Crosswinds may be allowing 1 day of FTP uploads per month, not enough to retain current information on this site. Counters, meters, webrings and ringsurfs shifted to crosswinds.net as a potential site are being shifted back to eden.com. "precancel" or "precancels" searchwords in http://www.google.com/ search engine bring up this site in #1 position.

  • 10/13/2000 - Crosswinds.net starts posting popups because of losses. It is Friday the 13th, right?
  • 10/1/2000 - Zyworld.Com is changing to Zy.Com, but only works in Netscape. An Internet Explorer machine interprets it as a missing page.
  • 10/1/2000 - FTP to Crosswinds.Net has not worked for a week due to excessive FTP users. Plan "C" may be to load the site onto my wife's Texas.Net site.

  • 8/29/2000 - Zyworld appears to be down, so another method is needed for future and missing page header banners.

  • 8/25/2000 - 300th judged award received
  • 8/22/2000 - Migration started to Crosswinds.net. FTP to there is a lot slower than to the local Eden.com. The first site divergence is to post a giant 758x856 239K award on awards13. The eden.com site merely references and links to the other.
  • 8/18/2000 - Home subpages of site plans, old/new navigation legends, personality
  • 7/21/2000 - 200th judged award received
