Special Thanks:

  • Alan @ jFusion for his hours of time donated to assist with the integration of Joomla! and phpBB
  • sk0re @ for his support and assistive modifications of AEC to help fit the SMA model.
  • Keith @ for his continuing support on modifications for the Administrative Interface.
  • Giang @ OS Solutions for his custom programming at affordable prices and his continuing support of the modules developed.
  • The VAST open source community that monitors & posts to various forums and shares their knowledge of how to fix issues and ideas to help develop continuing versions of the software we use.

A very special and final thanks to Steven Espach and Bill Jones who, with very little outside assistance, built and maintained versions 1 and 2 of the SMA website (respectively).  Without their efforts, the current website would have been a much more difficult project.
