I haven't posted to PlainTalk for a few days because I've been frantically tying up the loose ends of our new Web site. We sure had hoped to have it finished by May 28, 2008 - however, if you have any experience with Web site design, you know things rarely go according to plan. So, we're asking for your patience for just a few more days, with a new launch date of Monday, June 2, 2008. It's disappointing to me, as I'm just about to celebrate my one year anniversary at DPPL and was looking forward to the new Web site as the culmination of 365 days' worth of work. However, chin up -- now it will simply be the culmination of 369 days of work! Don't worry, the old site won't disappear until the new one is ready, so our "virtual branch" will always be here for you. Wait for it...it'll be worth it!
