I picked up another domain (boredCyb.org) and was working on implementing ADS and DNS roles when my server manager decided to give up. I keep reminding myself that this is a silly first world problem, but it still vexes me. I did what is said not to do and changed one small thing while it was installing the new roles. Most likely, I killed the registry with my stupidity. I've searched online for an easy solution but haven't found it yet. Finding a fix will have to wait till I get some more time to deal with this properly.
On a happy note, I received a new sensor the other day. It's a microwave Doppler effect distance sensor. I'm curious to see how this thing works and what I can do. It seems that when you combine it with a PIR, you can eliminate false positives and get great motion detection. I don't have much need for this right now, but I couldn't resist the Doppler effect.
