Hope you like the new site!





As you can see, we have brought back the "old" thewho.net look, at least in principle.

We still have a long way to go. We're bringing back the content as quickly as possible, and adding new content as we can find it.

We're also working on a new graphic design and hope update the look of the site in the near future.

Look around and don't hesitate to tell us what you think. We encourage both constructive criticism as well as encouragement.
