  1. Is this around anymore? I tried to go to the site and was redirected to an unrelated blog that didn't say anything about it.

  2. Ooops! I'm surprised no one has called me on this before. I have the wrong URL in my blog post. It should be http://www.GenMates.net, not ".com"

    Thanks for making me aware of this!
