September 23rd outage
« on: September 24, 2010, 04:12:16 AM »
Hiya Folks,

the hypnotoad didn't get along with the silicon powers and there was a nasty problem with the machine hosting the forum yesterday as you might have noticed.... couldn't access the website at all and things were a bit shaky.

The issue is now resolved but unfortunately, in the process, the backup from September 22nd got corrupted and the most reliable restore point was from September 21st.

In plain English, shit hit the fan and we lost all the posts from September 22nd and early 23rd... but operations should resume as usual

Sorry about that

Hmmmmm.... mmmmmmmmmm

Well, I had thought the problem was MY fault. amamamamam
I had, well, uh...sorta forgot to pay the internet bill... aoaoaoaoao

To wit: the reminders to renew our domain name all went to a e-mail address I don't use very often, and our domain name had expired. bibibibibi

Seeing the site down today galvanized me into action, and the domain is now again safely in my kung-fu grip. bfbfbfbfbf

So I'm sho'nuff glad to hear it wasn't me after all. aeaeaeaeae
