Well it happened again..
« on: Mar 23, 2006, 02:12 AM »
Due to complications beyond my control, we have apparently just lost the last 3 days of posts  :roll: . On the bright side, the PM system is now functioning as it used to before the server ran out of hard drive space  ](*,) (I was well below my limit, rest assured) on the 19th (just a few noticed the outtage before the site was back online)

I'm waiting on a reply as to if they backed things up before blasting the past 3 days of posts.. I severly hope so.. as this isn't the first time information has been lost since signing up with this host (www.hostm.com)

I'll let you guys know more as it unfolds..

sigh..

UPDATE: They did create a backup first.. I'm going to find out if I'm able to somehow merge/swap the PM table in the backup, and test if I can get some of these fuckin posts back without re-breaking the PM functions..

After trying my luck out - it looks like I'm likely going to have to give it another go from a different angle, or just pretend the last 3 days never happened

Should you notice anything wrong, errors, etc.. with the site in the meantime.. please let me know.

cheers

At one point this morning I logged on and saw all the posts from yesterday.  I got to look at a few before it went back into maintenance mode.  So they are out there somewhere CD. 

I just noticed that my post count would reflect the fact that the last few days were lost.  I had just passed 2400 and now am down to 2391.

Yup, I had restored/replaced the database table for messages (posts) this morning, but there seemed to be some problem when it was reporting the latest post in each section - still showing the latest posts being from the 19th, but after you enter the forum you see other posts made after the 19th - so there's some issues I'll be trying to work out.. I've got complete access to all of the posts over the 3 days - it's just a matter of finding out if I can get them back on and still have everything else work. :)

It's almost like we hit a wormhole and everything reverted back to a few days ago.  Kinda feels weird.

As far as posting goes, I feel all fucked up seeing people post to topics that have been out dated for a while.

Stupid servers.  CD better get out his beatin' stick and smack some lay down.

I've got a backup of the recent PMs, but that part of the database was corrupted when the dang hard drive ran outta space - which ended up being the only sign that there was even a problem at all.. I'm almost glad something broke before it went too long unnoticed and we would have ended up losing even more.

What I will probably do if it's possible, is put up a 2nd forum that will hopefully have a melding of the missing PMs and posts (that will unforunately likely have to be a small loss as I've been having troubles mixing & matching backups with current data) - and everyone can log in, and if there are any PMs they need to save/backup to a text file or something - grab em, and read up on any of the missing topics if you care to re-establish them here again. Then once everyone has ample time to grab/read what they need - we'll all just pretend it never happened, and once I move hosting servers the string of problems with this current host should be over with.

Thanks for all of your hard work CD. Even though in the past I have dismissed it as just a T.V. show site, in the last month I've come to realize that it's alot more. I have made friends on here that even after TPB's are off the air and long gone, I'll still have these special people. They have said things to myself and my wife that  we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
  Thanks again CD

Seems like it's kinda hard to pick up on those threads , knowing that there are those lost posts , makes it strange to post on them . Ya know what I mean ?

YES!!! I feel like I dreamed for a few days, and now all I saw or posted is wiped out like a dream. Okay, so maybe I'm gettin' too dramatic here...
