Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Glad to See the Forum Back

With the crap going on gunboards with deleting posts and entire threads I'm glad this forum is back. I hope the archives can be recovered.

That is looking bleak, but we're back now for a long long time, so from this point forward there will be lots and lots of backups accessible to several people. No more all eggs in one basket situations. Welcome back!

Sorry the old content can't be easily recovered, but I did get my old nickname back, so there is that, :)

It's great to have the forum back. Too bad about the archives but I expect we will muddle through and rebuild them as time goes by!

True. I'm trying to make this time the last time with automated backups of both the forums and the entire host. Alongside off-site backups I'll also add some users who have access to the backups in the event of catastrophic emergencies (death of the admin being one)

Good deal bossman. At least this time it is the same basic format.

I changed the naming convention slightly but I added in all the subforums and whatnot from the old site as best I could.

Amazing work done by those behind the scenes. Fingers crossed that the old data can be recovered, if not, looking forward to the rebuilding of the massive amount of knowledge.

From a very appreciative Australian!
