Okay guys, this is hot off the press. Just got off the phone with Dave (TRAP55) concerning the site. He spent a lot of time on the phone talking with Lonnie (redneck). MauserCentral is now a lapsed domain name and was sniped by some a-holes out of Washington state. If we want to go one route, we can pay their ransom to get it back. The other, more viable option is to do a new website which is the way I think we need to go.
At any rate, Lonnie is going to get the thing started sometime tonight and call Dave with the info. Dave has friends that are techie types who will help us get it up and running. Not sure right now what the new site will be called but it will be as close to Mauser Central as we can get it. Neither Dave or I have any idea of how much it will cost to do this but we have it covered, at least initially.
This is not going to happen overnight but hopefully things will smooth out and we can be up and running in two weeks or less. At least that is the opinion that Dave and Lonnie have. If you have email, snail mail, or telephone contacts of other board members, please spread the word that all is not lost, that we are working on things, and hopefully we can pull this off in short order.
Remember, patience is a virtue. LOL
