September, 2003 I've done several updates a month over the last year, more frequently in the last

Color-coded areas on the navigation bar based on difficulty.
Colors refer to the minimum level for which the area is
safe -- for example, Digga's is a newbie area yet has some midbie and
up monsies. Since it has some good stuff for newbies, though, it is coded
as a green area. If I goofed on any of these, point it out to me
so that I can correct the error.

photo I had up there before was from 7 years ago (the wedding photo).

the new maps. Thank him and shower him with mowgles if you agree.
