Oh no :(

 

Some of my best posts have been made in the last few months. This is a travesty :(

 

Please keep some floppies handy and backup on a daily basis floppy_disk.jpg

 

Other than that though, Well done for getting us back up and running, and it must be a nightmare!

Hey! Thanks for all your efforts in getting the board back up and running for us!!

 

I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms too.

 

Yeah it is a shame about the loss of posts but I'm glad the board's back up and running now! :)

I probably shouldn't react - it's not good to feed trolls, but do you know what? The words 'stuffed' and 'get' spring to mind reading this and that's the polite version :angry:

I agree, during the down time, I didn't know what to do with myself!

And if you hadn't already posted, Janet, I'd have been clicking on the 'preview' button :angry:

 

:clap: and :bowdown: to Gaynor and Sal :)

I love how you deleted the bottom bit of my post which said the said the same as everyone else is saying. As for the bit you quoted - it was meant light hearidtly (hence the floppies) so please don't asume my post was a personal attack.

 

I'm glad the board is back and the last few days must be a nightmare for staff.

 

I'd rather you ignore my posts in future if I offend you, rather than being rude.

OK, I know it's bad to feed trolls but FGS, what a cheek you have to give Janet a talking down to for being rude, when you have been nothing but offensive to a lot of people. Plus I don't think it's for you to say to tell an admin to be ignoring posts. :angry:

 

Oh, and don't worry we haven't forgot all of your 'best' posts. :rolleyes:

Hmmm yes, 800Mb would fit nicely on a floppy :rolleyes:

 

If only it were that easy. I can't be bothered to fully go into what we've been through in the last few days but it was long, complicated and very tiring. Especially as we didn't have access to the entirety of the server and had to use work-arounds. And I don't know what would have happened if Sal and I didn't have specialised computing knowledge of the working of webservers, databases, SQL etc etc as the hosts didn't have a clue. Having a non-corrupted backup was only one piece in the puzzle :???:

 

Thanks to everyone for their kind words, I think I'll have an early night tonight! :lol:

You deserve a bath, hot chocolate and early night after all that! Will you be changing hosts?

Not since they've agreed to double our space for free as an apology, no :lol:

 

As Sal said last night - most of the time they're fine, it's just when they mess up they do it in style. That's part of the reason why we moved the summaries archive to a separate host - so it could be independent.

 

I am liking the bath, hot chocolate and early night plan :)

That's like saying that Hitler made some of his best decisions in 1943.

 

Thanks to everyone who sorted this out :D

So glad this place is back up!!! Shame about the more recent posts, but it's better to have this place exist with lost posts than not at all! :D
