Sunday, December 26th, 2004

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2004
- Replaced the Search script with a newer, more secure script. Still cannot search the forum archive outside of the forum, I will work on that.

- Fixed a Time Zone error with Tehren Iran. Previously it was GMT+3 when it should have been GMT+3.3

Wednesday, December 15th, 2004

Wednesday, December 1st, 2004

Tuesday, June 15th, 2004

Tuesday, April 6th, 2004

Thursday, April 1st, 2004

Wednesday, March 31st, 2004

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2004
