Access Troubles

You may or may not have noticed some difficulties accessing different parts of the site this morning. We are in the process of upgrading things for our secure server and part of that means splitting things up a bit (between the secure and non-secure parts of the site). Unfortunately, it takes a while for the changes in file and directory location (the 'path') to trickle down to through all the ISPs (Internet Service Providers) out there. If you try going in later, you should be able to access everything.
