I keep trying to go to support.adastragames.com, and get redirected to a PC repair/support site.

Oops. Thanks, Ken.

BTW, why is it there is no link to that site from the main web-site? Or did I overlook that too last night?

Spammers.

That database allows people to search for players. While there's no way I know of to get it to search without a registered product ID code, I can't really be certain that it can't be done, and I don't want someone harvesting my customer's email addresses.

That URL is something that's almost impossible to find unless you own one of the titles in question. I prefer keeping it that way.

I figured that or something similar was the reason. :)
