Natalie will be closing the website soon but is quite OK with someone who wants to take over the funding, maintenance, and other tasks.

If there is someone who wished to take this role on, could they e-mail me or pvt. msg. me.

I would be willing to help.

But I know very little of what is required.

I am also willing to assist, but have no web hosting knowledge.

If we can not keep this forum going, it looks like the old yahoo group is still open.
That group or a new "" (all my other groups have moved there) could
allow us to maintain our ProTrak user community together.

The group files section could provide access to some of the best ProTrak updates,
but only if that is consistent with Natalie's desires and copyright rules.

I plan to continue using ProTrak until I can no longer get a computer to run it.
I have been routinely amazed at the completeness and attention to detail Jim put into ProTrak.
I realize we are beneficiaries of Jim's generosity and love of our shared hobby.

Happy operating to all,

Mike Corley had discussed hosting the PT forum on the Texas Western website. I think it will be basically setup as it is now. You may want to wait until he checks in. Best, Andy

Howdy folks,

I have been in contact with Jim Switzer and Netflash. Ms Moir granted permission to move from Netlash (current host) to the Texas Western web host. You should see no change except a few modifications in the forum structure to better accommodate discussions about the different versions of ProTrak. IFf all goes well, the transfer will happen without the group noticing the change. I'll send a message when it is complete.

We are indebted to Ms Moir (Natalie) for financially supporting the website until now. Since the Texas Western has graciously agreed to host on their webhost, there should me nothing more than an annual $15 payment to maintain the domain name.

If anyone wants to help with the site, you need to learn how to work with Wordpress. Once you know the basics, I can tutor you in the everyday maintenance.

Persist, Mike Corley
