Arcmapbook Project has a new home

I’ve moved the Arcmapbook project from Sourceforge to arcmapbook.googlepages.com

I’m tired of meeting all the little challenges which come with being a site administrator, in aggregate, they aren’t so little. In features available to project adminsitrators, Sourceforge still has more than Google Code, but the attention to usability and a clean interface has won me over. The idea behind the move is that with the little time I have to spend on this project, slices between “my real job” tasks and at home after the kids are asleep will be spent actually on mapbook rather than on it’s administration. Passage of Time, as always, will be the best judge of continue.
