...Well, crap. Trying to edit the article wound up getting the whole thing blanked.

Luckily I had the article open in another tab, so until this bug's fixed you can read it here.

Thanks for pointing this out! I've changed the links to go to the original server for liveGMS and EasyGMS, they should work now. :)

Does liveGMS/easyGMS load for anyone else? If it doesn't I'll remove it from the list.

When the dash bug is fixed, this resource needs to be updated with a link to the new URL for PRAYEgger.
