And it will be worth $505 CND:lol:
Oh man Nathan, sorry for the trouble.
No worries, I haven't met any "don't need to sat the N word" tools on here. I'm sure everyone understands. My husband runs a couple forums and can relate.
Mybe you two can talk geek shop at the Dragon :cornut:
Told ya not to let Naterbob near the dang computer....:incazzato:
Stuff happens, hate ya had to go through this and know it must have been a PITA..
Nathan, just remember the old Canuckian saying, beer fixes everything.
This is a Booker Noe kind of evening, bout 4 fingers worth at that...
From now on we shall refer to this as getting Toyotaed.
I'm checking now
Don't sweat it guy. If anything it gives us something non-Drgaon related to talk about. Thanks for the prompt email btw, it sure beats the pants off the members trying to figure out what happened WEEKS after a site goes down. :arf:
Yes I can wear my MA shirt and keep the MA decal on my MINI!
It is too bad about what happened and I know that Nathan will beat himself up for it for a while. But it happens and we move on.
No worries Nathan, shi* happens
True. On the other hand, I can think of some posts whose disappearance is quite forgivable (some of mine included):lol:.
Nathan...I know your pain. I'm an IT manager for an IT consulting company...seen it, lived it, never miss it.
what db do you use? I may be able to point you to a few tools to assist with backups and copies...etc...
Wasn't this all due to a Whore-izon virus infected flashing banner?
db is MySQL, the host uses R1Soft backup software that backs up the db every hour. However, when the site was moved the host thought they changed the db root pw to the same as the server root pw. Alas, they did not, hence the backups were empty. I've verified that there are backups with info now.
No, it still works. Must be some other company. Maybe that guy Nitro?
Oops - been there, done that, have the scars.....
I have no idea what I posted, other than the usual cars and coffee stuff, which I can recreate later today.....
So long as it is up and going foward. :arf:
Lost a little history (maybe a small gap), but things have the way of repeating themselves.
Nice to see you back Nate and very good PR with the email.
I have a feeling the Hosting company connected the hyperlocity throttle booster to their backup system and cranked it to 11.
I know how you feel, Nathan.
There was one time in my career when I worked at a phone company where I delete an entire day's of long distance data while on a late night call-out. That was worth a few million. Thankfully, my system had just completed a full back-up not 5 minutes before it happened. But for that moment when you realize what you did and when you can make the recovery, your heart goes through the floor.
You'll laugh about it and call it a great learning experience when this is all over.
