We are trying to automate the website and have month by month doing various small preparatory work to get the system ready, While the website has been late this month it is due to this effort which takes away time from web site updating. We should begin to see faster web updates in future as the system is ready for major automation.

All is going well – thanks Mental Disorder for standing up and volunteering.
