    I know there has not been much activity around here lately, but we are still trying to maintain the website the best we can.

    It came to my attention that our site had been hacked, and was being used to send spam e-mails (over 160k e-mails had been sent) :eek:

    In working through the issue, I had to basically wipe the server and reinstall most everything. The database was not corrupted, so most of everyone's user names and logins should work.

    The one immediate issue is that most of your Avatars and Signature files are now gone. Sorry for that.

    So, if you do jump back on the site, please take a minute to update your avatar and signature if needed.

    I also went through and pruned out a ton of old forum threads. Some went back to 2004, and had not been replied in for a few years,.
