Overslept.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: At approximately 5:53 PM EST Wednesday afternoon, we suffered a hard drive failure on our main database server. I do regular data backups and have duplicate hardware on standby for times such as these. The server was quickly repaired and the backup was restored within hours of the failure. Unfortunately all posts, changes to existing accounts and new user registrations made between early Tuesday morning (February 21) and Wednesday afternoon were lost in the crash. If you created a new account between approximately 7:00 AM EST on Tuesday and 5:53 PM EST on Wednesday, then you will need to re-register.

I fully understand that losing even 36 hours worth of posts is quite a inconvenience. I sincerely apologize for any problems this data loss has caused our members. Believe me, I share your stress, but I am also thankful that we were able to get back up and running fairly quickly and with a relatively small amount of data loss. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I’m running late this morning: it’s been a rough couple of days, and I overslept. Have a great Friday!
