Week of June 12:
The West History Site has been given a new home by Gregory Blount (his SCA name). The new server we are on will allow the site to grow, freeing up space used by this site for use of Kingdom Officers, Principalities, etc. Best of all, Gregory is allowing us to use his server (and bandwidth) for free. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Gregory for his willingness to do this. Many many thanks ... With any luck, soon the web minister will have a fast connection, and we can get back to "business as usual" here.
