More functionality will be added as it becomes available. A webmail function is currently being worked on. Hopefully it will be available soon.
Please note that many of the above functions are available to OLUG registered members only. New functionally will also allow the Webmaster to remove users who are not active anymore (after they are warned of such). This will help in preventing a bloated membership and outsiders from lurking.
Please note that this new site may be difficult for the TI-99/4A or Geneve 9640 computer to negoiate properly. Ironic, isn't it? But that is the way of the Internet today. While the site may appear "busy" at first, it will become very easy to negotiate after a few times online.
If you haven't already done so, join us on the TI99ers On-Line User Group.

Please note that many functions are available to OLUG registered members only. The Webmaster, via a "Dead Users" module, has the ability to remove users who are not active anymore (after they are warned of such). This will help in preventing a bloated membership and help keep outsiders from lurking.
