SERVER CRASH.

We had a major power failure at our hosting provider earlier today, which knocked out a lot of equipment. Everything is back up and running again.

Unfortunately this meant that things didn't shutdown cleanly, and we suffered some database damage during the process.

The most noticeable issue at the moment is that Nextdoorland has vanished from the list of forums, although we could also have some other damage. The posts are still there, it's just the container for them that's missing.

I will try to get it back by one means or another later, sometime after about 7pm UK time.

I appreciate the effort JQ.

Jimbo starts a 9/11 thread and, within an hour or so, the whole section disappears?

Come on, that's just too much of a coincidence....

Right, I think I've fixed it.

Unread post markers and the like may be broken, and any URL you've saved pointing to the forum won't work, but all else should be fine.

Cheers Paul -good work!

I did notice the 'Libya' thread seems to have disappeared. Not sure if other threads have also gone.

It's you.
Stop blaming your inadequacies on the clock.

It's 5 minutes into the future - could we get a betting scam going?
