side of the screen. This section acknowledges people who have contributed to the maintenance
and operation costs of the site. I apologize for falling behind in keeping this list updated

February 5, 2013 In case you happen to have noticed the annoyingly frequent site
outages over the past 5 months, I'm happy to announce that the problem, apparently
caused by a bug in the version 4.5 update of the .NET operating system library, may now be fixed.
Since applying a just-released patch,
the site has been running for several days with no sign of the (previously chronic) freezing-up.
Although I was pretty sure that the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.5 had caused the problem, I couldn't easily
revert the site to the previous version because this website shares lots of code with my
ongoing analytical grammar project, a project
which had quickly asserted dependencies on new features only available in .NET 4.5. Anyway,
all's well that ends well and I thank you for your patience over the past months!
January 28, 2013 Please enjoy the new intermediate-level reading exercise, MOE eliminates crew-cut requirements.

everyone who visits the site really appreciates the huge effort that this requires.
