DOWNTIME WARNING

Unread postby Shrink908 » Sat Jun 30, 2012 10:32 am

I will be doing some major re-working of services over the weekend to increase speed/reliability.. Therefore there will be some downtime.. and I am not sure when.. So if we're gone, be sure we'll be back.

Oh for the love of all that is unholy...

I am SO SO SO sorry!

We lost everything since 6/30 at 11:30am... The new server ATE the database when I went to download it to move it back here.. I was moving back here because the new host apparently CENSORS things and I just didn't know till people brought it up and I tested it.. So.. It's now back on my private server where there's no censorship... I am just glad I didn't have to start the board over from scratch..

EDIT: I appreciate the help of Sven listened while I cussed and swore at this thing to get it working again.. He also volunteered to help with a major bit of work that fortunately wasn't necessary in the end..

I think someone needs to let the magic smoke out of the formerly-new server. Who the hell censors things and keeps that a bloody secret?

Well, I'm just glad you got everything up and running again.

We lost almost all of the Brave thread

And what is stopping you from retrieving your data?

Also lost 15 pages of the LPTP thread. Thankfully, I have the odd habit of keeping windows open whenever I post a cookie, so I didn't lose my latest work...

I can't even begin to understand the techno lingo, Shrink, but I understand that it's all very difficult. Thanks for all your efforts!

It's alright with us Shrink. Considering what further issues this probably could've caused, we're pretty lucky we didn't lose more.
We all appreciate the work you and Sven do for everyone here. :)

Benzie, I'll really dumb this down for you. Basically: Shrink had everything after 06-30-12 at 11:30 saved to someone else's computer, and they censored what was being saved... And then there was no back-up because... Idk, there should have been one.

Is there no way to somehow retrieve and repost the lost files?

If someone happened to back up the posts on their own computer; the urls are no longer valid so entire pages are lost on the net. According to Shrink's post, the information was lost during the return.

I'm not sure what, other than just being really young, makes you so full of yourself, but I have had enough of you. You have been warned by several senior members of this site and at least two administrators about your behavior. I have chosen up until now to simply ignore you, but this is the last straw.

Nothing we can do mick. Sorry. We should be thankful they were able to save the board itself and we don't have to start from scractch. Thanks for all the hard work Shrink and Sven.
