Slowly but surely the new website is coming on line. Please bear with us as we try to iron out some of the kinks in the system! Unbelievably, the server went down (right in the middle of the update process). After several frantic calls to friendly (but not especially helpful) technical representatives fro Bulgaria, we got the website back online… but not without some problems.
