I followed the instructions and rebuilt the book. Nedless to say it did not

This isn't really the likely relevant newsgroup, but I don't think there
would be any newsgroup that this question relates to.  Dreambook appear
to run their own service and they would be the one's to help.  It could
be a corruption issue, maybe someone guessed your password, or some
technical issue is the cause, but I don't think anyone here would be
able to say one way or the other of what happened with any certainty.
That said, it just seems that the service is some cheap thing that the
host offers.

Their site shows a contact form at http://www.dreamhost.com/contact.cgi
which appears to the the host in question.  They likely offer this
service for free hoping to get paying clients from it, but this also
usually means it's not the priority to getting things fixed, maintained
or kept secure or up to date.  In fact, their main panel for "get help
here" is a 404 (page not found) response, which attests to just how
unimportant this free service they offer is.  All of the links
basically go to their paid hosting site, so contact them there.  My
suggestion is to use a script on your own site and not have to suffer
through the issues that a lot of free services usually have.  Good
