I installed a new version of our forum tonight. sorry that the forum was down for about 30 minutes & then there was a little problem which was quickly resolved. there are some new features that I will be turning on in the coming weeks.
one of the cooler things is the new registration system that uses the CAPTCHA-based code verification. if you have registered for anything in the past 6 months or so you have seen it. it makes you typr in some computer generated letters to confirm your humanity. it slows up the automated registration systems that the spammers use. I already spend over an hour a week deleting spam registrations, so this should help.
