7:20 AM John- Moved over Old News. Added another IE 5 Screen Shot. We're going to change(most likely) to Code Name: Windows X and get a domain name..... I'm gonna get a domain name for X-mas, but we still need to raise money for the hosting charges, so please(I BEG YOU) visit our sponsors and click on the one of the ads at least once a week(please). Added a new link, FREExtreme. No news, so bye.
