ok here is where the links directory takes you:

http://www.classictw.com/entry_category.asp?CatID=7

as you can see, there is a clear link to the TWGS. clicking on that link takes you here:

http://www.classictw.com/entry_sub_category.asp?SubID=2

which is a page that looks EXACTLY like the page before, but the text is gray. now - i would expect to be on the eisonline page at this point, and seeing no links at all to click, i posted this thread. call me crazy, but my screen is only 1024x768 and if i had scrolled down i would have found a link to eisonline. so either i'm an idiot - or - the links directory unnecessarily onerous to navigate. why should you have to go 3 levels deep to find something?

Because, you are an American and you can... and you should!
Because, going three levels deep is what separates you from the little guys.
Because, doing it this way is what makes you a patriot with class, distinction, and style.
Because, clicking on all those links is really just a honorable way of saying I love this Country, I support this Country, and I will fight to my death for this Country!
Because, clicking those links lets everybody know that you are not one to be bound by the social pretenses and negatives that have been burdened and forced upon you since your birth.
Because, you are not one to be bound by these prefabbed walls of injustice and solitude!
Because, you get to take a bit of a break from the color of fiery banana yellow; with pearl gloss.

Okay in the links directory, click the link: EIS (TWGS) software, then click: TWGS when it comes up, then on the screen that comes up, click on the: http://www.eisonline.com/twgs/beta link that comes up, that will take you to the TWGS download site.

"But Mr Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine month."

"Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anybody or anything."

"But the plans were on display ..."

"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."

"That's the display department."

"With a torch."

"Ah, well the lights had probably gone."

"So had the stairs."

"But look, you found the notice didn't you?"

"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard."
