I kept noticing the link on the home page was pointing to this:

http://songfight.net/forums/install/index.php

instead of here:

http://songfight.net/forums/

but yeah. I'm curious and nosy too.

I don't have login access to the server anymore (the shell password had to be reset and I never got around to getting it from JB) but judging by that error it seems like it was most likely a botched upgrade. I know that Dreamhost has been pushing a phpBB security update to every site and sometimes their automated update mechanism breaks things.

That was my first guess, fluffy. Great minds think alike, amirite?
If I had a dollar for every one of my songs j$ has called a 90s pastiche, I'd have $1 for every song I've written.
