    Hi Lou!

    Craig's server evidently suffered what has been described as a "massive hacking and denial of service attack," which basically cooked the board. It was off-line for two weeks, and there are still pieces missing (like my avatar and some of the comments on the journals).

    Why sabre? Because you don't take heads with the point.

    Oh right; glad to know it wasn't me who broke it...

    Maybe fate was telling you to get a new avatar? How about one that's actually a picture of you (I am nosey)?

    That IS a picture of me!

    And there is a picture of me in the photo gallery (if it ever comes up again).

    Has anyone else notices some other stange things with the sight- I'm assuming that all of the missing or changed stuff is due to the hacking.

    there will likely be bugs for a while, since things are referencing parts of the page that no longer exist.
