Ok, here's the scoop on the Webring. Yahoo came in and took over the original
webring host and has TOTALLY screwed up the system. It is SO bad that not even
our computer guy can figure out how to manage the thing (I thought I was doing
something wrong, so had him take a look).

The solution is in the works: our physics sites get enough click through traffic
from the webring that our chairman has deemed it a good idea to create our own,
in-house, webring system. Yip, our computer guy, is programming as we speak. It
should be ready in under a month.

With this new system, we will have absolutely NO advertising and it will be
housed here at WFU. This way, I have total control over the system. But, for
now, that means we have to be patient and deal with the lack of support from
Yahoo. I will be working hard to get everyone back up and running...and will be
expanding the ring as I have several sites waiting for inclusion. Thanks for
everyone's patience!
