About 13 weeks ago, the modish.net server was upgraded to a sleeker, faster operating system. At about the same time, several functions--like permitting new people (about 60) to join modish--became inoperable. Due to overwhelming work obligations, it may take some time for me to get things back in order. In the meantime, I have created a Facebook presence for modish.net, it is called Mid-Century Modern Dinnerware. I invite everyone to also gather there for discussions and posting latest finds. Although it was just created recently, it already has more than a hundred members.
