Database crash. Long story but you can also thank a "wolf in sheep's clothing" amongst us. I don't want to give out too many details for fear that it will happen again, but someone intentionally caused it.

What a pain in the ass it was to bring the site back up. I still have a few issues to work out...but you all can post for the most part.

Good work Dave.
Just what you needed, eh?
Are you saying this could happen again? From the same individual? Another "sheep in the herd"?

Course it could happen again . . . .
It's the net - everything is exposed all the time!

Sheep in the herd is kinda bullshit tho - anyone can register an account.
Unless that sheep is part of admin - and in that case it ain't the herd! It's a personal problem!


But - with proper planning and maintenance - like anything else %[email protected]
it would be a 24hr deal at most to recover from most any crash/attack/hack if:

1) A sqldump was backed up a few times a day, automagically - think CRON!
2) Constant version updating (you know vb is at 3.6.8 right??)

That said - glad it's back . . .
Hope it's managed a little tighter perhaps?
Can't count on the moco for maintenance now can we hmmmm??

This site is fun to read and to post.
Thank you DP for your hard work bringing this thing running...

When the site was down...DP had a message on the opening page that you could see that said he "Has about 85% of the corrupted files fixed". Someone must have succeeded in sending a virus that got past DPs security.

Anyone else know what happened?

mild withdrawal

I think a few of us may have been suffering from mild withdrawal as the days went on and on. :laugh:
