American Craft Guide Community

So, I love online interaction and the communities found around the net. I am part of several forums including Craftster and Craftserver.

Just recently I stumbled upon a new community...ACG. Since then I have been addicted. All of the people there are really kind. There are lots of pictures and even more valuable information. Right now there are around 300 members so it still has a way to go before catching up with craftster or some of the other large forums but I personally feel that it will go far.

Membership is totally free so go and check it out.

A Lot Has Been Going On

So, this is my third post today. Whew! Anyhow, this is the most important of the three.

I have been working on a few updates. These are not security related. They are simply cosmetic and help simplify a few things when using the page manager, newsletter manager, and send email option. None of your current settings will be changed.

This update is not advised for Dial Up users. While it will work with dialup it will just be slower.

Just let me know if you would like the update made to your software. I will begin making the updates this Saturday.


PS. An update manager will be installed on Saturday, November 8, 2008 for ALL current customers. This will allow our customers to make the updates to their own system. Please email us with any questions.
