Technical Problems Today, January 21, 2007

Hi everyone,
Our server crashed today and it took a little while to get it back up and running correctly. We were able to restore from our backup this morning and import new threads and posts from today. However, any pm's you sent today are going to be lost.

Regards,
Ben P

Thanks for getting it back up Ben. That must have been a serious pain in the butt for you today. Sit back and enjoy a beer. You sure earned it!

I recovered as many of the posts today that existed in the database. If a few do turn out to be missing, they are, unfortunately, unrecoverable.

Regards,
Ben

Ben, you have done a great job! Thanks for fixing the problem so quickly. However, I noticed that when I clicked on some threads, even though the name of the last post was mentioned, his/her post did not show up. You might want to look into it.

It must be really complicated dealing with a huge and always busy site like this. Thanks!

Thank you very much Ben for fixing our situation. Yesterday was a bad day because I couldn't reply to many emails.

Thank you again.
