	Yes, we are ironing out the difficulties. As far as I can tell, other
pressures and miscommunications caused some delays, but we are back in
business with sunsite.

	I am currently getting things working with Esben (a.k.a bart) and we will
soon be operational. I somehow still cannot log on directly, but this is a
minor issue as I used to be able to log on before. Database tables can be
designed in php3, and phpMyAdmin, now and will work.

	If this is how people want to proceed, that's fine. We can tell
gamedev.com thanks, but no thanks...and I won't have to look elsewhere on
the net for a host site. Is this the final word? Do we stick with what
we've got?

	Just in case anyone is interested, here's the last word from Dave Astle,
from gamedev.com:
