    Our search server was compromised over the past 24 hours. I've turned it off while I figure out how to best secure it and get it back up and running. Thanks for your patience and understanding! Search will be back online ASAP!

    I did notice that, but it was working fine again this morning. Thanks for letting us know what's going on Josh. Hope its an easy fix.

    Yes, that's what Josh told us last week - it was hacked.

    I have always had trouble searching for old Bob stories and the like. I always figured it was because I am not computer literate enough. TFO has grown and changed a lot, but that doesn't make it bad, just different. I still love posting here and miss most of you guys when I am sick and can't read or post. I love TFO, thanks for all your hard work Josh...
