COSMICRUST.COM BACK ONLINE: After a long hiatus, we've restored the website as it was from when it silently went dark in 2007. We've unfortunately had to remove some features that aren't up to snuff with today's web technology like our Message Board, but the good news is, at least we're live.
Our About page has been updated to reflect our current status and please contact the webmaster if something is not working right so we can see what we can do.
