    	The Intelligence Network site (www.intellnet.org) is finally
    back up and running.  We hope to have updated news posted to the site
    tomorrow (Wednesday) and to resume our regular operations.  We are
    currently in the process of developing a ton of new features for the
    site including a face lift and an overhaul of our backend
    infrastructure as well as a lot of ideas to make the dissemination of
    the information each person wants much easier. We are trying to
    harness the archive power that the site has (currently we have 14,372
    news articles archived on the server) and allow users to access the
    materials they want as quickly and easily as possible.
    	As many of you know, we had a problem with hosting a little
    while ago.  To my utter surprise, we were flooded with offers of help,
    ideas, suggestions and general inquiries.  I guess it took a downturn
    for me to realize there are loyal fans out there :-).  Anyway, the
    creators of Aimster, the popular filesharing client now known as
    Madster www.madster.com (the beautiful Aimee and her father), came
    through with an offer to host my server for free of charge, so we went
    through the long process of getting our server out of its old colo and
    into its new one.  Words cannot express out gratitude towards them.
    	During this process of finding a new host and moving the
    server to their facility, we did not get much in the way of donations,
    however there were a good many people who expressed the willingness to
    donate.  I have never looked for handouts, but it would greatly
    benefit my site (and the intelligence community indirectly) if we were
    able to recieve some money. Every bit helps.  I will be putting up a
    link to paypal for the donation with a breakdown of exactly what we
    want to purchase as well as a link to buy IntellNet t-shirts that I
    have.  If there is anyone who cannot wait to donate, feel free to
    email me bisoldiat_private <grin>.
    	All in all, having to manage the acquisition of a new colo
    facility and managing the move of our server was a worthwhile
    experience.  It was definitely not something that your average college
    student goes through on a daily basis, but I am glad to be of service
    to the intell community and I am glad to be of help and of use to
    everyone out there who makes use of the site.
    	Thank you.
