CartoTalk was hacked today but some idiot. I think I have managed to put things right now, but let me know if you run across any weirdness.

Nick,

I'm finding that attempting to access the site from the base URL --http://www.cartotalk.com/-- yields a Directory Listing Denied. I had to enter the site through a link in my e-mail.

Everything is getting fixed. The site has been restored, and the hosting company is fixing the server security and permissions. Until they do you just need to use http://www.cartotalk...ex.php</strong> to access the site.
