Welcome Back and sorry for the time travel....

Post by Keith Jordan »

Well... there was a hardware problem in the data centre where this site is hosted and... well... it crashed and corrupted the database server, loads of system files and some other things.

I have managed to recover most of the website but, unfortunately, I have had to restore a backup of the forum from 6th July 2010. This means that anything that happened on the forum after that point has been permanently lost forever! I am sorry about that and will look at doing proper and full off server backups more often. Indeed, I restored the forum from my weekly off server backup. I will not be doing this backup daily!!!!!!

Please have a look around the site and, if you notice any problems, please let me know ASAP so I can fix!


So.... welcome back!

probably just as well the site has been down since the surprise WatersGilmour reunion last saturday night, as there was therefor no real discussion on that to be lost
or did that whole event get wiped out in the recalibrating of the spacetime continuum as well?
am I the only human being on earth that "remembers" that "happening"?
sort of like Leonard Nimoy in the Star Trek reboot?
oh yeh thats right, right after Waters and Gilmour played together for a surprise charity gig Hell froze over, then the earth exploded, then the spacetime continuum was recalibrated and in this rebooted timeline we better make sure that sequence of events never happens ... so David Gilmour dont you dare play a surprise charity gig with Roger Waters!

All that reunion stuff will be lost on the forum but not on the main site and photo gallery as those database were recoverable. The forum database was in use at the time of the Great Crash and got corrupted on the disk.

Shit happens. ](*,)

It happens, especially when this forum's database is literally always active.

It's so unfortunate it happened just when something exciting happened in the Pink Floyd universe :(

I know. But there is very little to discuss about it anyway I guess. Could start a thread now on it.
