The ATW appears to have been taken over by a commercial concern which has removed rival sites from its listings. This is a shame as it was such an excellent concept.

I have emailed Gary Pratt about this. I am furious about what he has done. It seems that my site has been replaced by a site that charges for resources:

Yours and mine. Whereas we both carry advertising to keep our sites free to the end user this new ATW appears to be solely concerned with selling resources of a dubious quality.

On the "About Us" page of their website we find the following
" When you find a site that has useful material we would encourage you to donate or buy: many high quality sites have been forced to close in the last few years due to lack of funding."
