We currently point to the old website (simply disabled the portions that
used the database causing errors earlier in the year). This way we can use
the information from the older website until it can be ported over to the
new website (which is actually very easy but someone needs to do it! hint
hint for any potential volunteers). Those of us volunteering for the
website over the Summer work pushed to get the functioning website up and
running on Wordpress but in cases such as mine I've refocused most of my
time to Fox-1 engineering (free time that is) to keep that moving along.
There's still valuable kep information regarding what they are and how they
are derived. I agree we need to figure out the actual element issue and
it's been a recent topic for the website volunteers since the AO-73 launch.
Suggestions are always welcome and help bring attention to something us
volunteers may be missing.
