    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).

    MR

    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)?

    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.
