Is this it for the site? Nothing is getting updated/added to te the site.

I would also suggest that the software for the site could easily be upgraded to another, newer software to help out.

It's just been a quiet few weeks, and as you know, we're 100% volunteer run, with lives outside of Flhurricane

Lots of Flhurricane and CFHC updates can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. In fact, sometimes those two social media sites help get critical info out even faster, but the site is still "core."

We know we're stuck in 2001 style/software wise, but priorities don't allow it to be updated much. We reserve the times to update when it's needed currently. Some of the old timers are no longer with us now, so it's a bit different than it once was (Site is approaching 30 years old now). It's still useful as it is, so we're keeping it going. For one I know it needs to move off the old servers its running on now to probably a VM setup. There's still a lot of custom software running in the background to maintain everything. We've also got partnerships with also for some of the data, and their video backend.
