I wish this was an April Fool's posting, but it's not.

As you all can see from the wonky font, things are not as they should be here at the forum. It appears that we were hacked midday on Tuesday, along with Trucker's other forum, which is now MIA, and a couple of Anne's.

Trucker won't be able to get to it until this evening at the earliest. The posting features seem to be working. But please use caution in your use of the forum, since to fix this he may have to restore an earlier backup. Hold off on posting anything important, or keep local copies of what you post, so you can repost it later in case it gets lost.

Hang in there and please be patient,
Brian

Everything should now be back to normal. Sorry for all the april fools confusion. I got home to this mess and spent all afternoon fixing it. I now need to update this board as it's a tad out of date. That allowed someone to hack in using the forum as a means to get in.

And we've been hacked again. I have the forum back up again, but those using the redish theme will find it doesn't look the same. I'll get that fixed later.

Thanks Trucker. They only got one of my sites this time, but that's a lot easier to fix than this is.

This was actually easy this time. I just uploaded the latest version and upgraded. That get's us to the newest version, but doesn't fix the security hole.

Ok, once more, we are back online. Hopefully, this will stick this time.
Sorry for all the down time. I've been working on this error all day.
Some avatars aren't working. I have no clue why. Sorry about that.
