Hi Caitlin,

Thanks for your feedback (and your perseverence in providing it)!

The tour pages are in a worse state that you realize. The recent economic
downturn has caused *all* sites linked from the tour pages to be closed, not
just AppWatch (whose loss I still morn).

For this reason the tour pages have been closed down and all links to it
have been removed, I fear you were (one of) the last to visit it. Only the
front page of the tour has a warning message on it though, and search
engines and external pages may still ink deepe r into the tour. Maybe we
should also remove those pages.

We are already working on a replacement for it.

Thanks for the heads-up!
