The website is undergoing radical changes to make it faster and more user interactive. There has been a lot going on behind the scenes to enable these changes to take place.

There is still a way to go but things are progressing nicely. This page will act as a sort of progress log. If you would like to make any suggestions, comments or ideas (to do with the website only), please e-mail them to [email protected]

It has been a long time since a progress update has been added. Apolologies for that.
Because the website is public open acces, a lot of behind the scenes programming has to be done to deal with error handling, verification and also future website developement which is not immediately apparent.
Public access is now available and running.
