http://www.ld4all.com is the ONLY adress that works for me.

none of the others work and i can't get to the homepage either.


Note to Pasquale: you might have to readd the www.amazon.co.uk thing again lol.

Concidering all 3 went down it's likely it was a virus or a hacker, as for doing your own backups this is of course a good idea. if Gzip is enabled the forum shouldn't take up much. probably 3mg at most.

oh and umm... months free hosting as an appology? wink5

Also, if anyone is trying to log into their account and you changed your password less than two weeks ago, you may have to log in with your old password. Sorry if that's an inconvinience!

AAGGHH!! angry gil grrr

I lost all the posts that I didn't make about 2 months ago! Man, this sucks. Now half of my posts are gone. cry And there were so many interesting topics that were started, too! And I had that question in the big WILD topic that I went to check up on, and it was gone...and all those posts in the pictures topic...and that other topic...jeez, I'm not taking this very well. ^^

If the backups really are gone...well, I guess the only thing is just to keep going. We'll just have to start those topics over again...still sucks, though.

Data losses always do this to me. sadblauw

i had a long talk with support yesterday.

they said this was the first thing something like that happened to them - all RAID things had failed at once. I don't know what RAID is but it sounds serious grin

it was the first time for them to have the backup lost as well, normally if something goes down they always have a backup from the day before.

Yes, i suspect it was hackers too.. neutral

btw, they have offered me one month of free hosting as compensation.

Yesterday they where busy installing all kinds of new stuff for protection and updated firewalls and what not, so that's why everything was so slow and acted weird.

it looks like today everything is OK again..

oh darn, moogles post has disappeared cry It was one of my favourite posts cry

wow that cry cry smilie really comes in handy now.

I have never tried to to a backup with GZIP, maybe indeed this will compress it more... FYI - the last backup (no GZIP) was 168 MB.

Yeah that sucks all that info was lost.
So many questions unanswered and probably now forgotten. oh well I guess everything happens for a reason.

I'm just glad the site is back up and running. grin

wiske No matter what happens something good comes out of it. When I couldn't get to the site I looked at Sealife and the OLD forum where the ip numbers where shown....and I recnogized quite a few names. It was interesting to see the "birth" of the site. kiekeboe

Hey alteast it was only 2 weeks of data lost. What if it was a couple of months to a years worth. That would really be crappy.
