SignWriting List
April 13, 2010

And thanks to Adam too ;-))

And thanks to Kevin at Valencia Community College - our List software is starting to work better - Kevin is working on it. It turns out that our old List was located on a server that was starting to burn out, and there was no choice but to move all five Lists to another server...so we are fortunate that our 5 Lists were saved...

The spam has been stopped as far as I can see, but our Archives are not available yet...They are in the process of being moved, but slowly we will have all our features back again -

Enjoy your day everyone!

Val ;-)
