New hours starting April 17

The Chemical Injury Information Network will be changing its office hours starting April 17th. We will be open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9am until 5pm, Mountain Time.

This is mostly for our benefit, but it will also help correct a complaint sometimes heard that we close too early, especially for people on the west coast.

This change will not affect anything else about CIIN's operations.

Things lost from the Internet can be found



Can’t find something on the internet that used to be there? The “Wayback Machine” should probably be your next step. 

Officially known as the Internet Archive, it is an organization that for over 20 years has been making a very credible attempt to keep copies of everything on the ‘Net. And not just a one-shot picture. It takes copies year after year so you can see how a web site evolves.

If you are unfamiliar with the Wayback Machine, here is a link to a very brief and interesting introduction to it:

By the way, AskBobRankin.com (which you can see is part of the above link) is a tech site I’ve followed for many years. I have found it to be reliable, interesting, and non-geek friendly. You might give it a look too.

p.s. For people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, please remember that avoidance is the only sure way to make things better. Easier said than done, yes, but the effort must be made to start regaining some quality of life.

p.p.s. Our web site for the Chemical Injury Information Network is at ciin.org  Give it a look if you are not familiar with us. 

I hope you have a good day, week, month, year, lifetime.
