Thank you for your reports.  I will not be able to respond to most of them.

I know there are all kinds of problems, but the fact that the web site is running at all is a monumental achievement at this point.

The web server crashed last night, and I worked through the night trying to bring a backup server online, which is why things gradually returned to normal, piece-by-piece.

Until the regular web server is fixed it is most likely that problems will remain, as it would be too crazy to try to bring everything online on a backup server.

For example, all member pages are offline until the web server is fixed.  That means if Lottery Post is hosting your images, they will not be available until it's fixed.

There are other things too.  I'm just too tired to think of them right now.

Please be patient, as I'm working as hard as I can to get everything set right.

    Update:  I just brought up the regular server at about noon Eastern.  Things are looking much better now, I believe all functions and content are back to normal.

            Thanks, but it's still not working.

            If you can post a link to the exact page (or if it's on several pages, please post a link to one of the pages), and describe the general problem with the page, that would be best. 

            I will be happy to look at it, and whoever else wants to investigate if they have the same problem described by Luminus can feel free to post their experience.

              By the way, the only thing I've personally has a problem with was Image Manager.  When I tried pulling up an image in Image Manager it gave me a look like it wasn't logged in.  So I closed it, then press Ctrl-F5 to refresh the whole page, and then tried it again and it worked.

              It must have been caching something from before the crash, and the Ctrl-F5 cleared it.  Hopefully this can help anyone else who sees the same thing.

                Todd, Thank You for all you do.  Servers, workstations, etc. can be a real PITA sometimes.

                            It has been fixed since noon today.  I'm very happy to hear that your problem's solved.  Maybe there was something on your end compounding the issue.
