MacKichan Software has moved from our Bainbridge Island offices to larger offices in Poulsbo, Washington. Here's how to reach us now:
|Address:||19689 7th Avenue NE, Suite 183 #238
Poulsbo, WA 98370
Our email addresses remain the same. This new office site doubles our shipping and storage space, and will allow us to serve your better.
When we moved our offices, our DNS changed, but an out-of-date DNS host record remained on Network Solutions' server. We apologize for any difficulties you may have experienced while trying to access our website at www.machickan.com during this time. We have now updated the record and expect no further problems. The host names used for online licensing and email did not experience any problems and have functioned correctly since the move.

User John Gresham from Ranger College in Texas has provided two blank grids that you can download as fragments for use in Version 3.5, 4.0, and 4.1 installations:
