NextGen Gallery Software Crashed Our Site

As you may know, the website has had some issues, lately. The software used for the photo galleries used all of the memory of the server that our website runs on, causing it to repeatedly crash, taking not only our own website down, but other websites, also. It was so bad, that the company that owns the computer that our website run on thought that our site had been hacked, and infected with malware, when it was just software gone bad. This software, called NextGen Gallery, was, at one time, the best available. For quite some time, however, many people have been having difficulties with it, as have we. We have fixed the issues as they have come up, at the expense of other software. However, it has now just become too much of a problem, and our hosting service has charged us real money for their troubles, not to mention suspending our site for several weeks, while they tried to sort it out. We have made contact with the company that makes the NextGen gallery software, as have others, but they have been unresponsive. Unfortunately, the developers of the NextGen software have just become sloppy, lazy, and apathetic to their users (and to think they charge money for it!). The NextGen gallery software has been removed, and the website is now functioning, again. We were able to save all of the photos. We are in the process of reloading the photos to website. Not all of the photos have been loaded, yet, and you will notice some changes with those galleries that have been updated. Thank you for your patience, as we continue to fix this problem.
