I just tried Kids' Space Connect - when trying to register received this message:
"We are so sorry, but Kids' Space Connection is not able to accept new applications, due to the sequential loss of our two main supporting companies for their business curtailment. Without the operation budget, we cannot protect children's safety, so KS connection had to close for new registrants, and soon will have to close our internal communication tool, also."

Thanks for the information, Margaret!  I had not looked around the website very much, but now I see that nothing's been updated since 2007.
