The February - March 2002 issue of CRUFFLER.COM (
http://www.cruffler.com ) is out and available for your reading

WEB SERVER: We've changed servers three times in the last three weeks,

CRUFFLER.COM logo items such as denim work shirts, t-shirts, and mugs.
SALES: We'll be hosting an electronic catalog, with payment options
including PayPal for firearms and accessories for sale both by
CRUFFLER.COM and by private sellers wishing to publicize their
offerings. If you're interested in posting your items for sale on
CRUFFLER.COM, please let us know and we can discuss terms and
