  1. Hi,

    I visited your website today and found that you were linking back to and mentioning our previous website, The link is now dead.

    Our new website is now at – it’s still the same goals and visions we had with ichabodink but with better logos and business plans :)

    I’d like to know if it’s possible to change the link so we won’t lead people to broken websites and 404s.
