7/18/2003 - Removed some dead links in the FAQ. Also, this page is now being updated every two weeks with new information

5/14/2002 - I've removed some duplicate entries, so the total number of entires went down by a few this update.

2/9/2002 - The base maps, before I add the circles, are being drawn by me now. This lets me add the two new maps for the East and West Coasts.

1/31/2002 - Welcome to the newly designed page. I've also added a FAQ that should help answer some of the more common questions I've seen.
