BCRA publications stock - final clearout

Re: Forum Upgrade

This is an observation, and not a complaint, but the new template breaks my data-mining program so that my BCA Forum Scanner no longer works. But, as I was intending to decommission it at some point, this is not a problem. It will be decommissioned this afternoon. If you were using this, you just ne...
