The downtime was performed and a bad disk was replaced, but this disk corrupted the database table for private messages beyond repair.

The backup for this data was restored, private messages are now working. But all private messages sent/received in the last 24 hours were lost.

Sorry about the loss of the messages, we are looking into ways to reduce this risk.

No worries from me.

Keep up the good work.

Aaah!   :excited:  While the middle of the night seems like a good time to take the site down for maintenance, I'm in a different time zone.  I thought I was going to go crazy without the forum.  Thank you for bringing my crack back online!  Keep up the good work.

Good work, Archer.

All I lost was a scathing rebuttal from Doc to a rude remark I sent him, so all is well.  ;D
"I went down Virginia, seekin' shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain."

Thanks Archer - Know how annoying it is to lose data.  Glad it was limited to a small window.

Well done, Archer!  Looks like the forum is running smoothly at the moment.

If I see you online again less than 8 hrs after your last post, I'm gonna yell at you and send you back to bed. ;)
