  1. Your Winchell Chung link is malformed... it requires its terminal 'l'.

    While I'm here, keep up the outstanding posting. Both the content and the frequency are admirable.

  2. The link has been fixed & is all set! I'm working on some other stuff for this ship & its attendant relatives ie the DY100s series..
    Thanks for the kind words sirs!
