You may have noticed that that our website looks a little different today. We have been hard at work these past weeks rebuilding our webpage from scratch. Our previous website had been a last minute recovery before we lost our hosting. However there was a fair amount of lost information and a general lack of maintenance for several month preceding the recovery, which had made the recovered site difficult to manage. It became apparent that it would be simpler to rebuild the entire site than to maintain it. While, we were at it we decided also updated the look and implemented some more modern web practices and features. We hope you enjoy the redesign and that it serves you better.
