June 10, 2002

Added the horrifying "your project for Winter Camp x should be at least y% complete" to the news. Added pictures to some of the bios (more later). Noticed that a disturbing number of campers had never gone to and resolved to someday punish them for their crime. If you haven't, it would be cool if you did the bio thing. I even promise to publish it within a week of your posting, probably with your picture...

Some general cleaning and bug-fixing, the survey now shows in order by most recently answered, the category quizzes don't ask for your name (since they didn't use it). Release the Postmark Project, which you can reach from Just for Fun on the main menu or by going to

January 1, 2002
Added more info to the Winter Camp XXVI planning pages, corrected news so it would show the correct Winter Camp (at least until 40) in the countdown, changed the list to the actual list at yahoogroups (also on the news), and changed the revisions so they can be updated and sent to subscribers to
