    19 December 2005 - JEO no longer updating VirusExecutor
   Today I got news from Jan Andersen of Virus Help Denmark, that the
   Amiga support from Jan Erik Olausen is no longer available. Jan Erik
   no longer has his Amiga, so there will be no more updates to his
   VirusExecutor program. Sad news ideed. Best wishes and thanks goes
   out to Jan Erik for the years he put into VirusExecutor and the
   Xvs.library and other things as well.

    15 December 2005 - Hosting service now with SelectedHosting
   We have lost our service with Shadow-Realm, due to the server slated
   to be going offline. I have been trying to get the files and links
   changed over to SelectedHosting, and it is quite a feat, with all the
   services that we make use of, like the counters, mail forms, and search
   code for the search boxes. Hopefully this will not be too annoying for
   our Virus Help Team Canada visitors. Hamlet at Shadow Realm Creations
   is hereby publically thanked for the past 5+ years of hosting the site,
   for myself and Alex van Niel, the Amiga programmer of VirusChecker-II.

   Today my son picked up his new side-kick King Pin who is being re-named
   to Onyx. He is an 8-month old Great Dane. Plenty of activity in store, I
   suspect :)  My son will be working on introducing Onyx to the english
