Apparently I'm tired too, because I found that way funnier than I probably should have.

But trust me. It's a lot harder on everyone when it has to be built from the ground up. I've been here through almost all of the builds lol. :D

Same here... :sweat: I think I caught all but two of the big crashes (IIRC there was one literally shortly before I got here, and then another which happened during the roughly 13 months of time I was essentially off the KP/ due to conflicts with certain people and the fact that it was taking upwards of five minutes for me to open a thread...)... And, yeah, I've been here a while, since I was here before Wyodaze was... <_<

Thanks for all the work you've put into keeping the Haven ticking Shrink.

I'm really glad that you managed to avoid a repeat of the Great Crash of 2008. Now I know why you chose a wizard as your avatar :D

btw ... since the donation thread got cut as well ... my part should be coming your way this evening.

TSO ... first of all, the new server didn't censor what was being saved, it censored some of what was being submitted.

Second of all ... I'm so ... so tired of you bitching about everything and averyone without even coming close to offering a solution. In the months you've been here, have you donated to the upkeep of the server? After all, the more the upkeep is supported, the better the back-ups will be, don't you think?

If you did donate ... thanks for the effort. But if you didn't, please stop acting as if you're entitled to decide how this board should be run or used.

I don't donate at all either, though, I have a legitament reason not to. Short answer to that is ... I'm simply strapped for cash as I'm working a barely 15hr work week. -_-

gives three cheers to shrink and one to sven

those lost post are probably never coming back so there is no point nagging any more about it

and if you want to blame something blame PhpMyAdmin

That's the thing. I MADE a backup of the site there.. The big problem was that the backup program on the other server failed and ate the data. I am somewhat unimpressed with their services..

Ffordesoon wrote:You've learned an important lesson, Mick: always save your work locally.

i remember when the whole board went kablooey a few years back. I lost my whole first year of posts, and others lost more. That included a lot of my earliest serious writing. It was frustrating, to say the least. There have been other times.

The point being, save your shit.

@Shrink & Sven:

Thanks for saving what you could.


Programmers have an often quoted thing of "Save early, safe often! Life is uncertain." I think we need to add to it "And always save it in at least 2 places."

SQL Databases don't have size limits as such, but after a while they do grow to a point of being unwieldy and hard to work with. The KP's SQL uses over 300MB and has reached that stage where it's hard to handle it size wise. Just as an example, some of the problems I hit were programs that wouldn't allow importing of such a large database.. I actually had to split it into chunks and import in pieces to get around that issue. I was up till 2am trying to fix this board and now back up for work this morning.. I almost gave up and left it for the weekend.

We're grateful that you didn't.

That's a lot of data, is all of that posts and stuff, for the most part?

The links work fine for me, but the lack of contrast hurts my eyeses, precious.
