The old version of FLEX is now offline until we have figured out what to do with the content. I know that some of you have relied on this resource, and it's painful to just switch it off after so many years, but let's face it - the content is horribly outdated, with just way too many errors and omissions. This site has been semi-abandoned for the past few years, and it shows. So we're taking a break, will think about what's next and then hopefully return with a much better version. If you have any suggestions, please let me know, preferably via the Facebook page linked above.
