As of the 8-14-03 update from PayPal my IPN code no longer works.
Can anyone see a problem with this template as to why it would work fine for several months then break?

I had the same problem when we updated to CFMX about a month and a half ago. I spent two days re-writing the code only to find out the original untouched code began to work again.

Go back up to the general IPN questions. PayPal installed a new release that seems to have broken IPN. They installed it last Friday morning.

Try adding a redirect="yes" into your CFHTTP tag.
