The server is undergoing a kernel upgrade on Saturday, 3 March 2014 between the hours of 8pm to 4am MST.

The Crispin Colloquy may be down for a half hour or so sometime during this time frame...no way to pin it down.

Welcome Nathan! We have three or four other members from Down Under.

I have corresponded with James and follow his blog religiously but I believe I'm closer to you than to Britain.

I hope you will be active and I trust you will find many friends here.
