Turtlesoft Blog

We just launched a new blog, where we can present breaking news and discussions. Users can sign up for a free account and then post comments (moderated). The blog replaces our former user bulletin board, which bit the dust, unfortunately, when our local ISP stopped providing hosting services. We will see how much trouble we have with spammers, and may need to adjust its details.

We've Moved!

As of May 1, 2012, we have moved our office to 119 S. Cayuga St. #304, Ithaca NY 14850.
