We've had some real problems with our forum - it seems the Joomla built in forum was vulnerable to hacker attacks, as well as malicious posting - so I've found a much better solution, which you can see here (or by clicking on the people icon above).
There have also been some major problems since my hosting company upgraded their version of PHP - causing broken links, (like the newsletters links for the podcast) - as well as registration problems and more. I'm in the process of fixing all of this stuff - but please bear with me during the next week or so, as I'm basically rebuilding the site. Not from scratch - just sort of reassembling the parts with a cleaner foundation.
If you experience login troubles or any other problems - there's no need to email me as I'm already working on it! I do appreciate the emails I've had informing me of various problems with the site - for otherwise I may not have known about them. Sorry that I've been extra bad about responding to emails lately, but I've only recently gone back to work after several months of wedding planning, travel, and having relatives in town!
