Problems logging on earlier?

The site was down all last night (by my time zone), and it looks like lots of posts and PMs were deleted. Not sure what happened.

It was our web hosting provider's fault. One of their administrator made a big mistake. During some routine maintenance where he was supposed to perform a _file system trim_ he mistakenly performed a _block discard_. The server administrator essentially told the storage platform to drop all the data rather than simply dropping data that had been marked as _deleted_ by our server. As a result, some of the post/pms were deleted.

The good news is that we are back online!!!

My first thought when the site wouldn't load was "I warned them about posting that damn Halloween script!" I thought for sure Universal had dropped the hammer on us. :eek:

Ditto. Was very confused and alarmed about the afore mentioned issues, too.

Oh well. We're back online ... and that's all that matters.
