As I understand it, the hosting company let the URL expire and it was grabbed by one of outfits that hold URL's ransom. Members started the new .org forum, then were able to acquire the .com url again and point it to the .org site. They have also now acquired the archive of the .com site postings and are working on getting that up as a separate read-only site since it will not integrate with the current site.
Thanks guys. I came here yesterday when I got home from the mechanic. I was in such a hurry to post my question that I did not take the time to check out the layout. In the future, I'll employ the search before asking dumb questions
