I got an email yesterday afternoon from ning. They've realized the error of their ways, (i.e. they're now under new management), and they are bringing back the ning mini. As soon as Dirtrider returns we'll get the site all pretty again.
I will also be signing the site over to Dirtrider. He's been running the place for the past few years, while I've been having some serious issues with my vision. It started with a bad fall I had in the summer of 2014, which caused a concussion that has effected my eyesight. The problem was then compounded when I was diagnosed with a condition called, Fuchs Dystrophy, which is a deterioration of the cornea. No cure. It's actually a genetic disease, which is odd as I have no known family history, but then again, we live in a world where strange things happen. That said, I think the time has come to let someone else take the reins.
I'll still be a member, and I'll still pop in from time to time, however, Milt will be the new sheriff in town.
So let's enjoy the next chapter of SOTOW.
