The bulletin board system suffered a fatal crash on August 28th.  Efforts to resuscitate the bulletin board exposed several problems in the way the service provider had configured underlying system software.  As a result of the problems, neither the bulletin board's data backup and data restore function worked properly.

It took lots of effort to convince them that they had several bugs in their servers.  When they fixed them, I was able to restore our system (up to a point) however about 15 of the most recently created accounts vanished.

If you experience any problems with the bulletin board, please report them to me ASAP.

Thank you for your patience

Sincerely,

John Papadopoulos - Webmaster
