The Idea Futures system at ARC is longer being maintained and will be shut
down in a month or so -- assuming it doesn't crash before then ;->.  With
ARC's blessing, Ideosphere Inc.'s FX system has taken over.  The transition
wasn't as smooth as we would have liked because the fellow maintaining ARC's
system was getting ready to move to Vancouver at the time. Sorry for the
confusion.

We've brought over most of the active claims as of early July, although some
old non-favourites such as "Time" were given merciful deaths. We created
user accounts for those who were owners or judges of the imported claims,
although we did not bring across either the holdings or the scores (because
the scoring algorithm has changed). Everyone who signs up now will get a
cash balance of 1000 credits and no weekly allowance, though eventually
we'll probably move back to the $50/week allowance (starting from $0) used
by the old system.

Hope this clarifies things.  Questions and bug reports can be sent to
info@ideosphere.com.  Thanks.
        -Ken
