Good Morning.

Our network provider says the site should be working properly. I'm not convinced yet and need your help. If you can see this blog post, or the comment I posted, please respond. You can either "like" or leave a comment. This will help me judge how well the site is working.

One thing I need everyone to do: clear your cache and browsing history. This will clean up any old links. Once you do this, we will have a better idea of how well the site is operating.
