The funny/worrying thing is that this is only reported today.

I don't know-- I had trouble accessing all of Kitmaker on Sunday (24th) and Monday (25th) for short periods of time in the AM. I thought it was my internet provider at first, but no, it was just the Kitmaker website.

I have sent an email to site publisher, not sure about his availability as he may be in the middle of his move.

This wouldn't have anything to do with Mr. Starkweather moving to the east coast?

Two plus days now.
