Fixing the site…. again

The JRO site has been hacked many times during the last two years. It has been an ordeal to say the least. Now it has been up for more than 2 months in continuation without any successful hacking and I have decided to give the site another go. I hope this time it will remain un-hacked for a while.

I am sorry for the problems caused to our readership.
