well...
it's been a painful 15 hours.. but i think we are just about back to where we were 24 hours ago, without any loss of data.
the server we were hosted on had a drive replaced without notice, and accounts were replaced with data that was over a week old.  it looked reallllly touch and go for a while, but we're now back to where we were with no loss of posts.

lesson #1 -> don't just back up the mysql forum databases once per week - i will setup a daily cron job to do it from now on.

lesson #2 -> i'll save it for my blog on friday... or for a further post after i get some sleep.

You weren't asleep for long.   ;)  I don't know about patient, many of us would have realised there was something difficult to solve.   Thanks for all your work on the site.

this new server is seeming quite sluggish, and we're still experiencing a few dns glitches..
i'm setting up another server mirror so no worries, everything will be at top speed soon.

Didn't we?  Some posts related to my goofy "Google Search" coding snacks thing seem to have been lost.  I thought.  Maybe.  Sorta.

sorry that was my fault..
there was 1 thread that was about the early idea of coding snacks that wandered off topic, and your request was in it, so i moved it to a temp area. ill move it back , for the sake of compelteness.

i will write your program at the next coding snacks if no one else does, it can be done in a few hours.
