    Is this our new JWD Home?

    Is Simon still our fearless leader?

    Why the effort of a new site when there was one in place?

    I don't take change well

    Jessep: You want answers?
    Kaffee: I want the truth!
    Jessep: You can't handle the truth!

    LOL

    Ok ... after ~9 years and lots of harrassment I decided I was going to quit running the forum and close it down. Enough people then reminded me that it was useful and helped enough people that it should be kept going. I changed my plan so that the site could keep running but ultimately I still want to be able to hand it over or make it self-running. The JWD software as it is wasn't in a suitable state for this so I've re-developed it and am running JWN in parallel until it is complete enough to use as the main site (when JWD will then be shut down).

    Hope that explains things!

    Thank you Simon for all that you do. Now, as for the movie short....This has to be the best lines of ANY movie I have ever seen. It rates first in the top 3 of my cult movie collection.

    How about

    Judge, banging the gavel: "You're out of order!"

    Al Pacino to judge: "No, you're out of order!"

    I understand what Simon is doing and why. Now he is going the extra mile for all those who were devastated by the prospect of JWD shutting down. I don't think I would have had the patience to put up with all the crap. Hats off.

    Simon, I don't know your story and don't know if you and your wife consider yourselves Christians now or not, but what you've done and are doing shows real empathy, compassion, and caring for your fellow man. Many more will be helped exiting the WTS because of you. If you are Christians, I'm sure you will be rewarded. If you're not, then you've got lots of warm fuzzies in the here and now!

    Thanks, I wouldn't class myself as 'christian' ... I'm more of a Teapot Agnostic:
