Can't imagine what would motivate someone to commit a massacre like this. To think all those people thought they were going to work on a normal Monday morning. Tragic. :(

Re: Welcome Back

V, I forgot to ask, will you be able to restore much of the info that previously was on the site in the Horse Followings, Breeding & Sales, and so on? Or are you having to start over from scratch?
