The Forum is back 3/29/02
The forum is back online. After our host decided to move the entire forum went down

for forum related problems and forums help.
||We opened a new section on the FxZone which
will serve as a file exchange resource for interfaces.
If you've got a lot of those unpublished works or materials

patterns, textures and even
full PSD files of interfaces that
can help you create your own interfaces.
