Subject Re: Changes needed to the website upon PRC communication
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2007 21:45:13 GMT
okey dokey, here is what I've done:

- Added link to "ASF Sponsorship"
- Added link to "ASF Thanks!"
- Renamed "Powered By" with "Service and Support", we may have to remove this one later anyway.
- Removed "Graphics by Epic"
- Left "Powered by Google Search" untouched.
