Notice No Updates There have been no site updates for over a week because a power supply failure in our production computer took out the main board, the CPU and the boot sector of the boot drive.
While we have multiple on and off site backups, replacing the hardware took time and we took the additional step of upgrading to Windows 10 meaning a full reinstall. The result: 100 hours of work, and some things are still not ready.
We will start adding new items soon. Please let us know if there are any issues in using the site.
We are about a month behind in correspondence, so please understand this if you are awaiting a reply or answer about this site.
