WEBSITE NEWS: The Website Menu is having issues and we are working on a fix for the menu. Also, our Web Hosting company was forced to remove all of their provided web applications that we (and all the thousands of their customers) that we used for years such as "Buddy List" Spectre Forum, "In Search Of" and others we used due to security. We are in search now of other applications to replace the ones we had. Sorry for any inconvenience but rather than chance identity theft, this was a needed response. You will find the links on our menu are not operational until we find safe, suitable substitutes.
