Where’s the ASIM website?

Doug van Belle sent us a great article on ‘Every Story Problem Ever’, I put it on the website and 40,000+ people stampeded in for a look. That used up our monthly bandwidth allowance in about three days flat.

We’re just sorting out the bandwith issue with our ISP now.

In the meantime, please spread the word.

Andromeda Spaceways Berths Again!
