Nano-Link will be upgrading our website this summer!  Over the weekend of June 17-18 our site will be moved to a different home, with a new look and feel and lots of great new features.  

Our web address is going to stay the same, so you still will find us at http://www.nano-link.org.  But behind the scenes we are gong to be moving to different web and email servers.  As we are starting to make the changes needed for this, you may find that certain things on our current site aren't quite the way they used to be leading up to the move. 

If you have any issues, please contact us immediately at help@nano-link.org so we can help you get the answers and resources you need!
