    Spammers averted

    There was a huge influx of temporary spam thanks to our trying to use a new posting system here. It is amazing that if you have an open registration (without the captcha questions) how these spammers will automate forum signups. That has been nailed shut and they should be gone indefinitely. Hopefully we'll have up some of the new features this weekend.

    Super, we don't need those creatures in here.

    We need good people with bad problems that we can assist.

    Thanks a bunch, Professor, for shutting the door on those pesky creatures.

    Please, keep it closed and locked!!!!
