      Hi Dean –

      Sorry about that! We’ve made the fixes, but there were links to Wonderful Machine’s blog that we could not track down. So, we’re going to take those out entirely. Appreciate you pointing it out and apologies again that you didn’t have a great experience finding what you were looking for.
