so you ignored all warnings of "never touch a running system"?

Congratulations! - I think it has been worth it.
Gary Warner has done a great job in collecting the valuable content
and you and your team has done a great job with that new design. I can
imagine how much work has been invested for that!

Kind regards
Jutta Dennerlein

> at least most of them) which I made with the German pages.
> She, with the

> maintenance of the German language pages and the creation
> of new ones.
> The site displays the new logo designed by Les Ollenburg.  Les is a
> professional artist who did a great job in creating a
> simple logo with
> significant meaning.  Thank you Les.
> We also had the help of Klaus Leiss, Ray Bloch, and Paul
> Work with changes
> and additions to the German language pages.  Still others
> helped with
> evaluating and proofing the site, too many to mention.  We

> Matt Warner provided invaluable assistance in the technical
> aspects of the
> change and continues to ensure that ALL our computer
> systems remain in good
> working order.
> Yours truly transferred the material from the original site
> to the new and
> reformatted them as required to suit.
> Most of the material on the new site is identical to the
> old.  We have

> indexing system but you
> should have no trouble finding what you are looking for.
> With any change of this type involving literally hundreds
> of pages of
> material, there are bound to be some glitches.  Please let
> me know if you
> find any broken links, spelling or grammar errors, etc. which may
> occur.  We would like to correct them to ensure that we
> have a professional
> looking site.  In particular we are presently experiencing
> some problems
> with the appearance of the search report pages.  Please
> bear with us as we
> work through them.
> An important note for Explorer users:  please set your
> "text view" feature
> to "medium" for best viewing.
> As with any change in control over material such as this,
> you will continue
> to see changes to the site over the next few months.  I
> want to assure you
> that in all I do, it is my intention to maintain the ease
> of use and the
> integrity of the site and to build on the legacy that Gary
