Best way to navigate the the site is to enter at :
http://www.myne.com/mynecorp/tmoainc/mudzilla/

This brings up the web dir and lets you navigate since many of the links
are unfinished.

(BTW: if you leave spaces around a url it becomes clickable for those of us
unfortunates with Win/NT and MAC mail clients. Of the four urls below, the
second one is clickable.)

I'm uncertain what is new here except the Delphi design tools. Looks like
there is a lot of work to go but at least they are operational (unlike my
system).
