that site, however is just asking to be hacked and/or crash when the host upgrades php. They are 17 versions behind.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

     Many thanks! I did post a link on that forum back to this conversation. *Maybe* the website owner will think about the upgrade. Maybe ...
