Testers needed for competition web site

The software that we use for registration of entries in both Microfest and HHHC is developed by a guy named Young Martin, who is a great friend of the club. He has made some changes to his site, and is asking for help in testing the software. Any help that our members can provide will be very much appreciated, and will help ensure a better site for us to use for the upcoming HHHC competition.

If there are any questions, comments, or issues, please follow the Contact link on the web site in order to send me an email. I’ll be watching the site logs as well, but the more information and the more activity, the easier it would be to track down a bug.

If anyone wants admin access to help test behind-the-scenes, I would be glad to set that up for you. Just send an email.

Thanks for everyone that makes an entry in this Beta contest.
