We Dodged The Flak.
Recently, our web hosting company informed us that they would
no longer support the web design tool we've been using since 1998.
They decommissioned our old (but compatible) server on June 24, 2015,
which threatened to shut us down (or at least render this web site
useless and really, really ugly.)
With the help of some great people and many long nights, we got the
site reformatted so that it retains its original look for the time
being. And, most importantly, we can still update it as usual.
I am grateful to all of you who made suggestions and expressed
support for this site. We'll continue, in our small way, to
contribute to the warbird community by providing straightforward,
reliable information without annoying pop-up ads or other features
that make you crazy when visiting websites these days.
It's good to be back, and good to be alive! Enjoy the site!
