New Design Coming...

Web Site News
Beware! A new site design is
Subsequently, it has infiltrated the front welcome page and the news page.
So far, there are some problems with the new CSS-based design under Microsoft Internet Explorer. I've searched to see what could be causing the rendering problems, and the conclusion I reached is that MSIE is buggy. It stinks. Even with the very latest version installed.
My recommendation if the page looks odd (with huge gaps or spaces, or borders that don't quite line up) is that you switch browsers to something less buggy, more secure, and totally free: Mozilla Firefox
Not only is it a superior browser, it supports public, open standards far better. It also doesn't have the pop-up problem MS Explorer has had for years—and Microsoft claims will be fixed under Windows XP Service Pack 2. I'm sorry, Microsoft, but it's too little, too late. I'm fed up trying to tweak and change my web designs to work around your buggy web browser.
I sincerely feel bad for those of you who can't install Mozilla and are forced to use Explorer. I hope someday you will be able to join the modern world, that whoever manages and administers your computer will be able to modernize to Mozilla someday soon. Good luck!
