12 December 2014: New Homepage Monday - Expect some Down Time

Next Monday, December 15, 2014, for the first time since our website was launched in August 2001, we will have a few hours of scheduled down time, most likely in the late morning / early afternoon.  If you access the site during this time, you will receive an error message, which will disappear when the website is back up.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  There will also be a delay in any new postings received after 3 pm today (Eastern time) until our new structure is in place on Monday.

This weekend, our computer consultant will copy all 8200+ files (chapter and topic pages and other pages) and put them into a database.  On Monday, we will launch our new Home Page, which should have all the same links, but in a cleaner format.  Each of the other files (excluding images) will be stored and retrieved from the database, but for the near future, they should look and operate exactly the same.  Ultimately with this new structure, we will have more uniform pages, better formatting for mobile devices, and a robust topic search capability.

Please contact us with any questions.
