Our website host has notified Mike (Ka-Bar03) that our site was hacked last night- so the forum was immediately taken off-line.

We had hoped to simply re-load a backup copy, and get back on-line, but things have gotten a little complicated.

There is a new version of the forum software (more resistant to hackers), but some of our "add-on" forum features are now incompatible.

While Mike and Auke are working on the site re-build, please be patient. It may look goofy at first.

is offline again, maybe some wannabe David Lightman thinks that since the pentagon was to hard to hack this was the next best thing.

This time it should take quite some time. Looks like the forum is compromised in a way, that it is not easy to restore an old config.
Mike and Auke will do a complete system re-install, AFAIK...
