    evening all.

    this evening I tried a disaster recovery.
    Disaster struck.

    The forum database that everything is built on had become corrupt - I didnt know this.

    We had essentially been backing up corruption. My last sucessful backup was on 09 AUG , so I have had to restore from then.

    In a ironic twist of fate , this has now enforced me to look at an alternative method of backing up the database and alternative means of backing up.

    Apologies for the 6 weeks of lost data.

    I think we have to put a postive spin on the fact that we "only" lost 6 weeks of data.

    If nothing goes wrong, you don't learn. Hell, who's ever built an engine that's made massive power and never broken something!
    The thing is, we have learnt something and this wont happen again.... :)

    That explains why the Quadra rear discs group buy has disappeared!

    Bad luck with the corrupted database though. Shit happens unfortunately - especially where computers are concerned!

    we have all been corrupted by the Renault disease of Unreliable but true love and boostaholic's anonymous would never have been set up without the odd "falling over" moments...
    we live, we learn .... Keep up the great work Andy (y)

    Do the "hosts" not have any backups? Or does the club host itself so to speak. Just a thought.

    If you note that we did have backups. Of corruption , so no good.
