    Hi all, well after a long night and tough day we have put the backup up from May 19th. We had backups from just 2 days ago, but there were numerous errors in the backup. I had two of my guys work for several hours trying to make a program to merge two different databases so that we wouldn't loose posts, however this did not work.

    We ended up having to go to the May 19th backup. This means all posts made and members who signed up in the last 20 days are gone. I wish we didn't have to do this but we did :-(

    For those of you who don't know what happened yesterday, Rip The Jacker, one of the mods here basically went nuts and moved almost all the topics to the trash folder. I have no clue why he has done this, as he was always friendly to me in IM chats I would have with him. If any of you hear an explanation from him about why he did what he did, then please let me know. For now I have banned him from the site.

    Sorry once again for the downtime and loss of posts.
    If you have any questions please ask. I wil be back in an hour
    Brian

    well, atleast the board is working now...

    btw, peerzyboy told me you had 56k internet, and that the file for backups was over 700mb...are these true? I don't think it is possible to upload 700mb in one day with 56k...

    edit: i made 500 posts in the last 20 days mostly in hardware world!

    Yes that is true but I didn't do the work. My server admin and programmers did most of it for me.

    Cheers Rookie, good work on bringing things back online. A lesser man would have just thrown in the towel.

    Sounds like you're having a tough time with the board rookie.
    Thanks for keeping the board up and in some sort of order after the disaster you just had. :beerchug:
