My internet provider (Frontier) went down at the same time I was in the middle of updating the forum header. I think this was on Thanksgiving) The result, it seems, is that the database was corrupted.
I'm looking into the problems and hope to fix soon as I find solutions. Worst case scenario is that we will need to rebuild using a backup. Unfortunatly, that backup is dated 10/23/15. I thought I had a backup more recent but I can't find it.
So, problem is acknowledged and I'm working it.
thanks for the heads up.
