I tried the New Posts link (as I always do when I visit this site) and it told me I didn't have permission (essentially for doing a Search). I logged out/in and now the New Posts and Search options are gone completely.
The only menu bar options displayed are:
User CP FAQ Members List Calendar Quick Links Log Out
and I am logged in...

I imagine this is a result of whatever Joe did last night. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.
btw: I was able to post this, then edit it OK.
