Woops! While trying to update some Geeklog plugins to help fight the Spammers (I am getting hundreds and hundreds of bogus user registrations per day), I broke parts of the site. I am normally more careful about making a backup immediately before starting an upgrade, but in this case, I had Faith and Trust.

And Backups... luckily.

Site restored.

And so I announce... I might be making changes to the registration process to help combat the high volume of spam account creation.
