Hi folks...did a security update this evening to the software that runs the message board. Turns out it broke a few things.
It looks like functionality is pretty much ok, but it's going to take a little while to get it back to what it looked like. I'm going to keep working on it a bit this evening, but might not get it all worked out until I can spend more time on it tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience.

The quick link to pickem game is missing from the main page.
If anyone needs it, here it is.

If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Fixed. And I think I have the page/link added in such a way that future updates should not break things.

Thanks ST. One thing I noticed on my cell device is that I no longer can scroll horizontally on the leaderboard sheet to get to the Submit Picks link. Turning the phone 90 degrees allows more of it to visible and part of the Submit Picks link shows up. Maybe its just me or maybe I am doing someting wrong, but I dont remember not being able to scroll horizontally on that sheet. Or maybe scrolling was only there when I opened the sheet in a new window like it was before.

Ok, I'll take a look at that and see what I can figure out.

Otherwise, I think things should be pretty much back to normal, so I'll go ahead and "un-sticky" this post.
