Houston, we had a problem.

    Well, to be blunt--that really sucked. The boards we're supposed to be routinely update for the Y2K issue. But, at the same time, our domain was being moved to another server, which caused more screw ups. Then, after we got this working, I forgot I left 3 lines of code in, that weren't supposed to be there. That deleted all the .ubb files (they store the thread info). Luckily, we still had the HTML files, so I spent 5 or so hours writing a script to grab all the info from the HTML file and put it in a .ubb file. Of course, I also had to change the -99 to -1999 and -100 to -2000, and I wrote a script for that too. But, it was too intensive for a server, so it wouldn't run. So I had to download all 400 or so HTML files and run the scripts locally, then reupload all 400 .ubb files and 400 HTML files. But, now its fixed--it better be.

    Oh yeah, one more thing. On the "thread list" page, the threads actually have one less reply than is listed there. I accidently listed the amount of posts (including the first one).
