I thought I had us ready to start doing some basics, but I think one of my tweaks has actually caused some flakiness with database connectivity. Oops. So, because it's still that unstable, I think you'd all be frustrated, so give me just a little more time. I can tell you that when we open up (sometime tomorrow,I think, Tuesday) there will be some bumps, but you'll be able to make new posts and play around.
I'm off now to troubleshoot the database snafu I accidentally created.
