New & updated
Bugs fixedLogin problem with IE v. 9, now resolved.
NEW:Too many new additions and improvements continuously to keep track of here. Major improvements and/ or new functionality announced on the welcome page
Over half a year of work from quite some volunteers, with heavy testing (of course) resulted in what you see today. Also many new techniques have been implemented, although most users won't even notice.
We've been shopping around quite some time for the sub-applications we were looking for, but none met our requirements (that's the disadvantage of over 11 years webbuilding experience). So we're still busy coding, e.g. keep an eye out, many new additions are currently being built.
We've moved to new, massive & professional hardware (aug. 05), so we can keep up with the always growing data stream requests (which is already high, we have the biggest data load with one of the countries bigger ISP's, and then we also bump into an average increase of over 50% a year).
So, now we can cope with all that, sit back, get your suggestions, and see what we (or you) will come up with!
