All of the reports look fine except the program won't identify that 
the list exists. Conclusion: corrupted config.pck.

So I dug around and found a old config.pck for that list from last 
year and saved it to the lists/listname directory and -- wonders of 
wonders -- the list's webpages are all back including members and 
archives. The configuration needs to be updated but everything else 
is there. :) Now on to enjoy the rest of my weekend.
