments too. Please keep sending in your contributions and registrations and I will try to get finished on the recoding ASAP so that we can bring out the new items!
