We're still here, NC.  We haven't forgotten the forum!

Thanks guys!!

I'm still waiting on some advice from the SMF community as to how to fix the DB error(s) we still are getting, but at this point it looks like it may be tomorrow before I get an answer. I have a running post to their support forum over there, but no answer as of yet.

In the meantime, if any of you have any MySQL database experience or PHP/forum software experience, let me know. Since the problem I'm having is DB-related, we might be able to figure out an answer to things on our own...not likely, but possible.

BTW...I really feel badly about the lost posts, but the whole DB was so virus-infected that it was not practical for me to repair it. Like someone said, better to have a running forum than not, eh?

Many, many thanks for the colossal effort, Steve.  I have missed the place, and the people.  The lost posts are a very small price to pay--

And if you log-in, you can send PMs!!...but then you can't read the year-old posts, so you'd have to log out again.

I call it, "CPF Gold!"

WE'RE BACK!!! (And yes, I'm shouting about it!)

I still need to restore some site features, but it looks to me like all is operational. If you encounter any issues, either PM me or post about them here and I'll attend to them.

Just a temporary billing / servicing issue...we should be back online in the next couple of hours or so.
