No problem for me. It might be your browser and cookies. Try refreshing them or deleting the 'old' history...

It really hard to believe these computer nerds have nothing better to do....and for what purpose??

It doesn't look like we lost anything except for some of the photos.

Thanks Jeff and Randy for getting this back up and running! We are all very grateful for your efforts...

Yes, our website, including this forum was hacked on Friday, April 26 at 4:01 PM U.S. Mountain Time. Fortunately our host runs a backup of the site once a month and was able to restore it.

See, I thought it was a tactic by the Brits to get us to forget about Brexit...

Thanks for looking after us and getting the site back up again guys.

Are there issues with uploading photos? Just wonder if it's a result of the hack?

It may be possible the hack was achieved by someone uploading a file so uploading files is turned off for now.
