You may have noticed that a while back, this site (and ones associated with it) were very often offline.
That is because my ISP was repeatedly shutting the site down for 'malicious behavior.'
Apparently, a PHP script on it had been hacked to send out malware.
For that reason, all scripts have been removed - including the forum.
Unfortunately, the forum will have to remain offline until such time as the forum software can be upgraded.
