Let us know!

The new MSB website is still under development, particularly the English pages. This means that some of the functions on the English site are not in operation yet.
Over the next few weeks we hope to have the English site as complete as possible, as regards texts and functions. And to help us with this we would really appreciate if you could tell us the type of functions you would like to see and which you would find useful on the English pages.
