Re: the Flex website

Nicholas Kwiatkowski-2
Ok.  I updated the site with a new banner as well as an "Alert box" to let
people know about the FP decommission and about Apache Royale.  Let me know
if you think this is enough.

I am still trying to untangle (re-learn) how the old CMS worked so that I
can port things over to one of the other options.  But for now, I got the
old CMS to push out the new pages for us :)
