Well it seems that when I was playing with the database I broke new user registrations. It should be fixed at this time.
I‘ve been eyeing the Sun Fire T2000 Server. Slashdot has an article on how they might let people keep them for free for a blogger whom fairly assesses the server for good or mal. This would be a wonderful upgrade for the machine that these pages are currently being served off. And if they dont let me keep it for free. Well then I will just have to give it back after 60 days.
