Site Maintenance at 11:30pm New York time

Unread postby Steve E. » Sat Jan 28, 2017 11:50 pm

in roughly 40 minutes from now, I am going to take the site down for (hopefully only) a few minutes, to upgrade the software as a security measure. Hopefully no biggie, and it will come right back up.

OK?

Hopefully a few minutes. Ha!

Truly terrifying, folks, upgrading software. And I discovered that our hosting site had done incomplete backups this month, and I had to scavenge the site's architecture from some older backups on my computer. And at the end of all that, the site wasn't actually updated.

Let me know if anything looks funny.

Search function is fixed. Please keep letting me know if you find any broken pages. I am aware that the banner ads are not set up as they were before, although they are there.
