I know there are a lot of you that can program and maintaining a
website is only
a step away. I will continue as long as I possibility can, but
getting a replacement would
be a great. Please don't wait too long. It would be a shame to
suddenly lose the Website.
This will be the only notice I will give. Don't let it
suddenly slip away.
