I am not sure the cause, a hack of SOME sort, but some of you know of the problems we had this morning. It is basically the erasure of the database.

However, as for such a case, we make a backup a couple times a day and I uploaded the latest good backup back into the database and we may have lost a few posts, which I am sorry about, but we shouldn't have lost that many.

Thank you for your time and patience.

Please accept my apologies.

I am glad that this was resolved. I woke up this morning to find that the site was not working. I looked in the email section and I automatically emailed Tobias Reece and Patrick. I hope that nothing like this ever happens again.

I don't know what Tobias was gonna do. Maybe you meant James.

Hi all

I think the reason Karateka emailed me is because I was the only staff member left on the site.

Even though I couldn't do anything, it was nice that you emailed me

Hey Patrick - I came on to the site and just thought - "NOT AGAIN!!". Good that you have back-up tapes though - but what a pain in the butt!! Anyways, good work and it's good to see everyone back on the site... !
