This should be fixed. I don't think anyone maintains the content on that site. I just run the server. It's an old install at this point. Needs serious updates....

Well, there will likely come a day when the code there won't be compatible with the newest version of the server software. I'm not sure what should be done if that happens.

I understand that. I'm sure that the amount of traffic it gets these days probably does not warrant a lot of work on behalf of the owner. If i was capable of doing such work, I would offer to help with it, It is just not one of my strengths

    let's see if everyone finds it... the nice thing about the shoutbox was I could check on it even while logged out, but the existence of this one is hidden when you're not logged in

    We can fix that.
