Ok, I screwed up. I messed up the links within the profile. :/ Been a while since I did any html. Afraid to try and fix as I cannot ascertain exactly where the links are. (I did not remove the link location, just the way to make it so you can get there) Such as the jessecorn.html, I did not change that, but do not know where it is as that is all there is on the link. I PROMISE I didn't mess that part up. :( Send me nasty notes, I deserve them. :(
