A quick update for everyone.
First and foremost, the site should be back up and running fine now, attachments included.
The other day, when I installed the new hard drive, I must have accidentally managed to snap the little clip on the back of the pins on the other IDE drive, which apparently damaged one of the little pins. Evidence below, taken from my cell phone camera in the data center. You can see the cable and the broken clip laying next to my duffle bag
That caused some communication problems on the server (obviously - lol).
Cable is replaced, all is well, and there is joy in Mudville. Now I return you to your regularly scheduled programming ...
