Welcome back people, to the 3rd of december 2002!!!!!!!
Yes thats right because of lots of shitty things going on, our newest "FULL" backup is from the 3rd of december, so firstly i'd like to say sorry to everyone who registration just got wiped off the board, you'll have to register again i'm afraid.
Secondly sorry to everyone else, you just lost a fuck load of posts, i estimate around 7000 post have been lost, and 3 and a half virtual game missions.

Now in the words of jay and silent bob:
fuck, fuck, fuck, mother mother fuck, mother mother fuck fuck, mother fuck, mother fuck, nouss nouss nouss.

well come on, you'll all have to catch back up now, Happy. I would do a mass e-mail thingy, but its a waste becasue of the 70 members that got wiped off the board, so i'll see if i can use dobs mass e-mail thingy to do it instead.

Right now 3 more things,
1st: Search will not work for any of the posts that are here now (becasue that means another 28mbs of database files to be uploaded, and it was hard enoug to get this much up)
2nd: I know theres some forums missing, i can't remeber which onces, but i'll be putting them back soon.

And 3rd, if you know people to go here, please tell them we're back!!!!!

Yep. I'm getting that slowness too. Maybe it actually needed them other 28 megs to work properly, at normal speed.

How possibly could search words end up at 28 megabytes?? Were there many billion words or something? Eek!

Yes,



put it this way, everytime you post it takes all the words and puts them into the database, with the post id and some other stuff.

so in 18000 posts how many words do you think there are??

Do you remember what your post count was Simmo? I can put it back. Don't lie I'm sure Scooter will know if you're telling the truth Wink

It was something around 4350-4400, I think. Scooter was about.... 5 behind, somewhere around there.

Ancient at 20? Ha!

BTW, speaking of post counts, I'm not below 1000 but I think I used to be close to 2000, not that it matters anyway. Na na!

Crying over lost posts makes more sense than complaining about post count.

You are complaining about losing posts? I lost my account! I'm having the same trouble logging in that I did about 8 months from now Wink.

Anyway, do you know if the VG will start again soon? I need my fix!

Well, it just kinda sucks losing like HALF your post count and the contents of them. Sad Last night I was all pissed off at a stupid project that had to be done Tuesday and I was afraid that I wouldn't get it done in time because of other homework, yawdy yaw... and I was tired... bach.

Thank goodness... Cool!

Too bad about the post count, but I didn't have many posts anyway. Na na!
Oh, one question: why the heck did I get a "happy birthday" message? Huh?

lol probably because the forum last recognised you logged in in December, and you're birthday was between then and now, so it gave you a belated birthday message.

Woo Hoo!! It's back, haha I even got a month old birthday popup thing. But looks like we've lost some topics. Well I'm glad these are up at least. I hope my post count is right. I haven't checked it yet.



EDIT: Haha I looked at my post count, its down by about 25 or 30, where it was when I left last year.
