Post Hack Problems and phpBB3

Post by aegidian » Wed Jan 05, 2011 11:41 pm

Welcome back.

You'll notice we are now running on phpBB3, there are some funky extras this board can do and I look forward to seeing a fresh burst of activity here.

The interregnum was due to the sad loss of the site when our host machine got hacked. Backups failed (they got corrupted during the attack) and the best we could get back is a year old copy from an abandoned backup disk.

So, we lost a few files. In particular a bunch of old avatars. If your avatar's not showing up, you'll need to upload it again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Have a great 2011!

Welcome back indeed... nice work, Giles. That must have been a headache over the weekend.
